International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference HD 597 S1:1992
Title Coupling capacitors and capacitor dividers
Project Number 546
Abstract/Scope Applies to coupling capacitors for power line carrier systems on high voltage overhead power lines, to capacitor dividers of capacitor voltage transformers, to capacitors with one terminal either permanently earthed or at low voltages as used for over-voltage protection and other similar uses. Formulates safety rules, uniform rules regarding performance, testing and rating; it also provides a guide for installation and operation.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
