In the past few years, advanced lead–acid batteries have gained significant application in hybrid electrical vehicles (HEVs) because of their excellent performances, especially in energy recovery and HRPSoC life. Nevertheless, further development of the batteries is necessary to solve many outstanding problems in HEV service.
The paper describes basic technical research and exploration of lead–acid battery operation, including structure selection, design optimization, formulation development and optimized performance (lower internal resistance, faster charge-acceptance and more stable discharge voltage in life cycle tests of HEVs), with funding support from the Camel Group, China.
