Reciprocating internal combustion engine driven generating sets - Safety
SS-EN ISO 8528-13:2016
This European Standard specifies the safety requirements for reciprocating internal combustion (RIC) engine driven generating sets up to 1 000 V consisting of a RIC engine, an alternating current (a.c.) generator including the additional equipment required for operating, e.g. controlgear, switchgear, auxiliary equipment.
This European Standard is not applicable for generating sets which are manufactured before the date of its publication as a national EN standard.
It applies to generating sets for land and marine use, excluding generating sets used on board of seagoing vessels and mobile offshore units as well as on aircraft or to propel road vehicles and locomotives. The special requirements needed to cover operation in potentially explosive atmospheres are not covered in this standard.
The hazards relevant to RIC engine driven generating sets are identified in Annex A.
