Abstract : A circuit to control charge current entering nickel -cadmium cells with auxiliary electrodes ('three-terminal' cells) using a shunt method of control was developed for use in satellite power systems requiring minimum weight and space with optimum control and temperature compensation. Reduction in charge current is caused when the set limits of either the total battery terminal voltage, or the potential of any individual cell at this auxiliary electrode, is exceeded. (Author)
