Guide for Application of Composite Insulators for Overhead Electric Power Lines

This guide is for the application of high-voltage suspension and line post composite insulators used to insulate and support overhead transmission and distribution lines. It deals with composite insulators that include a solid core rod, which in turn consists of a matrix of axially-aligned glass fibers and a resin, an elastomeric material housing and weathersheds, and metal end-fittings. It is based on utility field experience, results of research laboratory tests, and manufacturers' recommendations.

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No Superseded Standards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No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards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
