NEMA - ANSI C37.58
for Switchgear Indoor AC Medium-Voltage Switches for Use in Metal-Enclosed Switchgear Conformance Test Procedures
|Publication Date:||1 January 2003|
This standard applies to the conformance test procedure for ac medium-voltage switches rated above 1000 volts as designed, manufactured, and tested in accordance with ANSI/IEEE C37.20.4. It is intended for use in metal-clad switchgear, as described in ANSI/IEEE C37.20.2, and metal-enclosed interrupter switchgear, as described in ANSI/IEEE C37.20.3.
Conformance testing need not be performed but may be utilized to demonstrate that the switches conform with the ratings assigned, as agreeable to those concerned, usually some time after original design testing, to satisfy a specific need.
This standard does not apply to installations under the exclusive control of electric utilities for the generation, control, transformation, transmission, and distribution of electric energy located in buildings used exclusively by utilities for such purposes or located outdoors on property owned or leased by the utility or on public highways, streets, roads, and the like, or outdoors by established rights on private property.
NOTE 1-An electric utility is an entity that is overseen by a public utility commission, a public service commission, or other regulatory agency having jurisdiction for such installations.
NOTE 2-Within this standard, the words "switch" or "switches" shall be considered to mean "indoor ac medium-voltage switches for use in enclosures" subject to the requirements of ANSI/IEEE C37.20.4.
