Title: Battery Energy Storage Test (BEST) Facility first progress report

Abstract

The Battery Energy Storage Test (BEST) Facility will be a national center for testing and evaluating battery energy storage systems, including associated electrical conversion equipment developed for use on electric power grids. The project is funded jointly by EPRI, DOE, and PSE and G. The BEST Facility program consists of four phases: design, construction, testing and acceptance, and operation. This report covers the activities of the first three phases during the time period March 1, 1976 to July 1, 1978. Included are a background review, key milestone dates, a description of activities for the three phases (including those associated with the future implementation of the second test bay), and a description of major interactions between the BEST Facility program and the advanced battery development programs. 15 figures, 3 tables.
