Electric and Hybrid Electric Vehicle Rechargeable Energy Storage System (RESS) Safety and Abuse Testing
Published November 6, 2009 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Recommended Practice is intended as a guide toward standard practice and is subject to change to keep pace with experience and technical advances. It describes a body of tests which may be used as needed for abuse testing of electric or hybrid electric vehicle Rechargeable Energy Storage Systems (RESS) to determine the response of such electrical energy storage and control systems to conditions or events which are beyond their normal operating range.
Abuse test procedures in this document are intended to cover a broad range of vehicle applications as well as a broad range of electrical energy storage devices, including individual RESS cells (batteries or capacitors), modules and packs. This document applies to vehicles with RESS voltages above 60 volts. This document does not apply to RESS that uses mechanical devices store energy (e.g., electro-mechanical flywheels).
Abuse testing is performed to characterize the response of a Rechargeable Energy Storage System (RESS) to off-normal conditions or environments. The primary purpose of abuse testing is to gather response information to external/internal inputs that are designed to simulate actual use and abuse conditions. This response information is used to expose the hazards, if any, associated with a given RESS under a given set of use and abuse conditions and to help quantify the hazard mitigation efforts that should be taken for a particular RESS design. The revisions are intended to expand the scope of SAE J2464 to include other types of electric energy storage devices and vehicular applications, make the test results more quantitative as well as incorporate improvements in test procedures and data analysis.
