This document defines a process for testing domestic electric water heaters developed under the Electric Power Research Institute’s (EPRI’s) ANSI/CEA-2045 Field Demonstrations Project. The report includes procedures to test water heaters designed specifically to meet requirements set forth in Demand Response-Ready Water Heater Specification: Preliminary Requirements for CEA-2045 Field Demonstration (EPRI report 3002002710). The procedures defined herein are intended to test and verify that the water heater supports the ANSI/CEA-2045 standard in the manner defined in the aforementioned requirements document. Tests to quantify the energy efficiency or demand response performance of the water heater itself are beyond the scope of this test plan.
