Secondary lithium-ion cells for the propulsion of electric road vehicles - Part 2: Reliability and abuse testing
|Publication Date:||1 January 2015|
This part of IEC 62660 specifies test procedures to observe the reliability and abuse behaviour of secondary lithium-ion cells used for propulsion of electric vehicles including battery electric vehicles (BEV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV).
The objective of this standard is to specify the standard test procedures and conditions for basic characteristics of lithium-ion cells for use in propulsion of battery and hybrid electric vehicles. The tests are indispensable for obtaining essential data on reliability and abuse behaviour of lithium-ion cells for use in various designs of battery systems and battery packs.
This standard provides standard classification of description of test results to be used for the design of battery systems or battery packs.
NOTE 1 The reliability and abuse tests for the electrically connected lithium-ion cells may be performed with reference to this standard.
NOTE 2 The test specification for lithium-ion battery packs and systems is defined in ISO 12405-1 and ISO 12405-2 (under consideration).
