High-voltage switchgear and controlgear – Part 1: Common specifications
|Publication Date:||1 August 2011|
|ICS Code (High voltage switchgear and controlgear):||29.130.10|
|ICS Code (Other switchgear and controlgear):||29.130.99|
This part of IEC 62271 applies to a.c. switchgear and controlgear designed for indoor and outdoor installation and for operation at service frequencies up to and including 60 Hz on systems having voltages above 1 000 V.
This standard applies to all high-voltage switchgear and controlgear except as otherwise specified in the relevant IEC standards for the particular type of switchgear and controlgear.
NOTE For the use of this standard, high voltage (see IEV 601-01-27) is the rated voltage above 1 000 V. However, the term medium voltage (see IEV 601-01-28) is commonly used for distribution systems with voltages above 1 kV and generally applied up to and including 52 kV.
