Safety of transformers, reactors, power supply units and combinations thereof - Part 2-23: Particular requirements and tests for transformers and power supply units for construction sites (IEC 61558-2-23:2010)

This part of IEC 61558 deals with the safety of transformers for construction sites and power supply units incorporating transformers for construction sites. Transformers incorporating electronic circuits are also covered by this standard. Unless otherwise specified, from here onward, the term transformer covers transformers for construction sites and power supply units incorporating transformers for construction sites. This part is applicable to stationary or portable, single-phase or polyphase, air-cooled (natural or forced) independent or associated transformers, being isolating or safety isolating drytype transformers for the use on construction sites. The windings may be encapsulated or non-encapsulated. The rated supply voltage does not exceed 1 000 V a.c., and the rated supply frequency and the internal operating frequencies do not exceed 500 Hz. This standard used in combination with Part 2-16 for Switch mode power supply units (SMPS) is also applicable to power supplies with internal operating frequencies higher than 500 Hz. Where the two requirements are in conflict the most severe take precedence The rated output does not exceed: - 25 kVA for single-phase transformers; - 40 kVA for poly-phase transformers. This part is applicable to transformers without limitation of the rated output subject to an agreement between the purchaser and the manufacturer. Isolating transformers and power supply units incorporating isolating transformers for construction sites have a no-load output voltage and a rated output voltage exceeding 50 V a.c. and not exceeding 250 V a.c. Safety isolating transformers and power supply units incorporating safety isolating transformers for construction sites have a no-load output voltage and a rated output voltage not exceeding 50 V a.c. Transformers and power supply units covered by this part are used in applications where it is required by the installation rules or by the appliance specification for protection purposes. When the transformers or power supply units are incorporated into low voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies for construction sites as specified in IEC 60439-4, the additional requirements of IEC 60439-4 will apply to the assembly.

La présente partie a le statut de publication groupée de sécurité conformément au Guide CEI 104: Élaboration des publications de sécurité et utilisation des publications fondamentales de sécurité et publications groupées de sécurité. L'attention des Comités Nationaux est attirée sur le fait que les fabricants des appareils et les organismes d'essai peuvent avoir besoin d'une période transitoire, à la parution d'une publication CEI qu'elle soit nouvelle, modifiée ou révisée, pour mettre les produits en conformité avec les nouvelles exigences et pour s'équiper eux-mêmes afin de réaliser de nouveaux essais ou des essais révisés. Le comité recommande que le contenu de la présente publication soit adopté pour mise en oeuvre au niveau national au plus tôt 12 mois après la date de publication. Pendant ce temps, l'édition précédente peut toujours être commandée auprès du Comité National CEI de votre pays ou auprès du bureau Central de la CEI.

Varnost transformatorjev, dušilk, napajalnikov in kombinacij teh elementov - 2-23. del: Posebne zahteve in preskusi za transformatorje in napajalnike za gradbišča (IEC 61558-2-23:2010)

Ta del IEC 61558 obravnava varnost transformatorjev za gradbišča in napajalnikov, ki vsebujejo transformatorje, za gradbišča. Transformatorji, ki vsebujejo elektronska vezja, so prav tako zajeti v tem standardu. Razen če je drugače navedeno, v nadaljevanju izraz transformator zajema  transformatorje za gradbišča in napajalnike, ki vsebujejo transformatorje za gradbišča. Ta del velja za nepremične ali prenosne, enofazne ali večfazne, zračno hlajene (naravno ali vsiljeno), samostojne ali povezane transformatorje, ki so ločilni ali varnostno ločilni transformatorji suhega tipa za uporabo na gradbiščih. Navitje je lahko inkapsulirano ali nekapsulirano. Nazivna napetost napajanja ne presega 1.000 V izmeničnega toka in nazivna frekvenca napajanja in notranja obratovalna frekvenca ne presega 500 Hz. Ta standard v kombinaciji z delom 2-16 za stikalni napajalnik (SMPS) velja tudi za napajalnike z notranjimi obratovalnimi frekvencami, višjimi od 500 Hz. Če sta zahtevi v nasprotju, ima prednost najstrožja. Nazivni izhod ne presega: - 25 kVA za enofazne transformatorje; - 40 kVA za večfazne transformatorje. Ta del velja za transformatorje brez omejitve nazivnega izhoda, ki je predmet dogovora med kupcem in proizvajalcem. Ločilni transformatorji in napajalniki, ki vsebujejo ločilne transformatorje za gradbišča, imajo izhodno napetost v prostem teku in nazivno izhodno napetost, ki presega 50 V izmeničnega toka in ne presega 250 V izmeničnega toka. Varnostni ločilni transformatorji in napajalniki, ki vsebujejo varnostne ločilne transformatorje, za gradbišča, imajo izhodno napetost v prostem teku in nazivno izhodno napetost, ki ne presega 50 V izmeničnega toka. Transformatorji in napajalniki, ki jih zajema ta del, se uporabljajo v napravah, kjer to zahtevajo pravila za namestitev ali specifikacije naprave, z namenom zaščite. Kadar so transformatorji ali napajalniki vgrajeni v nizkonapetostne stikalne in krmilne naprave za gradbišča, kot je opredeljeno v IEC 60439-4, se za sklop uporabljajo dodatne zahteve IEC 60439-4.

