IEC 61800-3:2017 Part 3 Released for Electrical Power Drive Systems

ABBNewBerlinmechanicalroom2The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has released IEC 61800-3:2017 . This standard includes Adjustable speed electrical power drive systems – Part 3: EMC requirements and specific test methods and is now available on the IEC webstore.

Description: “IEC 61800-3:2017 specifies electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements for power drive systems (PDSs, defined in 3.1). These are adjustable speed AC or DC motor drives. Requirements are stated for PDSs with converter input and/or output voltages (line-to-line voltage), up to 35 kV AC RMS.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2004 and Amendment 1:2011. This edition constitutes a technical revision.  This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:

a)  clarification of requirements for the test report, particularly when a number of alternative test methods exist;
b)  introduction of a more detailed test setup for radiated emission measurements, along with the introduction of a 3 m measurement distance for small size equipment;
c)  general updates in the informative annexes.”
