Abstract:

Unit cells and modules of the conventional cell battery type were constructed and design verification tests were performed on 0.2 ampere-hour and 0.06 ampere-hour cells. The design concept for a battery system utilizing individual cells in series was established. Experimental work on thin electrode fabrication techniques for both positive and negative electrodes continued and preparation of thin, foil type duplex electrodes was investigated. Electrode electrical performance was checked to establish the voltage level as a function of current density of discharge. The design of a battery system utilizing the pile duplex electrode construction was initiated. Multiple cell duplex electrode modules representing the projected design were tested at various discharge loads. The study of the battery section of the battery-converter approach to the Missile Power Supply was initiated. Author
