Adjustable speed electrical power drive systems - Part 3: EMC requirements and specific test methods

specifies electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements for power drive systems (PDSs). A PDS is defined in 3.1. These are adjustable speed a.c. or d.c. motor drives. Requirements are stated for PDSs with converter input and/or output voltages (line-to-line voltage), up to 35 kV a.c. r.m.s.

Drehzahlveränderbare elektrische Antriebe - Teil 3: EMV-Anforderungen einschließlich spezieller Prüfverfahren

Entraînements électriques de puissance à vitesse variable - Partie 3: Exigences de CEM et méthodes d'essais spécifiques

spécifie les prescriptions de compatibilité électromagnétique (CEM) applicables aux entraînements de puissance (PDS). Le PDS est défini en 3.1. Il s'agit d'entraînements à vitesse variable pour moteurs électriques à courant alternatif ou continu. Cette norme spécifie les exigences afférentes aux PDS avec convertisseurs ayant des tensions d'entrée et/ou sortie (tensions entre phases), de valeur efficace allant jusqu'à 35 kV en alternatif.

Električni pogonski sistemi z nastavljivo hitrostjo - 3. del: Zahteve za elektromagnetno združljivost in posebne preskusne metode (IEC 61800-3:2004)

Standard določa zahteve za elektromagnetno združljivost za pogonske sisteme. Pogonski sistem je opredeljen v točki 3.1. Pogonski sistemi so motorni pogoni z enosmerno ali izmenično napetostjo z nastavljivo hitrostjo. Zahteve so določene za pogonske sisteme s pretvornimi vhodnimi in/ali izhodnimi napetostmi (medlinijska napetost), do 35 kV izmenične napetosti efektivne vrednosti. Tri glavne spremembe so: a) distribucijske razrede pogonskih sistemov so nadomestile kategorije pogonskih sistemov (C1 do C4), pri čemer so opredelitve povezane s samim proizvodom in njegovo nameravano uporabo, b) boljša pokritost mejnih vrednosti emisij, c) za kategorijo C4 je posplošen načrt v zvezi z elektromagnetno združljivostjo.

This European Standard was approved by CENELEC on 2004-10-01. CENELEC members are bound to
comply with the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations which stipulate the conditions for giving this European
Standard the status of a national standard without any alteration.

Up-to-date lists and bibliographical references concerning such national standards may be obtained on
application to the Central Secretariat or to any CENELEC member.

This European Standard exists in three official versions (English, French, German). A version in any other
language made by translation under the responsibility of a CENELEC member into its own language and
notified to the Central Secretariat has the same status as the official versions.

CENELEC members are the national electrotechnical committees of Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech
Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia,
Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden,

The text of document 22G/127/FDIS, future edition 2 of IEC 61800-3, prepared by SC 22G, Adjustable
speed electric drive systems incorporating semiconductor power converters, of IEC TC 22, Power
electronic systems and equipment, was submitted to the IEC-CENELEC parallel vote and was
approved by CENELEC as EN 61800-3 on 2004-10-01.
This European Standard supersedes EN 61800-3:1996 + A11:2000 + corrigendum May 2001.
This European Standard introduces three main changes:
a) the classes of distribution (unrestricted and restricted) of the PDS have been replaced by
categories of PDS (C1 to C4) with definitions related to the product itself and its intended use;
b) better coverage of emission limits;
c) an EMC plan is generalized for category C4.
The following dates were fixed:
– latest date by which the EN has to be implemented
at national level by publication of an identical
national standard or by endorsement (dop) 2005-07-01
– latest date by which the national standards conflicting
with the EN have to be withdrawn (dow) 2007-10-01
This European Standard has been prepared under a mandate given to CENELEC by the European
Commission and the European Free Trade Association and covers essential requirements of Directive
89/336/EEC. See Annex ZZ.
Annexes ZA and ZZ have been added by CENELEC.
