Procedures for selecting external insulation that is likely to be subjected to an outdoor environment that includes combinations of contamination, ice, snow, or cold fog are specified by this guide. The selection methods are applicable to insulators, surge arresters, bushings, live line tools and other high voltage ac and dc apparatus with a rated voltage above 1 kV.

Other Activities From This Working Group
Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.
No Active Projects
Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.
No Active Standards
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.
No Superseded Standards
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No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards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.
IEEE Guide for Test Methods and Procedures to Evaluate the Electrical Performance of Insulators in Freezing Conditions
The guide specifies procedures for testing equipment when external insulation of the test object is subjected to combinations of contamination, ice, snow, or cold fog. The methods are applicable only to tests on equipment with a rated voltage above 1 kV.
