605 - Guide for Bus Design in Air Insulated Substations

Substation rigid and strain bus structure design involves electrical, mechanical, and structural considerations. It is the purpose of this guide to integrate these considerations into one document. Special considerations are given to fault current force calculations. The factors considered include the decrement of the fault current, the flexibility of supports, and the natural frequency of the bus. These factors are mentioned in ANSI C37.32-2002 but are not taken into consideration in the equations presented in that standard, including intended users and benefits to users.
