IEEE 1661TM-2007, Guide for Test and Evaluation of Lead-Acid Batteries Used in Photovoltaic (PV) Hybrid Power Systems
This guide contains a field test procedure for lead-acid batteries used in photovoltaic (PV) hybrid power systems. Battery charging parameters are discussed with respect to PV hybrid power systems. The field test procedure is intended to verify the battery's operating setpoints and battery performance. Discussions on how to interpret test results are also included. This guide is applicable to all PV hybrid power systems where PV and an engine generator are the only charging sources. This guide does not include stand-alone PV only systems.
This document provides a field test and evaluation procedure for lead-acid batteries used in PV hybrid power systems. It is intended to help system owners, designers, and funding organizations select, manage, and verify lead-acid battery performance in PV hybrid power systems.
