forewordfollowing reports of circuit breaker failures in applications where very fast trvs were determined to be the cause, and after thorough analysis of trv data gathered from all parts of the world, this guide was suggested by the ieee switchgear committee’s task force on transient recovery voltages. the task force suggested that another class of definite purpose circuit breakers was needed for fast trv applications. circuit breakers designated as definite purpose for fast transient recovery voltage rise times applications would be subjected to special fast trv parameters during both test duty 2 (30% of rated short-circuit current) and test duty 1 (7% of rated short-circuit current) trials, to demonstrate the capability to interrupt circuits characterized by fast inherent trvs. a few words of clarification are in order: • no fast t2 values or tests are proposed for fault currents greater than 30% of rated short-circuit current. • the proposed fast t2 values were chosen to meet 90% of the known fast trv circuits, but even these fast values do not meet the requirements of all fast trv applications. • a circuit breaker that would meet the requirements for definite purpose for fast trv rise times applications may or may not also meet the requirements for definite purpose circuit breakers for capacitor switching. it is the purpose of this guide to communicate the suggested values to those in the industry who are interested and who would be in a position to offer comments and suggestions for further revisions. table 1b contains values for circuit breakers designed and tested to the circuit breaker ratings contained in ansi c37.06-2000, table 1. these circuit breaker ratings have a rated voltage range factor (k) equal to 1.0. tables 2b and 3b contain values for circuit breaker ratings contained in ansi c37.06-2000, tables 2 and 3. this guide was initially approved as a “trial-use” guide in 1997. experience with the trial-use document since then has been favorable, and the document is now approved for more general use as a guide. only minor editorial revisions have been made to the guide, plus suitable revisions to the text of this “foreword.” scopethis guide is issued as a supplement to c37.06 for high-voltage circuit breaker applications where the transient recovery voltages (trv) rise to the crest value much more rapidly than those specified in ansi c37.06: table 1, preferred ratings for indoor circuit breakers with voltage range factor k=1.0; table 2, preferred ratings for outdoor circuit breakers 72.5 kv and below; or table 3, preferred ratings for outdoor circuit breakers rated 123 kv and above. 2

foreword(this foreword is not part of amencan national standard c57.12.55-1987.)the high voltage apparatus coordinating committee (hvacc) was established july 24, 1972 by the electrical and electronic technical advisory board (now superseded by the electrical and electronic standards management board) of the american national standards institute. the responsibility assigned to hvacc was to review and evaluate existing american national standards and other related standards for the purpose of developing a “draft standard” for unit substations and to develop recommendations for (1) correlating requirements of these standards and (2) adding requirements to these standards appropriate for product evaluation.this standard results from the evaluation of existing american national standards and the need to add requirements to these standards for the evaluation and conformance certification of dry-type transformers. this document refers to the proposed revision of american national standard for dry-type transformers, ansi/ieee c57.12.01-1979 (now in preparation).this document includes appendixes a and b, outlining procedures recommended for qualifying insulation systems; related material is covered in american national standard test for thermal evaluation of insulation systems for ventilated dry-type power and distribution transformers, ansi/ieee c57.12.56-1984.this standard is not intended to cover application, installation, or operation of dry-type transformers.transformers certified under this standard may contain accessories necessary for installation. for the conformance requirements for such accessories, reference should be made to the american national standard for each specific accessory involved. typical accessories of a pad-mounted installation are fuses, lightning arresters, circuit breakers, motor starter controls, and the like. suggestions for improvement of this standard will be welcome. they should be sent to the national electrical manufacturers association, 2101 l street, nw, suite 300, washington, dc 20037.this standard describes certain electrical, mechanical, and safety requirements and conformance tests for dry-type distribution and power transformers and for autotransformers. these transformers may be either single-phase or polyphase, with ventilated, nonventilated, or scaled enclosures.such transformers may be remotely or integrally associated with primary or secondary switchgear or substations, or both. the range of transformers is 601 volts through 34 500 volts (either primary or secondary) in sizes of 1 kva through 2 500 kva. such transformers are intended to be installed in accordance with the americannational standard national electrical code (ansi/nfpa 70-1987). all manufacturers seeking certification under this standard should demonstrate that performance requirements have been met by perfoming the tests herein, by submitting data from earlier tests, by exhibiting proof of satisfactory field service, or by an appropriate combination of these methods. families of insulation systems may be certified on the basis of tests performed on one representative model.
