Modeling of secondary lithium batteries is reviewed in this paper. The models available to simulate the electrochemical and thermal behavior of secondary lithium batteries are discussed considering not only their electrochemical representation (transport phenomena and thermodynamics of the system), but also the mathematical techniques that have been used for solving the equations. A brief review of the governing equations for porous electrodes, and methods for solving these equations is also given.
