American National Standard for Electric Power Systems and Equipment—Voltage Ratings (60 Hz)

The standard divides voltages into two ranges. When in doubt the serving utility should be consulted. Large motors may require V or higher. Single-phase services and single-phase loads may be supplied from single-phase systems or from three-phase systems.

For Systems Greater Than V. Range B is acceptable, but not c8. In distribution systems this is usually considered the voltage at the meter socket or entrance switch.

Service voltage requirements are tighter than utilization voltage as the standard allows for some voltage drop within a facility. The content is copyrighted to EEP and may not be reproduced on other websites.

The above diagrams show connections of transformer secondary windings to supply the nominal system voltages of table 1. Leave a Comment Click here to cancel reply. Voltage variation over the course of a time, season, loading is something that the utilities and customer have to tolerate.


However, it is possible to design a power system that should work seamlessly across all possible excursions of the voltage as defined in the standard. The voltage on a utility feeder changes depending on the loading on the line, the reactive power demand of the load, time of the day and many other factors. I handle PQ studies, power system analysis, diagnostic testing, protective relaying and capital budgeting for company projects.

Corrective measures shall be undertaken within a reasonable time to bring back voltages within Range A limits, in cases of Range B values occurrence. Power Quality in Anwi Systems.

Voltage Disturbance

Power system design The selection of system voltages is crucial to successful power system design. Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts.

However, such conditions should be limited in extent, duration and frequency.

Utilities regulate the system voltage by switching power factor correction capacitors, tap changing transformers, voltage regulators, shunt reactors to name a few.


The nominal voltages are given in Table 1 below. Establishes nominal voltage ratings and operating ansj for 60 Hz electric power systems above V. From the figure above, the following can be deduced: We have no amendments or corrections for this standard.

Three-phase, three-wire systems may be: Newer Post Older Post Home. Already Subscribed to this document. As the voice of the U. The shaded portions of the ranges do not apply to circuits supplying x84 load. Principal transformer connections to supply the system voltages of Table 1 above.

Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. Range A and Range B.

American National Standard for Electric Power Systems and Equipment—Voltage Ratings (60 Hz)

This standard includes preferred voltage ratings up to and including 1,kV maximum system voltage. For V – V Systems. The shaded portion of the range does not apply to V – V s ystems. I have been working in an electric distribution utility for more than a decade. Another factor to consider regarding service voltage is the voltage regulation of the utility system.
