SECTION 2 - Lead Acid Batteries INTRODUCTION
Batteries are an essential part of any standby generator system and some 90% of all generator failures are due to batteries.
It is therefore vital that batteries are stored, commissioned and maintained as detailed overleaf. Reference should also be made to the Battery Manufacturer’s leaflet.
Batteries are usually supplied with the generator in ‘dry-charged’ form. In order to commission dry- charged lead-acid batteries, pre-mixed electrolyte of the correct type and specific gravity must be added to the cells of the battery.
