Guide for the characterization and evaluation of alkaline batteries in stationary applications

This document defines guidance for an objective evaluation of alkaline energy storage technologies by a potential user for a stationary application. Tutorial information including technology descriptions, operating parameters, failure modes, safety information, battery architecture, and qualification and application considerations are described. This guide is to be used in conjunction with IEEE Std 1679, IEEE Recommended Practice for the Characterization and Evaluation of Energy Storage Technologies in Stationary Applications. For the purposes of this document, alkaline batteries include those secondary (rechargeable) electrochemistries with aqueous alkaline electrolyte. Examples of secondary alkaline chemistries are zinc-air, nickel-zinc, nickel-metal hydride, nickel-iron, and zinc-manganese dioxide. Primary (non-rechargeable) alkaline batteries are beyond the scope of this document. Secondary nickel-cadmium batteries are also beyond the scope of this document as they are already well-known, frequently deployed, and covered in other IEEE standards. This document does not cover sizing, installation, maintenance and testing techniques, except insofar as they may influence the evaluation of an alkaline battery for its intended application.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.


No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.


No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.


No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.


No Inactive-Reserved Standards
