PC62.41.1

Guide on the Surge Environment in Low-Voltage (1000 V and less) AC Power Circuits

This is a guide describing the surge voltage, surge current, and temporary overvoltage (TOV) environment in low voltage [up to 1000 V root mean square (rms)] ac power circuits. This scope does not include other power disturbances, such as notches, sags, and noise. The surges considered in this guide do not exceed one-half period of the normal mains waveform (fundamental frequency) in duration. They can be periodic or random events and can appear in any combination of line, neutral, or grounding conductors. They include surges with amplitudes, durations, or rates of change sufficient to cause equipment damage or operational upset. While surge protective devices (SPDs) acting primarily on the amplitude of the voltage are often applied to divert the damaging surges, the upsetting surges may require other remedies. The rationale for including a description of TOVs in this guide on the surge environment is given in the purpose clause.

PC62.41.2

Recommended Practice on Characterization of Surges in Low-Voltage (1000 V and less) AC Power Circuits

The scope of this recommended practice is to characterize the surge environment at locations on ac power circuits described in IEEE Std C62.41.1 by means of standardized waveforms and other stress parameters. The surges considered in this recommended practice do not exceed one half-cycle of the normal mains waveform (fundamental frequency) in duration. They can be periodic or random events and can appear in any combination of line, neutral, or grounding conductors. They include surges with amplitudes, durations, or rates of change sufficient to cause equipment damage or operational upset. While surge protective devices (SPDs) acting primarily on the amplitude of the voltage or current are often applied to divert the damaging surges, the upsetting surges might require other remedies.

PC62.41.4

Recommended Practice on Surge Testing for Equipment Connected to Low-Voltage (1000 V and less) AC Power Circuits

This recommended practice defines recommendations for surge testing performance of surge testing on electrical and electronic equipment connected to low-voltage ac power circuits, specifically using the recommended test waveforms defined in IEEE Std C62.41.2. Nevertheless, these recommendations are applicable to any surge testing, regardless of the specific surges that may be applied.

C62.41.3-2020

IEEE Guide for Interactions between Power System Disturbances and Surge Protective Devices

Information is provided to users and manufacturers of surge-protective devices (SPDs) about the interactions that can occur between SPDs and power system disturbances. This guide applies to SPDs manufactured to be connected to 50 Hz or 60 Hz ac power circuits rated at 100u20131000 V rms. The effects of the presence and operation of SPDs on the quality of power available to the connected loads are described. The interaction between multiple SPDs on the same circuit is also described.

IEEE Guide for Surge Voltages in Low-Voltage AC Power Circuits

A practical basis is provided for the selection of voltage and current tests to be applied in evaluating the surge withstand capability of equipment connected to utility power circuits, primarily in residential, commercial, and light industrial applications. The recommended practice covers the origin of surge voltages, rate of occurrence and voltage levels in unprotected circuits, waveshapes of representative surge voltages, energy, and source and impedance.
