INTRODUCTION
Replace the existing text of the Introduction with the following:
Background

Power conversion equipment (PCE) is indispensable for solar photovoltaic power energy

systems in order to convert the DC electric power energy generated by solar photovoltaic panels

into AC or DC electric power, and to feed the AC power energy into the AC mains network or

loads. PCE consists of DC to DC, DC to AC or AC to DC converters and forms systems with or

without DC-coupled electrical energy storage devices.

Manufacturers of PCE ensure the performance and reliability of PCE. Electromagnetic

compatibility (EMC) is one aspect of performance which must be ensured wherever PCE is used

in or exposed to an electromagnetic environment.

IEC Guide 107 specifies that TC 77 and CISPR, which are called EMC committees, have

responsibility for the development of basic, product family and generic standards on EMC

requirements, and product committees must use the emission limits developed by EMC

committees and must refer to basic immunity standards for the specification of test techniques.

However, when the EMC standards which are developed by TC 77 and CISPR are not

considered suitable for a particular product or electromagnetic environment, product

committees must seek their assistance and advice for any change in the emission limits and/or

measurement requirements. Product committees are responsible for selecting the appropriate

immunity test items and levels for their products as well as for defining the relevant performance

criteria for the evaluation of the immunity test results. Consequently, product committees, such

as TC 22, TC 26, TC 9, and TC 69, have their own EMC standard to define EMC requirements

and test methods for their particular types of products.

TC 82 also has the responsibility to consider EMC requirements for PCE applying to the solar

photovoltaic power energy systems, and TC 82 has taken action as follows to develop its own

product EMC standards:

a) selection of the immunity test items in accordance with EMC environments for the solar

photovoltaic power energy systems,

b) supplement of generic standards with a detailed description of test conditions and test set

up,

c) development of the conditional limits and alternative test methods in terms of installation

environmental and operational conditions, and

d) development of appropriate requirements and test method for high power equipment.

In 2017, TC82 published IEC 62920 (Ed.1.0). By taking into account the latest market needs,

IEC 62920:2017 (Ed.1.0) has covered the above mentioned items and presents the minimum

EMC requirements for PCE applying to solar photovoltaic power energy systems.
Purpose of the maintenance of a product EMC standard

Following the state of the art technology as well as the latest market needs, users of standards

recognize the improvement of product EMC standards. The maintenance of product standards

is also one of important activities for product committees.

IEC 62920:2017 (Ed.1.0) is amended to extend the scope of IEC 62920:2017 (Ed.1.0) by taking

into account the following technical items.
– DC to DC power conversion equipment used in photovoltaic power energy systems.

– Electrical energy storage devices connected to DC power ports of PCE used in photovoltaic

power energy systems.

Furthermore, IEC 62920:2017 (Ed.1.0) is amended to cover the latest options of measurement

distance of radiated disturbances by taking the latest updates of CISPR 16-1-4 and CISPR 16-

2-3 into consideration to adapt it to different sizes of products.
1 Scope
Replace the existing first paragraph with the following:

This document specifies electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements for power

conversion equipment (PCE) (e.g. DC to DC, DC to AC and AC to DC) for use in photovoltaic

(PV) power systems with or without DC-coupled electrical energy storage devices.
