# PouchGeometry

Pouch geometry for battery cell

Since R2022b

## Description

Use `PouchGeometry` to represent the geometry of a pouch battery cell. To specify the dimensions of a pouch geometry, set the object properties.

## Creation

### Syntax

``pouch = PouchGeometry``
``pouch = PouchGeometry(Name=Value)``

### Description

Note

To use this object, at the MATLAB® Command Window, run this command at least once:

`import simscape.battery.builder.*; `

````pouch = PouchGeometry` creates a pouch geometry with default property values.```
````pouch = PouchGeometry(Name=Value)` sets properties using one or more name-value arguments.```

## Properties

expand all

Length of the pouch, 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: `pouch.Length = simscape.Value(0.23,"m")`

Example: `pouch.Length = 0.23`

Thickness of the pouch, 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: `pouch.Thickness = simscape.Value(0.045,"m")`

Example: `pouch.Thickness = 0.01`

Height of the pouch, specified as a positive scalar or a `simscape.Value` object that represents a positive scalar with a unit of length. The height of the pouch 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: `pouch.Height = simscape.Value(0.28,"m")`

Example: `pouch.Height = 0.28`

Location of the pouch tabs, specified as `"Standard"` or `"Opposed"`.

Example: `pouch.tabLocation = "Standard"`

Width of the pouch tabs, 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 the value of the `Length` property.

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: `pouch.TabWidth = simscape.Value(0.04, "m")`

Example: `pouch.TabWidth = 0.04`

Height of the pouch tabs, 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 the value of the `Height` property.

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: `pouch.TabHeight = simscape.Value(0.03, "m")`

Example: `pouch.TabHeight = 0.03`
