In this work a mathematical model for describing the performance of lithium-ion battery electrodes consisting of porous active material particles is presented. The model represents an extension of the Newman-type model, accounting for the Agglomerate structure of the active material particles, here Li(Ni1/3Co1/3Mn1/3)O2 (NCM) and Li(Ni1/3Co1/3Al1/3)O2 (NCA). To this goal, an additional pore space is introduced on the active material level. The space is filled with electrolyte and a charge-transfer reaction takes place at the liquid-solid interface within the porous active material particles. Volume-averaging techniques are used to derive the model equations. A local Thiele modulus is defined and provides an insight into the potentially limiting factors on the active material level. The introduction of a liquid-phase ion transport within the active material reduces the overall transport losses, while the additional active surface area within the agglomerate lowers the charge-transfer resistance. As a consequence, calculated discharge capacities are higher for particles modeled as agglomerates. This finding is more pronounced in the case of high C-rates.
