Does Russia need its own set of requirements for hybrids and electric?

In the Ministry of Industry believes that the current security issues of hybrids and electric cars in Russia have not been studied properly – have no means of rescue or instructions for putting out fires or disaster recovery with such transport.

The Russian Ministry of Industry to scientific research Automobile Institute (US) in 2016 to create a special security requirements for all hybrid and electric vehicles, imported or assembled in Russia. About this newspaper “Izvestia”.

The Institute will have to test vehicles with alternative propulsion systems to explore the possible risks in their operation. The list of possible threats were over-voltage during charging, short circuit, insulation breakdown and different scenarios that occur during an accident.

According to the results of tests will be generated a list of requirements that include in the technical regulations of the Customs Union “On the safety of wheeled vehicles.”

In the Ministry of Industry believes that the current security issues of hybrids and electric cars in Russia have not been studied properly – have no means of rescue or instructions for putting out fires or disaster recovery with such transport.

The publication presents data of the Ministry, according to which the hybrids and electric vehicles require special safety measures during the operation, because there is a risk of electric shock or death.

“No additional requirements for insulation, additional dust and water can cause electric shock when the long-term operation of the vehicle, as well as in certain weather conditions,” – say in the Ministry of Industry. The department also noted the potential danger of the electrolyte lithium-ion batteries, which can cause burns.

All the instructions of the Ministry of research will be carried out within the framework of the federal program dedicated to improving road safety and reducing mortality in the period from 2013 to 2020.

One of the possible measures is to develop a means of controlling the insulation resistance between the high voltage and low-voltage network that charged us. According to the study we will know whether this element is mounted on electric cars and hybrids in Russia mandatory.

Recall that in last December it became known that the Ministry of Industry and interested in the creation of common security requirements for all modern vehicles, implemented in the Russian Federation. Office instructed us to examine this issue, explaining that climatic characteristics and specificity of roads in Russia, which may adversely affect the operation of automotive electronics.
