This project aims to:

  • research the potential use of live detectors for impressed voltage purposes by way of a desktop study and site trials which will provide suitable recommendations upon completion

  • design, prototype and test a suitable solution to enable the safe mitigation of foreseeable / known impressed voltage scenarios that could be encountered within either a high voltage or low voltage substation and overhead line working sites.

The first objective of this project is to produce recommendations on the potential use of live detectors for impressed voltage purposes at transmission level, by way of a desktop study and site trials.

The second objective is to design, test, and produce a solution suitable (impressed voltage clamp) to ensure safe mitigation of all foreseeable / known impressed voltage scenarios within either a substation or overhead line site.
 

There are two success criteria for this project:

  • create a shortlist of suitable live detectors for impressed voltage purposes at transmission levels

  • develop and successfully test a solution suitable (impressed voltage clamp) to ensure the safe mitigation of all foreseeable / known impressed voltage scenarios within either a high voltage or low voltage substation.
