Hi everybody, I'm trying to simulate a water cooled battery pack of an hybrid car. To set up the simulation I followed the "Multi-Part Solid: Graphics Card Cooling" tutorial in the software help.

I defined the interfaces between different materials as part-based contact interfaces.

The resulting mesh is conformal in the majority of the interface surfaces.

While setting the the heat sources I gathered all the cells in one subgroup and defined it as a total heat source. This way, while simulating, the cells does not generate power. To ensure the rest of the model was set up correctly i tried to set the cells as a temperature sources and it works perfectly.

Anyway I'm interested to know the convergence temperature of the cells and not ti set it up as a fixed value. Anyone can explain me what I did wrong?
