IEC 62660-03 NWP
Secondary lithium-ion cells for the propulsion of electric road vehicles - Safety requirements
This part of IEC 62660 specifies test procedures and acceptance criteria for safety performance of secondary lithium-ion cells used for propulsion of electric vehicles (EV) including battery electric vehicles (BEV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). -- This standard intends to secure the basic safety performance of cells as used in battery system under intended use and reasonably foreseeable misuse, during the normal operation of EV. The safety requirements of cell in this standard are based on the premise that the cells are properly used in a battery pack and system within the limit of voltage, current and temperature as specified by the cell manufacturer. The evaluation of the safety of cells during transport and storage is not covered by this standard. -- NOTE The safety performance requirements for lithium-ion battery packs and systems are defined in ISO12405-3 (under development).
