Instrument transformers - Part 14: Additional requirements for current transformers for DC applications

IEC 61869-14:2018 provides all requirements specific to current transformers to be used in DC applications (DCCTs), whatever the technology used. The output signal can be analogue or digital. It is applicable to newly manufactured current transformers used for measuring, protection and/or control applications in DC power systems with a rated voltage above 1,5 kV. The general configuration of a single-pole low-power instrument transformer is described in Figure 601 of IEC 61869-6:2016. The DCCTs intended for current measurement in the transistor branch of the VSC valve (referred to as CT4a and CT4b in Figure 1403 and Table 1402) are not covered by this document, and will be considered in a future revision. IEC 61869-14:2018 applies to current transformers intended to be used in DC applications with at least one of the following functions: • measure DC current (with significant harmonics); • withstand DC voltage. Depending on the position on the DC system, different kinds of application exist, which are briefly described below, together with the approximate voltage or current wave shape.

Transformateurs de mesure - Partie 14: Exigences supplémentaires concernant les transformateurs de courant pour application en courant continu

IEC 61869-14:2018 couvre toutes les exigences particulières concernant les transformateurs de courant utilisés dans les applications en courant continu (DCCTs), quelle que soit la technologie utilisée. Le signal de sortie peut être analogique ou numérique. Elle s'applique aux transformateurs de courant fabriqués récemment et utilisés pour des applications de mesure, de protection et/ou de commande sur des systèmes d'alimentation électrique en courant continu dont la tension assignée est supérieure à 1,5 kV. La configuration générale d'un transformateur de mesure de faible puissance unipolaire est décrite à la Figure 601 de l'IEC 61869-6:2016. Les transformateurs de courant continu destinés aux mesures de courant dans la branche du transistor de la valve VSC (dénommés CT4a et CT4b à la Figure 1403 et au Tableau 1402) ne sont pas couverts par le présent document et seront traités lors d'une prochaine révision. IEC 61869-14:2018 s'applique aux transformateurs de courant destinés à être utilisés dans les applications en courant continu avec l'une des fonctions suivantes au moins:<br /> • mesurage du courant continu (avec des harmoniques élevées); • tension continue de tenue. Selon la position du système à courant continu, différents types d'applications existent. Ils sont décrits brièvement ci-dessous, ainsi que la tension approximative ou la forme d'onde du courant.

Instrumentni transformatorji - 14. del: Dodatne zahteve za tokovne transformatorje za enosmerno napajanje (IEC 61869-14:2018)

Ta del standarda IEC 61869 podaja vse zahteve, specifične za tokovne transformatorje, ki se uporabljajo pri enosmernem toku (DCCT-je), ne glede na uporabljeno tehnologijo. Izhodni signal je lahko analogni ali digitalni.
Uporablja se za nove tokovne transformatorje, ki se uporabljajo za merjenje, zaščito in/ali nadzor v omrežjih enosmernega toka z nazivno napetostjo nad 1,5 kV.
Splošna konfiguracija enopolnega nizkonapetostnega merilnega transformatorja je opisana na sliki 601 standarda IEC 61869-6:2016.
DCCT-ji, ki so namenjeni merjenju toka v tranzistorski veji ventila VSC (imenovani tudi CT4a in CT4b na sliki 1403 in v preglednici 1402), v tem dokumentu niso zajeti in bodo upoštevani v prihodnji reviziji.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 61869-14 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 38:

Instrument transformers.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
38/560/FDIS 38/565/RVD

INTRODUCTION
General

This document applies to current transformers intended to be used in DC applications with at

least one of the following functions:
• measure DC current (with significant harmonics);
• withstand DC voltage.

Depending on the position of the current transformer on the DC system, different kinds of

application exist, which are briefly described below, together with the approximate voltage or

current wave shape.
Line-commutated converters (LCC)

Line-commutated converters (LCC) are based on thyristor converters (see Figure 1401). They

are characterized by a single direction of current flow, and a voltage polarity reversal

possibility. Significant voltage and current harmonics exist up to frequencies of about 3 kHz to

4 kHz.
Figure 1401 – Example of LCC scheme
We distinguish three different current-measurement functions:
• CT1: measurement of the current at the AC side of the converter;
• CT2: measurement of the current at the DC side of the converter;
• CT3: measurement of the current in the DC filter.

Table 1401 gives an overview of the current and voltage waveshapes as well as the main

characteristics of the different applications of the CT.

Voltage-source converters (VSC)

Voltage-source converters (VSC) are based on transistor converters. They are characterized

by a bi-directional current flow and a single voltage polarity. Voltage and current harmonics

exist up to frequencies of about 20 kHz.

