Basically, the CBEMA curve was originally derived to describe the tolerance of mainframe computer business equipment to the magnitude and duration of voltage variations on the power system.

Power Systems Engineering Research Center. In this category the voltage deviation does not have to be that large, as long as the frequency is low enough for it to make it’s way through the wiring and filtering and damage what it finds in its path.

Many will try to use one point to indicate a complicated disturbance. The transient is assumed to be completely decayed by the end of half-cycle in which it occurs.

E ventually, it became a standard design target for sensitive equipment to be vurve on the power system and a common format for reporting power quality variation data. Power quality phenomena associated with powering, grounding, durve protecting solid-state devices can be measured, analyzed, and evaluated using test equipment specifically intended for digital logic systems.

Advanced Search Watchlist Search history Search help. The curve describes both steady state and transitory conditions. I handle PQ studies, power system analysis, diagnostic testing, protective relaying and capital budgeting for company projects. Hello, Thanks for sharing this info.


To the right-hand side of this sits transients, and a description of these would be they are the blighters that can cause major damage. There are many other variables that could affect the reliable operation of IT equipment.

In the center of the plot is the so called acceptable area. The magnitude of transient is expressed as a percentage of the peak of 60Hz nominal voltage not the RMS value.

ITIC Curve – Voltage Disturbance

This curve provides an AC voltage boundary that most information technology equipment ITE can tolerate or ride through without experiencing unexpected shutdowns or malfunctions. With electronics becoming more and more sensitive this could be believable especially as designers are shaving off far too much in the designs to make them more economical at the expense of robustness.

The intent is to provide an 80 Joule minimum transient immunity. Careers and apprenticeships Equal opportunities Vacancies Apprenticeships.

Voltage Disturbance

Retrieved from ” https: Low-Frequency Decaying Ringwave This region describes a decaying ringwave transient which typically results from the connection of power factor correction capacitors to cnema AC distribution system. The following other wikis use this file: If the file has been modified from its original state, some details such as the timestamp may not fully reflect those of the original file.

After installation is applicable to testing the supply of the data processing company after Williams’ Welding Works opened shop just down the road. Because the filter attenuates high cbemaa in one direction, it will do so the opposite way.

Graph below shows a voltage sag event followed by recovery followed by another voltage sag. Such ‘tightness’ is only achievable with a UPS right there next to the device!

These two limits, therefore, represent the wide input voltage cbma most SMPSs now comfortably operate on. This region of the curve deals with both amplitude and duration energyrather than RMS amplitude.

A lightning strike, even when reasonably nearby, will often not damage equipment. All the highlighted causes of voltage sag events will have to be considered if one is to develop a meaningful power acceptability curve for three phase systems. Computers, cgema logic controllers, distributed processing units, instrumentation, and other sensitive solid-state systems are voltage and time sensitive.

The cuve is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, and it may be completely wrong. The DC voltage is further converted to the required voltage and is in turn used to power the various subsystems inside the ITE equipment. In using the CBEMA curve, one must first determine the nature of the power quality disturbances that are most prevalent in a facility.

Also, it is used as a reference to define the withstand capability of various loads and devices for protection from power quality problems. Any surges or swell in this region could result in damage to the ITE equipment.
