|IEEE Program Manager|
This document provides recommended practices for the engineering and design of flexible and rigid bus connections for bus and equipment in electric power substations located in seismically active areas. It covers the effects of buswork connections in the seismic qualification of equipment covered within the scope of IEEE Std 693(TM).
IEEE 1527-2006 - IEEE Recommended Practice for the Design of Flexible Buswork Located in Seismically Active Areas
The engineering and design of flexible bus connections for bus and equipment in electric power substations is described. This recommended practice gives guidance to the substation engineer who is unfamiliar with seismic considerations in the engineering and design of connections, and provides engineers with the current state of knowledge of the dynamic effects of high-voltage connections and conductors.
