Nanomanufacturing – Key control characteristics – Part 4-5: Cathode nanomaterials for nano-enabled electrical energy storage – Electrochemical characterization, 3-electrode cell method<br />

Published by: 2017-01-12 / 2017-01-12 / 22 pages
IEC TS 62607-4-5:2017(E) provides a standardized method for the determination of electrochemical properties of cathode nanomaterials such as lithium iron phosphate (LFP) for electrical energy storage devices. This method will enable the industry to:

  1. decide whether or not a cathode nanomaterial is usable, and
  2. select a cathode nanomaterial suitable for their application.

This document includes:

  • recommendations for sample preparation,
  • outlines of the experimental procedures used to measure cathode nanomaterial properties,
  • methods of interpretation of results and discussion of data analysis, and
  • case studies.

NOTE The very purpose of this method is to arrive at a detailed characterization of the electrodes so that individual contribution of the anode and cathode for performance and degradation could be predicted. The method can be applied for characterization of the electrode working as cathode or/and as anode.

Electricity metering data exchange – The DLMS/COSEM suite – Part 8-20: Mesh communication profile for neighbourhood networks

Published by: 2016-11-08 / 2016-11-08 / 25 pages
IEC TS 62056-8-20:2016(E) specifies a DLMS/COSEM communication profile that can be used in a smart metering system in which the Neighbourhood Networks (NN) are mesh networks. This profile may be considered as an adaptation and extension of the UDP/IP communication profile specified in IEC 62056-9-7:2013. It specifies a number of features essential to the efficient operation of a large scale AMI using mesh NNs.

Identification of units of measurement for computer-based processing

Published by: 2017-01-25 / 2017-01-25 / 87 pages
IEC TS 62720:2017(E) specifies identifiers for units to support computer-based processing of product data. It provides a survey of quantities with associated collections of internationally standardized as well as non–standardized units used in business and science.
It covers any standard or non-standard units of measure currently in use, in two or more distinct ethno-linguistic groups or nations, at least in one domain of industry, for which an explicit method of conversion to a known standard unit of measure or its equivalent is well documented or evident from external references.

Electronic railway equipment – Train communication network (TCN) – Part 2-4: TCN application profile

Published by: 2017-02-09 / 2017-02-09 / 88 pages
IEC TS 61375-2-4:2017(E) applies to the applications in trains, i.e. it covers the application profile for functions belonging to the Train Control and Monitoring System (TCMS). The application profile is based on the TCN communication system for the data communication between consists of the said trains. This document provides for a data interface with parameters and addressing of TCMS functions based on the communication profile laid out in IEC 61375-2-3. This document is applicable in rolling stock requiring interoperable coupling and uncoupling. This part of IEC 61375 may be additionally applicable to closed trains and multiple unit trains when so agreed between purchaser and supplier.

Direct current (DC) plugs and socket-outlets for information and communication technology (ICT) equipment installed in data centres and telecom central offices – Part 2: Plug and socket-outlet system for 5,2 kW

Published by: 2016-12-14 / 2016-12-14 / 21 pages
IEC TS 62735-2: 2016(E) applies to plugs and fixed socket-outlets for class I equipment with two active contacts plus an earthing contact, a rated power of 5,2 kW and a rated voltage range from 294 V to 400 V d.c. They are intended to power d.c. information and communication technology equipment only. The 2,6 kW system complying with Part 1 is safely compatible with the system complying with this part as it is possible to insert the 2,6 kW plug in the 5,2 kW socket-outlet but it is not possible to insert the 5,2 kW plug into the 2,6 kW socket-outlet.

This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC TS 62735-1:2015

Solar photovoltaic energy systems – Terms, definitions and symbols

Published by: 2016-12-13 / 2016-12-13 / 92 pages
IEC TS 61836:2016 RLV contains the International Standard and its Redline version. The Redline version is available in English only. The Redline version provides you with a quick and easy way to compare all the changes between this standard and its previous edition. The Redline version is not an official IEC Standard, only the current version of the standard is to be considered the official document.

IEC TS 61836:2016(E) deals with the terms, definitions and symbols from national and international solar photovoltaic standards and relevant documents used within the field of solar photovoltaic (PV) energy systems. It includes the terms, definitions and symbols compiled from the published IEC technical committee 82 standards. The main technical change with regard to the previous edition consists of adding / revising terms and definitions which have been discussed and agreed on during recent meetings of the TC 82 terminology working group.

Estimation of the reliability of electrical connectors

Published by: 2017-01-25 / 2017-01-25 / 55 pages

IEC TS 61586:2017 deals with the estimation of the inherent design reliability of electrical connectors through the definition and development of an appropriate accelerated testing programme. The basic intrinsic degradation mechanisms of connectors, which are those mechanisms which exist as a result of the materials and geometries chosen for the connector design, are reviewed to provide a context for the development of the desired test programme. While extrinsic degradation mechanisms may also significantly affect the performance of connectors, they vary widely by application and thus are not addressed in this document. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1997. This edition constitutes a technical revision. The main technical changes with regard to the previous edition are as follows: A specific “basic” testing protocol is defined which utilizes a single test group subjecting connectors to multiple stresses, Additional information is provided concerning test acceleration factors, A discussion of the limitations of providing MTTF/MTBF estimates for connectors has been added and the bibliography has been expanded.

Key words: Connectors, Reliability, Intrinsic, Extrinsic
