Abstract:

Ampere-hour capacity outputs have been determined on a 22 Ah battery at discharge rates of 22 A to 600 A, at 75 F and at -40 F. 100 A charging was carried out at 32 F to 120 F to measure end of charge battery parameters. Oxygen pressure decay rates were measured at 75 F, 0 F, and -40 F. The CdCdOH2 coulometer was charge-discharge cycled at 75 F and at -40 F. Boost modules were assembled and operated, controlling output current as a function of bus voltage and battery temperature. Temperature compensating circuits have been designed and tested. The logic circuit was breadboarded and tested for the following design features temperature correction and componesation battery to bus connection Adhydrode amplifier power cutoff interrogation and low drain circuits.
