Draft Scope/Description:

This part of IEC 61000 is concerned with the emission of voltage changes, voltage fluctuations and flicker produced by equipment and impressed on the public low-voltage supply system. It specifies the limits of voltage changes produced by equipment tested under specified conditions. This document is primarily applicable to electrical and electronic equipment having a rated input current from 16 A up to and including 75 A, which is intended to be connected to public low-voltage distribution systems having nominal system voltages of between 220 V and 250 V, line-to-neutral at 50 Hz, and which is subject to conditional connection. This document is also applicable to equipment within the scope of IEC 61000-3-3 that does not meet the limits when tested or evaluated with reference impedance Zref and is therefore subject to
conditional connection.

Equipment which meets the requirements of IEC 61000-3-3 is excluded from this part of IEC 61000.

Equipment tests made in accordance with this document are type tests.

NOTE 1 The flicker limits specified in this document, being the same as those in IEC 61000-3-3, are based on the subjective severity of the flicker imposed on the light from 230 V/60 W coiled-coil filament lamps 

when subjected to fluctuations of the supply voltage. For systems with nominal voltages less than 220 V,
line-to-neutral and/or frequency of 60 Hz, the limits and reference circuit values are under consideration.

NOTE 2 The limits in this document relate to the voltage changes experienced by consumers connected at the interface between the public supply low-voltage network and the equipment user’s installation.
Therefore, it cannot be guaranteed that the users of equipment compliant with this standard will not experience supply disturbance within their own installation due to the operation of this equipment alone, as the impedance at the point of connection of the equipment to the supply within the installation can have an impedance greater than the maximum permissible impedance as determined by the procedures in this document.
