Original Abstract

This article is focused on understanding of the current distribution on lead acid battery grid. To develop this understanding two primary designs of the grid were modeled and then tested. The first design uses the standard lead grid casting part. The second modified design derives benefit from the current collector position which is located in the middle. FEM calculation gave us the comparison between the current densities of both solutions. After the results were evaluated the real experiments started. It can be seen that the FEM could influence an effect of the real tests.
