The rate, usually expressed in amperes or time, at which electrical current is taken from the battery.
The term to express the magnitude of discharge current. When assuming discharge current and time to discharge cut-off voltage t hours, this discgarge is called t-hour rate(tHR) discharge, and the current is called t-hour rate diacharge current. When time t is minutes instead of hours, tMR is used
Batteries discharged to meet any time rate between 3 and 8 hours are considered as having been normally discharged.
The charge removed from a cell or battery. Battery manufacturers refer to the rate of discharge not by amps but by the time it would take to completely discharge the battery at a particular fixed current. For example a battery which has a rated capacity of 100 Ah is subjected to a current withdrawal of 5 amps then it would take 20 hours to completely discharge the battery. In this case we say that the battery is discharging at the 20-hour rate. Normally written as C20.
The rate of current flow from a cell or battery.
Normally expressed as a fraction of C: it is the rate at which current is taken from a cell or battery.
The rate that energy is removed from a battery, usually expressed in AmpHours.
The current at which a battery is discharged.
(Of A Pacemaker) - The rate at which electrical impulses are generated by a pacemaker.
The discharge rate is the rate at which current is removed from a battery. When a battery is discharged at a current level "i", for a period until the end discharge voltage is '"h", the discharge is referred to as the h-hour rate discharge, while "i" is known as the h-hour rate discharge current. For practical use, nominal capacity is used as standard.
How fast current is withdrawn from a battery. It is usually expressed in hours . For instance, a C/5 discharge rate is a current that would discharge the battery in 5 hours. Batteries have less capacity at higher discharge rates, so their storage capacity is rated at 5 hr., 20 hr, and 100 hr discharge rates. (See Puekert's Number)
The rate at which the battery expends its power.
The rate at which water is discharged from sprinklers, emitters, pumps, pipes etc, expressed in L/s or L/hr or cubic meters per hour (= flow)
The rate of current draw expressed in amperes, to indicate the amount of energy being delivered by the battery.
