The purpose of this recommended practice is to offer to equipment designers and users a set of standard and additional surge-testing waveforms and stress levels derived from the surge environment described in the companion guide IEEE Std C62.41.1-2002. The selection and specification of which waveform and what stress level should be considered for specific equipment remain the perogative and responsibility of designers and users. This recommended practice is only the basis for making an informed decision made possible by a simplification of a complex database. This simplification will then allow consistent, repeatable, and cost-effective specification of surge performance for equipment connected to low-voltage ac power circuits.The scope of this recommended practice is to characterize the surge environment at locations on ac power circuits described in C62.41.1 by means of standardized waveforms and other stress parameters.
