The Thermally Activated Battery Simulator, or TABS, is a collection of software tools, developed by Sandia National Laboratories, specifically designed for performance simulations of thermal batteries. It enables a battery engineer or designer to quickly assess the thermal and electrochemical performance of a design using an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) on a desktop computer. TABS is comprised of two modules: Full Battery (TABS-FB) and Single Cell (TABS-SC). TABS is currently on its fifth major release (v5.0).
