Reconfirmed by: AS/NZS 4509.2:2010 Rec:2017 Stand-alone power systems, Part 2: System design
The objective of this Standard is to provide information for the design of stand-alone power systems used for the supply of extra-low and low voltage electric power.
The following changes have been made to AS 4509.2—2002 in producing this edition:
(a) The Standard is now joint with Standards New Zealand.
(b) Basic design of a.c. bus systems has been included.
(c) Referenced documents have been updated and the presentation has been brought into line with current style.
The term ‘informative’ has been used in this Standard to define the application of the appendix to which it applies. An ‘informative’ appendix is for information and guidance.
