When choosing a battery, most people will ask: what is the efficiency of the battery?  Battery efficiency refers to the ratio of energy input to energy output. The output energy is always less than the input energy. Nevertheless, there are factors affecting battery performance. Measurement of a Battery’s Energy Efficiency The energy efficiency of a battery can be measured using two methods: voltage efficiency and Coulombic efficiency (CE). The voltage efficiency of a battery is the voltage difference between when it is charging and when discharging; this difference is produced by what is called over-potential.  Coulombic efficiency measures the transmission of electrons during charging and...

How Internal Resistance Affects Industrial Battery Performance

April 21, 2022 12:00 am Published by Leave your thoughts

The capacity of a battery doesn’t tell its full story because a perfect battery must deliver all the stored energy effectively. There is no perfect battery in the real world because no battery can give the entirety of its stored battery due to factors like internal resistance. However, batteries with lower internal resistance typically perform better than those with higher resistance. So What Is Internal Resistance in Batteries? In simple terms, internal resistance can be described as the "gatekeeper" of batteries. The internal resistance will hinder voltage delivery and determine the battery’s runtime. The internal resistance of a battery is... View Article
