Do you need a multi-user copy?




IEC TR 62660-4:2017(E) provides the test data on the candidate alternative test methods for the internal short circuit test according to of IEC 62660-3:2016. The internal short circuit test in this document is intended to simulate an internal short circuit of a cell caused by the contamination of conductive particle, and to verify the safety performance of the cell under such conditions.
This document is applicable to the secondary lithium-ion cells and cell blocks used for propulsion of electric vehicles (EV) including battery electric vehicles (BEV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV).
This document does not cover cylindrical cells.
