IEC 60099-6: 2019 applies to non-linear metal-oxide resistor type surge arresters with spark gaps designed to limit voltage surges on AC power circuits with system voltages Us above 1 kV up to and including 52 kV. This document basically applies to all metal-oxide distribution class surge arresters with internal series and/or parallel gaps and housed in either porcelain or polymeric housings. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2002. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) A new concept of arrester classification and energy withstand testing was introduced: the line discharge classification was replaced by a classification based on repetitive charge transfer rating (Qrs) and thermal charge transfer rating (Qth). The new concept clearly differentiates between impulse and thermal energy handling capability, which is reflected in the requirements as well as in the related test procedures.
b) Power-frequency voltage versus time tests – with and without prior duty – were introduced as type tests.
c) Requirements and tests on disconnectors were added.
d) Definitions for new terms have been added.
e) Clause 10 contains particular requirements for polymer-housed surge arresters. These are indicated in the form of replacements, additions or amendments to the original clauses or subclauses concerned.

This part of IEC 60099 provides information, guidance, and recommendations for the
selection and application of surge arresters to be used in three-phase systems with nominal
voltages above 1 kV. It applies to gapless metal-oxide surge arresters as defined in
IEC 60099-4, to surge arresters containing both series and parallel gapped structure – rated
52 kV and less as defined in IEC 60099-6 and metal-oxide surge arresters with external series
gap for overhead transmission and distribution lines (EGLA) as defined in IEC 60099-8. In
Annex J, some aspects regarding the old type of SiC gapped arresters are discussed.
Surge arrester residual voltage is a major parameter to which most users have paid a lot of
attention to when selecting the type and rating. Typical maximum residual voltages are given
in Annex F. It is likely, however, that for some systems, or in some countries, the
requirements on system reliability and design are sufficiently uniform, so that the
recommendations of the present standard may lead to the definition of narrow ranges of
arresters. The user of surge arresters will, in that case, not be required to apply the whole
process introduced here to any new installation and the selection of characteristics resulting
from prior practice may be continued.
Annexes H and I present comparisons and calculations between old line discharge
classification and new charge classification.

This part of IEC 60099 covers metal-oxide surge arresters with external series gap (externally
gapped line arresters (EGLA)) that are applied on overhead transmission and distribution
lines, only to protect insulator assemblies from lightning-caused flashovers.
This document defines surge arresters to protect the insulator assembly from lightning-caused
over-voltages only. Therefore, and since metal-oxide resistors are not permanently connected
to the line, the following items are not considered for this document:
• switching impulse spark-over voltage;
• residual voltage at steep current and switching current impulse;
• thermal stability;
• long-duration current impulse withstand duty;
• power-frequency voltage versus time characteristics of an arrester;
• disconnector test;
• aging duties by power-frequency voltage.
Considering the particular design concept and the special application on overhead
transmission and distribution lines, some unique requirements and tests are introduced, such
as the verification test for coordination between insulator withstand and EGLA protective
level, the follow current interrupting test, mechanical load tests, etc.
Designs with the EGLA's external series gap installed in parallel to an insulator are not

The standard applies in general to porcelain-housed and polymer-housed type arresters but also to gas-insulated metal enclosed arresters (GIS-arresters) solely used as d.c. bus and d.c. line/cable arresters. Arresters for voltage source converters are not covered. Arresters applied on the a.c. systems at the converter station and subjected to power-frequency voltage of 50 or 60 Hz principally without harmonics are tested as per IEC 60099-4. The arresters on a.c.-filters are tested according to this standard. Keywords: testing of gapless metal-oxide surge arrestors for HVDC converter stations

This part of IEC 61643 is applicable to gas discharge tubes (GDT) used for overvoltage protection in telecommunications, signalling and low-voltage power distribution networks with nominal system voltages up to 1 000 V (r.m.s.) a.c. and 1 500 V d.c..They are defined as a gap, or several gaps with two or three metal electrodes hermetically sealed so that gas mixture and pressure are under control. They are designed to protect apparatus or personnel, or both, from high transient voltages. This standard contains a series of test criteria, test methods and test circuits for determining the electrical characteristics of GDTs having two or three electrodes. This standard does not specify requirements applicable to complete surge protective devices, nor does it specify total requirements for GDTs employed within electronic devices, where precise coordination between GDT performance and surge protective device withstand capability is highly critical. This part of IEC 61643 - does not deal with mountings and their effect on GDT characteristics. Characteristics given apply solely to GDTs mounted in the ways described for the tests; - does not deal with mechanical dimensions; - does not deal with quality assurance requirements; - may not be sufficient for GDTs used on high-frequency (>30 MHz); - does not deal with electrostatic voltages; - does not deal with hybrid overvoltage protection components or composite GDT devices.

IEC 61643-11:2011 is applicable to devices for surge protection against indirect and direct effects of lightning or other transient overvoltages. These devices are packaged to be connected to 50/60 Hz a.c. power circuits, and equipment rated up to 1 000 V r.m.s. Performance characteristics, standard methods for testing and ratings are established. These devices contain at least one nonlinear component and are intended to limit surge voltages and divert surge currents. This first edition of IEC 61643-11 cancels and replaces the second edition of IEC 61643-1 published in 2005. The main changes with respect of the second edition of IEC 61643-1 are the complete restructuring and improvement of the test procedures and test sequences. NOTE: The attention of National Committees is drawn to the fact that equipment manufacturers and testing organizations may need a transitional period following publication of a new, amended or revised IEC publication in which to make products in accordance with the new requirements and to equip themselves for conducting new or revised tests. It is the recommendation of the committee that the content of this publication be adopted for national implementation not earlier than 12 months from the date of publication. In the meantime, the previous edition can still be ordered by contacting your local IEC member National Committee or the IEC Central Office.
