scope:

This Technical Report specifies a method of temperature-rise verification of low-voltage switchgear and controlgear ASSEMBLIES by calculation.

The method is applicable to enclosed ASSEMBLIES or partitioned sections of ASSEMBLIES without forced ventilation. It is not applicable where temperature rise verification to the relevant product standard of the IEC 61439 series has been established

NOTE 1 The influence of the materials and wall thicknesses usually used for enclosures can have some effect on the steady state temperatures. However, the generalised approach used in this technical report ensures it is applicable to enclosures made of sheet steel, sheet aluminium, cast iron, insulating material and the like. The proposed method is intended to determine the temperature rise of the air inside the enclosure.

NOTE 2 The air temperature within the enclosure is equal to the ambient air temperature outside the enclosure plus the temperature rise of the air inside the enclosure caused by the power losses of the installed equipment.

Unless otherwise specified, the ambient air temperature outside the ASSEMBLY is the air temperature indicated for the installation (average value over 24 h) of 35 °C. If the ambient air temperature outside the ASSEMBLY at the place of use exceeds 35 °C, this higher temperature is deemed to be the ambient air temperature.
