BS IEC 62894:2014+A1:2016

Photovoltaic inverters. Data sheet and name plate

Published by: 2015-07-31 / 2015-07-31 / 18 pages
BS IEC 62894:2014+A1:2016 describes data sheet and name plate information for photovoltaic
inverters in grid parallel operation.

The object of this standard is to provide minimum information required to configure a safe and
optimal system with photovoltaic inverters.

In this context, data sheet information is a technical description separate from the
photovoltaic inverter. The name plate is a sign of durable construction on or in the
photovoltaic inverter. The name plate may be inside the photovoltaic inverter only if the name
plate is visible once a door is opened in normal use.

Nuclear power plants. Control rooms. Computer-based procedures

Published by: 2016-10-31 / 2016-10-31 / 50 pages
BS IEC 62646:2016 establishes requirements for the whole life cycle of operating procedures that
the designer wishes to computerise. It also provides guidance for making decisions about
which types of procedures should be computerised and to what extent. Once computerised,
procedures are designated as “computer-based procedures” (CBP).

BS IEC 62855:2016

Nuclear power plants. Electrical power systems. Electrical power systems analysis

Published by: 2016-09-30 / 2016-09-30 / 62 pages
BS IEC 62855:2016 provides the electrotechnical engineering guidelines for analysis of AC and DC
electrical power systems in nuclear power plants (NPPs) in order to demonstrate that the
power sources and the distribution systems have the capability for safe operation and shut
down of the NPP, bringing it to a controlled state after an anticipated operational occurrence
or accident conditions and finally reaching a safe state.

The analytical studies discussed in this document provide assurance that the design bases
are satisfied to meet their functional requirements under the conditions produced by the
applicable design basis events. The studies provide assurance that the electrical power
system is capable of supporting safety functions during all required plant conditions.

NOTE The safety functions are described in IAEA Specific Safety Requirements SSR-2/1 related to the design of the nuclear power plants.

Analytical studies validate the robustness and adequacy of design margins and demonstrate
the capability of electrical power systems to support plant operation for normal, abnormal,
degraded and accident conditions.

The analyses are used to verify that the electrical power system can withstand minor
disturbances and that the consequences of major disturbances or failures do not degrade the
capability of the electrical power systems to support safe shutdown of the plant and maintain
the plant in shutdown condition.

The analyses are performed with one or more of

  • simulation tools (software and hardware) that have been verified and validated,
  • hand calculations, and
  • tests.

This document provides guidance on the types of analyses required to demonstrate that the
plant’s auxiliary power system can perform the required safety functions. This document does
not provide specific details on how the analysis should be conducted.

This document does not cover digital controllers (such as controllers for rectifiers, inverters,
sequencers and electrical protection devices) used in electrical power systems. IEC 61513
gives recommendations that apply to the electronic controls and protective elements of the
electrical power systems.

This document does not include environmental conditions (i.e. temperature, humidity, etc.) or
external events (seismic, flooding, fire, high energy electromagnetic pulse, etc.) that may
impact equipment sizing or protection requirements. The external events lightning and
geomagnetic storms are included.

This document does not cover additional or unique requirements for stand-alone power
system, such as power supplies for security measures in NPPs. Pertinent clauses of this
document may be used as a guideline for such systems.

BS IEC 62548:2016

Photovoltaic (PV) arrays. Design requirements

Published by: 2016-10-31 / 2016-10-31 / 72 pages
BS IEC 62548:2016 sets out design requirements for photovoltaic (PV) arrays
including DC array wiring, electrical protection devices, switching and earthing provisions. The
scope includes all parts of the PV array up to but not including energy storage devices, power
conversion equipment or loads. An exception is that provisions relating to power conversion
equipment are covered only where DC safety issues are involved. The interconnection of
small DC conditioning units intended for connection to PV modules are also included.

The object of this document is to address the design safety requirements arising from the
particular characteristics of photovoltaic systems. Direct current systems, and PV arrays in
particular, pose some hazards in addition to those derived from conventional AC power
systems, including the ability to produce and sustain electrical arcs with currents that are not
greater than normal operating currents.

In grid connected systems, the safety requirements of this document are however critically
dependent on the inverters associated with PV arrays complying with the requirements of
IEC 62109-1 and IEC 62109-2.

Installation requirements are also critically dependent on compliance with the
IEC 60364 series (see Clause 4).

PV arrays of less than 100 W and less than 35 V DC open circuit voltage at STC are not
covered by this document.

PV arrays in grid connected systems connected to medium or high voltage systems are not
covered in this document. Variations and additional requirements for large-scale ground
mounted PV power plants with restricted access to personnel will also be addressed in
IEC TS 627381.

Additional requirements may be needed for more specialized installations, for example
concentrating systems, tracking systems or building integrated PV.

The present international standard also includes extra protection requirements of PV arrays
when they are directly connected with batteries at the DC level.
