The rapid development of lithium-ion battery industry has put forward an urgent demand for qualified and efficient practical personnel. New energy technologies/ materials include lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells, photovoltaic cells, hydrogen energy, etc. Lithium-ion battery teaching content is an important component of new energy technology/materials courses. How to introduce software simulation into lithium-ion battery classroom teaching is the focus of this paper. This paper introduces the structure diagram, working principle, concept and aging mechanism of lithium ion battery related to software simulation technology. Combining software simulation technology with classroom teaching can play a complementary role. Software simulation technology can strengthen the basic knowledge and the application scenario of lithium ion battery. Classroom teaching can provide foundation and theoretical support for software modelling.
