A3 – Transmission and distribution equipment

Mission

To facilitate and promote the progress of engineering and the international exchange of information and knowledge in the field of high voltage equipment. To add value to this information and knowledge by means of synthesizing state-of-the-art practices and developing recommendations.

 

Technological field of activity

• Devices for switching, interrupting, or limiting currents including circuit breakers, load switches, re-closers, ring-main units disconnectors, earthing switches and fault current limiters wherever installed.
• Surge arresters, capacitors, busbar and equipment insulators, instrument transformers, bushings, and all other equipment within the substation not specifically covered under another equipment study committee’s scopes.

 

Scope

 

U svom tehničkom opsegu djelovanja, Studijski odbor A3 obrađuje teme upravljanja imovinom tijekom faza životnog vijeka opreme; od idejnih rješenja, kroz istraživanje, razvoj, projektiranje, proizvodnju, montažu, pogon i kraj životnog vijeka. U svim fazama razmatraju se  tehnički, sigurnosni, ekonomski, okolišni i društveni aspekti kao i međudjelovanja i integracija s elektroenergetskim sustavom u kontinuiranom razvoju i okolišem. Unutar opsega uključeni su svi aspekti izvedbe, specifikacije, ispitivanja i primjene ispitnih metoda, s posebnim naglaskom na utjecaj promjenjivih interakcija i zahtjeva uzrokovanih razvojem elektroenergetskog sustava. Tehnike procjene životnog vijeka, tehnike upravljanja rizikom, obrazovanje i osposobljavanje također su važni aspekti opsega djelovanja.

Within this framework additional specific areas of attention include:
• Theory, principles and concepts, functionality, technological development, design,
performance and application of materials, efficiency.
• Manufacturing, quality assurance, application guidance, planning, routing and
location, construction, erection, installation.
• Reliability, availability, dependability, maintainability and maintenance, service,
condition monitoring, diagnostics, restoration, repair, loading, upgrading, uprating.
• Refurbishment, re-use/re-deployment, deterioration, dismantling, disposal.
