BS EN 61071:2007 - Capacitors for power electronics

BS EN 61071:2007

Capacitors for power electronics

Status : Current, Work in hand   Published : February 2008
Conformity to regulation : Designated



This International Standard applies to capacitors for power electronics applications. The operating frequency of the systems in which these capacitors are used is usually up to 15kHz, while the pulse frequencies may be up to 5 to 10 times the operating frequency. The standard distinguishes between a.c. and d.c. capacitors which are considered as components when mounted in enclosures. This standard covers an extremely wide range of capacitor technologies for numerous applications, e.g. overvoltage protection, d.c. and a.c. filtering, switching circuits, d.c. energy storage, auxiliary inverters, etc.
