Description

Based on the successful first edition, this book gives a general theoretical introduction to electrochemical power cells (excluding fuel cells) followed by a comprehensive treatment of the principle battery types - covering chemistry, fabrication characteristics and applications. There have been many changes in the field over the last decade and many new systems have been commercialised. Since the recent advent of battery powered consumer products (mobile phones, camcorders, lap-tops etc.) advanced power sources have become far more important. This text provides an up-to-date account of batteries which is accessible to anyone with a basic knowledge of chemistry and physics.

Readership

Intermediate/senior undergraduates and postgraduates in chemistry, physics and engineering (especially electronic). Professional electronic engineers, electrochemists and physicists requiring a basic understanding of battery types.

Table of Contents

Introduction Theoretical background Primary aqueous cells Primary lithium cells Secondary lead-acid cells Secondary alkaline cells Rechargeable lithium batteries High temperature cells Miscellaneous cells.

Reviews

As an introductory readable text for the non-specialist electrical engineer anxious to keep abreast of what chemists and physicists are developing in the laboratory it is highly recommended.,Electronics and Power - Institution of Electrical Engineers, This is a well written and reasonably comprehensive account of the electrochemistry, construction and performance of conventional and modern batteries which is nicely balanced between theory and practice.,Education in Chemistry,... there are no omissions... I can recommend the book to readers who wish to bring themselves quickly up to speed with the topic.,The Advanced Lead-Acid Battery Consortium,... a really excellent text - I could hardly put it down. It should be read by all electrical and electronics engineers.,Prof E Spooner, Durham University, UK,
