This document specifies the requirements for the performance of all fixed installations electronic power converters, using controllable and/or non-controllable electronic valves, intended for traction power supply.
The devices can be controlled by means of current, voltage or light. Non-bistable devices are assumed to be operated in the switched mode.
This document applies to fixed installations of the following electric traction systems:
• guided mass transport systems such as: tramways, light rail systems, elevated and underground railways, mountain railways, trolleybusses.
This document does not apply to:
• cranes, transportable platforms and similar transportation equipment on rails,
• suspended cable cars,
• funicular railways.
This document applies to diode rectifiers, controlled rectifiers, DC converters, inverters and frequency converters.
The equipment covered in this document is the converter itself.
