protection with fuses
Information concerning the application
of EN 61558 regulations.


This standard states that the power of the transformers is calculated according to the following formula:

P(VA)=U (V) X I (A)

Thus, the following table shows the values of the fuses to be connected to the secondary circuit (output), recommended for the protection of most popular transformers:

Protection of the primary circuit. When the transformer is being connected, an excess current equivalent to approximately 25% In, will be calculated for at least 10 ms. The protection device is not to be interrupted during this initial working conditions. Therefore, and as the protection against overload is to be put on the secondary circuit, the primary one shall be protected against short-circuit risks only.

 

There are two possible type of protection devices:
- aM fuse in compliance with IEC 269
- C.m.c.b. fuse in compliance with IEC 898

 
The following table shows the protections to be applied for the primary circuit:
