This part of IEC 62282 is a product safety standard suitable for conformity assessment as stated in IEC Guide 104:1997, ISO/IEC Guide 51:1999 and ISO/IEC Guide 7:1994.
This standard applies to stationary packaged, self-contained fuel cell power systems or fuel cell power systems comprised of factory matched packages of integrated systems which generate electricity through electrochemical reactions.
This standard applies to:
– systems intended for electrical connection to mains direct, or with a transfer switch, or to a
stand-alone power distribution system;
– systems intended to provide a.c. or d.c. power;
– systems with or without the ability to recover useful heat;
– systems intended for operation on the following input fuels:
a) natural gas and other methane rich gases derived from renewable (biomass) or fossil fuel
sources, for example, landfill gas, digester gas, coal mine gas;
b) fuels derived from oil refining, for example, diesel, gasoline, kerosene, liquefied petroleum
gases such as propane and butane;
c) alcohols, esters, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, Fischer-Tropsch liquids and other suitable
hydrogen-rich organic compounds derived from renewable (biomass) or fossil fuel sources,
for example, methanol, ethanol, di-methyl ether, biodiesel;
d) hydrogen, gaseous mixtures containing hydrogen gas, for example, synthesis gas, town
This standard does not cover
– portable fuel cell power systems;
– propulsion fuel cell power systems.
A typical stationary fuel cell power system is shown in Figure 1.
