Secondary lithium-ion cells for the propulsion of electric road vehicles - Part 1: Performance testing
|Publication Date:||1 January 2015|
This part of IEC 62660 specifies performance and life testing 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 test procedures to obtain the essential characteristics of lithium-ion cells for vehicle propulsion applications regarding capacity, power density, energy density, storage life and cycle life.
This standard provides the standard test procedures and conditions for testing basic performance characteristics of lithium-ion cells for vehicle propulsion applications, which are indispensable for securing a basic level of performance and obtaining essential data on cells for various designs of battery systems and battery packs.
NOTE 1 Based on the agreement between the manufacturer and the customer, specific test conditions may be selected in addition to the conditions specified in this standard. Selective test conditions are described in Annex A.
NOTE 2 The performance tests for the electrically connected lithium-ion cells may be performed with reference to this standard.
NOTE 3 The test specification for lithium-ion battery packs and systems is defined in ISO 12405-1 and ISO 12405-2 (under consideration).
