1679.2 - IEEE Draft Guide for the Characterization and Evaluation of Sodium-Based Batteries in Stationary Applications

This document provides guidance for evaluation of the characteristics and performance of sodium-beta 2 batteries by a potential user for stationary applications. Information regarding technology description, 3 safety, aging and failure modes, evaluation techniques, and regulatory issues is included in this guide. This 4 document is to be used in conjunction with IEEE Std 1679, IEEE Recommended Practice for the 5 Characterization and Evaluation of Emerging Energy Storage Technologies in Stationary Applications. 6 7 Sodium-beta batteries include those secondary (rechargeable) electro-chemistries with sodium as the active 8 species exchanged between the electrodes during charging and discharging, and operating above the 9 melting point of sodium. These batteries use a solid beta-alumina electrolyte, typically written as β’'-10 alumina. Examples of secondary sodium-beta batteries are sodium-metal chloride and sodium-sulfur 11 batteries.
