Abstract
Modern civilization uses huge amount of electrical power. Most of this power is generated by using fossil fuel which is non-renewable and we can not produce it according to our desire .If this condition continue human civility will face great difficulties. In this case energy solution for the future will increasingly depend upon the uses of renewable energy. Keeping this concept in mind, an Innovative work has been designed and developed at the Physics Department of Jagannath University, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Electrochemistry and electrical Performances have been studied. The concentration of the reactant and product ions are [Cu2+] and [Zn2+]respectively measured by the Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS). The variation of [Cu2+ ] and [Zn2+] with the variation of time, temperature of the electrolyte, concentration of the juice ,distance between two plates, absorption and adsorption of the [Cu2+ ] and [Zn2+] by the electrodes, thickness of the electrodes have been studied. Voltage regulation, Internal resistance, Energy efficiency, Current efficiency ,Voltage efficiency, Charging efficiency, Discharging efficiency , Open circuit Voltage, Short circuit Current of the BPL cell have been studied. It has been also studied the Voltage regulation, Internal resistance, Energy efficiency, Current efficiency ,Voltage efficiency, Charging efficiency, Discharging efficiency , Open circuit Voltage, Short circuit Current of the BPL cell with the variation of time. The name and presentation of the BPL cell has been developed . It has been introduced the name of the BPL cell as quasi Galvanic/Voltaic cell. Most of the results have been tabulated and graphically discussed.
