Title: Advanced secondary batteries for electric vehicle propulsion. [Battery development goals and status]

Abstract

A number of near-term and advanced secondary batteries that are projected to meet performance and cost requirements for electric vehicle applications are currently under development in the U.S.A. Development of the near-term battery technology has been accelerated as a result of the impetus of the Electric and Hybrid Vehicles Research, Development, and Demonstration Act of 1976 (Public Law 94-413). Research and development of the advanced battery technology have been under way for several years, and, because this technology has recently entered the engineering stage, research and development efforts have dramatically increased. Of the near-term batteries, lead--acid, nickel--iron, and nickel--zinc systems show promise for use in vehicles with limited range and applications. Zinc--chlorine, sodium--sulfur, and lithium--metal sulfide systems are the most promising advanced batteries under development, and are expected to have considerably better performance than the near-term batteries. This paper reviews the battery development goals, and discusses the status and prospect of these battery systems. 2 figures, 5 tables.
