Title: Surge Protection in Low-Voltage AC Power Circuits - An Anthology Part 2: Development of Standards - Reality Checks
Published: March 01, 2002
Abstract: Part 2 of a multi-part anthology. The previously published papers collected in this Part 2 were written primarily as contributions to the development of IEEE and IEC Standards on surges in low-voltage AC power circuits. The papers report the results of measurements pointing out some contraditions between the stresses implied by proposed standards and the satisfactory field performance of devices.
