total cell volume

total cell volume (TCV)

a measure of the adequacy of urea clearance of a hemodialyzer, calculated as the volume of saline necessary to fill its blood compartment. It declines slightly with each reuse of the dialyzer.

However, there are some problems that need to be solved, such as their low power density that increases the size of the power generation part and, as a result, increases the total cell volume.
Volume fraction in a computational cell is defined as the ratio of the volume open to metal flow relative to the total cell volume.
