Superseded Standard

IEEE C37.011-1979

IEEE Application Guide for Transient Recovery Voltage for AC High-Voltage Circuit Breakers Rated on a Symmetrical Current Basis

Superseded by C37.011-1994. Transient recovery voltage requirements for AC high-voltage circuit breakers rated above 1000 V and on a symmetrical current basis are addressed. The effect of circuit parameters and the circuit breaker on the transient recovery voltage is considered, and transient recovery voltage tests are specified. Circuit breaker rating and application, calculation of transient recovery voltages, a short method of calculating TRV limits, and typical values of capacitance and its calculation for various equipment are covered.

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No Superseded Standards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No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards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
