Demand for energy storage facilities and non-fossil fuel powered vehicle has furthered the research into Liion batteries. In this work, an electrochemical Lithiumion battery model was built taking into account the electrochemical reactions is presented. The mathematical model is validated against experimental data for LCO cell operating under 1 C electrical load at room temperature. Electrode thickness and the porosity of the positive electrode were varied to determine the influence on the battery capacity.
