Safety of transformers, reactors, power supply units and combinations thereof - Part 1: General requirements and tests

NEW!IEC 61558-1:2017 is available as IEC 61558-1:2017 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition. IEC 61558-1:2017 deals with safety aspects of transformers, reactors, power supply units and combinations thereof such as electrical, thermal and mechanical safety. This document covers the following independent or associated stationary or portable types of dry-type transformers, power supply units, including switch mode power supply units, reactors and combinations thereof in the field of safety. The windings can be encapsulated or non-encapsulated. They are not forming a part of the distribution network. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2005 and Amendment 1:2009. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a. fully insulated winding wires (FIW), new tables and aging tests for FIW constructions, b. overvoltage categories 1, 2, 3 and 4 for clearances and dielectric strength tests (new tables) are included, c. development of new symbols for the different overvoltage categories, d. symbol for maximum altitudes, if higher than 2 000 m, e. symbol for plug in power supply units, if the pins are damaged (tumbling barrel test), f. symbol for minimum temperature (even during the transportation), g. alternative temperature measurement, simulated load and back to back method according to IEC 60076-11, h. short circuit and overload protection, simulated load and back to back method according to IEC 60076-11, i. adjustment of temperatures in Table 2 according to CENELEC Guide 29, j. establishing partial discharge test above 750 V for FIW constructions, k. requirements for toroidal core constructions, division for basic and for supplementary isolation, l. modification of protection indexes for enclosures (IP-code), m. dimensioning of rectangular cross section connectors for transformers, n. repetition test, 80% of required dielectric strength test voltage of Table 14,a. o. vibration test for vehicles and railway applications, p. two Y1 Capacitors for working voltages above 250 V and not exceeding 500 V with overvoltage category 3. It has the status of a group safety publication in accordance with IEC Guide 104.

NEW!IEC 61558-1:2017 est disponible sous forme de IEC 61558-1:2017 RLV qui contient la Norme internationale et sa version Redline, illustrant les modifications du contenu technique depuis l'édition précédente. L'IEC 61558-1:2017 traite des aspects relatifs à la sécurité des transformateurs, bobines d’inductance, blocs d’alimentation et des combinaisons de ces éléments, tels que la sécurité électrique, la sécurité thermique et la sécurité mécanique. Le présent document couvre les transformateurs de type sec, les blocs d’alimentation, y compris les blocs d’alimentation à découpage, les bobines d’inductance et les combinaisons de ces éléments, de type indépendant ou associé, fixe ou mobile, dans le domaine de la sécurité. Les enroulements peuvent être enrobés ou non enrobés. Ils ne constituent pas une partie du réseau de distribution. Cette troisième édition annule et remplace la deuxième édition parue en 2005 et l’Amendement 1:2009. Cette édition constitue une révision technique. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l’édition précédente: a. fils de bobinage totalement isolés (FIW), nouveaux tableaux et essais de vieillissement pour les constructions avec fils FIW, b. les catégories de surtensions 1, 2, 3 et 4 pour les distances d’isolement et les essais de rigidité diélectrique (nouveaux tableaux) sont incluses, c. développement de nouveaux symboles pour les différentes catégories de surtensions, d. symbole pour les altitudes maximales, si elles sont supérieures à 2 000 m, e. symbole pour les blocs d’alimentation enfichables, si les broches sont endommagées (essai au tambour tournant), f. symbole pour la température minimale (même durant le transport), g. variante de mesure de la température, méthode de charge simulée et d’essai en opposition conformément à l’IEC 60076-11, h. protection contre les courts-circuits et les surcharges, méthode de charge simulée et d’essai en opposition conformément à l’IEC 60076-11, i. ajustement des températures dans le Tableau 2 conformément au Guide CENELEC 29, j. établissement de l’essai de décharge partielle au-dessus de 750 V pour les constructions avec fils FIW, k. exigences pour noyaux toroïdaux, division pour l’isolation principale et pour l’isolation supplémentaire, l. modification des indices de protection pour les enveloppes (code IP), m. dimensionnement des connecteurs de section rectangulaire pour transformateurs, n. essai de répétition, 80 % de la tension d’essai de rigidité diélectrique requise dans le Tableau 14, o. essai de vibrations pour les véhicules et les applications ferroviaires, p. deux condensateurs Y1 pour des tensions locales supérieures à 250 V et ne dépassant pas 500 V avec la catégorie de surtension 3. Elle a le statut d'une publication groupée de sécurité conformément au Guide IEC 104.

Annex ZZ
(informative)
Relationship between this European standard and the safety
objectives of Directive 2014/35/EU [2014 OJ L96] aimed to be
covered

This European Standard has been prepared under a Commission’s standardization request relating to

harmonized standards in the field of the Low Voltage Directive, M/511, to provide one voluntary means

of conforming to safety objectives of Directive 2014/35/EU of the European Parliament and of the

Council of 26 February 2014 on the harmonization of the laws of the Member States relating to the

making available on the market of electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits

[2014 OJ L96].

Once this standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Directive,

compliance with the normative clauses of this standard given in Table ZZ.1 confers, within the limits of

the scope of this standard, a presumption of conformity with the corresponding safety objectives of

that Directive, and associated EFTA regulations.

For other hazards not covered by IEC 61558-1 (e.g. EMF functional safety linked to electric, magnetic

and electromagnetic disturbances) the manufacturer has to perform a risk assessment.
