The Lead-Acid Batteries Training System introduces students to the operation of lead-acid batteries and covers voltage regulation, internal resistance, capacity, depth of discharge, and cycle life of lead-acid batteries. Hands-on experiments cover both the discharge characteristics and the most popular charging methods of lead-acid batteries.
The Lead-Acid Batteries Training System equipment includes the Lead-Acid Batteries, Model 8801, and the Four-Quadrant Dynamometer/Power Supply, Model 8960-2. The Four-Quadrant Dynamometer / Power Supply is a multifunctional module that is used in the Lead-Acid Batteries course to charge and discharge the batteries. Its operation is controlled by the LVDAC-EMS software, which also provides the instrumentation required to measure, collect, and record the experimental data.
The training system teaches the principles of lead-acid battery operation during both charge and discharge.
The course curriculum of the Electric Power Technology Training Program is highly flexible and allows a multitude of different customized training solutions.
The courseware includes student manuals and instructor guides with all the theory required to perform the hands-on experiments.
All workstations, modules, and components are very sturdy to ensure a prolonged service life in a demanding environment such as a training laboratory.
The modular design approach of the training equipment allows a large variety of courses to be performed using a small number of modules, without unnecessary duplication of equipment.
All electrical components can be interconnected without electric shock hazard since all live parts of the connection leads are concealed and insulated.
All electrical symbols representing the components used in a laboratory exercise are clearly silk-screened on the front panel of the modules.
The training system includes a highly versatile USB peripheral:
Four-Quadrant Dynamometer/Power Supply, Model 8960-2. This module is used as a dc power source and a battery charger/discharger with a large variety of configurable parameters. It can also be used as an overnight battery float charger.
Firmware upgrades for the Four-Quadrant Dynamometer/Power Supply are available for download free of charge on the Festo Didactic website.
