IEEE 837-2002

IEEE Standard for Qualifying Permanent Connections Used in Substation Grounding

Direction and methods for qualifying permanent connections used for substation grounding are provided in this standard. This standard particularly addresses the connection used within the grid system, the connection used to join ground leads to the grid system, and the connection used to join the ground leads to equipment and structures.

IEEE Guide for the Design of Low-Voltage Auxiliary Systems for Electric Power Substations

Considered in this guide are the components of both the ac and dc systems and the provided guidelines and recommendations for designing the appropriate systems for the substation under consideration. This guide includes the low-voltage auxiliary systems from the source(s) to the distribution point(s). Reliability requirements and load characteristics are discussed and distribution methods are recommended.

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No Superseded Standards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.


IEEE Guide for Fence Safety Clearances in Electric-Supply Stations

A method for providing fence safety clearances for electric-supply stations is presented. The purpose is to provide design guidance for the location of fences with respect to live parts within a station. The guide applies to electric-supply stations with voltage between phases up to and including 765 000 V.
