IEEE 1653.6-2018 - IEEE Recommended Practice for Grounding of DC Equipment Enclosures in Traction Power Distribution Facilities
The grounding of dc equipment enclosures installed in dc traction power distribution facilities as well as related insulation treatments required for solid and resistance grounding methods are covered in this standard. Guidelines are also given for material, installation, and testing of insulation used in dc traction facilities and further recommended criteria for acceptability are provided. System grounding, though related, is not covered in this document.
