An Examination of High Rate Recharge on Absolyte IIP Batteries

Rob Schmitt

Power needs in the telecommunication industry are presently undergoing rapid change. The coexistence of digital and analog systems, future build-out strategies and ever increasing data and Internet traffic throughout a network makes power planning a difficult task at best. As a reaction to this uncertainty, many in the industry are oversizing power panels today so they will meet their anticipated needs tomorrow. In such cases, after an outage and when the power plant comes back on-line, large amounts of current are available to the battery. Combined with this reality is a desire by users to rapidly bring their batteries to a high state of charge after an outage or a test. Both of these situations lead the user to value a battery which can accept high recharge currents without sustaining damage.
