Superseded Standard

IEEE 28-1972

IEEE Standard for Surge Arresters (Lightning Arresters) for Alternating Current Power Circuits

The issuance of this document to supersede IEEE Std 28-1967 (ANSI C62.1-1967) revises many portions of the standard and adds two significant design tests, namely, switching-surge sparkover characteristic tests for station and intermediate arresters rated 60 kV and above, and radio influence voltage (RIV) and internal-ionization-voltage tests.
