Large stationary battery plants are reliect upon to deliver emergency power to mission critical equipment ranging from a few seconds to many hours. The discharge rate and specific load at which they are discharged ultimately determines the actual current demanded of them. Power engineers and system designers strive to make the best material and economic choices to satisfy the needs of the system. From tlle maintenance perspective, maintaining reliable connection integrity should be considered paramount in operating a reliable battery plant. This paper will explore the fundamentals of establishing, tracking and maintaining connection integrity for large stationary battery plants and discuss the resulting effects of neglecting to address the requirements established by the industry.
