ALLOWED TRACTIVE SYSTEM ACCUMULATORS


RULE
APPROVED
NOT APPROVED OBSERVATIONS
All types of
accumulators
except molten
salt and
thermal
batteries are
allowed.
There are no
concessions
for using
LiFePO4
chemistry
cells
TRACTIVE SYSTEM ACCUMULATOR CONTAINER - GENERAL
REQUIREMENTS
All cells or
supercapacitors
which store
the tractive
system energy
will be built
into
accumulator
segments and
must be
enclosed in
(an)
accumulator
container(s).
If spare
accumulators
are to be used
then they all
have to be of
the same size,
weight and
type as those
that are

EV3.2.4

EV 3.3
EV 3.3.1

EV3.3.2

replaced.
Spare
accumulator
packs have to
be presented
at Electrical
Tech
Inspection.
Each
accumulator
container
must be
removable
from the car
while still
remaining
rules
compliant.
Tractive System Accumulator Container - Electrical
Configuration
the poles of
the
accumulator
segment(s)
and/or cells
must be
isolated from
the inner wall
of the
accumulator
container with
an insulating
material that
is rated for the
maximum
tractive
system
voltage.
Every
accumulator
container
must contain
at least one
fuse and at
least two
accumulator
isolation
relays
Maintenance
plugs,

additional
contactors or
similar
measures
have to be
taken to allow
electrical
separation of
the internal
cell segments
such that the
separated cell
segments
contain a
maximum
static voltage
of less than
120VDC and a
maximum
energy of 6MJ
