Active Standard

IEEE C93.3-2017

IEEE Standard Requirements for Power-Line Carrier Line Traps (30 kHz to 500 kHz)

Line traps inserted into a power line to provide a high impedance at power-line-carrier frequencies (30 kHz to 500 kHz) are covered in this standard. The purpose is to isolate the carrier signal from system impedance changes due to faults or switching behind the point of insertion, and to guide the signal in the proper direction. The standard covers line traps in which the main coil is designed as a single-phase, air-cooled inductor of the dry type.

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No Superseded Standards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No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards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
