Design and test requirements for stationary applications
Safe and secure energy storage systems in industry and private households should be self-evident. Sophisticated standards are now available that take into account the safe design requirements for risk management from electrochemical hazards. An overview of the relevant standards of CENELEC, IEC and other organizations with the key design requirements and their application for Li-Ion storage systems is discussed as a guide for engineers and designers to design safely.
