    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    AS NZS 3010 2017 specifies requirements for minimum safety requirements related to the use of generating sets for the supply of electricity at voltages normally exceeding 50 V a.c. or 120 V d.c.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out the minimum safety requirements related to the use of generating sets for the supply of electricity at low voltage, that is, not exceeding 1000 V a.c or 1500 V d.c.The Standard applies to electricity generating sets that are driven by internal combustion engines, and forms any of the following:(a) Normal supply source for electrical installations.(b) Alternative supply source for electrical installations.(c) Electrical supply source for the connection of electrical appliances and portable tools.(d) Supply sources that operate in parallel with the normal supply in the electrical installation.This Standard does not—(i) apply to uninterruptible power supplies; or(ii) apply to other renewable energy generation systems, such as, the following:(A) Inverters.(B) Photovoltaic arrays.(C) Water or wind driven turbines.NOTE: While intended to be applied to low voltage generating sets driven by internal combustion engines, the electrical principles could be applied to other types of energy sources.
