Chapter 5 - Example 5.9 - Kirchoff's Voltage Law

Why does the terminal voltage of the battery decrease with more load current? The lower the internal resistance of a generator, the better it is in terms of being able to produce full output voltage when supplying current for a load. As can be seen, as the load current increases the terminal voltage decreases. Even though the battery resistance is small, as the current increases the voltage drop across it increases and  so due to this loss across the resistance, the terminal voltage decreases.
