If you want to learn how to model electrochemical reactions and analyze the important characteristics of your electrodeposition cells in COMSOL Multiphysics®, this is the course for you. During the online 3-day training course, we will introduce you to the electrochemistry modeling functionality in COMSOL®, the Electrochemistry Module, and the Electrodeposition Module.
To teach this course, we will use a combination of instructor- and self-guided hands-on exercises as well as theoretical and practical lectures. We will describe in detail the electric potential in electrodes, electrolytes, and electrode kinetics as well as how to combine multiple electrode reactions in one electrode. Furthermore, we will investigate the effects that chemical species transport has on electrochemical reaction kinetics. During the training exercises, you will also learn how to account for ohmic, activation, and concentration overpotential and define chemical and electrochemical reactions in COMSOL®. You will also see how simulation can help you predict the effects that electrode geometry, material properties, and operating conditions have on the performance of electrochemical cells. In addition, we will give an overview of the dedicated electrochemistry features that are available for simulating amperometry, potentiometry, and more.
We will also have a look at porous electrodes and the deposition or dissolution of electrodes and investigate the features in the Electrodeposition Module that can be used for simulating the effects that geometric changes have on electrochemical processes, modeling moving boundaries, and predicting thickness in deposited layers.
