Abstract

A brief review of the origins of bipolar leakage currents, the means used for its measurement and calculation and the importance of minimizing the phenomenon, is followed by a novel means of computing leakage currents more accurately than hitherto possible, using a commercially available simulation program. This has the further advantage that the reali-V characteristics of an electrochemical cell can be used, there being no need to represent the cell itself as a zener diode which is a poor representation of reali-V cell characteristics.
