The application of the fractional calculus for modeling electrochemical double layer capacitors is a novel way to get simpler and precise models. On using the impedance spectroscopy method, experimental results for different values have been obtained. In this paper, several classical mathematical models are studied and a different method is introduced in order to get a model from electrochemical double layer capacitors. This method is based on distinct models with fractional elements, and some parameters of the models are fitted to the experimental data, with minimal error. Finally, a Havriliak–Negami function based model is proposed. It achieves excellent fitting to the whole frequency interval analyzed.
