Details of Lead Acid Battery
We use a lead acid battery in our project as it is readily available. Lead Acid battery consists of lead
as terminal and sulphuric acid as electrolyte.
 

Initial Charge

Cathode is oxidized

Initial charging establishes which plate will be the anode, and which the cathode. The process is driven by the forcible removal of electrons from the cathode and the forcible introduction of them
to the cathode. This splits the water into Hydrogen (which bubbles and is drawn off) and Oxygen,
which binds with the lead on the cathode, producing lead (II) oxide.

Anode Reaction: 2H+(aq) + 2e− → H2(g)

Cathode Reaction: Pb(s) + 2H2O(l) → PbO2(s) + 2H+(aq) + 2e−

Discharge

During discharge, both plates are again returned to equal composition, but this time both plates become lead sulfate. The process is driven by the conduction of electrons from the cathode back into the cell at the anode.

Anode Reaction: Pb(s) + HSO−
4(aq) → PbSO4(s) + H+(aq) + 2e−

Cathode Reaction: PbO2(s) + HSO−
4(aq) + 3H+(aq) + 2e− → PbSO4(s) + 2H2O(l)


Recharging
 

Subsequent charging places the battery back in its charged state, changing the lead sulfates
into lead and lead oxides. The process is driven by the forcible removal of electrons from the anode and the forcible introduction of them to the cathode.

Anode Reaction: PbSO4(s) + H+(aq) + 2e− → Pb(s) + HSO−
4(aq)
 

 

Cathode Reaction: PbSO4(s) + 2H2O(l) → PbO2(s) + HSO−
4(aq) + 3H+(aq) + 2e−

Lead Acid Battery Charger details and working
Although a lead acid battery can technically be charged just by providing a higher potential difference from the solar cell across it, it is important to monitor the level of charge across it and disconnect when the battery reaches full charge.

It is important to regulate charging to avoid overcharging.

A single event of overcharging can reduce battery capacity by 10-15%
