Power Electronics Open System Interfaces in Zonal Electrical Distribution Systems Rated Above 100 kW
|Publication Date:||24 September 2020|
This standard identifies open system interfaces for high power electronics equipment used in zonal electrical distribution systems rated above 100 kW. Interfaces are grouped into key and non-key interfaces and are based on technological maturity, accepted practices, and allowances for future technology insertions. This standard defines how openness of system should be verified and validated through rigorous assessment mechanisms, interface control management, and proactive conformance testing to enable plug-and-play operability independently of the components origin. It also formulates specific interface requirements for open zonal electrical distribution systems on ships and platforms.
The purpose of this document is to provide a uniform standard for high-power electronics open system interfaces in zonal electrical distribution systems rated above 100 kW. The stated specifications and requirements are universally applied to maintain total power system performance and efficiency under changing mission and loads conditions. They are sufficient for most industrial and commercial installations, including ships and platforms.
