DEFACTO: Batteriedesign und Fertigungsoptimierung durch multiphysikalische Modellierung

Sponsor: : European commission – Horizon 2020 (GA: 875247)

Contact person: Silas Wolf

Summary of the overall project:

DEFACTO is a project within the framework of the EU funding programme Horizon 2020. The aim of the project is to develop a tool for multiphysic and multiscale modelling of battery materials, the manufacturing process and cell behaviour. The improved understanding should then lead to an acceleration of the development process for novel cell types and to the optimization of established processes. 13 project partners are involved, including Spanish, French, Belgian and German partners. The main task of iPAT is the development of models for simulating the battery electrode process chain.

Goals and tasks of iPAT

  • Simulation of the dispersing of single carbon black agglomerates via resolved CFD-DEM coupling
  • Combination of resolved and unresolved CFD-DEM coupling for simulating the structure formation during battery electrode drying
  • Simulation of the calendaring step
  • Measurement of material properties
  • Fabrication and characterization of battery electrodes
