End of life run time is the critical sizing factor for battery systems – especially for large data centers and other high-power applications. Current recommended practice is to oversize battery systems based on product watt-hour capacity. Battery design and testing practice, however, determine life based on reduction of run time at fixed energy discharges. Using run time as the basis for determining product sizing matches industry practice and provides for more efficient system sizing which can save users both space and cost.
