Substation Battery Testing - Instant Video
Periodic battery testing helps determine when and what kind of maintenance a battery needs. Testing helps verify the physical condition of a battery, its state of charge, and its ability to operate when needed. This 33-minute video explains the basic steps for battery voltage and resistance testing, specific gravity testing, integrity and capacity testing, and impedance testing.
