GRK 2218/1: SiMET - Simulation of mechanical-electrical-thermal processes in lithium-ion batteries (2017-2021)

The German Research Foundation (DFG) is funding the Research Training Group "SiMET - Simulation of Mechanical-Electrical-Thermal Processes in Lithium-Ion Batteries" (GRK 2218) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in cooperation with the Offenburg University of Applied Sciences and the Helmholtz Institute Ulm. SiMET has been running since April 1, 2017 and is funded for an initial period of four and a half years. In the Research Training Group, doctoral students from various scientific disciplines are working on models that can be used, among other things, to simulate how differences in the internal structure affect the behavior of batteries in operation.
