IEC 62973-4 pdf – Railway applications – Rolling stock – Batteries for auxiliary power supply systems – Part 4: Secondary sealed nickel-metal hydride batteries
This part of lEC 62973 applies to secondary sealed nickel-metal hydride battery technologiesfor auxiliary power supply systems used on rolling stock.
This document specifies the requirements of the characteristics and tests for the sealednickel-metal hydride cells and supplements lEC 62973-1 which applies to any rolling stocktypes (e.g. light rail vehicles，tramways,streetcars，metros,commuter trains,regional trains,high speed trains,locomotives,etc.). Unless otherwise specified,the requirements ofIEC62973-1 apply.
This document also specifies the requirements of the interface between the batteries and thebattery chargers.
The following documents are referred to in the text in such a way that some or all of theircontent constitutes requirements of this document. For dated references,only the editioncited applies.For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including

nickel-metal hydride batteryNi-MH battery
secondary battery with an electrolyte of aqueous potassium hydroxide，a positive electrodecontaining nickel as nickel hydroxide and a negative electrode of hydrogen in the form of ametal hydride
Note 1 to entry: Nickel-metal hydride battery contains assembly of sealed cells.
[SOURCE: IEC 60050-482;2004,482-05-08, modified – Abbreviation and Note 1 to entry havebeen added.]
basic functional unit, consisting of an assembly of electrodes, electrolyte , container, terminals
and usually separators，that is a source of electric energy obtained by direct conversion ofchemical energy
Note 1 to entry: ln this document cell means secondary sealed nickel-metal hydride cell,
[SOURCE: IEC 60050-482:2004,482-01-01, modified- Note 1 to entry has been replaced.]
cell which remains closed and does not release either gas or liquid when operated within thelimits specified by the manufacturer
Note 1 to entry: A sealed cell may be equipped with a safety device to prevent a dangerously high internalpressure and is designed to operate during its life in its original sealed state.
[SOURCE: IEC 60050-482:2004,482-05-17]
cell which is designed to be electrically recharged
Note 1 to entry: The recharge is accomplished by way of a reversible chemical reaction.[SOURCE: lEC 60050-482:2004,482-01-03]
group of cells connected together either in series and/or parallel configuration with or withoutprotective devices (e.g. fuse or PTC) and monitoring circuitry
