8 Jul electrical specifications of ASTM F [4]. Ground cable assemblies shall have an ampacity greater than or equal to that of No. 2 AWG copper. Abstract: ASTM Standard F was originally written with the intent of covering temporary protective grounds to be used on overhead power lines. The standard . Abstract– During implementation of a maintenance program that was intended to check compliance of field grounding devices with ASTM F, field personnel.

The DC awtm asymmetry drops off quickly because of I2r losses in the circuit. The threaded ferrule comes with a spring washer and nut. All cables must have strain relief. The ferrules shall be tested for electrical short-circuit capacity and continuous current rating.

At present, there is no Type II specification.

The principal difference in f55 type is the temperature rating of the insulation and stranding of the conductor. There are nine ASTM termination styles designated for ground clamps.

The ultimate rating is the current ratings the clamp can sustain in kA at 6, 15, 30 and 60 cycles. Ferrules for Temporary Protective Grounds.


It is not permissible to make a stranded conductor connection directly to a clamp. Cables for Temporary Protective Grounds. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.

Most of the cables in the market are constructed to ASTM standards and have performed well in utility use. Type III is usually installed using a asm T-handle and is intended as a first connection to a system neutral, pole bond, or grounded station or apparatus steel that does not require use of a hot stick.

Over the duration of the fault, the components heat up and the ratings of the components decrease. See Appendix X4 for details. Alternate testing circuits are available for laboratories that cannot achieve the above requirements.

Clamps for Temporary Protective Grounds. Ferrules Cable ferrules are sleeves compressed onto the cable end to protect the stranding of the cable when installed in a connecting terminal. A plain stud-type ferrule is inserted in the eye. Comments No comments made yet. Guest Friday, 09 November After 25 years as a transmission distribution lineman and foreman, Jim Vaughn has devoted the last 15 years to safety and training. Cable Capacity The current ratings for grounding cables are higher than standard service cable ratings because of the specific application, lengths of cable in use and expected duration of applied currents.

While not part of the F standard, the nine styles can be unofficially grouped into three basic terminal types: This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Such calculation also assumes that the resistance between the station astn the point of a fault will further limit the amount of power delivered into the fault. Tuesday, 12 June Train the Trainer Alternate testing circuits are available for laboratories that cannot achieve the f855 requirements.

Training for the Qualified Em In addition, the paragraph notes that many of these cables have been tested to the ASTM standard and have been found to meet the requirements of the standard.

Calculating Fault F85 Calculation of fault current is best accomplished through the services of an engineer experienced in utility systems.
