Draft Scope/Description:

Scope: 

This part of IEC 61869 is a product standard and covers only additional requirements for low- power passive current transformers. The product standard for low-power passive current transformers comprises IEC 61869-1, together with IEC 61869-6 and this document with specific requirements.

This document is applicable to newly manufactured low-power passive current transformers with analogue output for use with electrical measuring instruments or electrical protective devices having a rated frequency from 15 Hz to 100 Hz.

This document covers low-power passive current transformers used for measurement or protection and multi-purpose low-power passive current transformers used for both measurement and protection.

Subclause 5.6.1001 covers the accuracy requirements that are necessary for low-power passive current transformers for use with electrical measuring instruments.

Subclause 5.6.1002 covers the accuracy requirements that are necessary for low-power passive current transformers for use with electrical protective relays, and particularly for forms of protection in which the prime requirement is to maintain the accuracy up to several times the rated current. If required, the transient accuracy of low-power passive current transformers during fault is also given in 5.6.1002.

Low-power passive current transformers have analogue voltage output only (for digital output or for technology using any kind of active electronic components refer to IEC 61869-82). Such low-power passive current transformers can include the secondary signal cable (transmitting cable). The principle of operation of derivative low-power passive current transformers using air-core coils (Rogowski coils) is given in Annex 10B and the principle of operation of proportional low-power passive current transformers using iron-core coils with integrated shunt is given in Annex 10C.
