Experimental Analysis of Batteries Under Continuous and Intermittent Operations
Battery lifetime extension is a primary design objective for portable systems. This paper investigates how non-ideal properties of a battery impacts its lifespan. More specifically the paper analyzes experimental discharge characteristics of Alkaline, Nickel Cadmium, Nickel Metal Hydride and Lithium Ion batteries for both continuous and intermittent operation. Our experimental results revealed that, the lifespan of the alkaline battery increased by intermittent operation by 28% compared with continuous operation. The lifespan of the rechargeable batteries (Nickel-Cadmium, Nickel-Metal Hydride and Lithium Ion) however, either were not affected or were reduced by intermittent operation.
