PrismaticGeometry

Prismatic geometry for battery cell

Description

Use PrismaticGeometry to represent the geometry of a prismatic battery cell. To specify the dimensions of a prismatic geometry, use the Length, Thickness, and Height properties.

Creation

Description

import simscape.battery.builder.*; prism = PrismaticGeometry creates a prismatic geometry with default property values.

import simscape.battery.builder.*; prism = PrismGeometry(Name=Value) creates a prism geometry with a specified length, height, and thickness using name-value arguments.

Properties

expand all

Length of the prism, specified as a positive scalar or a simscape.Value object that represents a positive scalar with a unit of length. This value must be less than 5 meters.

If you set this property directly with a positive scalar value instead of using a simscape.Value object, the object converts the value to a simscape.Value object with meter as its physical unit.

Example: prism.Length = simscape.Value(0.3,"m")

Example: prism.Length = 0.3

Thickness of the prism, specified as a positive scalar or a simscape.Value object that represents a positive scalar with a unit of length. This value must be less than 0.5 meters.

If you set this property directly with a positive scalar value instead of using a simscape.Value object, the object converts the value to a simscape.Value object with meter as its physical unit.

Example: prism.Thickness = simscape.Value(0.045,"m")

Example: prism.Thickness = 0.045

Height of the prism, specified as a positive scalar or a simscape.Value object that represents a positive scalar with a unit of length. The height of the prism is aligned with the z-axis of the reference frame. This value must be strictly positive.

If you set this property directly with a positive scalar value instead of using a simscape.Value object, the object converts the value to a simscape.Value object with meter as its physical unit.

Example: prism.Height = simscape.Value(0.15,"m")

Example: prism.Height = 0.15
