Electricity metering equipment (a.c.) - Particular requirements - Part 24: Static meters for reactive energy at fundamental frequency (classes 0,5 S, 1S, 1, 2 and 3)

IEC 62053-24:2020 applies only to static var-hour meters of accuracy classes 0,5S, 1S, 1, 2 and 3 for the measurement of alternating current electrical reactive energy in 50 Hz or 60 Hz networks and it applies to their type tests only.
This document uses a conventional definition of reactive energy where the reactive power and energy is calculated from the fundamental frequency components of the currents and voltages only.
This document applies to electricity metering equipment designed to:
• measure and control electrical energy on electrical networks (mains) with voltage up to 1 000 V AC;
• have all functional elements, including add-on modules, enclosed in, or forming a single meter case with exception of indicating displays;
• operate with integrated or detached indicating displays, or without an indicating display;
• be installed in a specified matching socket or rack;
• optionally, provide additional functions other than those for measurement of electrical energy.
Meters designed for operation with low power instrument transformers (LPITs as defined in the IEC 61869 series) may be considered as compliant with this document only if such meters and their LPITs are tested together and meet the requirements for directly connected meters.
This document does not apply to:
• meters for which the voltage line-to-neutral derived from nominal voltages exceeds 1 000 V AC;
• meters intended for connection with low power instrument transformers (LPITs as defined in the IEC 61869 series) when tested without such transformers;
• metering systems comprising multiple devices (except LPITs) physically remote from one another;
• portable meters;
• meters used in rolling stock, vehicles, ships and airplanes;
• laboratory and meter test equipment;
• reference standard meters;
• data interfaces to the register of the meter;
• matching sockets or racks used for installation of electricity metering equipment;
• any additional functions provided in electrical energy meters.
This document does not cover measures for the detection and prevention of fraudulent attempts to compromise a meter’s performance (tampering).
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2014 and its amendment 1:2016. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: see Annex E

Équipement de comptage de l'électricité - Exigences particulières - Partie 24: Compteurs statiques d'énergie réactive de composante fondamentale (classes 0,5S, 1S, 1, 2 et 3)

IEC 62053-24:2020 est applicable uniquement aux compteurs statiques d'énergie réactive des classes de précision 0,5S, 1S, 1, 2 et 3, destinés à la mesure de l'énergie électrique réactive en courant alternatif sur les réseaux électriques en 50 Hz et 60 Hz, et à leurs essais de type. Le présent document est fondé sur une définition conventionnelle de l'énergie réactive pour laquelle la puissance et l'énergie réactives ne sont calculées qu'à partir des composantes de fréquence fondamentale des courants et des tensions (voir Article 3). Le présent document s'applique aux appareils de comptage de l'électricité conçus pour: • mesurer et piloter l'énergie électrique sur les réseaux électriques (secteur) avec une tension allant jusqu'à 1 000 V en courant alternatif; • avoir tous les éléments fonctionnels, y compris les modules complémentaires, incorporés dans ou formant un boîtier de compteur unique, à l'exception des afficheurs; • fonctionner avec des afficheurs intégrés ou séparés, ou sans afficheur; • être installés dans une embase ou un bâti correspondant spécifié; • (facultatif) assurer des fonctions autres que celles relatives au comptage de l'énergie électrique. Les compteurs conçus pour être utilisés avec des transformateurs de mesure de faible puissance (LPIT – Low Power Instrument Transformers, définis dans la série IEC 61869) ne peuvent être jugés conformes au présent document que si ces compteurs et leurs LPIT sont soumis à l'essai ensemble et satisfont aux exigences relatives aux compteurs à branchement direct. Le présent document ne s'applique pas: • aux compteurs dont la tension phase-neutre déduite des tensions nominales dépasse 1 000 V en courant alternatif; • aux compteurs destinés à être connectés à des transformateurs de mesure de faible puissance (LPIT, définis dans la série IEC 61869) lorsqu'ils sont soumis à l'essai sans ces transformateurs; • aux systèmes de comptage comprenant plusieurs dispositifs (à l'exception des LPIT) physiquement éloignés les uns des autres; • aux compteurs portatifs; • aux compteurs utilisés dans le matériel roulant, les véhicules, les navires et les avions; • aux équipements de laboratoire et d'essai des compteurs; • aux compteurs étalons de référence; • aux interfaces de communication avec l'élément indicateur du compteur; • aux embases ou bâtis correspondants utilisés pour l'installation des équipements de comptage de l'électricité; • à toute fonction complémentaire assurée par les compteurs d'énergie électrique. Le présent document ne couvre pas les mesures de détection et de prévention des tentatives frauduleuses de compromettre la performance du compteur (falsification). Cette deuxième édition annule et remplace la première édition parue en 2014 et son amendement 1:2016. Cette édition constitue une révision technique.

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 62053-24 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 13:

Electrical energy measurement and control.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2014 and its amendment

1:2016. This edition constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition: see Annex E.

