Batteries: Analysis and Regeneration

Batteries: Analysis and Regeneration

TARGET GROUP

Engineers who perform repairs on electric machines.
Engineers who wish to gain an insight in the functioning of lead-acid traction batteries, checking batteries and the operation principle of the battery regenerator.

PRIOR KNOWLEDGE

Prior knowledge about batteries is required. This training course can be taken as a refresher and follow-up course to the training – Batteries and chargers.

GOAL

  • To be able to check traction batteries in a correct way and make a correct diagnosis.
  • To recognise a sulphated battery.
  • To understand the functioning of the battery regenerator and use it efficiently.
