C57.163-2015 - IEEE Guide for Establishing Power Transformer Capability while under Geomagnetic Disturbances
The effects of geomagnetic disturbances (GMD) on power transformers when theree is the presence of geomagnetically induced current (GIC) in a power transformer are described. Specification parameters and performance characteristics for power transformers to help minimize the risk and impact when GIC is present in the power system are established. The intent is to provide a background that can help evaluate the effect of GIC on a power transformer design and its GIC capability. This includes the evaluation techniques to determine the performance characteristics while under the influence of GIC.
