This guide identifies distribution reliability indices and factors that affect their calculation. It includes indices, which are useful today, as well as ones that may be useful in the future. The indices are intended to apply to distribution systems, substations, circuits, and defined regions.
P2845 - Trial Use Standard for Testing and Evaluating the Dielectric Performance of Celebratory Balloons in Contact with Overhead Power Distribution Lines Rated up to 38 kV System Voltage
This standard is applicable to celebratory balloons that are comparable in size and shape to what are commonly referred to as gas-filled foil balloons, which are available on the market and ionize when in close proximity to energized distribution power lines. The test procedures evaluate the dielectric performance of celebratory balloons in close proximity to energized distribution power lines with the intent of minimizing balloon caused power system interruptions (faults). The scope is limited to distribution system voltages of 38 kV or less. The effects of moisture and contaminants are not investigated under this procedure.
Distribution reliability indices and factors that affect their calculations are defined in this guide. The indices are intended to apply to distribution systems, substations, circuits, and defined regions.
