Transient Behavior of Electrochemical Systems
Much of the discussion in this text has had to do with materials and phenomena under conditions that are at or near equilibrium. That is the best place to start in order to understand the driving forces and mechanisms involved, but actual behavior involves deviations from equilibrium.
The passage of current, either during discharge, or during recharge, results in the displacement of the system from thermodynamic equilibrium. In many cases the displacements are rather minor, and the results are easy to understand.
