The U.S. NRC and Brookhaven National Laboratory completed a research project confirming that lead-acid batteries used in nuclear power plants can operate for extended periods of time in the event of a sustained loss of ac power. The preliminary results of how the batteries performed while supplying representative load profiles from nuclear power plants are discussed in this paper.
