Q: What are the regulations or standards for battery testing or management?
A: There are 3 IEEE regulations for recommendation of battery maintenance including:
IEEE 1188:2005 Recommended practice of maintenance, testing and replacement of Valve-Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA) batteries for stationary applications
IEEE 450:2010 Recommended practice of maintenance, testing and replacement of Vented Lead-Acid batteries for stationary applications
IEEE 1106, IEEE Recommended Practice for Installation, Maintenance, Testing and Replacement of Vented Nickel-Cadmium Batteries for Stationary Applications
These international regulations are recommended practice regarding test and maintenance schedule for valve-regulated lead-acid (VLRA) batteries and Ni-cd batteries to optimize the battery life and performance.
