Electrical installations for aeronautical ground lighting at aerodromes - Part 1: Fundamental principles (IEC 61820-1:2019)

This part of IEC 61820 covers principles of design and installation requirements for AGL
systems including control, monitoring and transformation of energy, the cables and any
electrical component utilized to produce the light intended to be used as a visual aid for air
and ground navigation.
This document defines in general the fundamental principles to provide safe, reliable and
efficient operation of AGL systems independent of the particular system design. Where certain
aspects of design are specific to a particular type of system (e.g. series-circuit), these are
supplemented in the applicable part.
NOTE Local / national regulations can be different from the provisions of this document.

Installations électriques pour le balisage aéronautique au sol dans les aérodromes - Partie 1: Principes fondamentaux (IEC 61820-1:2019)

L'IEC 61820-1:2019 couvre des principes relatifs aux exigences de conception et d'installation pour des systèmes AGL incluant la commande, le contrôle et la transformation de l'énergie, les câbles et tous les composants électriques utilisés pour générer le rayonnement lumineux destiné à être utilisé comme une aide visuelle à la navigation aérienne et au sol. Le présent document définit de manière générale les principes fondamentaux nécessaires pour fournir un fonctionnement sûr, fiable et efficace des systèmes AGL quelle que soit la conception du système. Lorsque certains aspects de conception sont spécifiques à un type de système particulier (par exemple un circuit en série), ils sont ajoutés dans la partie applicable.

Električne inštalacije za letališko razsvetljavo na tleh letališč - 1. del: Temeljna načela (IEC 61820-1:2019)

Ta del standarda IEC 61820 zajema načela načrtovanja in namestitvene zahteve za sisteme talne letališke razsvetljave (AGL), vključno z nadzorom, spremljanjem ter pretvorbo energije, kablov in vseh električnih komponent, ki se uporabljajo za proizvodnjo svetlobe, namenjene vizualni pomoči za zračno in talno navigacijo.
Ta dokument v splošnem določa temeljna načela za zagotavljanje varnega, zanesljivega in učinkovitega delovanja sistemov AGL, neodvisno od zasnove posameznega sistema. Če so določeni vidiki zasnove specifični za določeno vrsto sistema (npr. serijsko vezje), je to dopolnjeno v ustreznem delu.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS FOR AERONAUTICAL
GROUND LIGHTING AT AERODROMES –
Part 1: Fundamental principles
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 61820-1 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 97:

Electrical installations for lighting and beaconing of aerodromes.

INTRODUCTION

This document is part of IEC 61820, a series of standards that defines the requirements

throughout the lifecycle of an Aeronautical Ground Lighting (AGL) system including design,

installation, commissioning, maintenance, decommissioning and disposal.
This document contains fundamental design requirements for AGL systems.

According to ICAO or national standards, the AGL fixtures are subject to specific

requirements for photometric output and serviceability level.

The AGL system is provided to support airfield activities. Therefore, the focus of AGL system

design is to maintain the lighting against any possible failure. This document pertains to

personnel and operational safety.
