What is a Chemical BatteryA Chemical Battery is simply a device that allows energy to be stored in a chemical form and to be released when needed . Primary batteries only store energy and cannot be recharged. Most PV useful batteries also require that the energy can be “re-charged” by forcing the discharge reaction to be reversed and thus use rechargeable “secondary” batteries.ECE 4833 - Dr. Alan DoolittleGeorgia Tech
What is a Chemical BatteryA Chemical Battery consists of at least three regions:•Cathode: Negative potential lead•Anode: Positive potential lead•Electrolyte: A “weak barrier” that allows ions to be transferred from anode to cathode. Some batteries may have more than one electrolyte and/or hllblid liidthe electrolyte may be solid, liquid or even gaseous or a mix of any phase.•A battery requires mass transport to occur – which kilii ihlltakes time limiting the overall out put.ECE 4833 - Dr. Alan DoolittleGeorgia Tech
