ISO 8528-13:2016 specifies the safety requirements for reciprocating internal combustion (RIC) engine driven generating sets up to 1 000 V consisting of an RIC engine, an alternating current (AC) generator including the additional equipment required for operating, e.g. controlgear, switchgear, auxiliary equipment.
It is applicable to generating sets for land and marine use (domestic, recreational and industrial application). It is not applicable to generating sets used on board of seagoing vessels and mobile offshore units as well as on aircraft or to propel road vehicles and locomotives.
NOTE This part of ISO 8528 does not apply to arc welding equipment (IEC 60974 series).
The special requirements needed to cover operation in potentially explosive atmospheres are not covered in this part of ISO 8528.
The hazards relevant to RIC engine driven generating sets are identified in Annex A.
ISO 8528-13:2016 deals with the special requirements of test and safety design which should be observed in addition to the definitions and requirements in ISO 8528-1, ISO 8528-2, ISO 8528-3, ISO 8528-4, ISO 8528-5 and ISO 8528-6, where applicable. It specifies safety requirements in order to protect the user from danger.
