Polarization Curve Purpose

The purpose of the Polarization Curve experiment is to determine the effect of varying load levels on the voltage of the battery.

For validity, this test expects that the cell or battery under test should not change drastically during the experiment. For example, do not run a test where 50% of the battery capacity is drained during the test.

This is a half-cell, full-cell, stack, or dual-electrometer experiment. Dual-electrometer mode is only available with the Interface 5000.
