IECáTSá62257-8-1:2018(E) proposes simple, cheap, comparative tests in order to discriminate easily, in a panel of automotive flooded lead-acid batteries, the most acceptable model for PV individual electrification systems. It could be particularly useful for project implementers to test in laboratories of developing countries, the capability of locally made car or truck batteries to be used for their project. The tests provided in this document allow assessment of the batteries' performances according to the general specification of the project (see IECáTS 62257-2) and batteries associated with their battery management system (BMS) in a short time and with common technical means. They can be performed locally, as close as possible to the operating conditions of the real site. The document provides also regulations and installation conditions to be complied with in order to ensure the life and proper operation of the installations as well as the safety of people living in proximity to the installation. This new edition includes the following significant technical change with respect to the previous edition: increase of the applicable voltage levels and removal of the 100 kW power limit.
