Abstract

Although the test procedure of ANSI C62. 1 is satisfactory for arresters made using series gaps, it is not adequate for testing metal oxide arresters; in addition, no formal method has been agreed upon for washing energized arresters which are subjected to unusually severe contamination. The objectives of this paper are: to point out the differences in performance under contaminated conditions of arresters made with and without series gaps; to suggest a revision of the ANSI Standard to include a test appropriate for arresters made without series gaps; and to describe tests made to demonstrate the ability of metal oxide arresters to permit washing while energized.
