The aim of the project is to better understand and to give simulations for a successful model for the charging and discharging of lithium-ion batteries, which are currently the most promising storage devices to store and convert chemical energy into electrical energy and vice versa. The model exhibits phase transition under different small parameter regimes and gives rise to hysteresis. We study these phenomena using the interpretation of the model as a stochastic particle system, with the goal of providing stability bounds, fast simulations, improvement of the model itself and optimization of the device.
