As part of commissioning a system on-site, Sandia engineers will perform a safety analysis. This includes a Non-NRTL inspection, hazard analysis, safety system analysis/test (as applicable), and thermal scanning during operation. Additional test and analyses are performed as needed.
The ESTP and ESAL are close partners with the Battery Abuse Testing Laboratory (BAT-Lab). Cells, modules, and systems tested at these labs can, and often do, undergo concurrent safety testing at the BAT-Lab. Results from this testing can be used to inform models for grid scale system safety.
