Abstract

IEC 62660-2:2018 is available as IEC 62660-2:2018 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.

IEC 62660-2:2018 specifies test procedures to observe the reliability and abuse behaviour of secondary lithium-ion cells and cell blocks used for propulsion of electric vehicles including battery electric vehicles (BEV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). This document specifies the standard test procedures and conditions for basic characteristics of lithium-ion cells for use in propulsion of battery and hybrid electric vehicles. The tests are indispensable for obtaining essential data on reliability and abuse behaviour of lithium-ion cells for use in various designs of battery systems and battery packs. This document provides standard classification of description of test results to be used for the design of battery systems or battery packs. IEC 62660-2:2018 cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2010. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) The procedure of forced discharge test has been clarified (6.4.3.2).
b) "Cell block" has been added to the scope (Clause 1).
c) Option of temperature cycling test with electrical operation has been deleted (6.3.2).
d) The test conditions for overcharge test have been revised (6.4.2.2).
