IEC 60831-2:2014 – Shunt Power Capacitors of the Self-Healing Type for A.C. Systems Having a Rated Voltage Up to and Including 1,000 V – Part 2: Ageing Test, Self-Healing Test and Destruction Test
08/18/2014

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has published IEC 60831-2:2014, “Shunt Power Capacitors of the Self-Healing Type for A.C. Systems Having a Rated Voltage Up to and Including 1,000 V – Part 2: Ageing Test, Self-Healing Test and Destruction Test.” The new standard is available in the IEC’s webstore here.

“IEC 60831-2:2014 applies to capacitors according to IEC 60831-1 and gives the requirements for the ageing test, self-healing test and destruction test for these capacitors.”

“This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 1995. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:

  • Updating of the normative references;
  • Discharge cycles before ageing test carried out at ambient temperature;
  • Alternative self-healing test at d.c. voltage;
  • Modified acceptance conditions after self-healing test;
  • Modifications to destruction test.”
