IEEE C62.45-1987 - IEEE Guide on Surge Testing for Equipment Connected to Low-Voltage AC Power Circuits
Guidance is provided for applying surge testing to AC power interfaces of equipment connected to low-voltage ac power circuits that are subject to transient overvoltages. Signal and data lines are not addressed in this document, nor are any specifications stated on the withstand levels that might be assigned to specific equipments. An important objective of the document is to call attention to the safety aspects of surge testing.
IEEE C62.45-2002 - IEEE Recommended Practice on Surge Testing for Equipment Connected to Low-Voltage (1000 V and less) AC Power Circuits
The scope of this recommended practice is the performance of surge testing on electrical and electronic equipment connected to low-voltage ac power circuits, specifically using there commended test waveform defined in IEEE Std C62.41.2-2002. Nevertheless, these recommendations are applicable to any surge testing, regardless of the specific surges that may be applied.
