Grounding the Neutral of the Battery

We have a 3-phase ESS 5KVA multiplus-ll inverter installed it's using a Freedom Won 53V Battery.

The connection is battery to Bus-Bars. Bus-Bar to circuit breakers to inverters

My question is, must the neutral of the battery be grounded also?

Short story long. It is not required by the system to do so. Local regs may specify it is required (though not in SA). It is good practice to ground the casing.

But why is it shown in Wiring unlimited that the Battery has to be grounded?
