The AS 2067:2016 High Voltage Standard provides minimum requirements for the design and installation of high voltages above 1kV (ac) so as to provide appropriate safety and performance over the assets entire life.
High voltage installations 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.
Most sections of AS 2067 have changed and this workshop will focus on those changes related to earthing. The earthing section has being considerably amended and expanded to cover all industry sectors, including mining, which previously relied on AS/NZ 3007.
This workshop will work through the earthing changes in detail starting from why change was required, through what the changes really mean, and importantly, what each workshop participant should be changing or doing to meet the new obligations. Significant changes were also made to sections on access areas and protection against fire and explosions and these will be given a brief overview.
