WGE9 - Permanent Connections Used in Substation WG
|IEEE Program Manager|
This standard provides test specifications for permanent connections used for substation grounding. It particularly addresses the connections used within the ground grid, and the connections used to join the ground grid to equipment and structures.
P1818 - Recommended Practice for the Design of Low-Voltage Auxiliary Systems for Electric Power Substations
This Recommended Practice considers the components of both the ac and dc systems and provides guidelines and recommendations for designing the appropriate systems for the substation under consideration. This recommended practice covers the low-voltage auxiliary systems from the source(s) to the distribution point(s). Reliability requirements and load characteristics are discussed, and distribution methods are recommended.
Direction and methods for qualifying permanent connections used for substation grounding are provided in this standard. This standard particularly addresses the connection used within the grid system, the connection used to join ground leads to the grid system, and the connection used to join the ground leads to equipment and structures.
