Abstract:

BATTERY.BAS is a BASIC program that automatically executes battery cycling experiments, takes voltage-current data, monitors open circuit voltage, and some combinations of these tests. Since the program is written in interpretive BASIC, the user has the flexibility to modify some experimental parameters while the experiment is in progress. Data are saved in various sequential ASCII files that can be accessed by any program that can read ASCII files. SlideWrite Plus Advanced Graphics Software, Inc., for example, is used for graphical presentation of data. Some utility programs are included to manipulate data collected by the program. Typical manipulations are separation of individual cycles from multiple cycle data and conversion of voltage-time data to voltage-charge data. Computer program Electrical batteries.
