P1829 - Guide for Conducting Corona Tests on Hardware for Overhead Transmission Lines and Substations
Project Details
This guide establishes uniform procedures for the testing of transmission line and station bus hardware in high voltage laboratories. Two tests are described. The first one is a corona performance test. The second is a radio interference voltage (RIV) test. The first test uses visible techniques to determine the onset of positive corona. The second test is a measurement of the RIV voltage according to ANSI C63.2 or CISPR 16-1-1 and CISPR TR 18-2. This guide does not address the permissible radio interference (RI) limits or specified corona extinction voltages. They are set either by regulation or by agreement between the end user and hardware manufacturer.
