One of the most interesting and staggering solutions of the Einstein equation is the black hole. In recent years, numerical relativity has experienced a tremendous growth, generating a wealth of information about astrophysical black hole binaries; however, few studies explore the physics of charged black hole binaries. The goal of this thesis is to study, numerically, the dynamics of such systems, from head-on collisions to orbiting binaries and advance our understanding of strong-field gravitation and electromagnetism in this largely unexplored territory.
