A new lead acid cell concept for traction applications

Abstract

This paper describes methods for the improvement of the utilization of the positive active material in tubular electrodes. First a lead dioxide matrix with a very high porosity, achieved by means of a granulated grey oxide powder, is described and secondly a special electrode geometry, promoting improved access of electrolyte into the active material and an increased convection of the electrolyte around each separate tube.
