    H2O H+ +OH-

  • Loss of Water: Due to evaporation, self discharge and electrolysis of water while charging. Hence water content must be regularly checked and distilled water must be added.

www.bookspar.com | Website for Students | VTU NOTES | QUESTION PAPERS


Battery technology

  • Sulfation: If left in uncharged state, for a prolonged period, or operated at too high temperatures or at too high acid concentrations, transformation of porous PbSO4 into dense and coarse grained form by re crystallization.

    * This results in passivation of negative plates inhibiting their charge acceptance.

www.bookspar.com | Website for Students | VTU NOTES | QUESTION PAPERS


Battery technology

  • Corrosion of Grid: Can occur due to overcharging when grid metal gets exposed to the electrolyte. Thisweakens the grid and increases the internal resistance of the battery.

  • Effectiveness of battery is reduced at low temperature due to increase in the viscosity of electrolyte.

www.bookspar.com | Website for Students | VTU NOTES | QUESTION PAPERS


Battery technology

  • Recent years have seen the introduction of “maintenance – free batteries” without a gas – release vent. Here the gassing is controlled by careful choice of the composition of the lead alloys used i.e. by using a Pb-Ca (0.1 % ) as the anode which inhibits the electrolysis of water

  • Alternatively, some modern batteries contain a catalyst (e.g. a mixture of 98% ceria (cerium oxide) & 2% platinum, heated to 1000o C) that combines the hydrogen and oxygen produced during discharge back into water. Thus the battery retains its potency and requires no maintenance. Such batteries are sealed as there is no need to add water and this sealing prevents leakage of cell materials.

Applications.

*Automative: For starting, lighting and ignition of IC engine driven vehicles.

*Consumer Applications: Emergency lighting, security alarm system.

*Heavy duty Application: Trains, lift trucks, mining machines etc.

Battery technology

Advantages:

A lead storage battery is highly efficient. The voltage efficiency of the cell is defined as follows.

Voltage efficiency = average voltage during discharge

average voltage during charge

The voltage efficiency of the lead – acid cell is about 80 %.

The near reversibility is a consequence of the faster rate of the chemical reactions in the cell i.e. anode oxidizes easily and cathode reduces easily leading to an overall reaction with a high negative free energy change.

www.bookspar.com | Website for Students | VTU NOTES | QUESTION PAPERS


Battery technology

  • A lead – acid battery provides a good service for several years. Its larger versions can last 20 to 30 years, if carefully attended (i.e. longer design life)

  • It can be recharged. The number of recharges possible range from 300 to 1500, depending on the battery’s design and conditions. The sealed lead-acid batteries can withstand upto 2000 – rechargings. Generally the most costly, largest, heaviest cells are the longest–lived.

  • The battery’s own internal self – discharging is low.

  • The length of time that is generally required for re-charging process is less i.e. recharge time is 2-8 hours depending on the status of battery.
