      Hello,

      We are currently using an academic version of ANSYS Fluent 21.2. However, when compared to the previous version 19, the busbar and tab components in the conductive zones of the battery module. Have these features been removed when going from version 19 to 21, or is there a way to re-access them in version 21? A screenshot comparing the conductive zones of the two different versions has been attached, version 2021 without the missing components is on the right.

      Hello, 

       

      Looks like busbars and tabs are combined under the passive components. Check out this excerpt from the latest version of the Fluent user's guide:"Battery cells are modeled as active zones; and battery tabs and busbars are modeled as passive zones. "

      Thanks for your help, and happy new year! One more question: Is the battery pack builder also available in the aforementioned academic version of Fluent?

      Any updates on this? According to Ansys learning hub, there should be a battery pack builder, is there a way to activate it for academic use?

      You should be able to use it on academic licenses. Please look at Chapter 19: Battery Model Text Commands (ansys.com) to enable the battery pack builder menu.
