Penn State researchers developing methods to prolong operating life of valve regulated lead-acid batteries; electric locomotive as example

Green Car Congress

A team of Penn State researchers is developing more cost-effective ways to prolong the life of valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries, such as those applied in Norfolk Southern Railway No. The operating environment, manufacturing variability, and use can cause different degradation mechanisms to dominate capacity loss inside valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries. The US Department of Energy funded this most recent study.
