Description of the IEEE 1187 Standard Recommended Practices for Designing Installation and Mounting of Lead Acid Battery with Regulating Valve (VRLA)

This recommended practice provides design methods and procedures for storage, placement, installation, ventilation, instrumentation, pre-assembly, assembly and charging of lead-acid (VRLA) batteries with a control valve. Required security measures are also included. This recommended practice is applicable to stationary installations with floating charge mode.
This recommended practice contains several informative applications. They provide additional educational information related to the topics presented in the main body of the document.
Battery sizing, maintenance, capacity checking, charging equipment, battery protection, and monitoring are outside the scope of this recommended practice. The use of alternative energy is also beyond the scope of this recommended practice.

You can order the translation of this standard and other standards of the IEEE series.
