Mathematical modeling of batteries on the continuum scale will be reviewed in this presentation by way of several examples taken from my career. The purpose of such modeling is to develop a model that can be used to make predictions of the performance of the battery and its lifetime based on anticipated operation of the battery. Usually, we seek a model that is as simple as possible, but does not “throw the baby out with the bath water.” In addition, we seek a model that does not require significant computation time since it is necessary to validate the model based on experimental data. It has been and still is a challenge to develop a model of a battery of interest in a timely manner so that it can be useful in industry. Fortunately, the software package named COMSOL Multiphysics is available to help us in the development of models of batteries, and this software includes a significant library of such models. Some examples of industrially useful mathematical models of batteries will be presented.
