Martha, SK and Hariprakash, B and Gaffoor, SA and Ambalavanan, S and Shukla, AK (2005) Assembly and performance of hybrid-VRLA cells and batteries. In: Journal of Power Sources, 144 (2). pp. 560-567.
Several commercial-grade hybrid-VRLA and AGM-VRLA cells and batteries have been assembled and tested under varying charge-discharge rates in a temperature range between 50 and -40 degrees C. Impedance studies on hybrid-VRLA and AGM-VRLA cells have been conducted to reflect on their resistive and capacitive values. A linear relationship is found to exist between logarithmic state-of-charge values and ohmic impedance of batteries. In general, hybrid-VRLA cells and batteries perform better than their AGM-VRLA counterpart. A field-performance study conducted on AGM-VRLA and hybrid-VRLA batteries for solar-lighting application also suggests the latter to be superior.
