NEMA ICS 61800-4
Adjustable Speed Electrical Power Drive Systems Part 4: General RequirementsRating Specifications for a.c. Power Drive Systems above 1000 V a.c. and Not Exceeding 35 kV
|Publication Date:||1 January 2004|
It applies to power drive systems (see figure 1) with converter voltages (line-to-line voltage), between 1 kV a.c. and 35 kV a.c., input side 50 Hz or 60 Hz, and load side frequencies up to 600 Hz. Requirements for voltages above 15 kV are not included and are defined by agreement between the manufacturer and the system supplier.
For power drive systems, with voltages above 1 kV, using a step-down input transformer and/or a step-up output transformer in connection with a low voltage converter (below 1 000 V), IEC 61800-2 applies. EMC aspects are covered in IEC 61800-3.
U.S. NOTE: EMC Immunity and Emission requirements of IEC 61800-3 are not applicable within the U.S. Specific safety requirements for drive systems with voltage above 1 kV will be covered in IEC 61800-5.
This standard gives the characteristics of the converters, their topologies and their relationship with the complete a.c. drive system. It also states their performance requirements with respect to ratings, normal operating conditions, overload conditions, surge withstand capabilities, stability, protection, a.c. line earthing, topologies and testing. Furthermore, it deals with application guidelines, such as control strategies, torsion analysis, recommendations for earthing and drive system component integration.
