IEEE C37.90.3-2001

IEEE Standard Electrostatic Discharge Tests for Protective Relays

Reaffirmed March 2012. This standard describes test procedure, test point selection, test level, and acceptance criteria for repeatable electrostatic discharge immunity evaluations for tabletop and floor-standing protective relay equipment. Simulator characteristics for hand/metal ESD testing are specified for both the air and contact discharge methods. This standard has been harmonized with other ESD standards where consensus could be reached.

PC37.90.3

Standard Electrostatic Discharge Tests for Protective Relays

This standard specifies design tests for relays, relay systems, and control devices used for protection and control of electric power apparatus, that relate to the immunity of this equipment to electrostatic discharge. For devices with communication ports, where the device does not perform protection or control functions, testing of the communication functions is covered by IEEE Std. 1613. Where the device performs protection or control functions and has communication ports, tests for all communication functions are covered by this document.
