Language in which you want to receive the document.


This European Standard specifies the requirements for the performance of all fixed installations
electronic power converters, using controllable and/or non-controllable electronic valves,
intended for traction power supply.
The devices can be controlled by means of current, voltage or light. Non-bistable devices are
assumed to be operated in the switched mode.
This European Standard applies to fixed installations of following electric traction systems:
− railways,
− guided mass transport systems such as: tramways, light rail systems, elevated and
underground railways, mountain railways, trolleybusses.
This European Standard does not apply to
− cranes, transportable platforms and similar transportation equipment on rails,
− suspended cable cars,
− funicular railways.
This European Standard applies to diode rectifiers, controlled rectifiers, inverters and frequency
The equipment covered in this European Standard is the converter itself.
