IEEE C37.082-1982

IEEE Standard Methods for the Measurement of Sound Pressure Levels of AC Power Circuit Breakers

Guidelines for uniform measurement and reporting of sound produced by AC power circuit breakers are established. The methods are intended for measuring the sound produced by outdoor circuit breakers in a free-field environment. The methods may be used indoors or in a restricted field, provided that precautions are observed in measurement and interpretation of results. Three types of tests are described: design tests, conformance tests, and field tests. The methods are intended to provide data that can be used in evaluating the effects of circuit breaker sound on human observers, but the evaluation itself is not covered.

High-voltage Switchgear and Controlgear - Part 37-082: Standard Practice for the Measurement of Sound Pressure Levels on Alternating Current Circuit-breakers

As part of the Dual Logo Agreement between IEEE and IEC, this standard is denoted IEC/IEEE 62271-37-082. This standard provides methods for the measurement of sound pressure level produced by outdoor alternating current circuit-breakers in a free-field environment. These methods may also be used indoors or in restricted field, provided that precautions are observed in the measurement and interpretation of the results.