PARTICULAR REQUIREMENTS –
Part 24: Static meters for fundamental component reactive energy
(classes 0,5 S, 1 S, 1, 2 and 3)
1 Scope

This part of IEC 62053 applies only to static var-hour meters of accuracy classes 0,5 S, 1 S, 1,

2 and 3 for the measurement of alternating current electrical reactive energy in 50 Hz or 60 Hz

networks and it applies to their type tests only.

This document uses a conventional definition of reactive energy where the reactive power and

energy is calculated from the fundamental frequency components of the currents and voltages

only (see Clause 3).

NOTE 1 This differs from IEC 62053-23, where reactive power and energy is only defined for sinusoidal signals. In

this document reactive power and energy is defined for all periodic signals. Reactive power and energy is defined in

this way to achieve proper reproducibility of measurements with meters of different designs. With this definition,

reactive power and energy reflects the generally unnecessary current possible to compensate with capacitors rather

than the total unnecessary current.

NOTE 2 For other general requirements, such as safety, dependability, etc., see the relevant IEC 62052 or

IEC 62059 standards.
This document applies to electricity metering equipment designed to:

• measure and control electrical energy on electrical networks (mains) with voltage up to

1 000 V AC;

NOTE 3 For AC electricity meters, the voltage mentioned above is the line-to-neutral voltage derived from nominal

voltages. See IEC 62052-31:2015, Table 7;

• have all functional elements, including add-on modules, enclosed in, or forming a single

meter case with exception of indicating displays;

• operate with integrated or detached indicating displays, or without an indicating display;

• be installed in a specified matching socket or rack;

• optionally, provide additional functions other than those for measurement of electrical

energy.

Meters designed for operation with low power instrument transformers (LPITs as defined in the

IEC 61869 series) may be considered as compliant with this document only if such meters and

their LPITs are tested together and meet the requirements for directly connected meters.

NOTE 4 Modern electricity meters typically contain additional functions such as measurement of voltage magnitude,

current magnitude, power, frequency, power factor, etc.; measurement of power quality parameters; load control

functions; delivery, time, test, accounting, recording functions; data communication interfaces and associated data

security functions. The relevant standards for these functions may apply in addition to the requirements of this

document. However, the requirements for such functions are outside the scope of this document.

NOTE 5 Product requirements for power metering and monitoring devices (PMDs) and measurement functions such

as voltage magnitude, current magnitude, power, frequency, etc., are covered in IEC 61557-12. However, devices

compliant with IEC 61557-12 are not intended to be used as billing meters unless they are also compliant with the

IEC 62052-11:2020 and one or more relevant IEC 62053-xx accuracy class standards.

NOTE 6 Product requirements for power quality instruments (PQIs) are covered in IEC 62586-1. Requirements for

power quality measurement techniques (functions) are covered in IEC 61000-4-30. Requirements for testing of the

This document does not apply to:

• meters for which the voltage line-to-neutral derived from nominal voltages exceeds

1 000 V AC;

• meters intended for connection with low power instrument transformers (LPITs as defined

in the IEC 61869 series) when tested without such transformers;

• metering systems comprising multiple devices (except LPITs) physically remote from one

another;
• portable meters;
NOTE 7 Portable meters are meters that are not permanently connected;
• meters used in rolling stock, vehicles, ships and airplanes;
• laboratory and meter test equipment;
• reference standard meters;
• data interfaces to the register of the meter;

• matching sockets or racks used for installation of electricity metering equipment;

• any additional functions provided in electrical energy meters.

This document does not cover measures for the detection and prevention of fraudulent attempts

to compromise a meter’s performance (tampering).

NOTE 8 Nevertheless, specific tampering detection and prevention requirements, and test methods, as relevant for

a particular market are subject to the agreement between the manufacturer and the purchaser.

NOTE 9 Specifying requirements and test methods for fraud detection and prevention would be counterproductive,

as such specifications would provide guidance for potential fraudsters.

NOTE 10 There are many methods of tampering with meters reported from various markets; designing meters to

detect and prevent all kinds of tampering would lead to unjustified increase in costs of meter design, verification and

validation.

NOTE 11 Billing systems, such as, smart metering systems, are capable of detecting irregular consumption patterns

and irregular network losses which enable discovery of suspected meter tampering.

NOTE 12 For transformer operated meters paired with current transformers (CTs) according to IEC 61869-2:

– the standard CT measuring range is specified from 0,05 I to I for accuracy classes 0,1, 0,2, 0,5 and 1 and

n max
these CTs are used for meters of class 1, 2 and 3 according to this document;

– the special CT measuring range is specified from 0,01 I to I for accuracy classes 0,2S and 0,5 S and these

n max
CTs are used for meters of class 0,5 S and 1 S according to this document;

– combinations of standard CTs and meters of class 0,5 S and 1 S are subject to an agreement between

manufacturers and purchasers.

NOTE 13 This document does not specify emission requirements, these are specified in IEC 62052-11:2020, 9.3.14.
