Newly Released IEC 62586 Part 2 for Power Quality Parameters in Power Supply Systems

pq_temporary_bannerThe International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has released IEC 62586-2:2017. This standard applies to Power quality measurement in power supply systems – Part 2: Functional tests and uncertainty requirements and is now available on the IEC webstore.

Description: “IEC 62586-2:2017 specifies functional tests and uncertainty requirements for instruments whose functions include measuring, recording, and possibly monitoring power quality parameters in power supply systems, and whose measuring methods (class A or class S) are defined in IEC 61000-4-30.
This document applies to power quality instruments complying with IEC 62586-1.

This document can also be referred to by other product standards (e.g. digital fault recorders, revenue meters, MV or HV protection relays) specifying devices embedding class A or class S power quality functions according to IEC 61000-4-30.

A Dash of Maxwell’s: A Maxwell’s Equations Primer – Part One

Solving Maxwell’s Equations for real-life situations, like predicting the RF emissions from a cell tower, requires more mathematical horsepower than any individual mind can muster. These equations don’t give the scientist or engineer just insight, they are literally the answer to everything RF.

These requirements are applicable in single-, dual- (split phase) and 3-phase AC power supply systems at 50 Hz or 60 Hz.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2013. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:

– test procedures for RVC and current have been added;
– mistakes have been fixed.
.”
