Superseded Standard

IEEE C62.11a-2008

IEEE Standard for Metal-Oxide Surge Arresters for AC Power Circuits (>1 kV) Amendment 1: Short-Circuit Tests for Station, Intermediate, and Distribution Arresters

Metal-oxide surge arresters designed to repeatedly limit the voltage surges on 48 Hz to 62 Hz power circuits (>1000 V) by passing surge discharge current and automatically limiting the flow of system power current applies to this amendment. This amendment covers devices for separate mounting and to those supplied integrally with other equipment. The tests demonstrate that an arrester can survive the rigors of reasonable environmental conditions and system phenomena, while, at the same time, protect equipment and/or the system from damaging overvoltages caused by lightning, switching, or other undesirable surges.

P2770

60099-11 Surge Arresters - Part 11: Metal-Oxide Line Surge Arresters to Protect Power Line Insulation

This standard defines the design/type tests, routine test, acceptance tests and classifications for line surge arresters (LSA). The arresters covered by this standard are Non-Gapped Line Arresters (NGLA) and Externally Gapped Line Arresters (EGLA) for use on AC or DC transmission and distribution power lines with system voltages > 1kV.

C62.11-2020

IEEE Standard for Metal-Oxide Surge Arresters for AC Power Circuits (>1 kV)

Metal-oxide surge arresters (MOSAs) designed to repeatedly limit the voltage surges on 48 Hz to 62 Hz power circuits (>1000 V) by passing surge discharge current and automatically limiting the flow of system power current are addressed in this standard. This standard applies to devices for separate mounting and to devices supplied integrally with other equipment. The tests demonstrate that an arrester is able to survive the rigors of reasonable environmental conditions and system phenomena while protecting equipment and/or the system from damaging overvoltages caused by lightning, switching, and other undesirable surges.
