DEVELOP NICKEL--ZINC BATTERY SUITABLE FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLE PROPULSION. TASK A: DESIGN AND COST STUDY

A three-month design and cost study for the use of nickel--zinc batteries in electric vehicles is presented. Battery configuration is analyzed, and expected performance is set forth. Current development problems concern component materials and capacity decline on cycling, electrolyte maintenance, and thermal characteristics. The manufacturing process is outlined, and estimates are made for cost, materials requirements, capital needs, etc.
