Stranded Energy - Reporting and Extraction From Vehicle Electrochemical Storage Systems
The intent of this document is to consider the type of information reported by the battery management system (BMS) and recommended discharge level dependent on a collision or vehicle fire. The document does not describe how the energy should be extracted.
Rationale: There is a dire need for first responders to understand the level of energy in a hybrid electric or electric vehicle energy storage system in the event of an emergency. Although this information is part of the fuel gauging for the energy storage system the final recommended practice will not be focused on the particular aspect of stranded energy.
