Abstract

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) flicker standard 61000-4-15, which was originally proposed for 230 V/50 Hz systems in Europe and further revised with an amendment to include the necessary modifications for 120 V/60 Hz systems in North America, is becoming more internationally adopted for evaluating the flicker severity. Since the IEC flicker standard is restricted to work on systems with 230 V/50 Hz or 120 V/60 Hz, however, the IEC standard cannot be directly applied to the other power systems beyond its coverage (e.g. 220 V/60 Hz systems in South Korea). A new weighting filter derived from lamp tests, new reference points and a new performance test specification to accommodate 220 V/60 Hz systems in South Korea, complying with the IEC standard, are proposed. The proposed weighting filter, reference points and performance test specification provide a practical guide to develop flickermeters for 220 V/60 Hz systems in South Korea.
