IEC 61643-31:2018 is applicable to Surge Protective Devices (SPDs), intended for surge protection against indirect and direct effects of lightning or other transient overvoltages. These devices are designed to be connected to the DC side of photovoltaic installations rated up to 1 500 V DC. These devices contain at least one non-linear component and are intended to limit surge voltages and divert surge currents. Performance characteristics, safety requirements, standard methods for testing and ratings are established. SPDs complying with this standard are exclusively dedicated to be installed on the DC side of photovoltaic generators and the DC side of inverters. SPDs for PV systems with energy storage (e.g. batteries, capacitor banks) are not covered. SPDs with separate input and output terminals that contain specific series impedance between these terminal(s) (so called two-port SPDs according to IEC 61643-11:2011) are not covered. SPDs compliant with this standard are designed to be permanently connected where connection and disconnection of fixed SPDs can only be done using a tool. This standard does not apply to portable SPDs Keywords: photovoltaic installations, lightning or other transient overvoltages

IEC 61643-22:2015 describes the principles for the selection, operation, location and coordination of SPDs connected to telecommunication and signalling networks with nominal system voltages up to 1 000 V r.m.s. a.c. and 1 500 V d.c. This standard also addresses SPDs that incorporate protection for signalling lines and power lines in the same enclosure (so called multiservice SPDs). This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2004. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - Update the use of multiservice SPDs (Article 8); - Comparison between SPD classification of IEC 61643-11 and IEC 61643-21 (7.3.3); - Consideration of new transmission systems as PoE (Annex F); - EMC requirements of SPDs (Annex G); - Maintenance cycles of SPDs (Annex I).

This European Standard defines the requirements and tests for SPDs intended to be installed on the d.c. side of photovoltaic installations to protect against induced and direct lightning effects. These devices are connected to d.c. power circuits of photovoltaic generators, rated up to 1 500 V. It takes into account that photovoltaic generators: • behave like current generators, • that their nominal current depends on the light intensity, • that their short-circuit current is almost equal to the nominal current, • are connected in series and/or parallel combinations leading to a great variety of voltages, currents and powers from a few hundreds of W (in residential installations) to several MW (photovoltaic fields). The very specific electrical parameters of PV installations on the d.c. side require specific test requirements for SPDs. SPDs with separate input and output terminal(s) that contain a specific series impedance between these terminal(s) (so called two port SPDs according to EN 61643-11) are currently not sufficiently covered by the requirements of this standard and require additional consideration. NOTE In general SPDs for PV applications do not contain a specific series impedance between the input/output terminals due to power efficiency considerations. SPDs complying with this standard are exclusively dedicated to be installed on the d.c. side of photovoltaic generators. PV installation including batteries and other d.c. applications are not taken into account and additional requirements and tests may be necessary for such applications. SPDs for which the manufacturers declares short circuit mode overload behaviour, shall require specific measures to ensure that such devices will not endanger the operator during maintenance and replacement due to possible d.c. arcing.

IEC 61643-11:2011 is applicable to devices for surge protection against indirect and direct effects of lightning or other transient overvoltages. These devices are packaged to be connected to 50/60 Hz a.c. power circuits, and equipment rated up to 1 000 V r.m.s. Performance characteristics, standard methods for testing and ratings are established. These devices contain at least one nonlinear component and are intended to limit surge voltages and divert surge currents. This first edition of IEC 61643-11 cancels and replaces the second edition of IEC 61643-1 published in 2005. The main changes with respect of the second edition of IEC 61643-1 are the complete restructuring and improvement of the test procedures and test sequences. NOTE: The attention of National Committees is drawn to the fact that equipment manufacturers and testing organizations may need a transitional period following publication of a new, amended or revised IEC publication in which to make products in accordance with the new requirements and to equip themselves for conducting new or revised tests. It is the recommendation of the committee that the content of this publication be adopted for national implementation not earlier than 12 months from the date of publication. In the meantime, the previous edition can still be ordered by contacting your local IEC member National Committee or the IEC Central Office.

This Technical Specification applies to surge protection of wind turbine generators and wind power systems. Normative references are made to generic standards for lightning protection, low-voltage systems and high-voltage systems for machinery and installations and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). This Technical Specification defines requirements for selection and installation of surge protective devices for the power circuits. Some special information about particular testing are also included since there is not a current standard for testing surge protective devices for wind turbines.

This document describes the principles for selection, installation and coordination of SPDs intended for use in Photovoltaic (PV) systems up to 1500 V DC and for the AC side of the PV system rated up to 1000 V rms 50/60 Hz. The photovoltaic installation extends from a PV array or a set of interconnected PV-modules to include the associated cabling and protective devices and the converter up to the connection point in the distribution board or the utility supply point. This document considers SPDs used in different locations and in different kinds of PV systems: - PV systems located on the top of a building; - PV systems located on the ground like free field power plants characterized by multiple earthing and a meshed earthing system. The term PV installation is used to refer to both kinds of PV systems. The term PV power plant is only used for extended free-field multi-earthed power systems located on the ground. For PV installations including batteries additional requirements could be necessary. NOTE 1 The HD 60364 series, EN 62305 series and CLC/TS 61643 12 also apply. NOTE 2 This document deals only with SPDs and not with surge protective components integrated inside equipment (e.g. inverters, (PCE) power conversion equipment).

This Technical Specification describes the principles for selection, location, coordination and operation of SPDs to be connected to PV installations. The d.c. side is rated up to 1 500 V d.c. and the a.c. side, if any, is rated up to 1 000 V rms 50 Hz. The electrical installation starts from a PV generator or a set of interconnected PV modules with their cables, provided by the PV generator manufacturer, up to the user installation or the utility supply point. For PV installations including batteries, additional requirements will be necessary. NOTE 1 HD 60364-7-712, CLC/TS 61643-12 and EN 62305-4 are also applicable. NOTE 2 This Technical Specification deals only with SPDs, and not with SPDs components integrated inside equipment.

This Technical Specification deals with the protection of PV installations against overvoltages. It deals with the protection of the PV installation against surge overvoltages induced by direct and indirect lightning strikes. If such a PV installation is connected to an AC-supply system this document is applicable as a complement of HD 60364 4 443, HD 60364 5 534 and HD 60364 7 712 and also CLC/TS 61643 12. Surge protective devices (SPD) installed on the AC side shall comply with EN 61643 11. NOTE 1 Due to the very specific electrical setup of PV installations on the DC side, only surge protective devices especially dedicated to PV installations shall be used to protect the DC side of such installations. NOTE 2 Taking into account the sensitivity and of the setting up of the photovoltaic modules, a detailed attention must be paid to the protection of the structure itself (building) against direct effects of the lightning; this subject is covered by EN 62305 series.
