Battery discharge testing: Implementing NERC standards and field experiences

Dinesh Chhajer

Robert Foster

This paper will provide a summary of performance and modified performance discharge test methods as recommended by NERC PRC 005-2 for vented lead acid batteries. Standard practices for performing the test, results analysis to determine the battery capacity, minimum accepted values, and battery replacement criteria will be discussed as per IEEE recommendations. Case studies will be presented to illustrate best field practices to overcome challenges associated with discharge testing.
