In this paper an extensive overview of different state-of-the arts models, created to simulate the behavior of lithium ion batteries, will be presented. A new classification of different types of models is proposed, which includes models ranging from electrochemical, electrical, thermal and mechanical models. A new classification system, depending on the method the inputs are related to the outputs (i.e. empirical, semi-empirical and physical modeling) is used to distinguish between the large varieties of available models and to classify these models in a structured way. Further, a distinction is made based on the timescale of the modeling. In this way, it is clear if the model in casu is suitable to give information on the short-term behavior or on the long-term behavior of the battery. Finally, the different electrical models, suitable for lithium ion batteries, will be analyzed and compared with special attention to the performance of the different models for simulating the dynamic behavior of the batteries.
