From 1992 till 1994 ECN has performed research on the application ofbatteries in electric vehicles. The work concentrated on lithium batteries with metallic lithium and LiCoO2 as active components. The results of literature studies and experimental work are summarized. The advantages and disadvantages of electric vehicles compared to cars with internal combustion engines are discussed in chapter 2. Also characteristics of batteries for electric vehicles and expected future developments are given. Chapter 3 is an overview of literature on the main components of lithium batteries. The experimental methods used are the subject of chapter 4. Results are summarized in chapter 5. Most attention has been given to capacity fading with cycling. Possible future specifications of a bipolar lithium battery are derived from a theoretical model based on experimental results. 18 figs., 4 tabs., 58 refs.
