1 Scope and object

This part of IEC 61215 lays down IEC requirements for the design qualification and type approval of terrestrial photovoltaic (PV) modules suitable for long-term operation in general open-air climates, as defined in IEC 60721-2-1. This standard is intended to apply to all terrestrial flat plate module materials such as crystalline silicon module types as well as thin-film modules.

This standard does not apply to modules used with concentrated sunlight although it may be utilized for low concentrator modules (1 to 3 suns). For low concentration modules, all tests are performed using the current, voltage and power levels expected at the design concentration.

This standard does not address the particularities of PV modules with integrated electronics, it may however be used as a basis for testing such PV modules.

The objective of this test sequence is to determine the electrical and thermal characteristics of the module and to show, as far as possible within reasonable constraints of cost and time, that the module is capable of withstanding prolonged exposure in climates described in the scope. The actual lifetime expectancy of modules so qualified will depend on their design, their environment and the conditions under which they are operated.

1    Scope

1.1            

This Standard describes the RIDM process. This process assists in addressing, among other things, the following:

a)  evaluation of options, including design;

b)  decision making to support operations, maintenance, and operability assessments;

c)  fitness for service criteria;

d)  inspection plans for Structures, Systems and Components (SSCs);

e)  periodic safety reviews;

f)  post-event (e.g., seismic event) actions;

g)  resource allocation; and

h)  dealing with discovery issues.

The RIDM process may be used to support security and safeguards related decisions but this Standard does not address these.

This Standard is not meant to replace existing risk management processes.

1.2            

This Standard applies to nuclear power plants. This Standard may also be used by other nuclear facilities.

1.3            

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

1 Scope

1.1
This Standard specifies photometric performance requirements for luminaires that are used for roadway and street lighting applications as a function of unit power density (UPD).

1.2
The following light sources are addressed in this Standard:

a) Clear HPS lamp

b) Clear metal halide lamp

d) LED

1.3
This Standard is based on

a) Average luminance, luminance uniformity ratio, and veiling luminance ratio as defined in ANSI/IES RP-8;

b) Nominal input power in watts for HID sources;

c) Rated lamp lumens for HID sources;

d) Relative photometry for HID sources as per IES LM 63 and IES LM 31

e) Luminaire input power in watts and rated luminaire lumens for LED sources and does not include constant light output (CLO) applications; and

f) Absolute photometry for LED sources as per IES LM 79.

 

1.4
This Standard is not a design document, and is intended to establish luminaire photometric performance efficiency only, based upon typical roadway configuration

Tables 4, 5, and 6 are intended to be used to establish maximum unit power density (UPD) values for typical applications as per the parameters listed in Table 1. UPD values provided in this Standard are not intended for specification or application purposes.

User specific road geometries could differ from the templates used in the creation of these tables.   Requirements of specific designs may necessitate different variations in distribution, lumen packages and wattages.  Users should review UPD as a measure of comparison across suppliers, within their own geometry, and should note that UPD levels will then vary from the tables within this standard. 

Notes:

a) The UPD values for all luminaires in Tables 4, 5 and 6 do not include ballast or driver losses and ballast factor (BF). The UPD values for all applications include a light loss factor of 1 (LLF = 1).

b) For site specific installations, it is the responsibility of designers to select the optimal combination of fixture type, pole height, spacing and appropriate light loss factor to ensure an optically efficient design. For guidance on design, see ANSI/IES RP-8.

1.5
In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

1.6
The values given in SI (metric) units are the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
