Overcoming Lead-Acid Genset Starting Challenges | SENS

Our genset power solutions director, Eric Solanyk, led a discussion on alternatives to lead-acid batteries for genset starting systems.

We discuss lead-acid genset batteries problems related to

  1. Reliability
  2. DC System Complexity
  3. Footprint
  4. Operations
  5. Logistics

and the current alternatives to lead-acid genset systems, such as nickel-cadmium and nickel-zinc.
