Abstract Scope A mathematical model coupling 3D electrical currents distribution, magnetic field fluxes and magnetohydrodynamic behaviour of aluminium electrolysis cell is presented. COMSOL Multiphysics® is used as a software tool for the development of the present model. Implementation of electrical current carrying busbars by using line conductors and evaluation of the MHD with the help of the shallow water equations method allow for a quick and robust parameters estimation. Sensitive modelling details parameterization and automated report generation features of the model provide an easy-to-use solution for design preliminary evaluation. The modelling results obtained using the developed tool were compared with the results from the modelling software used before and validated according to the measurements. Several simulation scenarios are presented in this paper showing the capability of the developed model to estimate the influence of the aluminium design cell constituent parts on the MHD behaviour of the pot.
