IEEE 510-1983 - IEEE Recommended Practices for Safety in High-Voltage and High-Power Testing
Standard Details
Safety practices for those who are involved with making measurements on high-voltage sources or with high-power sources of various types, including power-system lines, 60-Hz test transformers, direct-voltage supplies, lightning-impulse generators, and switching-impulse generators are recommended. Electrical hazards involved in temporary measurements, as opposed to metering, relaying, or routine line work, are considered. Safety is considered in connection with testing in laboratories, in the field, in substations, and on lines, and with the test equipment utilized. Cable-fault location, large-capacitance-load testing, high-current testing, and direct connection to power lines are treated separately.
