To study a fire resistance test procedure for traction battery.
The current KMVSS traction battery fire resistance test, draft of ECE R-100 RESS fire resistance test in outside and draft of GTR/SGS test procedure for hydrogen storage fire test were analysed.
The current procedure of KSVSS fire resistance test is appropriate for a small scale of hybrid electric vehicle traction battery when a flame temperature control is adjusted and a test specimen is place on the test equipment.
A problem occurs when the electric vehicle traction batter is tested, because it is so large and heavy that a test specimen is hard to be placed on the test equipment.
The flame temperature is difficult to adjust because the top of the burner is open.
