Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) Part 2-12: Environment Compatibility levels for low-frequency conducted disturbances and signalling in public medium-voltage power supply systems
|Publication Date:||1 April 2003|
|ICS Code (Electromagnetic compatibility in general):||33.100.01|
Scope and object
This part of IEC 61000 is concerned with conducted disturbances in the frequency range from 0 kHz to 9 kHz, with an extension up to 148,5 kHz specifically for mains signalling systems. It gives compatibility levels for public medium voltage a.c. distribution systems having a nominal voltage between 1 kV and 35 kV and a nominal frequency of 50 Hz or 60 Hz (see IEC 60038).
Compatibility levels are specified for electromagnetic disturbances of the types which can be expected in public medium voltage power supply systems, for guidance in:
a) the limits to be set for disturbance emission into public power supply systems (including the planning levels defined in 3.1.5);
b) the immunity limits to be set by product committees and others for the equipment exposed to the conducted disturbances present in public power supply systems.
The disturbance phenomena considered are:
• voltage fluctuations and flicker;
• harmonics up to and including order 50;
• inter-harmonics up to the 50th harmonic;
• voltage distortions at higher frequencies (above 50th harmonic);
• voltage dips and short supply interruptions;
• voltage unbalance;
• transient overvoltages;
• power frequency variation;
• d.c. components;
• mains signalling.
Most of these phenomena are described in IEC 61000-2-1. In cases where it is not yet possible to establish compatibility levels, some information is provided.
The medium-voltage systems covered by this standard are public distribution systems supplying either:
a) private installations in which equipment is connected directly or through transformers, or
b) substations feeding public low-voltage distribution systems.
The compatibility levels specified in this standard apply at the point of common coupling in the case of (a) and at the medium-voltage terminals of the substation in the case of (b). See Clause 4.
