IEC 62391-2:2006 applies to electric double-layer capacitors for power application. Electric double-layer capacitors for power are intended for applications that require discharge currents in the range from mA to A. The characteristics of the capacitors include such performance as relatively high capacitance and low internal resistance, which is applicable to Class 3 of the measurement classification specified in IEC 62391-1. The object of this standard is to prescribe preferred ratings and characteristics and to select from IEC 62391-1 the appropriate quality assessment procedures, tests and measuring methods and to give general performance requirements for this type of capacitor. Test severities and requirements prescribed in detail specifications referring to this sectional specification shall be of equal or higher performance level; lower performance levels are not permitted.
