Abstract

NEW! IEC 61071:2017 is available as IEC 61071:2017 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.

IEC 61071:2017 applies to capacitors for power electronics applications. The operating frequency of the systems in which these capacitors are used is usually up to 15 kHz, while the pulse frequencies may be up to 5 to 10 times the operating frequency. The document distinguishes between AC and DC capacitors which are considered as components when mounted in enclosures. This document covers an extremely wide range of capacitor technologies for numerous applications, e.g. overvoltage protection, DC and filtering, switching circuits, energy storage, auxiliary inverters, etc. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2007. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- Introduction of new terms and definitions;
- clarifications for surge discharge test;
- indications for measuring procedure during thermal stability test;
- clarifications for self-healing test;
- clarifications for endurance test;
- clarifications for destruction test;
- update of normative references;
- general editorial review.
