Charging Requirements of Automotive Propulsion-Type Batteries 690130

This paper concerns the charging requirements of series and/or parallel-connected groups of individual cells, with and without connected loads, and the importance of their internal resistance and counter emf when charged from probable energy sources having widely varying voltage and limited current capabilities. Rapid recharging, control means, circuitry, and component devices are discussed. An extensive bibliography covers items of historical and related interest and is useful for further knowledge of specific items such as British and American surveys comparing battery types, fuel cells versus fused-salt electrolyte batteries and combinations thereof, renewable electrode recharging, and so forth.
