THE WORLD'S LEADING GUIDE TO BATTERY TECHNOLOGYComprehensive, coherent, and completely up-to-date,Handbook of Batteries, Third Editionbrings you the expertise of 80 of the world's top experts -- a wealth of hands-on knowledge compiled and edited by two pioneering researchers who are top-ranked consultants to the battery industry.,Making vital data and equations instantly accessible for a wide range of applications, the Handbook has more authoritative information than any other source on the characteristics, properties, and performance of every major battery type.This edition's four new chapters give you new, fully-detailed information on Lithium Ion and Propulsion and Industrial Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries, and portable fuel cells -- including small fuel cells (less than 1000 Watts) which are potentially competitive with battery sytems.Thoroughly updating all developments in the field since 1995, the Third Edition of this ultimate state-of-the-art guide:*Brings you up to speed on today's cutting edge battery technologies, materials and methods *Helps you predict battery performance under all operating conditions *Simplifies the selection of the most suitable batteries for a wide range of applications
DAVID LINDEN has been active in battery research, development, and engineering for more than 50 years. He was Director of the Power Sources Division of the U.S. Army Electronics R&D Command. Many of the batteries and power sources currently in use, including lithium batteries and fuel cells, resulted from R&D programs at that Division. Mr. Linden is now a consultant on the development and application of new primary and rechargeable batteries. He is a member of national and interntional groups establishing standards for these new technologies.
THOMAS B. REDDY, Ph.D.was a leader in the development of lithium primary batteries and served as a Vice President of Power Conversion, Inc. (later Hawker Eternacell, Inc.) and Yardney Technical Products, Inc. He continues to act as a consultant to the battery industry. Dr. Reddy is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Bio-Engineering Division of the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. He is also a Distinguished Visiting Scientist in the School of Engineering of Rutgers University.
