PC62.22: Guide for the Application of Metal-Oxide Surge Arresters for Alternating-Current Systems

Status: SPDC WG 3.4.14 revision to C62.22-2009

Scope: This guide covers the application of metal-oxide surge arresters [see IEEE Standard for Metal-Oxide Surge Arresters for AC Power Circuits (>1 kV) C62.11-2012] to safeguard electric power equipment against the hazards of abnormally high voltage surges of various origins. This application guide does not cover the application of low-voltage surge protective devices below 1000 V alternating current (ac), except when applied to the secondary of a transformer.

PC62.23: Application Guide for Surge Protection of Electric Generating Plants

Status: SPDC WG 3.4.13 PAR for a Revision to C62.23-1995

Scope: This guide covers surges entering an electric generating plant via transmission and distribution lines and methods to reduce them; methods of protecting indoor and outdoor equipment, controls and communication systems within the plant switchyard, the plant proper and ancillary facilities within the premises such as fuel, ash, water, cooling, weather and warning systems, against direct strokes, incoming and internally generated surges.

PC62.82.2: Guide for the Application of Insulation Coordination

Status: SPDC WG 3.4.18 PAR for a Revision to 1313.2-1999

Scope: The insulation coordination standard and guide apply to three-phase ac systems above 15 kV and are divided into two parts. This guide, the second part, is an application guide with practical examples, intended to provide guidance in the determination of the withstand voltages and to suggest calculation methods and procedures. The insulation coordination examples for selected equipment are designed to explain the principles of Part 1, IEEE C62.82.1, Standard of Insulation Coordination-Definitions, Principles, and Rules. The guide is intended for air-insulated ac systems. Caution should be exercised in the case of gas-insulated systems (GIS).
