The most outcomes of the research were (The objective of this work is to show how the change of phase transition can be studied from the pattern of DC conductivity versus 1000/T. Furthermore, an obvious increase of crystalline phase as a consequence of an increase of various amounts of PEO to CS-based electrolyte has also predicted from the impedance plots)
