IEEE P1048b

IEEE Draft Guide for Protective Grounding of Power Lines Amendment B: Differentiating the Fabric Carrier Mat and the Rigid Carrier Mat

Guidelines are provided for Temporary Protective Grounding (TPG) of electric power lines to assist in protection of workers from voltages and currents that might develop at a de-energized worksite during maintenance of ac overhead and underground, transmission and distribution lines, cables, and equipment. Other forms of worker protection include isolation and insulation. These methods are described in other documents and guides and are not discussed here.

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


1048-2003

IEEE Guide for Protective Grounding of Power Lines

Guidelines for protective grounding methods for individuals engaged in de-energized overhead transmission and distribution line maintenance are provided. This guide also provides information on the sizing and maintenance of protective ground sets. It is a compilation of information on protective grounding practice employed by North American power utilities.

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.


No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
