1. A system for modeling a lead-acid battery in the form of a representative electrical circuit comprising:

  • an electrical circuit comprising;

    a charging circuit configured to simulate the initial charging of the battery and having a capacitor configured for charging to a first voltage;

    an electrochemical reaction circuit comprising;

    a plurality of capacitors configured to simulate the charging and discharging of the battery due to internal chemical reactions and configured for charging to a second voltage;

    a plurality of resistors for simulating the resistance of the battery;

    a voltage drop circuit including a resistor and a capacitor configured to simulate capacitive charging and discharging of the battery and configured for charging to a third voltage;

    wherein the representative circuit is implemented through a computer-based simulation.
