EN 50124-2-2001 pdf download.Railway applications – Insulation coordination Part 2 : Overvoltages and related protection.
This EN 50124-2 applies to:
— Fixed installations (downstream the secondary of the substation transformer) and rolling stock equipment linked to the contact line of one of the systems defined in EN 50163;
— Rolling stock equipment linked to a train line.
This standard gives simulation and/or test requirements for protection against transient overvoltages of such equipment.
Long-term overvoltages are not treated in this document.

3 Definitions
For the purpose of this standard, the following definitions apply:
NOTE The definitions are in accordance with those of EN 50163 see also annex A), Long-term, meaium-term and snort-term overvoltages are equivalent to respectively temporary, switching and lightning overvoltages defined in HD 625.1 Si
(IEC 60664-1).
any voltage having a peak value exceeding the corresponding peak value of maximum steady-state voltage at normal operating conditions [IEC 60664-1]
long-term overvoltage
an overvoltage at relatively long duration due to voltage variations
NOTE A long-term overvoltage is independent of the network load. It is characterized by a voltage/time curve.
transient overvoltage
A short duration overvoltage of a few milliseconds or less due to current transfer
NOTE A transient overvoltage depends on the network load. It cannot be characterised by a voltage/time curve. Basically, a transient overvoltage is the result of a current transfer from a source to the load (network).
medium-term overvoltage
the transient overvoltage at any point of the system due to specific switching operation or fault
[IEC 60664-1]
short-term overvoltage
the transient overvoltage at any point of the system due to a specific lightning discharge
set of conductors fulfilling a certain function, the overvoltages of which are likely to damage the equipment they are connected to
4 Contact line network
The provisions of this clause 4 do not take into account rapid transient overvoltages in the multimegahertz range such as generated by operation of vacuum circuit breakers which may require a specific overvoltage protection.
4.1 Equipment not protected by a metal-oxide arrester
If the equipment is not protected by a metal-oxide arrester, the protection against overvoltages shall take into account overvoltages limited only by the intrinsic isolation of the contact line and the possible presence of other types of arrester or spark gaps.
4.2 Equipment protected by a metal-oxide arrester
If the supplier wants to benefit from the presence of a metal-oxide arrester for reducing constraints resulting from 4.1, he shall perform a simulation of the behaviour of the protection against overvoltages.
The circuits of the protected equipment likely to modify the electrical behaviour of the protection shall also be simulated.
The equipment shall withstand the pulses thereunder defined in 4.2.1 and 4.2.2, where the values of the reference voltage U are defined in Table 1.
4.2.1 Simulation for long pulse
The long pulse is a voltage pulse of trapezoidal shape, lasting 2 milliseconds with an amplitude equal to 70 % of the reference voltage U. It is applied to the equipment without considering the presence of its metal-oxide arrester.
4.2.2 SimulatIon for short pulse
The short pulse is the 4/10 current pulse defined in EN 60099-4.
Its amplitude value is 100 kA.
It is applied to the equipment including the arrester, where the metal-oxide arrester is replaced by a theoretical one the characteristic of which, in log(current in kA) versus Iog(voltage in ky)1 is a straight line which includes the two points:
(log(10), log(U)) and (log(100), Iog(1.5 Un)).
NOTE The safety margin 1,5 U takes into account residual voltages of the surge arrester at lightning impulse currents higher than 10 kA. induced voltage drops along the arrester and the connection lines and voltage increases due to travelling wave effects on the line between the surge arrester and the equipment.
5 Train line network
5.1 Equipment not protected by a metal-oxide arrester
If the equipment is not protected by a metal-oxide arrester, UIC 550 shall be applied.
5.2 Equipment protected by a metal-oxide arrester
If the equipment is protected by a metal-oxide arrester, the values of UIC 550 may be limited according to the characteristics of the metal-oxide arrester.
In case of connection of several arresters to the train line, it shall be ascertained that their cascading will not lead to damages.EN 50124-2-2001 pdf download.
