International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 61982-3:2001
Title Secondary batteries for the propulsion of electric road vehicles - Part 3: Performance and life testing (traffic compatible, urban use vehicles)
Project Number 13375
Abstract/Scope This part of EN 61982 is applicable to performance and life testing of electrical energy storage systems for general purpose, traffic compatible, light urban use electric road vehicles that are designed for transportation of passengers or goods in city centre driving. For the purposes of this standard, the electrical energy storage system is defined as one that is recharged electrically though some of the test procedures may be applicable to fuel cells and other mechanically rechargeable systems. The test procedures may also be applicable to electrical energy storage systems used in some types of hybrid-electric vehicle though detailed consideration of electrical energy storage systems for hybrid vehicles will be addressed separately

Normative reference (6)  

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
