Batteries for Energy Storage

Research output: ResearchChapter

Abstract

This chapter discusses the use of batteries for storage of electrical energy. It covers the general principals of how batteries work, with then more specific details on the common types of rechargeable batteries available: Lead acid, NiCd, NiMH, NaS and Li ion. Some of the practical aspects of connecting the cells together into energy storage systems are discussed, as well as the management systems need to operate the battery systems safely and efficiently. The chapter finishes with a brief section on a selection of applications, with a focus on electric vehicles(EVs).
