IEEE P2954

IEEE Draft Recommended Practice for Overhead Transmission Line Design

This recommended practice summarizes a large collection of peer-reviewed IEEE and other industry standards and guidelines related to overhead transmission line design, testing, construction, and maintenance. This includes aspects such as structures, foundations, conductors, insulators, hardware, and electrical effects. It identifies the documents in an organized and comprehensive fashion along with explanations of the material presented within each document and when a particular document should be considered.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.


P1724

Guide for the Preparation of a Transmission Line Design Criteria Document

This guide provides a template to assist line design engineers in gathering and organizing information into a coherent design criteria document for use in the design of overhead electric power transmission lines, generally at voltages of 69 kV and higher. The guide is also useful for the design of lower voltage lines.

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No Superseded Standards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No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards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.


1724-2011

IEEE Guide for the Preparation of a Transmission Line Design Criteria Document

A suggested outline for information that should be included in a design criteria for overhead transmission lines is presented in this guide. This guide is not a design criteria or a design manual, it is a listing of the information that is required during the design of a transmission line, and provides guidance for line designers in the collection and documentation of how the line was designed; including the sources of information used in design and the design approach used.
