Abstract
Manufacturers have been unable to supply nickel/cadmium aircraft batteries which could pass the float charge test specified in the Canadian Forces Specification CF-B-70. Battery behaviour under the conditions of the test has therefore been investigated. Recommendations are made for battery improvement. Suggestions for modification of the float charge test are also made. Suggestions for improved screening of defective cells and for limiting the overcharge on board the aircraft are made.
