Overhead Electrical Conductors - Creep Test Procedures for Stranded Conductors
|Publication Date:||1 March 1998|
|ICS Code (Power transmission and distribution lines):||29.240.20|
This International Standard is primarily applicable to non-interrupted creep-testing of stranded conductors for overhead lines such as those specified by IEC 61089. Procedures for interpreting the results are also included.
The object of the test is principally to calculate creep for any purpose and to compare creep of different conductors.
The requirement of this standard aims at an accuracy of 1 %. However, it should be recognized that due to variations occurring in the manufacturing process, the creep obtained in the test is not a precise value for all conductors of the type tested.
