exchange, routine and type tests, as well as marking and designation.
Battery systems described in this document are used for the energy storage system (ESS) for
the traction power of railway vehicles such as hybrid vehicles as defined in IEC 62864-1:2016.
Auxiliary batteries to supply power only to the auxiliary equipment are excluded.
Subcomponents within the battery systems, e.g. battery management system (BMS) and
battery thermal management system (BTMS), are also covered in this document.
Power conversion equipment (e.g. chopper, converter, etc.), inductors, capacitors and
switchgear are excluded from the scope of this document.
General requirements for onboard ESS are described in IEC 62864-1:2016.
This document specifies the lithium-ion battery technology but does not prevent the use of
battery technologies other than lithium-ion technology for application as traction batteries.
A hybrid energy storage system, which uses two or more energy storage technologies
combined, e.g. a traction battery and double layer capacitors, is not covered in this document.
However, if different technologies of energy storage systems are used on the same railway
vehicle and managed independently, each independent energy storage system is covered by
its own document.

This part of IEC 62660 specifies test procedures and the acceptance criteria for safety
performance of secondary lithium-ion cells and cell blocks used for the propulsion of electric
vehicles (EV) including battery electric vehicles (BEV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV).
NOTE 1 Cell blocks can be used as an alternative to cells according to the agreement between the manufacturer
and the customer.
NOTE 2 Concerning the cell for plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), the manufacturer can select either the test
condition of the BEV application or the HEV application.
This International Standard intends to determine the basic safety performance of cells used in
a battery pack and system under intended use, and reasonably foreseeable misuse or
incident, during the normal operation of the EV. The safety requirements of the cell in this
standard are based on the premise that the cells are properly used in a battery pack and
system within the limits for voltage, current and temperature as specified by the cell
manufacturer (cell operating region).
The evaluation of the safety of cells during transport and storage is not covered by this
standard.
NOTE 3 The safety performance requirements for lithium-ion battery packs and systems are defined in
ISO 12405-3. The specifications and safety requirements for lithium-ion battery packs and systems of electrically
propelled mopeds and motorcycles are defined in ISO 18243 (under development). IEC 62619 (under development)
covers the safety requirements for the lithium ion cells and batteries for industrial applications including forklift
trucks, golf carts, and automated guided vehicles.
NOTE 4 Information on the cell operating region is provided in Annex A.
