This Part of IEC 62660 provides the test data on the candidate alternative test methods for the internal short circuit test according to 22.214.171.124.2 of IEC 62660-3:2016. The internal short circuit test in this document is intended to simulate an internal short circuit of a cell caused by the contamination of conductive particle, and to verify the safety performance of the cell under such conditions.
This document is applicable to the secondary lithium-ion cells and cell blocks used for propulsion of electric vehicles (EV) including battery electric vehicles (BEV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV).
NOTE This document does not cover cylindrical cells.
