Rapid Charging Batteries for Electric Propulsion Systems 720109

Requirements and constraints for rapid charging batteries used for both pulse load and deep cycle service are outlined. Methods for fast recharging nickel-cadmium and lead acid batteries are described. A new rapid charge concept wherein nickel-cadmium batteries are both rapid charged and reconditioned is presented. Similarly, a unique method of fast charging lead acid batteries is described and illustrated. Areas of required technology improvements in batteries and electronic control devices for rapid charge application are outlined.
