Secondary cells and batteries for renewable energy storage — General requirements and methods of test — Part 1: Photovoltaic off-grid application
This part of the IEC 61427 series gives general information relating to the requirements for
the secondary batteries used in photovoltaic energy systems (PVES) and to the typical
methods of test used for the verification of battery performances. This part deals with cells
and batteries used in photovoltaic off-grid applications.
NOTE The part 2 of this series will cover cells and batteries used in “renewable energy storage in on-grid
This International Standard does not include specific information relating to battery sizing,
method of charge or PVES design.
This standard is applicable to all types of secondary batteries.
