Abstract:

Six different batteries used in Coast Guard battery systems for aids to navigation were comparatively tested by discharging each system through the same flashing lamp load. Curves of open and closed circuit voltage versus time and versus delivered ampere hours are presented. The effect is discussed in internal battery resistance on the effective candlepower of the flashing lamp. Author
