Recommended Practice for Performance Rating of Lead Acid and Nickel Metal Hydride Electric Vehicle Battery Modules
This SAE Recommended Practice provides for common test and verification methods to determine lead acid and nickel metal hydride electric vehicle battery module performance. The document creates the necessary performance tests to determine (a) what the basic performance of EV battery modules is, and (b) if battery modules meet minimum performance specification established by vehicle manufacturers or other purchasers. Specific values for these minimum performance specifications are not a part of this document.
With the changes in battery technology, the latest version of SAE J1798 divides along chemistry lines. The slash /1 document (SAE J1798/1) only covers lead acid and nickel metal hydride chemistries. This document supersedes SAE J1798, which has been stabilized.
