scope:

The test methodology in this document evaluates the fire characteristics of a battery energy storage system that undergoes thermal runaway.

The data generated will be used to determine the fire and explosion protection required for an installation of a battery energy storage system intended for installation, operation and maintenance in accordance with the International Fire Code (IFC), the Fire Code, NFPA 1, the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70, the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC), IEEE C2, other energy storage system codes, and the manufacturer's installation instructions.

Fire protection requirements not related to battery energy storage system equipment are covered by appropriate installation codes.

a) The purpose of the tests included in this Test Method;

b) Explanation of individual tests; and

c) Interpretation and application of the results.
