This guide documents proven methods and designs to reduce bird-related outages, such as contamination outages, streamer outages, and electrocution/collision/contact outages on transmission lines, in substations, and on distribution lines, thereby improving reliability and minimizing the associated revenue loss.

Purpose

Recommended procedures and techniques for reducing bird related contamination, streamer, electrocution and collision (contact) outages on transmission lines, in substations and on overhead distribution lines, including all apparatuses and devices, such as insulators, transformers, surge arresters, capacitor banks, poles etc. are provided. The information in this guide was drawn from electric utilities, suppliers, universities, related industries, and personal observations. Included in this guide are methods for reducing various bird-related outages that have been shown to be effective. The information presented is of particular benefit to utilities that are experiencing various bird related outages, some not even aware of the problem. It is also of value to those utilities that are in the process of erecting new lines in areas where birds are prevalent.
