Abstract

The present invention provides a technique that provides a design of electrical interconnect with controlled resistance to inject heat into a sodium battery. Heat is injected when current passes through the sodium battery. The technique allows injecting heat into the sodium battery during normal operation to supplement electric resistance heater. The interconnect system introduces I squared R heat or electrical resistance into the battery.
