Battery Calculation


< 2% per month at 25ºC
Can any one tell me what does it means? If i am calculating battery bank what figure should i use for Depth of Discharge. help me out plz


The less than 2% is likely to be about self discharge.

About your other question, depth of discharge or DoD, depends upon battery construction, chemistry and a host of factors. Normally figures are given in the datasheet of the battery.


For lead acid batteries, the depth of discharge should be no more than 50%.
