IEC 60034-18-42:2017+A1:2020 defines criteria for assessing the insulation system of stator/rotor windings of single or polyphase AC machines which are subjected to repetitive impulse voltages, such as those generated by pulse width modulation (PWM) converters, and are expected to experience and withstand partial discharge activity during service. It specifies electrical qualification tests on representative specimens to verify fitness for operation with voltage-source converters. It also describes an additional classification system which defines the limits of reliable performance under converter-fed conditions. This consolidated version consists of the first edition (2017) and its amendment 1 (2020). Therefore, no need to order amendment in addition to this publication.
