C37.24-2017 - IEEE Approved Draft Guide for Evaluating the Effect of Solar Radiation on Outdoor Metal-Enclosed Switchgear

Description: This guide provides information to assist in evaluating the effect of solar radiation on outdoor metal-enclosed switchgear including metal-enclosed bus and control switchboards. Specific data are given in the form of a continuous current capability factor for specific maximum monthly normal temperatures at the installation location, to adjust the continuous current capability of outdoor metal-enclosed switchgear to the solar radiation condition required. Examples of maximum monthly normal temperatures are presented along with sources for data for the U.S. and for Canada.
