Abstract:

An electrical equivalent circuit for nickel-cadmium batteries, using GC23C cells, is derived that has fixed, lumped parameter circuit elements and is scalable for series connected cells. Some of the individual circuit elements are investigated to determine if they can be related to physiochemical phenomena in the batteries. The results of this work show that equivalent circuits that are useful to the electrical engineer are feasible and that its elements are interpretable. Author
