IEEE 1860-2014 - IEEE Guide for Voltage Regulation and Reactive Power Compensation at 1000 kV AC and Above
This guide applies to voltage and reactive power control in 1000 kV and above ac systems. It establishes criteria and requirements for electric power utilities in the planning, design, infrastructure, operation, and scientific research of voltage or reactive power in 1000 kV and above ac systems, which should guarantee the system stability and equipment safety.
IEEE 1862-2014 - IEEE Recommended Practice for Overvoltage and Insulation Coordination of Transmission Systems at 1000 kV AC and Above
This recommended practice specifies the procedure for selection of insulation levels of UHV AC transmission lines and substations. It also specifies reliability criterion under switching overvoltage and lightning overvoltage. It also suggests the calculation methods of insulation coordination design. According to the characteristics of UHV AC systems, overvoltages mitigation measures are recommended. Some examples of insulation coordination are presented.
