Battery Conductance Testing

Battery conductance is a rapid and repeatable electrical measurement that determines the ability of a battery to transmit current readily through its internal electro-chemical structure. It provides a direct relationship to battery power parameters.

Battery conductance is measured by evaluating the voltage response to a small select frequency AC current signal briefly impressed on the battery. The resultant conductance measurement provides pertinent battery information without the need of bringing the battery to full discharge. As a battery discharges, its conductance and capacity are reduced with a simultaneous drop in power in a predictable manner due to the depletion of conductive active materials. Therefore, conductance is an indication of the batteries state-of-health as well as a function of the charge state of a battery.
