Li-ion batteries are ubiquitous in portable electronics,
automotive applications, and stationary power storage.
Accurate mathematical models of their behaviour and corresponding
computational tools are necessary for battery cell development and
also pack design with existing cells. Accurate models are also necessary
for real time control for performance and lifetime optimization in use
and charging. Simple equivalent circuit models are known to not describe
behaviour at high current rates well enough and more detailed,
electrochemical models are needed. Our group improves the accuracy of
these models and designs accurate numerical methods to approximate their
solution. Our recent work is focussed on improving the efficiency of
these computations, using scientific computing and machine
learning techniques, to allow their use in real time control.
