Abstract Scope In aluminium production, the performance of the anode assembly is a great concern which is mainly associated with its energy consumption, aging, fabrication and cleaning process. Therefore, a better understanding of its in situ behavior is required to efficiently optimize the process using an improved design. In this work, electrical and thermal data have been measured on anode assemblies using a specific in situ instrumentation during a complete anode cycle at Aluminerie Alouette Inc. With the help of a numerical model developed on the ANSYS Workbench platform, the resistance and current distribution evolution along the anode assembly components has been determined over a complete anode cycle. Considering these information, an innovative prototype has been designed which gave promising results at the laboratory scale. The next step is to confirm the performance of this new design in a real cell.
