Stationary battery systems are generally employed in mission critical installations and require special consideration from project conception through final test. Such applications include data processing centers, process control, signaling systems and switch gear, to name but a few. However, installation flaws that go undetected can manifest themselves in a variety of ways long after a battery has been started up, signed off and installation personnel are off site. Post-installation anomalies can be avoided. This paper makes recommendations and provides guidelines relating primarily to the handling, installation and bench marking processes for large lead-acid battery systems of the wet and valve regulated varieties. It is hoped that the reader will glean useful information relating to this subject and apply it in a practical manner.
