Abstract:

The tasks relating to the optimization of the electro-chemical aspects of cell design were primarily divided into three major categories as follows The effects of various electrochemical treatments on the energy density of the nickel oxide positive electrode were evaluated In order to maximize the ratio of negative electrode capacity to electrode weight, the performance levels of pasted cadmium CdO electrodes were studied The effects of electrolyte quantity and concentration on cell performance were studied Furthermore, the ratio of negative to positive plate ampere-hour capacities was found to have a marked effect on overall cell performance. The desired optimum ratio was ultimately accomplished by increasing both the porosity and volume of the negative electrode. Author
