Foreword

This document (EN 50598-3:2015) has been prepared by CLC/TC 22X “Power electronics”.

The following dates are fixed:
• latest date by which this document has to be (dop) 2016-01-05
implemented at national level by publication of
an identical national standard or by
endorsement
• latest date by which the national standards (dow) 2018-01-05
conflicting with this document have to
be withdrawn

This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CENELEC by the European Commission

and the European Free Trade Association.

CLC/TC 22X/WG 6 as the standardization Task Force dealing with Mandate M/476 from the European

Commission for standardization in the field of variable speed drives and/or power drive system

products has been setting a close collaboration with several other technical committees (i.e.

CLC/TC 2; CLC/TC 17B) in order to provide a comprehensive standard for energy efficiency and

ecodesign requirements.
Key points:
— requirements on how to implement an environmentally conscious design process;

— requirements for environmental declarations, including product category rules for the underlying

life cycle assessment of PDS;

— requirements on how to use environmental declarations in the extended product approach.

Within CLC/TC 22X/WG 6 a Task Force (TF2) has been set up for dealing with the environmental

aspects of ecodesign through harmonized methods of assessing a product’s environmental

performance and providing an environmental declaration for components of a motor system.

Since currently no horizontal approach on environmental declarations and no underlying life cycle

assessment, within the standard basic and motor system specific product category rules, as required

by EN ISO 14025, have been defined. If the approach is standardized for electronic and electro

technical equipment through a harmonized standard (e.g. by CLC/TC 111X), the basic category rules

(Clause 7) will become obsolete; however, this standard to be issued applies instead. Furthermore,

product specific requirements, e.g. defined in Annex C, still need to be followed.

It is the intention of the working group that this document, once finalized as a European standard, is

further processed to an international consensus in IEC according to the UAP procedure agreement

between CENELEC and IEC.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. CENELEC [and/or CEN] shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such

patent rights.

Introduction

Technical Committee CLC/TC 22X has circulated on 2010-03-31 for a short period of time the

CLC/TC22X/Sec0100/DC document including Mandate M/476 from the European Commission for

standardization in the field of variable speed drives and/or Power Drive System products.

As the PDS contains converter driven motors, the additional requirements for measuring of the energy

efficiency of those motors with non-sinusoidal supply and the labelling for the whole PDS are also

included. This covers the requirements coming from Mandate M/470.

The horizontal ecodesign mandate, M/495, has been accepted at the end of 2011 by CEN and

CENELEC, and requires to provide harmonized methods for measuring a product’s environmental

performance with a life cycle assessment and to provide an environmental footprint.

The document is based on the CENELEC Technical board document referenced BT137/DG8058/INF

also reproducing this EC-Mandate.

CLC/TC 22X Working Group 6 as the standardization Task Force dealing with this Mandate has

anticipated that a close collaboration with several other technical committees (i.e. CLC/TC 2;

CLC/TC 17B) should be set.

Therefore CLC/TC 22X Committee has taken its responsibility for this field and has started a

standardization work to clarify all aspects in the field of energy efficiency and ecodesign requirements

for Power electronics, Switchgear, Control gear, and Power drive systems and their industrial

applications.

The sometimes controversial requirements in the field of these tasks are illustrated in Figure 1. The

work has been agreed to provide the reasonable target as a best compromise in this field.

EN 50598-3:2015 (E)

EN 50598 is developed under the CENELEC projects number 24602 to 24604 for compliance with

requirements from the horizontal mandate M/495. EN 50598 “Ecodesign for power drive systems,

motor starters, power electronics & their driven applications” consists of the following parts:

Part 1: General requirements for setting energy efficiency standards for power driven equipment

using the extended product approach (EPA), and semi analytic model (SAM);
Part 2: Energy efficiency indicators for power drive systems and motor starters;

Part 3: Quantitative ecodesign approach through life cycle assessment including product

category rules and the content of environmental declarations.

The parts together will provide the appropriate set of standards also covering the individual mandates

M/470, M/476, M/498, M/500 already in reference within Mandate M/495 and the upcoming mandates

for standardization of other power driven applications.

1 Scope

This part of EN 50598 specifies the process and requirements to implement environmentally

conscious product design principles, to evaluate ecodesign performance and to communicate potential

environmental impacts for power electronics (e.g. complete drive modules, CDM), power drive

systems and motor starters, all used for motor driven equipment in the power range of 0,12 kW up to

1 000 kW and low voltage (up to 1 000 V) applications over the whole life cycle.

It defines the content for 2 different environmental declarations based on EN ISO 14021:

― The basic version - which, in this context, will be referred to as an environmental declaration type

II, with basic data and qualitative statements on ecodesign.

― The full version - which, in this context, will be referred to as an environmental declaration type

II+, based upon a life cycle assessment and including quantitatively evaluated potential

environmental impacts. For that the general principles of EN ISO 14025 are taken into account

and product category rules [PCR] for motor system components are included to ensure a

harmonized approach.

This part of EN 50598 is harmonized with the applicable generic and horizontal environmental

standards and contains the additional details relevant in this context for the above mentioned

products.
