Recommended Practice for Sizing Large Lead Storage Batteries for Generating Stations and Substations
|Publication Date:||1 January 1978|
This Recommended Practice describes methods for defining the dc load in a generating station or a substation and for sizing a lead storage battery to supply that load. Some factors relating to cell selection are provided for consideration. Installation, maintenance, qualification, testing procedures, and consideration of battery types other than lead storage are beyond the scope of this Recommended Practice. Design of the dc system and sizing of the battery charger(s) are also beyond the scope of this Recommended Practice.
