Detailed One-Dimensional Air Electrode Model



As observed in the previous chapter, the volume expansion of the zinc electrode during ZAB discharge can flood the pores of the GDL with liquid electrolyte. A model-based analysis is applied in this chapter of the thesis to assess the implications of flooding on the air electrode overpotential, and the oxygen distribution within the air electrode. This chapter is based on the publications [72], [73], and [74].
