Abstract

This paper focuses in the development of an electromagnetic compatibility test system for voltage dips immunity and supply current harmonic distortion. Voltage dips analysis is a complex stochastic issue, since it involves a large variety of random factors, such as: type of short circuits in the power system, location of faults, protective system performance and atmospheric discharges. On the other hand, harmonic distortion is a steady state disturbance which is caused by the rectifier employed in energy-efficient technology. This paper describes a system for voltage dips testing according to IEC 61000-4-11 norm and it also test the supply current harmonic distortion according to the limits given in IEC 61000-3-2. Results of the dips test are represented in a power acceptability curve obtained with the test levels of the norm; the harmonic distortion is represented in a bar chart compared with the IEC 61000-3-2 limits.
