Abstract:

Factors that are not of major significance in low rate battery discharges become quite important when a battery is used to crank an aircraft turbine engine. Apparatus was designed and built to facilitate the study of nickelcadmium aircraft batteries when used in this and other high rate applications. Maximum discharge rates of 1000 amperes or more are possible with 24-volt batteries. Load configurations may be readily modified. Discharge profiles are simulated by use of fixed load steps which may be timed either automatically or manually. This document describes the equipment and gives instructions for its use. Author
