ITIC Curve – Voltage Disturbance

curbe Due to the importance of the previous CBEMA curve, a working group and several sponsors undertook the task of revising the curve based on actual test results. As can be seen this is mainly a flat line as anything out of this range can affect equipment function through under-voltage cbeka it not to run and overvoltage causing failures.

The CBEMA curve is a susceptibility profile with t he abscissa horizontal axis representing the duration of the event, while the ordinate vertical axis indicates the percent of voltage applied to the power circuit. It is not intended to serve as a design specification for products or AC distribution systems.

The intent was to derive a curve that can better reflect the performance of typical single-phase, V, 60 Hz computers and their peripherals, and other information technology items like fax machines, copiers and point-of-sales terminals. This range is those deviations with extremely sharp rise and fall times deviate from and then return to cema normal waveform extremely quickly. Throughout the next 20 years that the original version was published, it grew in stature from a simple curve describing the performance of mainframe computer equipment PCs cutve not availableto a curve that was used to define everything from specification criteria for electronic equipment to the basis of power quality performance contracts between electric utilities and large industrial customers.

Due to missing records of articles, the volume display may be incomplete, even though the whole journal is available at TIB.

I have been working in an electric distribution utility for more than a decade. This file has been identified as being free of known restrictions under copyright law, including all related and neighboring rights.

SEMI F47 does not address product quality and the purpose of the standard is to keep the equipment running without any operator intervention when exposed to voltage sags above the tolerance curve. However, there is one thing that timing does not take into account and that is the energy released during such an event, energy usually being measured in Joules.


Electrical Construction and Maintenance. Transient is assumed to occur near the peak of the nominal voltage vbema. If ITE is subjected to such conditions, damage may result. During a power system disturbance, like a voltage sag, swell cuurve a transient voltage for example, the DC bus voltage could go very low or very high and in turn affect the reliable operation of the ITE equipment.

The third the amplitude and duration of the transient that occurs as the short lets go. You state “the CBEMA curve shows that voltage levels of even zero can be tolerated for a very brief period of time – 4.

Voltage Disturbance

High-Frequency Impulse and Ringwave This region describes the transients that typically occur as a result of lightning strikes. What is therefore called for are tolerance curves for each device that requires mains. On the other hand, voltages below the envelope are assumed to cause the load to drop out due to lack of energy. The normal functional state of the ITE is not typically expected during these conditions, but no damage to the ITE should result.

This transient typically results from the occurrence and subsequent clearing of faults in the AC distribution curbe.

Changes occurring faster than this e. However, developing a single power acceptability curve to capture all these possible scenarios is nearly impractical. View my complete profile. It is felt that equipment fitted with a filter should be able to withstand greater deviations the shorter the timing of the deviation.

Voltage sags occur when then there is some fault on the system or during starting of large loads motors etc. Some of which are unequal ground potentials, Electromagnetic Noise Interference etc. This is because the curve is generally applicable to other equipment containing solid-state devices aside from being specifically applicable to computer-type equipment.

Moreover, the CBEMA curve shows that voltage levels of even zero can be tolerated for a very brief period of time – 4. The primary part of this area is the effects of supply variations on the smoothing capacitor.


Course reserves Setting up a course reserve Form for setting up a course reserve. The rectified DC is stored in the bus capacitor. SEMI F is the specification for Semiconductor Processing Equipment voltage sag immunity originally published in year and updated in All the highlighted causes of voltage sag events will have to be considered if one is to develop a meaningful power acceptability curve for three phase systems.

Any voltages in this range may be present for an indefinite period and are a function of the normal loadings and losses in the distribution system. Those that exceed the limits then indicating that possible, as well as what type of damage has occurred.

Prohibited Region This region includes any surge or swells, which exceeds the upper limit of the envelope. Call it by the device’s name if there is no name for it, but stop calling it ‘modified’.

This file contains additional information such as Exif metadata which may have been added by the digital camera, scanner, or software program used to create or digitize it.

Newer Post Older Post Home. These two limits, therefore, represent the wide input voltage range most SMPSs now comfortably operate on. This could include thyristor controlled heaters, some digital clocks etc.

The curve describes both steady state and transitory conditions. Electrical schemas Diagrams about science Diagrams in English.

Many will try to use one point to indicate a complicated disturbance. Graph below shows a voltage sag event followed by recovery followed by another voltage sag.

One of the most effective ways to prepare for optimum operation of sensitive electronic equipment is to understand and use the Computer Business Equipment Manufacturers Association CBEMA curve and related guidelines. Voltage sags, dropouts, and steady state voltages in this region are not expected to damage the ITE equipment. Limit the search to the library catalogue. The standard has been implemented by essentially all semiconductor fabs and has been a huge cost saver for the industry.

This region of the curve deals with both amplitude and duration energyrather than RMS amplitude. Generally, these transients result from application of heavy loads, as well as fault conditions, at various points in the AC distribution system.
