IEEE P1561 DRAFT
Draft Guide for Optimizing the Performance and Life of Lead-Acid Batteries in Remote Hybrid Power Systems
|Publication Date:||1 October 2018|
This guide provides rationale and guidance for operating lead-acid batteries in remote hybrid power systems, taking into consideration system loads and the capacities of the system's renewable-energy generator(s), dispatchable generator(s), and battery(s). It also provides guidance for selecting an appropriate lead-acid battery technology for various system operating strategies.
Using the information provided in this guide, the performance and life of the lead-acid battery can be optimized for the particular operational strategy selected for the remote hybrid power system. The information provided is intended for use by remote hybrid system designers, system evaluators, owners and operators.
