Application Guide for an Engineered Restoration Program for Failed Transmission Structures
|Publication Date:||7 November 2019|
This application guide provides recommendations and guidance on safety considerations for the planning, training and installation of ETRS as part of a restoration program. In addition, this guide outlines key elements to the proper maintenance and storage of restoration structures.
This document identifies key elements for implementing a program for temporary transmission-line restoration structures in a safe, efficient, and cost-effective manner.
The purpose of this guide is to provide the industry with a generic methodology that can be used by companies to develop a plan for restoration by evaluating their particular system and structure needs. The result of which would then be compatible with a large number of the system restoration structures presently in use within the utility industry, and would allow for even greater transmission mutual assistance aid.
The guide gives a common sense approach for planning, engineering, and training, as well as inspection of components and storage of the engineered structures and supporting components. The guide is also intended to outline many processes that could make structure restoration safer.
This guide is not intended to be an application guide for complete assembled emergency restoration structures; however, it is intended to be a companion document with IEEE 1070™.
