P1627 - IEEE Draft Standard for Transient Overvoltage Protection of DC Electrification Systems by Application of Surge Arrestors

This standard provides uniform practices for protecting overhead and third rail contact systems used in direct current traction electrification with application of lightning arresters. Such a standard will allow the use of lightning protection to provide increased protection to passengers, maintenance personnel, and systemwide equipment, shall reduce maintenance and initial costs due to ineffective devices and can improve systemwide reliability and performance.This standard covers practices for the application of surge arrestors in overhead and third rail contact systems used in the electrification of heavy rail, light rail, streetcar and trolley bus systems.