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 61558-2-23 has been prepared by IEC Technical Committee 96:

Transformers, reactors, power supply units, and combinations thereof.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2000. It constitutes a

technical revision. The main changes consist of updating this Part 2-23 in accordance with

IEC 61558-1:2005.

This part has the status of a group safety publication in accordance with IEC Guide 104: The

preparation of safety publications and the use of basic safety publications and group safety

publications.

SAFETY OF TRANSFORMERS, REACTORS,
POWER SUPPLY UNITS AND COMBINATIONS THEREOF –
Part 2-23: Particular requirements and tests for transformers
and power supply units for construction sites
1 Scope
Replacement:

This part of IEC 61558 deals with the safety of transformers for construction sites and

power supply units incorporating transformers for construction sites. Transformers

incorporating electronic circuits are also covered by this standard.
NOTE 1 Safety includes electrical, thermal and mechanical aspects.

Unless otherwise specified, from here onward, the term transformer covers transformers for

construction sites and power supply units incorporating transformers for construction

sites.

This part is applicable to stationary or portable, single-phase or polyphase, air-cooled (natural

or forced) independent or associated transformers, being isolating or safety isolating dry-

type transformers for the use on construction sites. The windings may be encapsulated or

non-encapsulated.

The rated supply voltage does not exceed 1 000 V a.c., and the rated supply frequency and

the internal operating frequencies do not exceed 500 Hz.

This standard used in combination with Part 2-16 for Switch mode power supply units

(SMPS) is also applicable to power supplies with internal operating frequencies higher than

500 Hz. Where the two requirements are in conflict the most severe take precedence

The rated output does not exceed:
– 25 kVA for single-phase transformers;
– 40 kVA for poly-phase transformers.

This part is applicable to transformers without limitation of the rated output subject to an

agreement between the purchaser and the manufacturer.

NOTE 2 Transformers intended to supply distribution networks are not included in the scope.

Isolating transformers and power supply units incorporating isolating transformers for

construction sites have a no-load output voltage and a rated output voltage exceeding 50

V a.c. and not exceeding 250 V a.c.

Safety isolating transformers and power supply units incorporating safety isolating

transformers for construction sites have a no-load output voltage and a rated output

voltage not exceeding 50 V a.c.

NOTE 3 This standard is applicable to transformers for the supply of electricity in locations as specified in

IEC 60364-7-704. The latter also specifies the protection by using an earthed midpoint or starpoint of the output

winding.
---------------------- Page: 11 ----------------------
SIST EN 61558-2-23:2010
– 6 – 61558-2-23 © IEC:2010

Transformers and power supply units covered by this part are used in applications where it

is required by the installation rules or by the appliance specification for protection purposes.

When the transformers or power supply units are incorporated into low voltage switchgear

and controlgear assemblies for construction sites as specified in IEC 60439-4, the

additional requirements of IEC 60439-4 will apply to the assembly.

NOTE 4 For transformers filled with liquid dielectric or pulverised material, such as sand, additional requirements

are under consideration.
NOTE 5 Attention is drawn to the following:

– measures to protect the enclosure and the components inside the enclosure against external influences

like fungus, vermin, termites, solar-radiation and icing should also be considered;

– the different conditions for transportation, storage, and operation of the transformers and power supply

units should also be considered;

– additional requirements in accordance with other appropriate standards and national rules may be

applicable to transformers and power supply units intended for use in special environments such as

tropical environment.

NOTE 6 Future technological development of transformers may necessitate a need to increase the upper limit of

the frequencies, until then this standard may be used as a guidance document.
