The requirements relating to the emission of auxiliary AC supply sockets in traction vehicles have been extended in standard PN-EN 50121-3-2:2015 by voltage harmonics measurement. This applies to the public on-board AC supply grid which is accessible to all passengers. It is concerned with providing the quality of power supply which is required by computer devices and mobile phone rechargers. This article presents the requirements and test methods resulting from extended standard scope. Normative factors, for which levels of permissible voltage harmonics in the public supply grid of traction vehicle have been defined are discussed. Examples of comparative results obtained from measurements and analyses of voltage harmonics within on-board supply grids are also presented. The presented results include extended calculations of distortion factors for groups and subgroups of supply voltage harmonics. In order to improve the quality of voltage within the on-board grid, which did not meet the requirements, simulation calculations were performed and an additional output sinusoidal filter was proposed.
