In this paper, effective and systematic steps in the mathematical modeling of high-fidelity battery models for simulating energy storage systems (ESS) will be presented. Two approaches to battery modeling will be discussed in this article: (1) equivalent electrical circuit approach, and (2) electrochemical approach. The battery models discussed in this article are developed using Modelica 3.2.1 and commercialized as part of the Battery Component Library in MapleSim ® 2015.