foreword(this foreword is not a part of ansi/ieee c57.12.56-1986, ieee standard test procedure for thermal evaluation of insulation systems for ventilated dry-type power and distribution transformers.)this standard was developed to provide a method for evaluating insulation systems for ventilated dry-type transformers with high-voltage ratings greater than 600 v. since the procedures contained herein are new, experience factors may require future revision.the working group that developed this standard used aiee 65-1956, the proposed test for thermal evaluation of ventilated dry-type power and distribution transformers, as a starting point. new materials and coil-design techniques necessitated a revision of the procedure to recognize such factors as layer insulation, higher impulse withstand capabilities, and new organic, high-temperature insulations. this standard describes methods that take the new materials and processes into account.the working group was unable to define an existing insulation system to use as a control for comparison with an insulation system under test; therefore, an arbitrary extrapolation criteria of 40 000 h was selected for the evaluation. the working group urges the dry-type transformer industry to report results of tests using this standard to provide a basis for future improvement.the working group considered aging under voltage stresses which might cause partial discharge but ruled it out since present transformer designs are generally made to be as free of partial discharges as practical.the working group considered a vibration and shock procedure as one of the aging factors. so little information is published regarding the effects of vibration and shock in high-voltage insulation systems that it was impossible to include it in this standard. the working group urges the industry to report procedures and results of testing insulation systems with vibration and shock so that revisions of this standard may incorporate these factors, if they are found to be significant.this standard relates voltage withstand end-point criteria to the impulse voltage distribution within the coil or to the initial-voltage withstand of the coil. a relationship between impulse withstand of the insulation and short-term 60 hz withstand is identified so that 50/60 hz testing of model coils is possible. acknowledgement and thanks are extended to those who have so freely given their time and knowledge and have conducted experimental work on which this standard is based.this standard was developed by a working group of the dry-type transformer subcommittee of the ieee transformer committee of the ieee power engineering society. this standard is intended to establish a uniform method for determining the temperature classification of ventilated dry-type power and distribution transformer insulation systems by test rather than by chemical composition. these insulation systems are intended for use in transformers listed in ansi c57.12.50-1981 1 and ansi c57.12.51-1981 , and whose highest voltages exceed nominal 600 v. note — in this standard, the term transformer shall be considered to mean ventilated dry-type transformer unless qualified by other descriptive terms.
this standard specifies u.s. consensus standard methods and instrumentation and test facilities requirements for measurement of radio frequency (rf) signals and noise emitted from unlicensed wireless devices (also called unlicensed transmitters, intentional radiators, and license-exempt transmitters) operating in the frequency range 9 khz to 231 ghz. it does not include generic or product-specific emission limits. it also does not cover measurement of radio emissions from unintentional radiators, as mentioned in 1.2. where possible, the specifications herein are harmonized with other national and international standards used for similar purposes. uses of the word shall in this standard indicate a mandatory requirement that must be met to satisfy this standard. the word should is used to indicate that a requirement is recommended but not mandatory. tolerances on dimensions and distances are based on good engineering practice where not specified. the word may is used to indicate a recommendation that is at the discretion of the user. in addition, notes in this document are informative and are not part of the requirements. in this standard, the text takes precedence over the figures because the text is complete and the figures are illustrative of a typical application of the text. notes are used in the text for emphasis or to offer informative suggestions about the technical content of the standard, and provide additional information to assist the reader with a particular passage, but they do not include mandatory requirements. footnotes in text are included only for information, clarification, and/or aid applicable to the use of the standard, but mandatory requirements are not included in text footnotes. measurement methods are provided for radiated and conducted emissions that can be generated by a variety of devices, as described in 1.2. definitions are provided for terms and phrases contained in the text, in which the words do not represent obvious or common usage. in most cases, measurement instrumentation and calibration requirements are only generally characterized in deference to standards dedicated to these subjects, which should be used in conjunction with this standard. requirements for operation of test samples during measurements are presented for devices in general, as well as for specific types of devices that are frequently measured. specific requirements for emission test data recording and reporting are presented with reference to general requirements contained in documents dedicated to standard laboratory practices, which should be used in conjunction with this standard. the main text is augmented by a series of annexes that provide details for certain measurement methods and facilities. purpose and applications various unlicensed wireless devices (also known as unlicensed transmitters, intentional radiators, and license-exempt transmitters) are subject to certain regulatory requirements. the primary way to