|Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) – Limits for harmonic current emissions for equipment with input current > 16 A per phase
Deals with the emission of disturbances due to harmonics, applicable to both electrical and electronic equipment with a rated input current exceeding 16 A per phase and intended to be connected to public low-voltage a.c. distribution systems of nominal voltage 230 V, single-phase and nominal frequency 50 Hz. Tests according to this Tanzania Standard are type tests of complete pieces of equipment, for example a speed variable fan, and not of components, for example a converter. Connection of this equipment to the supply generally requires special agreement between the supply authority and the consumer. This consent will depend upon several factors including the expected levels of disturbance caused by the equipment and th e actual situation at the connection point to the power supply system. These recommendations specify the information required to enable a supply authority to assess equipment regarding harmonic disturbance and to decide whether or not the equipment is acceptable for connection with regard to the harmonic distortion aspect.
