Research and Development in Non-Mechanical Electrical Power Sources contains the proceedings of the 6th International Power Sources Symposium held in Brighton, UK, in September 1968. The papers explore research and development in non-mechanical sources of electric power such as lead-acid batteries, nickel-cadmium batteries, and solid state batteries. This book is comprised of 38 chapters and opens with a discussion on the charge acceptance of positive and negative electrodes in lead-acid cells. The following chapters deal with the effect of temperature and current density on the utilization of lead and lead oxide electrodes; anomalies of the negative plate in the lead-acid battery; curing of lead-acid battery plates; and specific properties of small closed lead accumulators using an immobilized electrolyte. Water-activated dry-charged lead-acid batteries, coated nickel electrodes, and nickel-cadmium batteries are also described. The final chapter is devoted to the methods of making GeSi alloys, their properties, and their use in thermoelectric generators. This monograph will be a valuable resource for electrical engineers.A circuit diagram and electrical characteristics are given for the completely automatic charging process which has been ... A comparison of power/weight and power/volume ratios with electrically similar sealed nickel cadmium batteries follows, anbsp;...
