ifying the cell design to accommodate expansion. In this report advanced designs for IPV nickel-hydrogen cells are described which should have an improved cycle life at deep depths-of-discharge. CONTEMPORARY DESIGNS FOR IPV NICKEL-HYDROGEN CELLS The two main designs of IPV nickel - hydrogen cells in current use, are the Air Force/Hughes and Cited by: 7. The dependent pressure vessel (DPV) nickel/hydrogen (NiH 2) design is being developed by Eagle-Picher Industries, Inc. (EPI) as an advanced battery for military and commercial aerospace and terrestrial DPV cell design offers high specific energy and energy density as well as reduced cost, while retaining the established individual pressure vessel (IPV) technology, flight Author: Dwight B.

(Equi Diagram, Crys Structure; Experimental) Google ScholarCited by: A in., 50 ampere hour nickel—hydrogen cell has been on a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) test regime at 10 °C and 60% depth of discharge. At cycle number the Automatic Control and Data Acquisition System (ACDAS) terminated the test when the end of discharge voltage dropped below the V by: 3. The first NASA application for NiH2 batteries was the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Hubble Space Telescope Satellite launched in The handbook was prepared as a reference book to aid in the application of this technology. That is, to aid in the cell and battery design, . A nickel–hydrogen battery (NiH 2 or Ni–H 2) is a rechargeable electrochemical power source based on nickel and hydrogen. It differs from a nickel–metal hydride (NiMH) battery by the use of hydrogen in gaseous form, stored in a pressurized cell at up to psi ( bar) density: ~60 W·h/L.

This paper on nickel hydrogen batteries is an overview of the various nickel hydrogen battery design options, technical accomplishments, validation test results and trends. There is more than one nickel hydrogen battery design, each having its advantage for specific applications. Modeling of a Nickel-Hydrogen Cell The nickel electrode has been actively researched for a long time. The electrochemical behavior of the nickel active material is usually described by the one-electron-transfer redox reaction be-tween nickel hydroxide and nickel oxyhydroxide. However, experi-. COMMON -PRESSURE-VESSEL NICKEL-HYDROGEN BATTERY DEVELOPMENT Burton M. Otzinger Rockwell Internatinal Space Systems Division Seal Beach, CA and James R. Wheeler Eagle-Picher Industries Joplin, MO Abstract The dual-cell, common-pressure­ vessel, nickel-hydrogen configuration has recently emerged as an option for small satellite nickel-hydrogen. A fuel cell is an electrochemical cell that converts the chemical energy of a fuel (often hydrogen) and an oxidizing agent (often oxygen) into electricity through a pair of redox reactions. Fuel cells are different from most batteries in requiring a continuous source of fuel and oxygen (usually from air) to sustain the chemical reaction, whereas in a battery the chemical energy usually comes.
