Abstract: We have analyzed the galvanostatic discharge process of insertion electrodes controlled by lithium ion diffusion in solid materials. It is demonstrated by mathematic calculation that the discharge capacity of insertion electrode depends on the value of Q(defined as the ratio of discharge hour rate and diffusion time constant). The galvanostatic discharge curve of spinel LiMn2O4 cathode and graphite anode have been simulated. The effect of particle size on the discharge capacity of spinel LiMn2O4 cathode and graphite anode is evaluated.
