Reciprocating internal combustion engine driven alternating current generating sets - Part 11: Rotary uninterruptible power systems - Performance requirements and test methods
|Publication Date:||1 March 2004|
|ICS Code (Rotating machinery):||29.160|
This International Standard, which forms part of the ISO 8528 series, specifies criteria, including performance and test methods, for rotary uninterruptible power systems (UPS) arising out of a combination of mechanical and electrical rotating machines. This standard applies to power supplies primarily designed for supplying uninterrupted a.c. power to the consumer. When operated without input mains feed, the power is provided by stored energy and/or reciprocating internal combustion (RIC) engine and the output power is provided by one or more rotating electrical machines.
This part 11 applies to a.c. power supplies primarily designed for supplying uninterruptible electrical power for stationary land and marine use, excluding supplies for aircraft, land vehicles or locomotives. It also excludes power supplies where the output power is generated by static converters. (See IEC 62040-3.)
The use of a rotary UPS installation to improve the quality of a.c. power supply, to provide voltage and/or frequency conversion, and to provide peak shaving is also described.
For some specific applications (for example, essential hospital supplies, offshore, non-stationary applications, high rise buildings, nuclear, etc.) supplementary requirements may be necessary. The provisions of this part of ISO 8528 should be used as a basis.
