IEEE 1013 Recommended Practice for Sizing Lead-Acid Batteries
for Stand-Alone Photovoltaic Systems

IEEE 1013 is published and available from IEEE. To purchase this standard or for information about pricing and availability, go to the IEEE store and search for this standard by number. For questions about this standard, contact Peter McNutt. For questions about SCC21 standards development and new projects, contact SCC21 Secretary Tom Basso.


Standard Title:
IEEE 1013TM-2007, IEEE Recommended Practice for Sizing Lead-Acid Batteries for Stand-Alone Photovoltaic (PV) Systems.

Scope:
This recommended practice describes a method for sizing both vented and valve-regulated lead-acid batteries in stand-alone PV systems. Installation, maintenance, safety, testing procedures, and consideration of battery types other than lead-acid are beyond the scope of this recommended practice. Sizing batteries for hybrid and grid-connected PV systems is beyond the scope of this recommended practice. Recommended practices for the remainder of the electrical systems associated with standalone PV installations are also beyond the scope of this recommended practice. Sizing examples are given for various representative system applications. Iterative techniques to optimize battery costs, which include consideration of the interrelationship between battery size, PV array size, and weather, are beyond the scope of this recommended practice.

Purpose:
This recommended practice is meant to assist system designers in sizing lead-acid batteries for residential, commercial, and industrial stand-alone PV systems
