The USAMERDC Vehicular Propulsion Program: Applications and Testing of Molten Salt Batteries 690207

High energy density secondary battery systems are being considered for application in military electrical vehicular propulsion. Battery evaluation is carried out with a facility which controls tests by automatically maintaining electrical levels and changing modes of operation at preset limits. Lithium-chlorine cells tested and reported on demonstrate development improvement in energy output and efficiencies. Cell cycle life and rates are approaching goals for system applications. Responses of the system to milk truck and random military programs are analyzed.
