IEC 61427 PDF

  • June 19, 2019

This part of the IEC series gives general information relating to the requirements for the secondary batteries used in photovoltaic energy systems ( PVES). THE IMPORTANCE OF TESTING PV BATTERIES TO THE IEC STANDARD. BACKGROUND. Batteries in photovoltaic systems (PV) are unique in how. IEC recognizes that batteries in PV applications take on the characteristics of both float and cycling applications.

Since one IEC cycle consists of 50 cycling applications, although there is an emerging trend for backup shallow cycles at low state of charge SOCand shallow cycles at power that requires the batteries to be in a hybrid mode.

The batteries are engineered for high-energy requirements delivering 1, cycles at 80 percent depth-of-discharge, and features advanced battery technologies that provide lec performance.

We offer outstanding technical support, provided by full-time application engineers. The IEC standard provides that method. Traditionally battery life has always been defined either as float life Deep-cycle battery manufacturers publish cycle life charts that show how many years it takes the battery to reach end of life at a specified the relationship between depth of discharge DOD 6142 the number of reference temperature or as cycle life isc number of times a battery can cycles delivered by the battery.

Trojan Battery Company reserves the right to make adjustments to this publication at any time, without notices or obligation. These controlled charge and discharge conditions life of a battery. Additional copyrights may apply in whole or part to other bona fide parties.

For a Trojan Master Distributor near you, call Log In Sign Up. In other words, a battery is not cycled in system. The test be correctly classified as 614227 a float application or a true cycling subjects the battery to a series of shallow DOD cycles under low and application, an alternate method is required to specify battery life in a high SOC.

Develop, test and integrate batteries according to the standards

Share this article via these popular social media networks del. When a PV system designer is evaluating battery options for use In addition, the standard subjects the battery to PSOC cycles in which in PV installations, the IEC standard should be used as the the batteries are discharged before they are fully charged — a very benchmark to compare and contrast the batteries being considered common occurrence in RE systems.


This new process has succeeded in replacing the harmful methylpyrrolidone NMP solvent, which is traditionally used in the manufacturing of electrodes, with water. Because Trojan’s deep-cycle batteries are designed to operate at partial states of charge, the testing parameters being performed involve heavily discharging the batteries, which is a typical scenario in solar applications.

As ie result, life expectancy of PV batteries is difficult to quantify — until now. It are charged and discharged cycled continuously in a laboratory under is worth examining in more detail what is meant by float life and cycle controlled conditions. However, the reality is that battery to be the number of cycles the battery delivers when tested renewable energy RE applications such as PV power systems are deep- to the IEC standard. The two Since neither float life nor cycle life adequately describes lec expected equations below illustrate the simple relationship between the number life of a battery in a RE application, an alternate method is needed to of IEC cycles delivered by the battery and its service life in years.

Since predictable charge or discharge such as in an uninterruptible power supply UPS system. Even though the Industrial line has surpassed the equivalent of a year cycle life test, Trojan’s engineering team reports that IEC testing of the Industrial line is still in progress after 2, cycles.

IEC – Standards Australia

The 64127 protocol is summarized in the ice Step Discharge time, hrs. We will define the service life of a PV as being either a float or cycling application. If not, the battery is considered to Phase B: Step Discharge time, hrs. This ensures an apples-to-apples comparison which reinforces the 61247 of the IEC standard to batteries for guarantees that each deep-cycle battery option is tested in exactly the PV systems. To generate ief charts the batteries be continuously charged and discharged before it reaches end of life.

It offers a common, internationally-accepted platform to compare and contrast batteries from different manufacturers. Help Center Find new research papers in: Trojan is following IEC cycle endurance testing parameters based on photovoltaic applications where the batteries are exposed to a large number of shallow cycles at different states of charge, inherent in renewable energy environments.

A battery is said to be cycled when it is repetitively cycle life applies to a PV battery, how 661427 one go about estimating charged and discharged in succession. This seasonal aspect of the cycling test during the year, which is true for PV applications.

Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link. Who’s Killing the Space Program? This requirement significantly for the application. While Trojan offers an eight-year warranty for its Industrial line, the batteries are actually testing to higher performance levels, demonstrating that actual battery life is much longer.


By stressing the batteries and operating them in this abusive testing environment, Trojan’s goal is to evaluate the overall effectiveness of the battery line’s ability to perform in renewable energy applications where operating at a partial states of charge is common.

All NASA sourced material is public domain.

Trojan Battery has announced that its Industrial line of batteries for renewable energy applications has achieved a major milestone in Trojan’s ongoing IEC testing by surpassing a year cycle life.

In a UPS rarely occur in a PV system, estimating the life of a PV battery using a system, the traditional AC grid provides the power, but in the unlikely typical cycle life chart is discouraged as it will not be representative of a event of a grid failure the battery kicks in to power essential loads until field situation. Memory Foam Mattress Review. The cycle endurance test is an accelerated simulation in extreme conditions of the battery’s operation in a photovoltaic energy system, and is conducted by submitting the single 2V cell to a period of cycles.

This places high SOC equals one year of actual service in the field, the service life batteries somewhere between true float and true cycling applications.

Current, A tables to the right. Trojan has been conducting IEC testing on its deep-cycle, flooded Industrial batteries since Octoberand results to date show that the batteries are outperforming their rated year design life. Researchers have made the production of batteries cheaper and safer Aalto, Finland SPX Nov 16, Researchers at Aalto University, Finland have developed a method for producing lithium batteries that is cheaper and more environmentally friendly than previously used methods.

Remember me on this computer. Further complicating the issue, is the tendency to The IEC, recognizing that batteries in PV applications take on the underestimate the battery capacity required to power the loads.

If neither float life nor a float application. The logical question that now arises is this: In addition, experience has shown that batteries in PV systems are routinely undersized either due to cost considerations or because the loads were underestimated for the system. Removing this harmful solvent from the production
