IEEE Draft Recommended Practice for Instrumentation: Specifications for Magnetic Flux Density and Electric Field Strength Meters - 10 Hz to 3 kHz

Specifications that should be provided to characterize instrumentation used to measure the steady state root mean square (rms) value of magnetic and electric fields with sinusoidal frequency content in the range 10 Hz to 3 kHz are identified. The instrumentation, recommended calibration methods, and sources of measurement uncertainty are also described.

Guide for Conducting Corona Tests on Hardware for Overhead Transmission Lines and Substations

This guide establishes uniform procedures for the testing of transmission line and station bus hardware in high voltage laboratories. Two tests are described. The first one is a corona performance test. The second is a radio interference voltage (RIV) test. The first test uses visible techniques to determine the onset of positive corona. The second test is a measurement of the RIV voltage according to ANSI C63.2 or CISPR 16-1-1 and CISPR TR 18-2. This guide does not address the permissible radio interference (RI) limits or specified corona extinction voltages. They are set either by regulation or by agreement between the end user and hardware manufacturer.

IEEE Guide on the Prediction,Measurement, and Analysis of AM Broadcast Reradiation by Power Lines

A set of procedures to be followed to cope with reradiation of AM broadcast signals from power lines and other large metallic structures is provided. Reradiation may be described as electromagnetic waves radiated from a structure that has parasitically picked up a signal from the environment. A simplified prediction technique called a survey is described to determine which structures could possibly cause a problem. Guidelines for measurements and data analysis are included.

IEEE Guide for Installation, Maintenance, and Operation of Irrigation Equipment Located Near or Under Power Lines

Industry practices and guidelines for installation, maintenance, and operation of irrigation equipment near or under power lines as they pertain to minimum distance to energized conductors and proper grounding to help minimize nuisance shocks are presented in this guide. A variety of conditions in general terms is covered in this guide. Specific recommendations are made for the type of irrigation systems and power line parameters most commonly found.

Uniform procedures for the testing of transmission line and station bus hardware in high voltage laboratories are established in this guide. Two tests are described: the first is a visual corona test, the second is a radio interference voltage (RIV) test. This guide does not address the permissible radio interference (RI) limits or specified corona extinction voltages. They are set either by regulation or by agreement between the utility and hardware manufacturer.

IEEE Guide for Evaluating AC Interference on Linear Facilities Co-Located Near Transmission Lines

This guide identifies the mechanisms and analytic approach for ac interference effects on conductive linear facilities due to the operation of co-located electric transmission lines. The common mechanisms for ac interference such as magnetic inductive coupling, capacitive coupling, and conductive voltage transfer through soil are discussed. Included are general guidelines and considerations for performing detailed ac interference analyses, with sections specific to the analysis of co-located pipeline and railroad facilities. This guide does not dictate specific compliance limits, direct when an ac interference analysis must be performed, or cover other issues that may need to be considered in joint-use corridors, such as effects due to lightning striking the line or dc corrosion on structures.

IEEE Standard Procedures for the Measurement of Radio Noise from Overhead Power Lines and Substations

Uniform procedures for the measurement of radio noise generated by corona from overhead power lines and substations are established in this standard. Measurement procedures in this standard are also valid for other power-line noise sources such as gaps and harmonics; however, most of the precautionary information, analysis, and data plotting techniques were written and developed primarily for corona discharges. The procedures are not valid for measuring transient radio noise sources that occur during breaker or disconnect switching operations. The procedures apply in the frequency range of 0.010 MHz to 1000 MHz; however, the emphasis is on the standard amplitude-modulation broadcasting (0.535 MHz to 1.605 MHz) and television broadcasting (54 MHz to 72 MHz, 76 MHz to 88 MHz, 174 MHz to 216 MHz, and 470 MHz to 698 MHz) bands. This standard is applicable to both ac and dc transmission lines and substations.

IEEE Standard Definitions of Terms Relating to Corona and Field Effects of Overhead Power Lines

Definitions and usage of terms used in the measurement and analysis of corona and field effects of overhead power lines are presented in this standard. Correlation between measurements from equipment to standard terms is defined. Weather conditions such as rain, snow, and fog are defined and their measurement standards discussed. The intent is to assist in correlating standard terms found in literature and requirements to standard engineering practice.

IEEE Standard Procedures for Measurement of Power Frequency Electric and Magnetic Fields from AC Power Lines

Uniform procedures for the measurement of power frequency electric and magnetic fields from alternating current (ac) overhead power lines and for the calibration of the meters used in these measurements are established in this standard. The procedures apply to the measurement of electric and magnetic fields close to ground level. The procedures can also be tentatively applied (with limitations, as specified in the standard) to electric fields near an energized conductor or structure.

AIEE Proposed Recommended Practice for Toroial Magnetic tape Wound Cores

The scope of this recommended practice is restricted to the recommendation of nominal dimensions for toroidal strip-wound cores made from magnetic tape between approximately 0.014 and 0.005 inch in thickness and without regard to the type of magnetic material used. Bobbin-wound cores of ultra-thin magnetic tapes are not included. Also excluded from consideration are recommendations on dimensional tolerances, space factors, number of wraps of tape, core case shape or size, and particular values of strip thickness.
