Plugs, socket-outlets and ship couplers for high-voltage shore connection systems (HVSC-Systems) - Part 1: General requirements

The purpose of the IEC/ISO/IEEE 80005-1 is to define requirements that allow compliant ships to connect to compliant high-voltage shore power supplies through a compatible shore-to-ship connection. IEC 62613 has been written to address the needs of 80005-1 in terms of plugs, socket-outlets, ship connectors and ship inlets (herein referred to as "accessories") to deliver electrical power to ships in ports. IEC 62613 applies to accessories with - three phases and earth with pilot contacts, - one single pole for neutral. These accessories have rated currents not exceeding 500 A and rated operating voltages not exceeding 12 kV 50/60 Hz. These accessories are primarily intended for use outdoors, in a seawater environment, for the shore supply of ships (ship-to-shore connection), in an ambient temperature within the range of 25 °C to +45 °C. NOTE 1: In some countries, other ambient temperatures may prevail and may need to be taken into account. These accessories are not intended for use in hazardous areas. In such locations where special conditions prevail, additional requirements may be necessary. Part 1 of IEC 62613 contains the general requirements;

La CEI 62613-1:2011 s'applique aux appareils: - triphasés (3 pôles + Terre) avec jusqu'à 3 contacts pilotes, - unipolaires (Neutre). de courant nominal ne dépassant pas 500 A et de tension nominale d'emploi ne dépassant pas 12 kV 50/60 Hz.

Vtiči, vtičnice in ladijske spojke za visokonapetostne priključne sisteme na kopnem (HVSC-sistemi) - 1. del: Splošne zahteve

Namen standarda IEC/ISO/IEEE 80005-1 je določitev zahtev, ki skladnim ladjam omogoča, da se povežejo s skladnimi visokonapetostnimi viri napajanja prek združljivega priključnega sistema med ladjo in kopnim.
Standard IEC 62613 je bil oblikovan za obravnavo zahtev v skladu s standardom 80005-1, ki so povezane z vtiči, vtičnicami, ladijskimi priključki in ladijskimi dovodi (v nadaljnjem besedilu: »dodatki«), ki ladjam v pristaniščih dovajajo električno energijo.
Standard IEC 62613 se uporablja za dodatke, ki so:
– trifazni z ozemljitvijo in pilotnimi priključki;
– enopolno stikalo za nevtralni priključek.
Nazivni tok teh dodatkov ne presega 500 A in nazivna obratovalna napetost ne presega 12 kV, 50/60 Hz.
Ti dodatki so namenjeni predvsem za uporabo na prostem, v morski vodi, za oskrbo ladij (priključni sistem med ladjo in kopnim) pri temperaturi okolja od 25 °C do 45 °C.
OPOMBA 1: V nekaterih državah lahko prevladujejo druge temperature okolja, kar je treba upoštevati.
Ti dodatki niso namenjeni uporabi v nevarnih območjih. V območjih, kjer prevladujejo posebni pogoji, je treba upoštevati dodatne zahteve.

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.

INTRODUCTION

International Standard IEC 62613-1 has been primarily written to address the needs of the

IEC/PAS 60092-510 High Voltage Shore Connection Systems, in terms of plugs, socket-

outlets, ship connectors and ship inlets, herein referred to as “accessories”, to deliver

electrical power to ships in ports. The purpose of the IEC/PAS 60092-510 is to define

requirements that allow compliant ships to connect to compliant high-voltage shore power

supplies through a compatible shore-to-ship connection.

Ships that do not require connecting with standardized high-voltage shore power supplies as

above may use accessories that are not covered by the standard sheets of IEC 62613-2 but

they may find it impossible to connect to these shore supplies.

Other low voltage plugs, socket-outlets, ship connectors and ship inlets used for the

connection of certain ship types to low-voltage shore power supplies may be found in the

IEC 60309 series.
International Standard IEC 62613 is divided into several parts:
Part 1: General requirements, comprising clauses of a general character.

Part 2: Dimensional compatibility and interchangeability requirements for accessories used for

ship-to-shore connections, comprising standard sheets for different types of accessories.

These ships are described in IEC/PAS 60092-510.

Part 1: General requirements
1 Scope
This part of IEC 62613 applies to accessories with
• three phases (3 poles and Earth) with up to three pilot contacts,
• one single pole (Neutral).

These accessories have rated currents not exceeding 500 A and rated operating voltages not

exceeding 12 kV 50/60 Hz.
NOTE 1 In the USA, the term "Ground" is used instead of "Earth".

These accessories are primarily intended for use outdoors, in a seawater environment, for the

shore supply of ships (ship-to-shore connection), in an ambient temperature within the range

of -25 °C to +45 °C.

NOTE 2 In some countries, other ambient temperatures may prevail and may need to be taken into account.

These accessories are not intended for use in hazardous areas. In such locations where

special conditions prevail, additional requirements may be necessary.

These accessories are intended to be connected to cables of copper or copper alloy only.

Socket-outlets or ship inlets incorporated in or fixed to electrical equipment are within the

scope of this standard.

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.

INTRODUCTION

International Standard IEC 62613-1 has been primarily written to address the needs of the

IEC/PAS 60092-510 High Voltage Shore Connection Systems, in terms of plugs, socket-

outlets, ship connectors and ship inlets, herein referred to as “accessories”, to deliver

electrical power to ships in ports. The purpose of the IEC/PAS 60092-510 is to define

requirements that allow compliant ships to connect to compliant high-voltage shore power

supplies through a compatible shore-to-ship connection.

Ships that do not require connecting with standardized high-voltage shore power supplies as

above may use accessories that are not covered by the standard sheets of IEC 62613-2 but

they may find it impossible to connect to these shore supplies.

Other low voltage plugs, socket-outlets, ship connectors and ship inlets used for the

connection of certain ship types to low-voltage shore power supplies may be found in the

IEC 60309 series.
International Standard IEC 62613 is divided into several parts:
Part 1: General requirements, comprising clauses of a general character.

Part 2: Dimensional compatibility and interchangeability requirements for accessories used for

ship-to-shore connections, comprising standard sheets for different types of accessories.

These ships are described in IEC/PAS 60092-510.

Part 1: General requirements
1 Scope
This part of IEC 62613 applies to accessories with
• three phases (3 poles and Earth) with up to three pilot contacts,
• one single pole (Neutral).

These accessories have rated currents not exceeding 500 A and rated operating voltages not

exceeding 12 kV 50/60 Hz.
NOTE 1 In the USA, the term "Ground" is used instead of "Earth".

These accessories are primarily intended for use outdoors, in a seawater environment, for the

shore supply of ships (ship-to-shore connection), in an ambient temperature within the range

of -25 °C to +45 °C.

NOTE 2 In some countries, other ambient temperatures may prevail and may need to be taken into account.

These accessories are not intended for use in hazardous areas. In such locations where

special conditions prevail, additional requirements may be necessary.

These accessories are intended to be connected to cables of copper or copper alloy only.

Socket-outlets or ship inlets incorporated in or fixed to electrical equipment are within the

scope of this standard.
