  • The series of tests described in this report are intended to simulate actual use and abuse conditions and internally initiated failures that may be experienced in electrochemical storage systems (ECSS). These tests were derived from Failure Mode and Effect Analysis, user input, and historical abuse testing. The tests are to provide a common framework for various ECSS technologies. The primary purpose of testing is to gather response information to external/internal inputs. Some tests and/or measurements may not be required for some ECSS technologies and designs if it is demonstrated that a test is not applicable, and the measurements yield nomore » useful information.« less
  • This manual defines a complete body of abuse tests intended to simulate actual use and abuse conditions that may be beyond the normal safe operating limits experienced by electrical energy storage systems used in electric and hybrid electric vehicles. The tests are designed to provide a common framework for abuse testing various electrical energy storage systems used in both electric and hybrid electric vehicle applications. The manual incorporates improvements and refinements to test descriptions presented in the Society of Automotive Engineers Recommended Practice SAE J2464 ''Electric Vehicle Battery Abuse Testing'' including adaptations to abuse tests to address hybrid electric vehiclemore » applications and other energy storage technologies (i.e., capacitors). These (possibly destructive) tests may be used as needed to determine the response of a given electrical energy storage system design under specifically defined abuse conditions. This manual does not provide acceptance criteria as a result of the testing, but rather provides results that are accurate and fair and, consequently, comparable to results from abuse tests on other similar systems. The tests described are intended for abuse testing any electrical energy storage system designed for use in electric or hybrid electric vehicle applications whether it is composed of batteries, capacitors, or a combination of the two.« less
  • U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) document Evaluation of Dredged Material Proposed for Discharge in Waters of the U.S. - Testing Manual. This document is commonly referred to as the Inland Testing Manual (ITM). The purpose of the ITM is to provide guidance regarding technical protocols under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA) for evaluating proposed discharges of dredged material associated with navigational dredging projects into waters of the United States. This memorandum provides background information on the ITM, describes its scope and applicability, and outlines a schedule for its implementation. In accordancemore » with that schedule, the ITM will be phased in over the next 18 months.« less
  • This document is a user's guide to Version 1.1 of the Load Management Strategy Testing Model (LMSTM). It is intended for both readers who wish to run the computer program as well as readers who wish to simply get an overview of the model and explanations about its output reports. The manual describes LMSTM's general structure and primary algorithms. It describes the model's output reports and input requirements and provides hints on the model's operation on a computer and its application in utility planning. The manual is accompanied by a Quick Guide to the LMSTM input set, which intended formore » use at a computer terminal.« less
  • NEWTWC is a DDAC control task designed to help operators conduct transient waveform tests on the elctrodynamic shaker at Building 854 of LLNL's Site 300. Like other DDAC control tasks, NEWTWC is a menu-driven system that guides the operator through the four parts of dynamic testing: test set-up, calibration/noise identification, execution, and post-test data reduction. During each of these parts, NEWTWC interacts with the operator in an informative and easily understood manner. During test set-up, as the operator defines the test to be run, NEWTWC displays coherent blocks of test parameters for examination and modification, providing the operator with appropriatemore » prompts and with legal values for each parameter. After the operator has defined a test, NEWTWC provides the capability of saving that test in the DDAC test library. During execution, NEWTWC controls the shaker to an operator-defined reference, captures specimen data, writes it onto magnetic tape, and presents real-time information. After execution is completed, NEWTWC leads the operator into the GPDAP data reduction program, where he can read the test's data tape and reduce the data to a final form. 6 refs., 45 figs.« less
