1 Introduction

With the development of clean energy and the rapid growth of the electric vehicle market, lithium-ion batteries, as a high-energy-density, lightweight battery technology, have received increasing attention. As a mainstream type of lithium-ion battery, ternary lithium batteries have become one of the first choices in electric vehicles and other fields due to their high energy density, long cycle life and excellent safety performance. Understanding their structural composition and conducting performance optimization research is of great significance to improving battery performance and promoting the development of clean energy technology.

2. The structure of ternary lithium battery

The structure of ternary lithium battery mainly includes positive electrode, negative electrode, electrolyte and separator:

Positive electrode material: The positive electrode of the ternary lithium battery uses lithium nickel cobalt manganese oxide (LiNiCoMnO2, referred to as NCM) as the main material. NCM material has high capacity and good cycle stability and is one of the current mainstream positive electrode materials.

Negative electrode material: The negative electrode of the ternary lithium battery generally uses graphite as the main material, which has good conductivity and stability, and can realize the embedding and de-embedding of lithium ions.

Electrolyte: The electrolyte of ternary lithium battery generally adopts organic solvents, such as carbonates, polymer electrolytes, etc. The main function of the electrolyte is to provide a channel for ion transmission, so that lithium ions can migrate between the positive and negative electrodes.

Diaphragm: Diaphragm is mainly used to separate positive and negative electrodes to prevent short circuit and mixing of electrolyte. High-quality diaphragm should have good conductivity and ion transmission performance, as well as sufficient mechanical strength and thermal stability.

3. Effect of structural composition on the performance of ternary lithium batteries

The structural composition of ternary lithium batteries directly affects their performance, which is mainly reflected in the following aspects:

Energy density: The selection of positive and negative electrode materials directly affects the energy density of the battery. Optimizing the ratio and structure of positive and negative electrode materials can improve the energy density of the battery.

Cycle life: The stability of the cathode material and the conductivity of the electrolyte have an important influence on the cycle life of the battery. Reasonable design of the microstructure of the cathode material and optimization of the electrolyte composition can extend the cycle life of the battery.

Safety: The safety of the battery is closely related to the thermal stability of the cathode material and the stability of the electrolyte. Selecting cathode materials and electrolytes with good thermal stability can improve the safety of the battery.

4. Possible ways to optimize performance

Regarding the structural composition of ternary lithium batteries, possible ways to optimize performance include but are not limited to the following aspects:

Material design: By synthesizing new positive and negative electrode materials, optimizing their structure and performance, and improving the energy density and cycle life of the battery.

Electrolyte optimization: Study the composition and structure of the electrolyte, improve its ion transport performance and thermal stability, and improve the safety performance of the battery.

Diaphragm improvement: Develop diaphragm materials with better ion transport performance and mechanical strength to reduce battery internal resistance and improve battery charge and discharge efficiency.

5 Conclusion

The structural composition of ternary lithium batteries has an important influence on their performance. Through in-depth research on their structural composition and exploration of performance optimization, the energy density, cycle life and safety performance of ternary lithium batteries can be further improved, promoting their widespread application in the field of clean energy.
