About this book

Addressing the challenge of improving battery quality while reducing high costs and environmental impacts of the production, this book presents a multiscale simulation approach for battery production systems along with a software environment and an application procedure.

Battery systems are among the most important technologies of the 21st century since they are enablers for the market success of electric vehicles and stationary energy storage solutions. However, the performance of batteries so far has limited possible applications. Addressing this challenge requires an interdisciplinary understanding of dynamic cause-effect relationships between processes, equipment, materials, and environmental conditions.
The approach in this book supports the integrated evaluation of improvement measures and is usable for different planning horizons. It is applied to an exemplary battery cell production and module assembly in order to demonstrate the effectiveness and potential benefits of the simulation.

Chapter 1. Introduction
Abstract
Battery systems for energy storage are among the most relevant technologies of the 21\(^{ {st}}\) century. They – in particular modern lithium-ion batteries (LIB) – are enablers for the market success of electric vehicles (EV) as well as for stationary energy storage solutions for balancing fluctuations in electricity grids resulting from the integration of renewable energy sources with volatile supply.

Chapter 2. Battery Production and Simulation
Abstract
This chapter introduces relevant background information about the production of battery components and the assembly of battery systems (Sect. 2.1) as well as about how simulation can be used to imitate the behavior of production systems (Sect. 2.2).

Chapter 3. State of Research for Multiscale Simulation of Production Systems
Abstract
This chapter presents the state of research in areas related to multiscale simulation of production systems. There are various generic or specific simulation applications for production systems of which many were reviewed in order to provide an overview about existing approaches, underline the relevance of production system simulation, and to get inspiration for specific methodological solutions. This chapter explains the selection of reviewed approaches and the definition of evaluation criteria (Sect. 3.1) as well as the evaluation of the selected approaches (Sect. 3.2). The chapter concludes with an identified research demand (Sect. 3.3).

Chapter 4. Multiscale Simulation Modeling Concept for Battery Production Systems
Abstract
The purpose of a multiscale simulation of battery production systems is enabling an integrated evaluation of improvement measures regarding production costs, product quality, and environmental impacts, as well as gaining interdisciplinary system understanding.

Chapter 5. Implementation of a Multiscale Core Model
Abstract
The concept of a multiscale simulation for battery production systems is centered around a process chain model which acts as a coordinator for other models. Such process chain model determines the activities within a production system and derives inputs for detailed models of system elements. Consequently, this model is a key component of multiscale simulations.

Chapter 6. Exemplary Application
Abstract
The developed multiscale simulation concept is exemplary applied to two different battery production systems. The purpose of this application is demonstrating the use of the simulation concept, the core model, the development of detailed models, as well as the interpretation of simulation results. Since the simulation is applicable for all production stages and different objectives, the application is demonstrated for cell production (Sect. 6.1) as well as for the assembly of battery modules (Sect. 6.2).

Chapter 7. Summary and Outlook
Abstract
This chapter summarizes the presented work (Sect. 7.1), gives a critical review of the achieved results (Sect. 7.2), and provides an outlook by suggesting further research (Sect. 7.3).
