This conference will cover the AS 2067 HV standard which provides minimum requirements for the design and installation of high voltages above 1kV (ac) so as to provide safe functioning in operation. A new edition of AS 2067 is soon to be released and represents some significant amendments that should be of interest to anyone involved in high voltage substations and installations.
The high voltage installation can range from a substation, auxiliary systems, interconnecting cables/lines and naturally the user’s facilities such a plant, factory, office facility and mine site. Equipment includes switchgear, transformers, converters, cables, lines, batteries, earthing systems, capacitors, reactors, buildings and structures.
In addition to HV design and installation, HV maintenance is a challenging undertaking and the Australian industry needs to have the sustainability and reliability of ageing HV equipment at the forefront of their minds when planning and designing their upcoming projects. The event will discuss problems that arise from HV equipment maintenance and how industry can overcome these issues through well planned maintenance programs, adherence to standards/regulations and forward thinking.
