Power sources - Volume 9

Abstract

Thirty-seven papers from the major battery research and development centers of the world constitute the proceedings. The largest group of these papers is dedicated to the lithium systems which are becoming increasingly important in contemporary battery technology. Notable ones deal with rechargeable lithium systems and the propulsion of miniature aircraft for covert operational use using high energy density lithium systems. The lead acid battery industry has also contributed nine papers which again reflect the advancing front of technology. Fully-sealed units of high specific energy are now readily achievable. However, it is interesting to note that the classical tubular positive electrode is still considered sufficiently important to warrant the first paper of the Conference Proceedings. There are a few papers concerned with the zinc electrode in alkali. However, one paper from this group is devoted to the silver oxide electrode and one deals with separators for this cell. This underlines the search for new methods to operate with the zinc electrode commercially, that is, in addition to the primary applications. Only one paper contains the words fuel cell in the title and this reflects the disenchantment of the industry with the fuel cell concept. The amount of research in this area  More>>

Only one paper contains the words fuel cell in the title and this reflects the disenchantment of the industry with the fuel cell concept. The amount of research in this area has been severely restricted although it is clear that spin-off applications such as a paper devoted to the storage of hydrogen using the silver-hydrogen system still continue to benefit from the technique established during what might be called the fuel-cell dream period. A final paper describes the only thermal battery contribution.}
