Recommended Practice for Electric and Hybrid Electric Vehicle Battery Systems Crash Integrity Testing
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Published April 20, 2005 by SAE International in United States
Electric, Fuel Cell and Hybrid vehicles may contain many types of high voltage systems. Adequate barriers between occupants and the high voltage systems are necessary to provide protection from potentially harmful electric current and materials within the high voltage system that can cause injury to occupants of the vehicle during a crash. This SAE Recommended Practice is applicable to all Electric, Fuel Cell and Hybrid vehicle designs that are comprised of at least one voltage bus with a nominal voltage greater than or equal to 60 Volts DC or 30 VAC. This Recommended Practice addresses electrical isolation integrity, electrolyte spillage, and retention of the battery system.
Previous revisions of this document did not include a time limit in which the vehicle had to comply to the test procedure. The 5 second time frame was chosen as a reasonable system response time that also protects vehicle occupants and bystanders. UL 2202 Section 6.2, Stored Energy, references this time as the time to measure voltage across capacitors after energy has been removed.

The Fuel Cell Standards Committee is responsible for establishing standards for hydrogen and fuel cell vehicles. Standards will cover the safety aspects of hydrogen, fuel cell, and electrical systems in the vehicle, test procedures to establish the performance of the vehicle, system/components, and interface requirements.

* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
