  • Reducing battery maintenance costs through enhanced charge control and improved testing and monitoring techniques

    This paper introduces readers to field battery audit results from a managed case study of two very different outside plant (OSP) battery installations. The field data is being developed in high temperature climate locations but the relevance is not limited to a high temperature scenario. This paper includes both laboratory and field data that illustrate how economies can be achieved through appropriate charge control and simplified battery analysis techniques used in conjunction with regular scheduled maintenance activity. Additionally, the author presents data obtained from an installed automated battery monitoring system capable of providing the necessary insight for understanding what direct field activity may be needed and at what intervals. Maintenance programs are designed to support and ensure some minimum system performance objectives. He compares the designated site performance targets against the actual measured performance observed at these installations and reports his preliminary conclusions based on this data.

  • New regulatory battery maintenance requirements as mandated by NERC PRC-005-2/3

    The major grid failure of August 2003 led Congress to pass the Electric Modernization Act of 2005. This act established the Federal Electric Reliability Commission (FERC) to impose regulatory standards on all functional entities that are a part of the Bulk Power System (BPS), sometimes referred to as the Bulk Electric System (BES). PRC-005-2/3 now requires all utilities to follow minimum maintenance requirements for batteries within a prescribed time interval for all equipment connected to the BPS/BES. This paper addresses the specific requirements that every electric utility/functional entity that ties into the BPS/BES must follow with an explanation of the difference between reliability as defined within the NERC glossary vs. the IEEE Stationary Battery Committee Standards and Guidelines.

  • Lead-acid battery maintenance using multilayer perceptron models

    Predictive maintenance of components has the potential to significantly reduce costs for maintenance and to reduce unexpected failures. Failure prognostics for heavy-duty truck lead-acid batteries is considered with a multilayer perceptron (MLP) predictive model. Data used in the study contains information about how approximately 46,000 vehicles have been operated starting from the delivery date until the date when they come to the workshop. The model estimates a reliability and lifetime probability function for a vehicle entering a workshop. First, this work demonstrates how heterogeneous data is handled, then the architectures of the MLP models are discussed. Main contributions are a battery maintenance planning method and predictive performance evaluation based on reliability and lifetime functions, a new model for reliability function when its true shape is unknown, the improved objective function for training MLP models, and handling of imbalanced data and comparison of performance of different neural network architectures. Evaluation shows significant improvements of the model compared to more simple, time-based maintenance plans.

  • Use of battery ohmic testing to improve network reliability and decrease battery maintenance cost

    While it is well known that ohmic testing results correlate to the capacity of stationary valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries that are manufactured in North America and Europe, it cannot be assumed that this relationship transfers directly to the batteries manufactured in China by a diverse array of new battery manufacturers. Since stationary battery manufacturing is relatively new to China, different levels of battery quality and consistency are being delivered by a variety of battery suppliers, thereby presenting a challenge to Chinese telecom operators. This paper is a study presenting how ohmic testing can be successfully used by telecom operators in China to maintain and test the health of batteries in their networks, thus makes the maintenance work pertinent and proactive, cost effective and highly efficient. It can also be utilized as a quality assurance tool used both at battery manufacturing facilities in China to improve the quality of batteries manufactured and as an effective acceptance procedure by the telecom operators. China Mobile is one of the largest battery users in the world. Since early 2006, China Mobile has performed thousands of ohmic conductance tests and subsequent discharge tests on batteries and battery strings. These tests were performed to ascertain the consistency between conductance test data and battery capacity as determined by off line discharge testing. Initial analysis of the results indicates an acceptable correlation between conductance and discharge capacity test results. And the application of this relationship will change the traditional practice of battery maintenance work, thus providing significant value for the telecommunications operators. The final conclusion of this project will demonstrate how telecom operators can have better control of the quality of new batteries, and effectively evaluate the performance of the batteries of different model types from different manufacturers. Also, on-line conductance testing can screen out the defective or low performing cells, and can effectively advise the maintenance technicians to take pertinent maintenance action. Meanwhile, the application of the relationship between conductance and capacity will enable the users to make the best use of the batteries while obtaining the required back-up time during their service life. It also provides reasonable indication of the need for replacement of a battery, thus maximizing maintenance efficiency. With the accumulation of conductance testing data and the analysis of it, telecom operators can have more accurate projections of the battery's aging tendency and its life cycle, thus taking the appropriate preventive maintenance actions and proactive purchasing strategy. The whole process will greatly decrease the overall work load and cost investment. With more understanding of ohmic testing and more confidence in the technology Chinese telecom operators will do less discharge testing over time.

  • Development of a back-up battery management system - A case study in petroleum development Oman

    Back-up batteries are intended to meet the immediate requirements of the plant during emergencies or failures in the control supplies. Battery maintenance plays a very important role in running the plant continuously. There are approximately 1000 battery charges and uninterruptable power supplies (UPSs) in petroleum development Oman (PDO), each battery charger is attached to, on average, 84 cells. To allow effective monitoring of approximately 84,000 battery cells, and to reduce the delay introduced by the current manual monitoring regime, a novel computer based device has been implemented. This paper presents information on the sensors used in the system and on the interface used to inform operators of battery condition.
