BMS – Functional Safety Related to Lithium Ion Energy Storage Systems
Significance of a correct and valid risk assessment evaluation based to valid standards, which were already mentioned in the VDE application guide VDE-AR-E 2510-50 for stationary battery energy storage systems with lithium batteries. The wording functional safety shall not be a question of interpretation. An analysis for functional safety shall be determined on the basis of the risk reduction (SIL). Is it possible to provide this analysis in form of a self-declaration or internal standard?
Martin Hessenmüller – Expert for Safety Energy Storage System, studied electrical engineering (B.Sc) at the University of Applied Sciences Cologne. He has joined TÜV Rheinland in 2011 and started as technical expert for testing power conversion equipment according to several national and international standards. Martin expended his technical competence for electrical components from further research projects and participation in committee working groups. His actual main focus is on the evaluation.
