P987 - Guide for Application of Composite Insulators for Overhead Electric Power Lines
Project Details
This guide is for the application of high-voltage suspension and line post composite insulators used to insulate and support overhead transmission and distribution lines. It deals with composite insulators that include a solid core rod, which in turn consists of a matrix of axially-aligned glass fibers and a resin, an elastomeric material housing and weathersheds, and metal end-fittings. It is based on utility field experience, results of research laboratory tests, and manufacturers’ recommendations.
