Scalable, durable, and safe
enough for EV infrastructure.
Visualization of the concentration of V3+ and VO2+ ions (top), V2+ and
VO2+ ions (middle), and electrolyte potential (bottom) in a vanadium
redox ﬂow battery.
When developing rechargeable batteries for electric vehicle
(EV) infrastructure, vanadium is a stronger contender than
lithium. Advantages include scalability, longer and more
consistent operation lifetimes, and safety. But vanadium redox
ﬂow batteries (VRFBs) do bring shortcomings of their own.
Engineers looking to improve EV charging infrastructure often
start by optimizing VRFB designs.
The COMSOL Multiphysics® software is used for simulating
designs, devices, and processes in all ﬁelds of engineering,
manufacturing, and scientiﬁc research. See how you can apply
it to modeling vanadium redox ﬂow batteries.
