Document Number: J1718_200811
Revision Number:
Title
Measurement of Hydrogen Gas Emission from Battery-Powered Passenger Cars and Light Trucks During Battery Charging
Scope
This SAE Recommended Practice describes a procedure for measuring gaseous hydrogen emissions from the aqueous battery system of a battery-powered passenger car or light truck. The purpose of this procedure is to determine what concentrations of hydrogen gas an electric vehicle together with its charger will generate while being charged in a residential garage. Gaseous emissions are measured during a sequence of vehicle tests and laboratory tests that simulate normal and abnormal conditions during operational use. The results of this test may be used to determine whether or not forced air ventilation is required when a particular electric vehicle and its associated battery and charging system are used in a residential garage.
