Industrial electroheating equipment - Test methods for submerged-arc furnaces

This International Standard specifies test procedures, conditions and methods according to which the main parameters and the main operational characteristics of a submerged-arc furnace (SAF) with rated electrical power levels above 500 kVA are established. This standard is applicable to SAF with one or more electrodes. In order to determine further technical or economic assessments, additional tests may be necessary. Tests for some special equipment for semiconductor converter controlled furnaces, such as controlled rectifiers or controlled a.c. converters, are covered by IEC 60146-1-1.

Chauffage électrique industriel - Méthodes d'essai des fours à arc submergé

1117481 La CEI 60683:2011 spécifie les procédures, les conditions et les méthodes d'essai selon lesquelles les paramètres principaux et les caractéristiques de fonctionnement principales des fours à arc submergé dont les niveaux de puissance électrique assignée sont supérieurs à 500 kVA sont établis. La présente norme est applicable aux fours à arc submergé à une ou plusieurs électrodes. Afin de déterminer d'autres évaluations techniques ou économiques, des essais supplémentaires peuvent être nécessaires. Les essais pour des équipements spéciaux des fours commandés par convertisseur à semiconducteurs, tels que les redresseurs commandés ou les convertisseurs à courant alternatif commandés, sont couverts par la CEI 60146-1-1. Cette deuxième édition annule et remplace l'édition précédente parue en 1980, dont elle constitue une révision technique. Les modifications techniques importantes par rapport à l'édition précédente sont les suivantes: - Article 1 (Domaine d'application et objet) - les types de fours couverts par la présente norme sont définis plus clairement. - L'Article 2 (Références normatives) et l'Article 3 (Termes et définitions) ont été mis à jour et complétés. - Un nouvel Article 4 (Caractéristiques du système de four à arc submergé) a été ajouté; il traite principalement des essais nécessaires pour les équipements électriques à haute tension/haute intensité de l'installation. - L'Article 5 (Essais et conditions générales) et l'Article 6 (Essais techniques) ont été modifiés en fonction des exigences actuelles pour l'utilisation d'un four à arc submergé en toute sécurité.",PE

Oprema za industrijsko električno ogrevanje - Preskusne metode za peči z zakritim oblokom

Ta mednarodni standard določa preskusne postopke, pogoje in metode, po katerih so vzpostavljeni glavni parametri in glavne značilnosti delovanja peči z zakritim oblokom (SAF) z ravnmi nazivne električne moči nad 500 kVA. Ta standard se uporablja za peči z zakritim oblokom z eno elektrodo ali več. Za določanje dodatnih tehničnih ali ekonomskih ocen so morda potrebni dodatni preskusi. Preskusi za nekatero posebno opremo za peči, ki se nadzorujejo s polprevodnimi pretvorniki, na primer z nadzorovanimi usmerniki ali nadzorovanimi izmeničnimi pretvorniki, so zajeti v standardu IEC 60146-1-1.
