P1836 - Standard for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) - Limits for Harmonic Current Emissions Produced by Equipment Connected to Public Low-Voltage Systems with Input Current <= 16 A Per Phase

This standard provides users the procedures for determining harmonic content on the power line for those systems that use 60 Hz and 120V/240V systems such as those in the United States, Canada and other regions of the world.This Standard is an adaptation of IEC SC77A - IEC 61000-3-2: Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) - Part 3-2: Limits - Limits for harmonic current emissions (equipment input current <= 16 A per phase), with appropriate deviations. Using IEC 61000-3-2 as a seed document, the document is a unified EMC standard for appropriate applications for use in electrical systems with 60 Hz, 120/240 V nominal values.
