IEC 62040-3:2011 applies to movable, stationary and fixed electronic uninterruptible power systems (UPS) that deliver single or three phase fixed frequency a.c. output voltage not exceeding 1 000 V a.c. and that incorporate an energy storage system, generally connected through a d.c. link. This standard is intended to specify performance and test requirements of a complete UPS and not of individual UPS functional units. The individual UPS functional units are dealt with in IEC publications referred to in the bibliography that apply so far that they are not in contradiction with this standard. The primary function of the UPS covered by this standard is to ensure continuity of an a.c. power source. The UPS may also serve to improve the quality of the power source by keeping it within specified characteristics. UPS have been developed over a wide range of power, from less than hundred watts to several megawatts, to meet requirements for availability and quality of power to a variety of loads. Refer to Annexes A and B for information on typical UPS configurations and topologies. This standard also covers UPS test and performance when power switches form integral part of a UPS and are associated with its output. Included are interrupters, bypass switches, isolating switches, and tie switches. These switches interact with other functional units of the UPS to maintain continuity of load power. This standard does not cover:
- conventional a.c. input and output distribution boards or d.c. boards and their associated switches (e.g. switches for batteries, rectifier output or inverter input);
- stand-alone static transfer systems covered by IEC 62310-3;
- systems wherein the output voltage is derived from a rotating machine.
NOTE 1  This standard recognises that power availability to information technology (IT) equipment represents a major UPS application. The UPS output characteristics specified in this standard are therefore also aimed at ensuring compatibility with the requirements of IT equipment. This, subject any limitation stated in the manufacturer's declaration, includes requirements for steady state and transient voltage variation as well as for the supply of both linear and non-linear load characteristics of IT equipment.
NOTE 2  Test loads specified in this standard simulate both linear and non-linear load characteristics. Their use is prescribed with the objective of verifying design and performance, as declared by the manufacturer, and also of minimising any complexity and energy consumption during the tests.
NOTE 3  This standard is aimed at 50 Hz and 60 Hz applications but does not exclude other frequency applications within the domain of IEC 60196. This is subject to an agreement between manufacturer and purchase in respect to any particular requirements arising.
NOTE 4  Single phase and three-phase voltage UPS covered by this standard include without limitation UPS supplying single-phase, two-wire; single-phase, three-wire; two-phase, three-wire, three-phase, three-wire and three-phase, four-wire loads.
This second edition cancels and replaces first edition published in 1999 and constitutes a technical revision. The significant technical changes are:
- reference test load - definition and application revised (3.3.5 and 6.1.1.3);
- test schedule - presented as a single table grouped by revised type and routine tests (see 6.1.6, Table 3);
- dynamic output voltage performance characteristics - guidance to measure - addition (Annex H);

This document applies to all line-commutated high-voltage direct current (HVDC) converter
stations used for power exchange (power transmission or back-to-back installation) in utility
systems. This document presumes the use of 12-pulse thyristor converters but can, with due
care, also be used for 6-pulse thyristor converters.
In some applications, synchronous compensators or static var compensators (SVC) may be
connected to the AC bus of the HVDC converter station. The loss determination procedures
for such equipment are not included in this document.
This document presents a set of standard procedures for determining the total losses of an
HVDC converter station. The procedures cover all parts, except as noted above, and address
no-load operation and operating losses together with their methods of calculation which use,
wherever possible, measured parameters.
Converter station designs employing novel components or circuit configurations compared to
the typical design assumed in this document, or designs equipped with unusual auxiliary
circuits that could affect the losses, are assessed on their own merits.

This part of IEC 62751 gives the detailed method to be adopted for calculating the power
losses in the valves for an HVDC system based on the “modular multi-level converter”, where
each valve in the converter consists of a number of self-contained, two-terminal controllable
voltage sources connected in series. It is applicable both for the cases where each modular
cell uses only a single turn-off semiconductor device in each switch position, and the case
where each switch position consists of a number of turn-off semiconductor devices in series
(topology also referred to as “cascaded two-level converter”). The main formulae are given for
the two-level “half-bridge” configuration but guidance is also given in Annex A as to how to

This Standard defines terms for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) power transmission systems and for HVDC substations using electronic power converters for the conversion from AC to DC or vice versa. This document is applicable to HVDC substations with line commutated converters, most commonly based on three-phase bridge (double way) connections (see Figure 2) in which unidirectional electronic valves, for example semiconductor valves, are used. For the thyristor valves, only the most important definitions are included in this document. A more comprehensive list of HVDC valve terminology is given in IEC 60700-2.

This standard applies to movable, stationary, fixed or built-in UPS for use in lowvoltage distribution systems and that are intended to be installed in an area accessible by an ordinary person or in a restricted access area as applicable, that deliver fixed frequency AC output voltage with port voltages not exceeding 1000 V AC or 1500 V DC and that include an energy storage device. It applies to pluggable and to permanently connected UPS, whether consisting of a system of interconnected units or of independent units, subject to installing, operating and maintaining the UPS in the manner prescribed by the manufacturer. Alternative devices exist, and as such, where "battery" appears in the text of this document, this is to be understood as "energy storage device". This document specifies requirements to ensure safety for the ordinary person who comes into contact with the UPS and, where specifically stated, for the skilled person. The objective is to reduce risks of fire, electric shock, thermal, energy and mechanical hazards during use and operation and, where specifically stated, during service and maintenance. This product standard is harmonized with the applicable parts of group safety publication IEC 62477-1:2012 for power electronic converter systems and contains additional requirements relevant to UPS. This document does not cover: - UPS that have a DC output; - systems for operation on moving platforms including, but not limited to, aircrafts, ships and motor vehicles; - external AC or DC input and output distribution boards covered by their specific product standard; - stand-alone static transfer systems (STS) covered by IEC 62310-1; - systems wherein the output voltage is directly derived from a rotating machine; - telecommunications apparatus other than UPS for such apparatus; - functional safety aspects covered by IEC 61508 (all parts).

This part of IEC 62751 gives the detailed method to be adopted for calculating the power
losses in the valves for an HVDC system based on the “modular multi-level converter”, where
each valve in the converter consists of a number of self-contained, two-terminal controllable
voltage sources connected in series. It is applicable both for the cases where each modular
cell uses only a single turn-off semiconductor device in each switch position, and the case
where each switch position consists of a number of turn-off semiconductor devices in series
(topology also referred to as “cascaded two-level converter”). The main formulae are given for
the two-level “half-bridge” configuration but guidance is also given in Annex A as to how to
extend the results to certain other types of MMC building block configuration.
The standard is written mainly for insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) but may also be
