You may need to comply with this standard if you intend to use secondary batteries with stand-alone power systems. Stand-alone power systems are systems that are not connected to the power distribution system of an electricity supply authority. Stand-alone systems may be supplied with power from one or a combination of the following:
- photovoltaic array
- wind generator
- water generator
- diesel generator.
This standard specifies requirements for secondary batteries for use with power systems not connected to the distribution system of an electricity supply authority. It covers both performance and safety requirements and provides test methods.
