GE Surge Protection
The performance and reliability of today’s electric power system can be enhanced with the unique
characteristics of GE TRANQUELL arrester products. Since introducing the world’s first metal oxide
arrester in 1976, offering new concepts in surge arrester design and application, GE has developed
and applied metal oxide technology for a variety of traditional and special applications. GE offers one
of the most complete lines of surge arrester products in the world today; from distribution class to EHV
arresters up to 612kV rating as well as high energy varistors for series capacitor applications.
Product and power systems engineers work closely to optimize product performance on the system. GE
is one of the world’s leading supplier of metal oxide arresters and specialty varistors.

Product Description
TRANQUELL arresters provide
exceptional overvoltage
protection of major power
system equipment. Under
normal system conditions,
the arrester appears as a
high impedance path. When
a surge reaches the arrester,
the arrester changes to a low
impedance path and conducts
only the current necessary to
limit the overvoltage. As a result,
TRANQUELL arresters absorb
minimum energy to protect
equipment insulation.

Station Arresters are designed and manufactured in accordance with the latest revision of ANSI/IEEE
C62.11. GE TRANQUELL polymer and porcelain arresters are designed to meet the most demanding
service conditions.

This pressure will be safely vented to the outside and an external arc will be established provided the fault current is within the pressure relief fault current capability of the arrester. depending upon the specific model arrester. an abnormal leakage current measurement can be indicative of a wet. Although this will limit the arrester’s ability to survive future system conditions. the arrester to be selected should have a pressure relief/fault current capability greater than the maximum short-circuit current available at the intended arrester location including appropriate allowances for system growth.000 ft. For example. Extra leakage distance arrester housings are available. If leakage current is to be used as an indication of arrester condition. the insulation design of the substation will dictate the arrester clearances. Failure to do so may result in unwanted flashovers and electrical overstress to internal arrester elements.11. Once an arrester has safely vented. it is impractical to fully test an arrester in the field without highvoltage test equipment and accurate instrumentation. The rated working cantilever strengths for various arrester ratings are shown in Table 6 and are defined in accordance with ANSI C29.Application and Selection Guide Polymer/Porcelain Station & Intermediate Class Service Conditions & Other Considerations Arrester Withstand Capability GE TRANQUELL arresters are built in accordance with contamination tests outlined in ANSI/IEEE C62. Altitude GE TRANQUELL arresters are designed for altitudes between 6. pressure relief.000 and 12. Such damage may reduce the arrester internal electrical resistance. the pressure relief apertures should be oriented away from adjacent apparatus to minimize damage to that apparatus in case of a pressure relief operation. arrester clearances should increase approximately three percent.

An arrester that has vented should be replaced immediately. the highest resulting rating must be chosen. Field Testing In general. For GEDigitalEnergy. provided electric utility industry accepted safety precautions are observed. 8 . seismic requirements need to be specified. All ratings of metal top porcelain station arresters will withstand a system available short circuit current of at least 65. a line-to-ground arc will develop and pressure will build up inside the housing. specific to each arrester location. Arresters may be horizontally mounted if the cantilever loading. recommended clearances between the arrester and any adjacent equipment must be observed. symmetrical (169. the higher the ambient temperature. Ambient Temperature Ambient temperature is an important consideration in the application of metal oxide arresters. GE TRANQUELL arresters are designed to have a uniform voltage gradient along the length of the porcelain column. this uniformity would be disturbed. and switching surges. a grading ring is mounted on top of the arrester to establish a more uniform voltage distribution along the arrester. Typical arrester leakage currents of station arresters operating at their continuous voltage capability and at 20°C are in the range of one-half to three milliamperes. extra clearances may be required in the design of the arrester housing.

In the installation of arresters. it no longer possesses its pressure relief/ fault current capability. the metal oxide disks may crack or puncture. As with any porcelain arrester. the pressure relief vents should be located on the underside of the arrester. Arrester Selection Summary The arrester selection process should include a review of all system stresses and service conditions expected at the arrester location. Where applicable. Contamination of the arrester housing will contribute another component to the leakage current. or vented arrester. Where applicable. does not exceed the maximum working cantilever strength.

