Monitoring and measurement of battery parameters is an important element of maintaining a fully operational battery system. This guide presents and discusses measurable parameters of batteries used in stationary battery systems and the utilization of such observations. This guide does not give a listing of commercially available systems, but it does provide a means of establishing specifications for the desired parameters monitored

Recommended Practice for Battery Monitoring in Stationary Applications
This recommended practice provides specific recommendations for selection and application of parameters for monitoring Valve-Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA), Vented Lead-Acid (VLA) and Nickel-Cadmium (Ni-Cd) battery systems in stationary applications. The monitoring of battery systems utilizing emerging energy storage technologies (such as lithium, sodium, flow batteries, etc.) are beyond the scope of this recommended practice. This recommended practice also contains several informative annexes. These provide additional tutorial information relating to topics introduced in the body of the document.
IEEE Guide for Selection and Use of Battery Monitoring Equipment in Stationary Applications
Operational parameters that may be observed by battery monitoring equipment used in stationary applications and the relative value of such observations are discussed in this guide. Although a list of commercially available systems is not given, a means for establishing specifications for the desired parameters to be monitored is provided.
