This document is to be used for tailoring AIAA S-122-2007, Electrical Power Systems for Unmanned Spacecraft, to provide an effective baseline for space vehicle SV electrical power system designs that employ lithium-ion batteries. The focus is on battery solutions with large-format cells that need monitoring, telemetering, and balancing to operate safely. For battery solutions that have small-format cells with internal safety features, in a battery topology that provides safe self-balancing of the cells, then cell-level monitoring, telemetering, and balancing are not required if appropriate test andor analysis are available to support this premise. This document is intended for use by SV contractors and sub-contractors for spacecraft with architecturesdesigns including power management and distribution PMAD systems and lithium ion batteries.
