At the present time there are no uniform practices for grounding overhead contact systems used in DC traction electrification or for application of lightning arresters. Such a standard will provide increased protection to passengers, personnel, and equipment, reduce maintenance and initial costs and improve system performance.The scope of this standard covers practices for grounding overhead contact systems used in dc electrification for rail, light rail, and trolley bus including the proper application of lightning arresters.
