    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for the installation and maintenance of secondary batteries installed in stand-alone power systems, i.e. power systems that are not connected to the power distribution system of an electricity supply authority. It applies to the installation of all types of batteries.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out recommended practices for the installation, maintenance, testing and replacement of secondary batteries, having nominal voltages not exceeding 115 V d.c., for use with stand-alone systems.Stand-alone systems are systems that are not connected to the power distribution systems of an electricity supply authority. Stand-alone systems are supplied with power from one of a number of sources: a photovoltaic array, a wind generator, a water generator, or a diesel generator.This Standard applies to the installation of all types of batteries including lead-acid and nickel-cadmium and covers both vented and valve-regulated cells.NOTE: AS 3011.1 and AS 3011.2 cover requirements for batteries having nominal voltages exceeding 115 V d.c.
