IEC 62888-6:2019 specifies the specific requirements for EMS to be used for benchmarking, daily energy consumption monitoring, technical research and development.
This document provides the requirements for monitoring consumed energy on board in daily services in an easy way and the measured data are applicable for general purposes in industry such as energy management, energy saving, etc. However, this document is not applicable for billing purposes.
The practical purposes in industrial fields are, e.g.:
a) monitoring daily energy consumption of vehicles
b) obtaining data on influential factors, such as operational commands and surrounding conditions, in order to analyse relations between operations and energy;
c) energy management of power flow between vehicles and fixed installations;
d) implementing investigation tests of research and development for vehicle systems;
e) energy cost forecasting for analysing overall efficiency and consumption.
The requirements specified in this document supplement and/or amend the requirements specified in IEC 62888-1 to IEC 62888-5.
