Organization: IEEE
Publication Date: 30 March 2000
Status: active
Page Count: 28
scope:

This standard prescribes the electrical interfaces among the components comprising the auxiliary power systems and their electrical interface with other train-borne systems. As such, this standard treats the auxiliary power system components (e.g., static inverters and converters, low-voltage dc power supplies, back-up battery systems, and battery chargers) as black boxes and addresses only their interface requirements. It does not provide standards or recommendations for the following:

- Rotating machinery, such as motor alternator sets

- Motive power systems or auxiliary power systems required for locomotives

- Mechanical mounting or vibration isolation of equipment

- Car-body wiring, branch circuits, circuit breakers, protection, and devices to interconnect the auxiliary power components with other car-borne equipment

Purpose

The purpose of this standard is to standardize the electrical input and output requirements of the auxiliary power system components. This will be conducive to standardized designs rather than custom designs of carborne equipment utilizing the supply voltages of the auxiliary power systems. It will also aid in more clearly defining the electrical interface requirements between the major component parts that comprise the auxiliary power systems, thus promoting their standardized design. The combined effect should increase the number of potential suppliers and correspondingly result in reduced railcar costs.
