The objective of this Draft Standard is to establish uniform test methods and procedures for conducting performance tests of mechanical or thermal energy storage system(s) (ESS). An ESS is a system that consumes energy to increase the internal energy of the storage media and releases the stored energy, producing useful power or heat. This Draft Standard provides standard test procedures for ESS with the goal to provide the highest level of accuracy consistent with current engineering practice.
