Applying IEC standards to Industrial Power Distribution Systems and Equipment
North American and Pacific Rim engineers with ANSI/NEMA background who need to work with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Standards will encounter many sources of misunderstandings and pitfalls:
- misinterpretation of the applicable standards due to partial understanding,
- confusion by applying concepts of another standards system to IEC equipment,
- using values which have a different meaning in another standards system,
- incomplete specifications leading to incorrect options taken by manufacturers,
- using obsolete standards.
This Application Guide discusses these points in a “tutorial handout”-style from the general perspective looking down at the detailed equipment concerned.
You can select the whole guide or only the parts you are interested in.
