Superseded Standard

IEEE/AIEE 28-1962

AIEE American Standards for Lightning Arresters for Alternating Current Power Circuits

The current issue of this Standard is a revision of the previous issue C62.1-1957 to change many of the definitions, to add a new definition titled "Virtual Duration of Wave Front" which changes the method of measuring time to crest value, to eliminate the word "type" from arrester classification designations as superfluous, to add a 10 kv distribution arrester and 90 kv intermediate and station arresters to the list of standard ratings, to change the standard ratings above 90 kv to multiples of 3, 6, and 12 kv, and to make many editorial changes for purposes of clarification or conciseness.
