This SAE Recommended Practice is intended as a guide toward standard practice and is subject to change to keep pace with experience and technical advances. It describes a body of tests which may be used as needed for abuse testing of electric or hybrid electric vehicle batteries to determine the response of such batteries to conditions or events which are beyond their normal operating range. This document is derived from a similar document originally developed by the U.S. Advanced Battery Consortium. (See 2.2.1.)
J2464 is over 5 years old. This standard has should be revised to clarify the Sections and improve test procedure description, based on experience using these procedures.
