Suitable Position of Reference Electrode in Three-Electrode Cell for Impedance Measurements in Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Battery Investigated By Finite Element Method
In the present study, we proposed the best position of the reference electrode for measurement of the impedance spectra of the positive and negative electrodes in the LIRB cell by using a three-electrode cell. A symmetrical model for the LIRB cell is used for the FEM simulation. The simulations of the current and potential distributions for both electrodes are performed by FEM. The impedance spectra of both electrodes were also calculated by FEM to discuss the effect of the position of the reference electrode on the current distribution between both electrodes.