Two variants of VSC schemes exist: symmetrical monopoles (using one single converter) and

asymmetrical monopole or bipole (with one converter for each polarity).
Both schemes are shown in Figure 1402 and Figure 1403.

We distinguish three different current-measurement functions:
• CT4: measurement of the current in the transistor branches of the converter.
The CT can be placed before (CT4a) or after the transistor branch (CT4b);
• CT2: measurement of the current at the DC side of the converter;

• CT3: measurement of the current in the DC filter (not always present in this scheme).

Table 1402 gives an overview of the current and voltage waveshapes as well as the main

characteristics of the different applications of the CT.

INSTRUMENT TRANSFORMERS –
Part 14: Additional requirements for current
transformers for DC applications
1 Scope

This part of IEC 61869 provides all requirements specific to current transformers to be used in

DC applications (DCCTs), whatever the technology used. The output signal can be analogue

or digital.

It is applicable to newly manufactured current transformers used for measuring, protection

and/or control applications in DC power systems with a rated voltage above 1,5 kV.

The general configuration of a single-pole low-power instrument transformer is described in

Figure 601 of IEC 61869-6:2016.

The DCCTs intended for current measurement in the transistor branch of the VSC valve

(referred to as CT4a and CT4b in Figure 1403 and Table 1402) are not covered by this

document, and will be considered in a future revision.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 61869-14 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 38:

Instrument transformers.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
38/560/FDIS 38/565/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this International Standard can be found in

INTRODUCTION
General

This document applies to current transformers intended to be used in DC applications with at

least one of the following functions:
• measure DC current (with significant harmonics);
• withstand DC voltage.

Depending on the position of the current transformer on the DC system, different kinds of

application exist, which are briefly described below, together with the approximate voltage or

current wave shape.
Line-commutated converters (LCC)

Line-commutated converters (LCC) are based on thyristor converters (see Figure 1401). They

are characterized by a single direction of current flow, and a voltage polarity reversal

possibility. Significant voltage and current harmonics exist up to frequencies of about 3 kHz to

4 kHz.
Figure 1401 – Example of LCC scheme
We distinguish three different current-measurement functions:
• CT1: measurement of the current at the AC side of the converter;
• CT2: measurement of the current at the DC side of the converter;
• CT3: measurement of the current in the DC filter.

Table 1401 gives an overview of the current and voltage waveshapes as well as the main

characteristics of the different applications of the CT.

Voltage-source converters (VSC)

Voltage-source converters (VSC) are based on transistor converters. They are characterized

by a bi-directional current flow and a single voltage polarity. Voltage and current harmonics

exist up to frequencies of about 20 kHz.

Two variants of VSC schemes exist: symmetrical monopoles (using one single converter) and

asymmetrical monopole or bipole (with one converter for each polarity).
Both schemes are shown in Figure 1402 and Figure 1403.

The CT can be placed before (CT4a) or after the transistor branch (CT4b);
• CT2: measurement of the current at the DC side of the converter;

• CT3: measurement of the current in the DC filter (not always present in this scheme).

Table 1402 gives an overview of the current and voltage waveshapes as well as the main

characteristics of the different applications of the CT.

INSTRUMENT TRANSFORMERS –
Part 14: Additional requirements for current
transformers for DC applications
1 Scope

This part of IEC 61869 provides all requirements specific to current transformers to be used in

DC applications (DCCTs), whatever the technology used. The output signal can be analogue

or digital.

It is applicable to newly manufactured current transformers used for measuring, protection

and/or control applications in DC power systems with a rated voltage above 1,5 kV.

The general configuration of a single-pole low-power instrument transformer is described in

Figure 601 of IEC 61869-6:2016.

The DCCTs intended for current measurement in the transistor branch of the VSC valve

(referred to as CT4a and CT4b in Figure 1403 and Table 1402) are not covered by this

document, and will be considered in a future revision.

3.4 Definitions related to accuracy
3.4.1401
Absolute error

error (expressed in A) that a current transformer introduces into the measurement and which

arises from the fact that the actual transformation ratio is not equal to the rated transformation

ratio
Note 1 to entry: The absolute error is defined by the following formula:
ε = K ⋅ U – I
A r s p
where
K is the rated transformation ratio;
I is the DC value of the actual primary current in steady state;
U is the DC value of the output voltage.

step response

duration between the instant when the measurand (or quantity supplied) is subjected to a

specified abrupt change and the instant when the indication (or quantity supplied) reaches,

and remains within specified limits of, its final steady-state value
Note 1 to entry: See graphical explanation in Figure 1404.

3.5.1402
step response time

for a step response, the duration of the time interval between the instant of the step change of

an input variable and the instant when the output variable reaches for the first time a specified

percentage of the difference between the final and the initial steady-state values

Note 1 to entry: The step response time includes the delay time of the current transformer.
