46 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning Charging Current Decreases as Battery Charges Figure 5-49 Charging current decreases as battery is recharged.

47 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning Summary Batteries store and transform energy. Batteries are some of the most hazardous components found on trucks. Lead acid batteries contain two different types of lead along with an electrolyte made of sulfuric acid and water. The two types of lead are formed into plates. A group of plates are connected in parallel to form a cell. The cells are connected in series. A 12V battery has six cells connected in series. Each cells produces a voltage of about 2.1V.

48 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning Summary (continued) Batteries have internal resistance. The internal resistance varies depending on several factors, including temperature and battery state of charge. Battery internal resistance causes the battery terminal voltage to decrease as the current supplied by the battery increases. No-load or open circuit voltage refers to the terminal voltage of a battery that is not supplying any current. This no-load voltage can be used to indicate the battery state of charge.

49 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning Summary (continued) There are several battery ratings. CCA indicate how much current a fully charged battery can supply continuously for 30 seconds and still maintain a terminal voltage of 7.2V. Reserve capacity is another rating and indicates how long (in minutes) a battery can supply a 25A load and still maintain a terminal voltage of 10.5V.

50 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning Summary (continued) Batteries are charged by causing a current to flow through the battery. A combination of time and current flow is necessary to recharge a battery. Specific gravity refers to the weight of electrolyte compared to and equal volume of water. The measurement of specific gravity using a hydrometer can be used to determine a battery state of charge in conventional batteries.

51 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning Summary (continued) Surface charge refers to gas bubbles on the plates that can make a battery appear to be at a higher state of charge than it actually is. Surface charge must be removed before testing a battery. A carbon pile tester is used to load test a battery.
