Serial simulation is required to predict the behavior of an electrochemical
system undergoing many processes. This is demonstrated through the simulat
ion of charge/open-circuit/discharge processes of a thin film nickel hydrox
ide electrode. The numerical issues involved in this kind of simulation are
discussed. An efficient and robust procedure is presented. It can be easil
y used to achieve the serial simulation of electrochemical processes, e.g.,
battery cycling, cyclic voltammetry etc. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. Al
