Proper battery maintenance is an essential component of critical power or uninterruptible power supply systems. While batteries have a limited life expectancy, you can address the
factors that diminish capacity and cause premature failure. Battery backup failures can be reduced by understanding the causes: excessive cycling, improper charging, poor temperature control, installation errors, manufacturing deficiencies and operational errors. Different types of batteries (lead acid, nickel cadium, etc.) also have their own weaknesses.
• Identify types of batteries and their operating principles
• Understand battery maintenance and testing techniques
• Identify and correctly use various types of test equipment and hand tools
• Use battery installation and operating instructions and the NFPA 70E to develop a battery/cell inspection form
• Utilize the IEEE Standard 450 2010, IEEE Recommended Practice for Maintenance, Testing and Replacement of Vented Lead-Acid Batteries for Stationary Applications
• Identify battery and battery room installation requirements per IEEE guidelines
• Perform maintenance procedures per IEEE Standard 450