show compliance in meeting regulatory requirements is by testing such devices in a repeatable and reproducible manner. this standard presents the methods of measurement to show compliance with the technical specifications for the majority of current wireless devices in wide use. it represents a consolidation and elucidation of procedures that were heretofore dispersed throughout many documents. it is not expected that all unlicensed wireless devices on the market will in fact be covered by this standard. this standard does not consider test methods for unlicensed wireless devices already covered in other published standards, such as unlicensed personal communication services devices, which are covered in ansi c63.17-2006 [b3].1 procedures for evaluating dynamic frequency selection (dfs) functionality (i.e., required for u-nii devices in the united states) and for television-band unlicensed wireless devices2 are not addressed in this standard. this standard also does not cover measurement of emissions from radio receivers, the receiver portion of a transceiver, and other types of unintentional radiators, which are covered by other standards (e.g., ansi c63.4).3 this standard does not cover other types of unintentional radiators (e.g., industrial, scientific, and medical (ism) equipment). in addition, many types of unlicensed wireless devices are also subject to regulatory requirements concerning human exposure to rf energy; rf exposure conformity assessment methods are not considered in this standard but are the subject of other standards (e.g., ieee std 1528tm-2003 [b37]). this document provides standard test methods for determining compliance with regulatory requirements for many types of unlicensed wireless devices. these unlicensed wireless devices include, but are not limited to, the following: — remote control and security unlicensed wireless devices — frequency hopping and direct sequence spread spectrum devices — digital transmission system devices — antipilferage devices — cordless telephones — radio frequency identification (rfid) tag readers — unlicensed national information infrastructure devices — intrusion detectors — unlicensed wireless devices operating below 30 mhz — wireless (garage) door openers — ultra-wideband (uwb) devices — automatic vehicle identification systems — inductive devices clause 2 and clause 3 contain the normative references and definitions used in this standard, respectively. clause 4 provides the specifications for the necessary test instrumentation needed for performing compliance testing. clause 5 provides the general requirements for all standard test methods. clause 6 provides standard test methods required for most unlicensed wireless devices. clause 7, clause 8 (fm band devices), clause 9 (millimeter-wave devices), clause 10 (ultra-wideband devices), clause 11 (dts devices), clause 12 (u-nii devices), clause 13 (devices using antenna arrays), and clause 14 (devices with multiple outputs) identify additional tests or requirements for specific types of unlicensed wireless devices. clause 15 specifies requirements for reporting test results. annex a is an informative listing of the tests required to determine compliance of a specific unlicensed wireless device and gives examples of regulatory band-edge requirements for various unlicensed wireless devices. because annex a describes regulatory requirements for testing of unlicensed wireless devices, it serves as a key to use of this standard. annex b is an informative example of the information to be included in a test report. annex c is an informative discussion on instrumentation pulse desensitization considerations. annex d provides information about detector types and functions used in emc testing. annex e provides information about measurements above 1 ghz from an instrumentation perspective. annex f is an informative discussion on broadband measurements. annex g provides guidelines for effective radiated power (erp) and equivalent isotropically radiated power (eirp) measurements. annex h discusses the rationale for making radiated emission measurements using two different methods. annex i discusses site considerations for measuring inductive-loop devices below 1 mhz. annex j provides details of an alternative procedure for determining compliance of unlicensed fm transmitters. finally, annex k and annex l provide an informative glossary and a bibliography, respectively. use of the annexes and clauses applicable to an unlicensed wireless device under test allows users of this standard to determine compliance of a device with regulatory requirements. however, any test procedure identified for use by the national regulatory authority that differs from the provisions of this standard shall take precedence. numbered cross-references used throughout this standard refer to either a specific clause or subclause of this standard; for example, 6 refers to clause 6, 6.2 refers to subclause 6.2, and a.2 refers to subclause a.2 of annex a. not all clauses in this standard are applicable to all devices that can be measured with these methods. the nature of this standard is to specify general methods that can be applied to all devices within its scope and to supplement these methods with particular requirements for some types of devices. device-specific requirements take precedence over general requirements. see annex a for guidance in applying this standard to specific types of devices. this document covers measurement methodologies but is not intended to describe regulatory limits. as new measurement methods mature, this standard will be amended or a follow-up standard will be developed to present the new methods. it is also expected that the asc c63® committee that developed this standard will provide a forum for test laboratories, manufacturers, and government agencies to determine the need for additions and amendments of this standard to accommodate new wireless devices in the future. 1 the numbers in brackets correspond to those of the bibliography in annex l. 2 television-band unlicensed wireless devices are covered in 47 cfr part 15 subpart h. 3 information on references can be found in clause 2.
