IEC 62271-107:2019 is available as IEC 62271-107:2019 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.IEC 62271-107:2019 applies to three-pole-operated fused circuit-switchers designed with rated voltages above 1 kV up to and including 52 kV for use on three-phase alternating current systems of either 50 Hz or 60 Hz. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2012. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a) technical changes introduced by the second edition of IEC 62271-1 are applied, where relevant; b) rated TRV is removed and TRV is now treated as a test parameter), as in IEC 62271-100; c) the term "thermal current" is no longer used; the rated continuous current is linked to the installed fuse-links, and values shall be provided by the manufacturer together with the list of the acceptable fuse-links; for tests purpose, the highest rated continuous current listed is referred, where previously the wording was "rated maximum thermal current", for consistency with IEC 62271-105; d) making and breaking test duties are independent type tests (as some may be omitted if the switching device has been validated as a load-break switch). However, TDIt0 and TDIlow are kept as a sequence as they are linked to the same rated value (It0); e) differentiation has been introduced between requirements expressed for fulfilling the function expected from a fused circuit-switcher, from requirements only relevant when the function is performed by a stand-alone device. The goal is to avoid duplication or conflicts of requirements with a standard dealing with assemblies, when the function is implemented within such an assembly.

This European Standard specifies the service conditions, rated characteristics, general structural requirements and test methods of the prefabricated assembly of the main electrical functional units of a HV/LV Distribution Substation, duly interconnected, for alternating current of rated operating voltages above 1 kV and up to and including 52 kV on the HV side, service frequency 50 Hz. This assembly is to be cable-connected to the network. This Compact Equipment Assembly for Distribution Substation (CEADS) as defined in this standard is designed and tested to be a single product with a single serial number and one set of documentation. Such equipment is delivered as single transport unit. For practical reasons manufacturer and user can agree to transport the unit dismantled if transport or installation of the complete CEADS is not possible. In that case suitable verification tests shall be carried out at the installation site. Note 1: Where the functional units are independent each functional unit will also have its own serial number. A CEADS is not a Distribution Substation, either prefabricated (covered by EN 62271 202) or not (covered by EN 61936-1). However CEADS is intended to become part of a Distribution Substation assembling the HV equipment, the power transformer and the LV equipment duly interconnected (see Annex C, which also explains the origin and types of CEADS). The functions of a CEADS are: – switching and control for the operation of the HV side and protection of the HV/LV transformer functional unit; – HV/LV transformation; – switching and control for the operation and protection of the LV feeders. However relevant provisions of this standard are also applicable to designs where not all of these functions exist (e.g. equipment comprising only HV/LV transformation and switching and control for the operation and protection of the LV feeder functions). For public distribution networks, CEADS are intended for installation within an indoor or outdoor closed electrical operating area (see Definition 1.3.3) forming part of a Distribution Substation. For industrial applications, such as factories, installation of CEADS outside a closed electrical operating area may be allowed provided that safety regulations are fulfilled by additional measures adopted at the installation site under the responsibility of the designer of the installation. This standard considers the potential interaction between the individual functions when closely installed and interconnected to form a type tested assembly and defines ratings, particular design and construction requirements and test procedures for this assembly. NOTE 2 Interaction is the influence of one functional units of the equipment on another (i.e. electrical mechanical and thermal stresses). NOTE 3 For the purpose of this standard a self-protected transformer is considered not as a CEADS, but as a functional unit, designed and type tested to its own product standard EN 60076 13.

This part of IEC 62271 applies to compact switchgear assemblies consisting of at least one switching device directly connected to, or sharing components with, one or more other devices such that there is an interaction between the functions of the individual devices. Such assemblies are made up of devices defined in 1.101 and are designed, tested and supplied for use as a single unit. The interaction between devices may be due to proximity, sharing of components or a combination of both. The assemblies may contain components of air insulated switchgear (AIS) only or a combination of AIS and gas insulated switchgear (GIS), so called mixed technology switchgear (MTS) and may be delivered entirely prefabricated or partially assembled.

IEC 62271-215:2021 is applicable to phase comparators designed to be plugged into the testing points of a voltage detecting and indicating system (VDIS) according to IEC 62271-213, to give an indication of the result of a phase comparison. The main usage is to provide a clear evidence of the phase relationship between two energized parts of a high-voltage network, at the same nominal voltage and frequency before coupling them. This first edition cancels and replaces the first edition of IEC 61243-5 published in 1997 and the first edition of IEC 62271-206 published in 2011. This edition constitutes a merging of the content of IEC 61243-5 and IEC 62271-206. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous editions of IEC 61243-5 and IEC 62271-206:  the document does not include the specific phase comparators (SPCs) as defined in IEC 61243-5, which was specific to manufacturers, and takes back the technical principles of the universal phase comparator (UPC) for VDIS of all manufacturers; the phase comparator for sequential connected operation is introduced to facilitate the operation of phase comparation of large MV panels.

IEC 62271-200:2021(E) is applicable to prefabricated metal‑enclosed switchgear and controlgear assemblies designed for: – alternating current; – rated voltages above 1 kV and up to and including 52 kV; – service frequencies up to and including 60 Hz; – indoor and outdoor installation. The assembly can include air-insulated and/or fluid-filled compartments. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2011. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a) clause numbering aligned with IEC 62271‑1:2017, including the adoption of the subclause names of Clause 3; b) in Clause 3 specific definitions are added for "in service", "normal operating condition" and "normal use"; c) internal arc testing on pole-mounted switchgear is taken out of this document, as it is now covered by the specific standard IEC 62271‑214:2019; d) a more precise description of earthing circuit is given with the inclusion of ratings and test requirements; e) number of mechanical tests on interlocks is reduced for type testing; a more precise description of forces to apply during type testing is given (refer to 7.102); f) resistance measuring on main circuit is only needed before continuous current tests (as reference for routine tests) and no longer needed after this continuous current test. Rationale for this deletion is that this measured resistance does not mean anything; as the temperature rise test was just finished, a new temperature rise test will not give new information; g) IEC 62271-100:2021, IEC 62271-103:2021, IEC 62271-105:2021 and IEC 62271-106:2021 are referred to in the document; h) IEC 62271‑107:2019 and IEC IEEE 62271‑37‑013:2015 are also considered in 7.101.2; i) a more precise description of LSC category is given with the inclusion of an explanatory flowchart (Annex D); j) examples not covered by the IAC test are transferred from Clause 6 to 9.103; k) the term "assembly" is defined in Clause 3 and used as synonym for "metal-enclosed switchgear and controlgear" in this document; l) "metallic" is replaced by "metal" where applicable; m) 6.105 is now covered by 7.7; n) a 1 s rule was introduced for Criterion 4 during IAC tests regarding hot gases versus glowing particles as cause of ignition; o) a more precise description of internal arc tests for switchgear with protrusions is given in Annex A.
