Lithium Ion Battery Module Performance Rating
This SAE Recommended Practice defines standard performance test procedures for LIBM’s. Specific values for minimum performance are not part of this specification, these tests are for performance comparison to a common testing platform. This document is subject to change to keep pace with technological advances.
LIBM safety and abuse testing is comprehended in J2929 and J2464. LIBM life cycle testing is comprehended in J2288. LIBM form factor is irrelevant to the purpose of this document. LIBM shock and vibration testing is included in J2380.
Rationale: The document is companion document to J1798 and is intended to fulfill the electrical performance testing procedures and evaluation methods needed for the energy storage market utilizing Lithium Ion Battery Modules (or grouped Lithium Ion cells requiring individual cell monitoring packaged with a Battery Management System or equivalent circuitry). A Lithium Ion Battery Module (hereinafter LIBM) requires a “system” approach which includes circuitry for purposes of measurement and control.
