IEEE 1561TM-2007 Guide for Optimizing the Performance and Life of Lead-Acid Batteries in Remote Hybrid Power Systems.
This guide provides the rationale and guidance for operating lead-acid batteries in remote hybrid systems considering the system's load, and the capacities of its renewable-energy generator(s), dispatchable generator(s), and battery(s). It also provides guidance for selecting an appropriate lead-acid battery technology for various system operating strategies.
Using the information provided in this guide, the performance and life of the lead-acid battery can be optimized for the particular operational strategy selected for the remote hybrid system. The information provided is intended for use by remote hybrid system designers, system evaluators, owners and operators.
