Get the Facts on Upcoming Energy Handling Tests for Arresters

In 2012, a new edition of IEC 60099-4 and IEEE C62.11 will be published. In these two documents, new requirements for arresters will be issues that cover testing and evaluating arrester energy handling capabilities. These tests are still in the development stages but very near completion. These two webinars will be about these new tests.

What will be covered are
  • Objectives and Rationale of the new tests
  • Definitions of Thermal Energy Handling, and Surge Handling.
  • Thermal Energy Rating Verification Tests Sequence and Evaluation
  • Surge Energy Rating Verification Test Sequence and Evaluation

Who Should Attend:

  • Anyone new to the industry who wishes to learn the details of Arrester Energy Tests
  • Standards engineers responsible for specifying arresters
  • Any stake holder that is interested in arrester standards.
  • Arrester Manufacturers that wish to understand the proposed tests
  • Anyone that just wants to listen in on a standards conversation

10:00 to 11:00am Eastern Standard Time on February 25th

Computer Requirements:

High Speed Connection and the ability for a small GO-TO-Meeting setup program to be installed during login.

Insulation Coordination Studies

The purpose of insulation coordination is to insure that insulation used in an electrical power system is adequate for the environment in which it is applied and to understand the probability of insulation failure under transient conditions. The resulting current levels in the station are quite low relative to direct strikes, but all that is needed to fail insulation is voltage and not current.


Surge Protection Seminars

This in-depth course is designed for those responsible for the reliability of substations, distribution systems, and transmission systems. Announcing a 1.5 day Surge Protection Seminar plus a .5 day Seminar on Lightning Studies Using ATPJuly 27-28.
