P1861 - IEEE Draft Guide for On-site Acceptance Tests of Electrical Equipment and System Commissioning of 1000 kV AC and Above

The intent of this guide is to identify on-site acceptance tests of 1000 kV AC and above electrical equipment. This guide also promotes the application and development of on-site acceptance test methodology. It provides uniform technology specification recommendations for commissioning of 1000 kV AC and above transmission systems. It also provides the recommendations of testing, acceptance criterion, and safety specifications. This guide also provides sufficient technical support for widespread and long distance Ultra High Voltage (UHV) AC transmission, and promotes system operating safety and reliability.This guide applies to on-site acceptance tests of electrical equipment and system commissioning of 1000 kV and above. It identifies a criterion and recommendations for test items, conditions, methods, and results. The stated recommendations, both technical and testing, are universally needed for on-site acceptance tests and commissioning of 1000 kV AC and above, including power transformers, reactors, capacitive voltage transformers, current transformers, gas-insulated substations, grounding and disconnect switches, bushings, arresters, suspension and post insulators, insulating oil, SF6, secondary circuits, overhead transmission lines, and grounding devices.
