Reference EN 60555-3:1987
Title Disturbances in supply systems caused by household appliances and similar electrical equipment - Part 3: Voltage fluctuations
Project Number 4348
Abstract/Scope This standard is applicable to electrical and electronic equipment for household and similar use, intended to be connected to low-voltage a.c. distribution systems of the following types: nominal voltages up to 240 V, single-phase, two or three wire; nominal voltages up to 415 V, three-phase, three or four wire; nominal frequency 50 Hz or 60 Hz. Examples of electrical equipment to which this standard applies are appliances for cooking and heating, motor-operated or magnetically driven appliances, and portable tools. This standard is not applicable to: equipment subject to notification to or consent by the supply authority before connection to the system (consent by the supply authority may be requested for high-power appliances which are intended to be used only in systems having impedances considerably lower than the reference impedance. General consent may be declared for use of a type of appliance in a defined part of the supply system) : equipment intended exclusively for professional purposes; appliances and equipment without automatic control means; appliances producing less than one voltage change per hour; appliances producing more than 1800 voltage changes per minute; disturbances caused by manual switching

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
