IEEE 1635-2012

IEEE/ASHRAE Guide for the Ventilation and Thermal Management of Batteries for Stationary Applications

Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers / 23-Oct-2012 / 108 pages

New IEEE Standard – Active.
Vented lead-acid (VLA), valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA), and nickel-cadmium (NiCd) stationary battery installations are discussed in this guide, written to serve as a bridge between the electrical designer and the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) designer. Ventilation of stationary battery installations is critical to maximize battery life while minimizing the hazards associated with hydrogen production. This guide describes battery operating modes and the hazards associated with each. It provides the HVAC designer with the information to provide a cost effective ventilation solution.
