Part 2: AC Power Distribution Systems & Standards

Published by Nikola Zlatanov* Voltage Classifications ANSI and IEEE® standards define various voltage classifications for single-phase and three-phase systems. The terminology used divides voltage classes into: Low voltage Medium voltage High voltage Extra-high voltage Ultra-high voltage Table 1.1-1 presents the nominal system ese classifications. Voltages and Voltage Ranges (From IEEE Standard 141-1993) BIL—Basic Impulse LevelsContinue reading “Part 2: AC Power Distribution Systems & Standards”