The three transformer insulation withstand voltages are as specified in ANSI C57. it is suggested that digital computer studies be performed in which the arrester and substation details can be modeled. full wave. the time-tocrest for the voltage wave will be less than the time-to-crest for the current wave.25 In many cases.Application and Selection Guide Polymer/Porcelain Station & Intermediate Class Insulation Coordination Once an arrester has been selected. These calculated protective ratios assume negligible arrester lead length and separation distance between the arrester and the transformer. Protective Ratios The three-point method is usually applied for insulation coordination. the discharge voltage is a function of the magnitude of the arrester current and.com . In this method the protective ratios are calculated at three separate points within the volt-time domain. namely switching surge. for any specific applied impulse current through the arrester. When making such transformer voltage estimates for shielded stations. the lightning and switching surges expected on the system. of the time to crest of the arrester current.53 corresponds to a 53% protective margin. These currents are: 500 amperes for maximum system line-to-line voltages to 150kV.20 Chopped Wave Withstand Front-of-Wave Protective Level >= 1. The resultant crest voltages for a variety of crest currents are given in the applicable Arrester Characteristics Table. To define the arrester’s switching surge protective level. consider a 550kV BIL transformer protected by a 144kV rated GE TRANQUELL polymer station surge arrester. Arrester Protective Characteristics The protective characteristic of GE TRANQUELL arresters is solely defined by the discharge voltage and is generally proportional to arrester MCOV. and chopped wave regions. Figure 1 shows the test results of a 10 kA 8/20 µs current impulse test.5 ∙s in accordance with ANSI/IEEE. If the separation distance between the transformer and arrester is not negligible. the full wave. Switching Surge Withstand >= 1. For any one arrester. The calculated ratios indicate that the arrester would provide excellent protection for the transformer insulation. a protective ratio of 1. it is suggested that the front-of-wave protective level of the arrester be used as an approximation for the arrester voltage. In decisive situations. in the impulse region. thus reducing the protective ratio. To allow coordination with transformer insulation. Guidance in estimating these effects can be obtained from ANSI C62. and the chopped wave tests. 8 ms) and extending the measured voltages to 0. the transformer voltage can oscillate above the arrester voltage during lightning transients. They are described as follows: • Switching Surge Protective Level: This is the crest discharge voltage that results when a 36/90 ∙s current impulse is applied to the arrester. and 2000 amperes for systems above 325kV.00[9]. times 100%.15 Switching Surge Protective Level Full Wave Withstand (BIL) Impulse Protective Level >= 1. the discharge voltages have been defined for standard switching surge currents. a “switching surge coordination current” is defined for the various system voltages.22. Figure 2 Arrester voltage and current osillograms for 10kA. This protection is dependent on the protective characteristics of the arrester. the calculated protective ratios exceed the minimum protective ratios recommended by ANSI by a considerable amount in actual power system applications.22 and References [10] and [11]. The objective is to meet or exceed the minimum protective ratios for the various classes of voltage surges as recommended in the application standards. three protective levels are selected for coordination with the transformer insulation characteristics. In general. As a specific example in protective ratio calculation. the protection it provides to the equipment insulation can be determined. 2. Available data on lightning strikes and simulation studies on impulse transients within substations both indicate that arresters in service may be subjected to fast current impulse waves. a specific current impulse magnitude must be selected based on the system voltage. and the insulation characteristics of the protected equipment. This resultant crest voltage is listed as the front-of-wave (FOW) protective level. For example. The arrester protective characteristic is a continuous function defined over a range of discharge currents and their resultant discharge voltages. 8/20us current impulse test Voltage Current GEDigitalEnergy. 1000 amperes for systems 151 to 325kV. It is quantified in terms of the protective ratio which is the ratio of the equipment insulation withstand to the arrester protective level. An alternate measure is the percent protective margin which is the protective ratio minus one.12. • Impulse Protective Level: This is the crest discharge voltage that results when an 8/20 ∙s current impulse is applied to the arrester. Reference [5] provides guidance for this selection. If the following protective ratios are met or exceeded. To illustrate arrester protection for slower transients. This protective level is derived by applying a series of current wave impulses to an arrester with varying times to crest (1. is generally defined only at three voltage points through the use of the standard switching surge. satisfactory insulation coordination will be achieved according to the minimum recommendations given in ANSI C62. • Front-of-Wave Protective Level: This is the discharge voltage for current impulses having a faster time to crest than the 8/20 ∙s current impulse. The insulation withstand of equipment on the other hand. To facilitate comparison with these three withstands. GE TRANQUELL protective characteristics have been defined for fast impulse currents with times-to-crest shorter than 8 µs. General Electric Company.
