Tubular plate lead acid batteries are extensively used in long life industrial applications at different duty cycles [float with occasional deep discharge or deep discharge). Normally.the life cycle tests take about a year to complete and the satisfactory completion of the set number of cycles is taken as the end test. An attempt has been made to regularly monitor the cadmium potential of both positive and negative plates during cycling and assess the progressive deterioration of the battery in the life cycle test for stationary and traction applications. Comparison of the life performance of different batteries with other data (capacity, storage efficiency, etc.) has been made to correlate and predict performance aspects. Modification of the life cycle test based on the above data is also aimed at to cut short the testing duration without sacrificing the real life evaluations. Results on batteries from different sources are presented here
