Excerpt from Storage Battery Manual: Including Principles of Storage Battery Construction and Design, With the Application of Storage Batteries to the Naval Service
Owing to the very rapidly increasing application of storage battery engi neering to our naval service, and beli... eving that there exists a growing need for a modern text-book on this subject, effort has therefore been put forth in the production of this volume with the hope that it will prove of assistance in the instruction of our personnel in this very important and interesting branch of electrical engineering. Special effort has also been put forth in an attempt to present the subject matter of the text in as simple and as practical a manner as possible and with the use of only those involved formulw and mathematical expressions as have been deemed absolutely essential in developing and supporting the text. Great pains have also been taken in composing and selecting the various drawings and photographs used for clearly illustrating the text.
My very sincere thanks are due and are extended to many of the battery engineers of the following companies for the numerous valuable and helpful hints received from them in relation to this subject and which have been crystallized into the production of the text of this volume, and also for the use of many of the illustrations used in connection with the text: The Electric Storage Battery The Gould Storage Battery The General Lead Batteries The Philadelphia Storage Battery The U. S. Light and Heat Corporation, The Willard Storage Battery The Goodrich Rubber The Brown Instrument The Werner and P¿eiderer and The Cutter Electrical and Mfg. Co.
