The Trilogy Update of IEEE Std. C62.41



Francois D. Martzloff


Progress report on the restructuring of two IEEE standards concerned with surges in low-voltage a.c. power circuits into a Trilogy of three documents. First a basic Guide describes the surge environment, then a Recommended Practice proposes a limited set of representative surge waveforms for test purposes, and finally a Recommended Practice shows how to perform safe, repeatable and reliable surge tests on equipment connected to these a.c. power circuits.
