The nickel-hydrogen secondary battery system offers the advantages of long cycle life, insensitivity to overcharge, and reversal and high energy density. Utilizing single cylindrical self-contained cells as a building block, the system constraints are reviewed. Consideration is given to heat generation and transfer, charge-overcharge control, multi-cell grouping and individual cell by-pass. Utilizing existing cells it is estimated that a 28 volt 50 Ahr battery run at 80% depth will deliver 18 Whr/lb and near term improvements will raise this to 20 Whr/lb. /GMRL/
