PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP 1 - Tuesday March 26th - 8:30am - 12pm
High Voltage Substation Installation Standards – An in-depth look at AS 2067 and how it affects your work
The revised edition of AS2067: 2016 Substation and High Voltage Installations exceeding 1kV a.c. was released in September 2016. It is based on the IEC Standard IEC61936 and is applicable to most high voltage installations, be they customer installations, generation facilities or utility owned installations. As for the previous edition, the new edition of AS/NZS 3000:2018 Wiring Rules references AS2067 as the applicable standard for high voltage customer installations.
Most sections of AS2067:2016 have been revised. Amendment include many of the changes that have been made to IEC 61936 and incorporates a review of considerations of electrical clearances, fire issues, requirements related to the mining area for fixed installations and a substantial expansion of the clauses on earthing. The document covers aspects of many specialities applicable to the complex issues that need to be considered in designs.
Apart from earthing which is being dealt with separately, the workshop will review some of the key aspects of AS2067 in the design of substations and high voltage installations. Particular attention will be given to some of the amendments that have been made to the 2016 edition.
