Best Practice Guide: Battery Storage Equipment – Electrical Safety Requirements (Australia)

“The guide provides minimum electrical safety criteria that could be applied to lithium-based battery energy storage equipment and is the result of extensive collaboration from system manufacturers, certifiers, safety regulators and industry bodies around Australia.”

“The Guide is voluntary for use by anyone in the supply chain of battery storage equipment. It is not referred to in any legislation as a mandatory requirement however, both electrical safety legislation and Australian Consumer Law requires electrical equipment to be safe and fit for purpose.”



IEC 62368-1 ED3: Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment – Part 1: Safety requirements has now been approved in the voting results as an international standard according to,FSP_DOC_ID,FSP_DOC_PIECE_ID:1311,1011222,319501

Twenty six P-Members voted, and 100% of those were in favour, with no negative votes recorded. For those who have TC 108 sign-in credentials, the compilation of comments document can also be downloaded from the above link.

New world record set in quantum computing simulation

Melbourne scientists have simulated the output of a 60-qubit quantum computer, which in general would require up to 18 000 petabytes, or more than a billion laptops, to describe.

The university’s simulation (was asked) to use Shor’s quantum factoring algorithm to find the two prime numbers (of) the semi-prime 961 307…. This enabled the simulation to solve the equation using just 13.8 terabytes of memory (instead of up to 18 000 petabytes).
