NS220
Overhead Design Manual
February 2011
 
 
SUMMARYNetwork Standard NS220 facilitates design of the Ausgrid’s overhead distribution network bystaff and Accredited Service Providers. It outlines key line design parameters and providesinformation on conductor sags/tensions, mechanical loadings, pole/structure capacity, andother electrical and mechanical data. It also provides guidance on matters of policy andpreferred practice.ISSUE
Ausgrid staff:
This document is for issue to all staff involved with the design of overheaddistribution lines.Where this standard is issued as a controlled document replacing an earlier edition; removeand destroy the superseded document.
Accredited Service Providers:
This document is issued on an uncontrolled basis. Usersare responsible for ensuring that the document they are using is current and includes anyamendments issued since the date on the document.
