Abstract

A cathode half cell physics-based model for a St. Jude Medical fabricated silver vanadium oxide (SVO) cathode coin cell battery was constructed. The model is based on a single particle Fick's second law approach with the open-circuit potential modeled with a Redlich-Kister equation. By assuming that lithium ions intercalate only through the ends of the cuboid SVO particles, the model is able to predict accurately the discharge profile of experimental cathode half cell coin cells.
