Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Part 4-12: Testing and Measurement Techniques - Oscillatory Waves Immunity Test
|Publication Date:||1 April 2001|
|ICS Code (Immunity):||33.100.20|
This section of IEC 61000-4 relates to the immunity requirements and test methods for electrical and electronic equipment, under operational conditions, to oscillatory waves represented by:
a) non-repetitive damped oscillatory transients (ring wave) occurring in low-voltage power, control and signal lines supplied by public and non-public networks;
b) repetitive damped oscillatory waves occurring mainly in power, control and signal cables installed in high voltage and medium voltage (HV/MV) stations.
NOTE According to the frequencies considered in this standard, it is only relevant for an insulated switchgear.
The object of this basic standard is to establish the immunity requirements and a common reference for evaluating in a laboratory the performance of electrical and electronic equipment intended for residential, commercial and industrial application, as well as of equipment intended for electrical stations, as applicable.
The purpose of this standard is to define:
- test voltage and current waveforms;
- ranges of test levels;
- test equipment;
- test set-up;
- test procedure.
This standard does not intend to specify the tests to be applied to particular apparatus or systems. Its main aim is to give a general basic reference to all concerned product committees of the IEC. The product committees (or users and manufacturers of equipment) remain responsible for the appropriate choice of the tests and the severity level to be applied to their equipment.
In order to impede the task of coordination and standardization, the product committees or users and manufacturers are strongly recommended to consider (in their future work or revision of old standards) the adoption of the relevant immunity tests specified in this standard.
