SPACECRAFT INTEGRATION AND PROBLEM AREA STUDIES ON NICKEL HYDROGEN CELLS

Nickel hydrogen cell electrochemistry and performance previously described in the literature have led to predictions of long life lightweight cells that would offer considerable advantages over current nickel cadmium cells. The studies described in this paper consider the problems of assembling cells into batteries and mounting the cells/batteries on spacecraft, with proper consideration of important interface factors. Also presented are two problem areas observed during cell development and testing which provide additional insight into nickel hydrogen cell operation. /GMRL/
