Efficient Thermal Runaway Modeling for Sensitivity, Parametric, and Variability Analysis

Under certain off-nominal conditions, Li-ion cells can generate excessive heat and gas due to the initiation of several exothermic decomposition reactions, which result in a catastrophic failure known as thermal runaway. Thermal runaway is a highly complex phenomenon involving various physical and chemical processes such as heat and mass transfer, turbulent fluid flow, and chemical reactions. In addition, thermal runaway behavior of Li-ion cells is subject to variability, resulting in different possible outcomes depending on the trigger method, state-of-charge, age, configuration it is assembled into, and environment.
