1491-2012 – IEEE Guide for Selection and Use of Battery Monitoring Equipment in Stationary Applications
Operational parameters that may be observed by battery monitoring equipment used in stationary applications and the relative value of such observations are discussed in this guide. Although a list of commercially available systems is not given, a means for establishing specifications for the desired parameters to be monitored is provided.
1188-2005 – IEEE Recommended Practice for Maintenance, Testing, and Replacement of Valve-Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA) Batteries for Stationary Applications
This recommended practice is limited to maintenance, test schedules, and testing procedures that can be used to optimize the life and performance of valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries for stationary applications. It also provides guidance to determine when batteries should be replaced.
New guidance to users dealing with premature capacity failures with VRLA batteries and updated definitions are addressed in 2014’s amendment.
450-2010 – IEEE Recommended Practice for Maintenance, Testing, and Replacement of Vented Lead-Acid Batteries for Stationary Applications
Maintenance, test schedules, and testing procedures that can be used to optimize the life and performance of permanently installed, vented lead-acid storage batteries used for standby service are provided. This recommended practice also provides guidance to determine when batteries should be replaced. This recommended practice is applicable to standby service stationary applications where a charger maintains the battery fully charged and supplies the dc loads.
