Voltage Disturbance

A lightning strike, even when reasonably nearby, will often not damage equipment. Computers, programmable logic cugve, distributed processing units, instrumentation, and other sensitive solid-state systems are voltage and time sensitive. Furthermore, it must not be forgotten that the older mains transformer is also a rather large inductor dbema by rectifiers and storage cap and such a curve is therefore also applicable to older power supplies. Power Quality in Electrical Systems.

Because the filter attenuates high frequencies in one direction, it will do so the opposite way. I can see about five separate points on the curve appearing to indicate the full extent of the incident.

ITIC Curve – Voltage Disturbance

Electrical schemas Diagrams about science Diagrams in English. For further questions please contact our TIB customer service. In other words, t he concept is that if the supply voltage stays within the acceptable power area then the sensitive equipment will operate well. Hope you’ll be able to view it, as I want everybody to like my site I have been working in an electric distribution utility for more than a decade. What is not realized is there are many disturbances that require multiple plots on the curve.

The CBEMA curve is only one of many ‘tolerance curves’ within industry it specifically designed as a measure of compatibility for IT equipment. Tolerance curves as a means to test the quality of supply versus equipment susceptibility are perfect. The magnitude of transient is expressed as a percentage of the peak of 60Hz nominal voltage not the RMS value. They are very much ‘grey areas’ where one needs to consider the effect of the disturbance and define it accordingly.

Changes occurring faster than this e. The third the amplitude and duration of the transient that occurs as the short lets go. Voltage sags, dropouts, and steady state voltages in this region are not expected to damage the ITE equipment. The sharper the deviation, the higher the frequency.

The front end of the switched mode power chrve has a bridge rectifier that rectifies the incoming AC to DC. As long as the sustained voltage stays within the specified range, things work well.

The frequency of transient may range from Hz to 5KHz. In the world of VAC that’s a whole 1kV approxand that’s kind of large!

Steady State Voltage Variation. Measurements are at 15kV PCC point. This transient could occur during a temporary fault in the power system followed by clearing of the fault.

These two filters, between them, will establish the devices susceptibility to variations in the mains waveform – and the susceptibility is dependent on distortion vs. You state “the CBEMA curve shows that voltage levels of even zero can be tolerated for a very brief period of time – 4.


The higher the frequency, the higher the attenuation. Power Quality in Electrical Systems. After some minor modifications to the proposal, the ESC-3 working group approved this initial version of the curve, which remained unchanged until early in Also, it is used as a reference to define the withstand capability cbeema various crve and devices for protection from power quality problems.

Table of contents — Volume 90, Issue 10 Show all volumes and issues Tables of content are generated automatically and are based on records of articles contained that cbe,a available in the TIB-Portal index.

Voltage sags occur when then there is some fault on the system or during starting of large loads motors etc. Power Systems Engineering Research Center. Other voltages are not specifically part of this and it is the responsibility of the user to verify that the curve is applied correctly at other voltages. Their timing falls anywhere between extended lightning strikes through to switching glitches transformer tap changes etc.

So we have presented two needs for a tolerance curve, both as the means to test a supply with the difference being before and after installation.

Alsothe association designed the curve to point out ways in which system reliability could be provided for electronic equipment.
