A University of Texas at Arlington engineering researcher is working to determine how oversized a battery has to be while operating safely and efficiently during its lifetime of use by the US Navy. Wetz’s Pulsed Power and Energy Laboratory has received important Office of Naval Research funding during the last couple of years, including: A $185,000 ONR grant to design and evaluate controls for a 1000 volts-direct-current lead-acid battery for use in shipboard applications.
