The purpose of this R&D program is to explore the high-power capabilities of Na/S flat plate cells by testing standard cylindrical cells with active bases (only) at high rates under steady loads, and to utilize this data to support a proof of concept (POC) flat plate cell design. Typically, the test cells were discharged continuously to a specified depth of discharge (DOD) at a constant rate between 0.1 to 1.4 A/cm/sup 2/ in successive steps of 0.1 A/cm/sup 2/. The methods of determining the… Expand
