Battery Modeling with ANSYS Fluent


This course is designed for existing users of ANSYS Fluent and it introduces the users to the capabilities of ANSYS Fluent with regards to Batteries, Battery Packs, and Battery Systems.  The course also discusses Electrochemical Reaction Modeling which is one of the key physics required for battery modelling, but which also has several other applications.  For battery-specific applications, both the Single-Potential Model (useful for explicit modeling of electrodes) and the MSMD (multi-scale multi-dimensional) Dual-Potential Model (useful for efficient yet accurate simulations) are covered.  The course also addresses methods for analyzing battery packs as well as including the effects of short-circuits and thermal abuse.  Best practices for battery geometry, meshing and battery connections are covered, and include troubleshooting advice for some typical solver issues.  ROMs and their role in simulating Battery Systems are introduced, including how ROMs can be generated and used in Twin Builder.  The course finishes with an overview of new features in release 2019R2 and 2019R3.  The knowledge gained will enable the user to select the most appropriate modeling approaches for their particular applications and simulation objectives.


  • Completion of the Introduction to ANSYS Fluent course is required.

  • Experience with ANSYS Fluent is strongly recommended.

  • Experience with Watertight Geometry Workflow in ANSYS Fluent Meshing is recommended


Target Audience: ANSYS Fluent users working in the areas of batteries, battery packs and battery  systems

Teaching Method: Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge.

Learning Options: Training materials for this course are available with a ANSYS Learning Hub Subscription. If there is no active public schedule available, private training can be arranged. Please contact us.
