Recommended Practice for Packaging of Electric Vehicle Battery Modules
|Publication Date:||1 January 1997|
1. Scope--This SAE Recommended Practice provides for common battery designs through the description of dimensions, termination, retention, venting system, and other features required in an electric vehicle application. The document does not provide for performance standards. Performance will be addressed by SAE J1798. This document does provide for guidelines in proper packaging of battery modules to meet performance criteria detailed in J1766.
1.1 Purpose--This document provides the guidelines for designing a battery module to effectively package into manufacturer's electric vehicles. It will lay the foundation for electric vehicle battery modules and serve as an industry guideline.
1.2 Field of Application--Electri
1.3 Product Classification--Elec
1.4 Form--A modular unit consisting of electrochemical cell(s) configured to met the guidelines of this document to provide a component which can be assembled into a battery pack system for electric vehicle applications.
