Abstract:

An experimental investigation of the effect of electrolyte carbonate-ion contamination on the capacity-voltage behavior of sintered plate nickel-cadmium aircraft batteries is described. An electrolyte analysis and a renewal procedure are presented and shown to be adquate and potentially useful at depot level. Specifications for the electrolyte of less than 26 grams of K2CO3 per liter of electrolyte with an electrolyte alkalinity of 7.45 or - 0.05 normal, for maximum capacity output over imposed environmental and electrical conditions of an aircraft, are recommended.
