1679.2 - Guide for the Characterization and Evaluation of Sodium-Beta Batteries in Stationary Applications

Sodium-beta batteries have been used in various, non-stationary applications for many years. They are now beginning to be used in stationary applications, and as such there is a need to provide appropriate information on safety and operating conditions related to these applications. Used with IEEE Std 1679-2010, this guide describes a format for the characterization of sodium-beta battery technologies in terms of performance, service life and safety attributes. This format provides a framework for developers and manufacturers to describe their products. The resulting information assists users, integrators and servicing organizations in evaluating the possible use of these batteries in stationary applications and provides objective criteria for comparative evaluation.
