STORAGE BATTERIES: GENERAL
STORAGE BATTERIES: GENERAL151. A storage battery is a device which can be used repeatedly for storing energy at one time in the form of chemical energy for use at another time in the form of electrical energy. It consists of two kinds of plates bearing the necessary electrochemically active materials immersed in a proper solution. The solution is called the electrolyte. Charging a battery consists of connecting the two terminals to a dc supply of proper polarity for a sufficient length of time. Electrical energy is delivered by the dc supply to the battery, in which it produces certain chemical reactions so that the energy is converted into chemical energy. If a charged battery has its two terminals connected through a closed external electric circuit, the acti…
