    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    IEC 60071-2:2018 RLV contains both the official IEC International Standard and its Redline version. The Redline version is available in English only and provides you with a quick and easy way to compare all the changes between the official IEC Standard and its previous edition.
    IEC 60071-2:2018 constitutes application guidelines and deals with the selection of insulation levels of equipment or installations for three-phase electrical systems. It gives guidance for the determination of the rated withstand voltages for ranges I and II of IEC 60071-1 and to justify the association of these rated values with the standardized highest voltages for equipment. It covers three-phase systems with nominal voltages above 1 kV. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:

    a) the annex on clearance in air to assure a specified impulse withstand voltage installation is deleted because the annex in IEC 60071-1 is overlapped;

    b) 4.2 and 4.3 on surge arresters are updated;

    c) 4.3.5 on very-fast-front overvoltages is revised. Annex J on insulation co-ordination for very-fast-front overvoltages in UHV substations is added;

    d) Annex H on atmospheric correction – altitude correction is added.

    e) Annex I on evaluation method of non-standard lightning overvoltage shape is added.
    It has the status of a horizontal standard in accordance with IEC Guide 108.
