Service Entrance Protection Coordination

Investigate arrester application issues at secondary service entrances, specifically with regard to the overvoltage coordination between service entrance arresters and utility equipment. The results will:

  • Define whether service entrance protection may be applied without performing secondary surge mitigation.
  • Specify any steps needed to counteract an increase in utility equipment stress.
  • Indicate the application circumstances (e.g. grounding conditions, transformer type) where mitigation is necessary.
