IEC 61000-4-13 Testing – Harmonics & Interharmonics

IEC 61000-4-13 defines the immunity test methods and range of recommended basic test levels for electrical and electronic equipment with rated current up to 16 A per phase at disturbance frequencies up to and including 2 kHz (for 50 Hz mains) and 2,4 kHz (for 60 Hz mains) for harmonics and interharmonics on low voltage power networks. The scope of IEC 61000-4-13 is to establish a common reference for evaluating the functional immunity of electrical and electronic equipment when subjected to harmonics and interharmonics and mains signalling frequencies. The test method documented in IEC 61000-4-13 describes a consistent method to assess the immunity of an equipment or system against a defined phenomenon.

IEC 61000-4-13 defines harmonics, interharmonics, and mains signalling (ripple control) sources.
