Guide for Laboratory Measurement of the Power Dissipation Characteristics of Aeolian Vibration Dampers for Single Conductors

The purpose of this guide is to describe the current methodologies, including apparatus, procedures, and measurement accuracies, for the testing of vibration dampers. In addition, some basic guidance is also provided to inform the potential user of a given method's strengths and weaknesses (see clause 6). Due to the variety of vibration damper designs, more than one test method may be required to obtain the necessary information on dissipation characteristics. This guide is written to describe some of the procedures for determining the dynamic characteristics of vibration dampers and damping systems. It is intended that it will assist in the standardization of the methods included as well as result in providing a more detailed perspective in obtaining reliable information on a vibration damper's dissipation characteristics. Please note that the methodologies and procedures incorporated in this guide are applicable to indoor testing only and are in no way associated with the field testing of vibration dampers. By using the appropriate technique(s) outlined, data can be acquired that can be utilized in the application of dampers; however, this topic is considered beyond the scope of this guide. In general, it is intended that this guide will provide an improved understanding of vibration testing procedures.

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No Superseded Standards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No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards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.

No Inactive-Reserved Standards
