Technical Specification
LINE TRAP

1.4 FEATURES
1. Line trap shall be inserted into high voltage transmission line to prevent undue loss of carrier
signal for all power system conditions. Its impedance shall be negligible at power frequency (50
Hz) so as not to disturb power transmission but shall be relatively high over the frequency band
appropriate to carrier transmission.
2. The Line Traps shall be broadband type tuned for its entire carrier frequency range. Resistive
component of impedance within carrier frequency blocking range shall not be less than 570 ohms.
3. Line trap shall consist of a main coil designed to carry continuously the rated current without
exceeding the limit of temperature rise. It shall be provided with a protective device and a tuning
device. Also suitable corona rings shall be provided to meet corona and radio interference
performance as detailed above (clause 1.1, serial no. 7 &10).
4. Line Trap shall be provided with a protective device in the form of surge arrester which shall be
designed and arranged such that neither significant alteration in its protective function nor physical
damage shall result from either temperature rise or the magnetic field of the main coil at
continuous rated current or rated short time current. The protective device shall neither enter into
operation nor remain in operation, following transient actuation by the power frequency voltage
developed across the line trap by the rated short time current. The protective device shall be shunt
connected to the drain coil and tuning device.
5. The surge arrester shall be station class current limiting active gap type. Its rated discharge
current shall be 10 kA. Coordination, however, shall be done by taking 20kA at 8/20 micro sec
discharge current into account. Bidder has to furnish full justification in case the gap-less metal
oxide arrester is recommended at contract stage. The SA provided with line trap of each rating
shall fully comply with the requirements of IS 3070 Part-I/ IEC-99-1Part-1/IEC-60099-4. The SA
provided with the line trap shall be subjected to routine and acceptance tests as per IEC-60099-1
(Part-1) /IEC-60099-4.
6. The Line traps shall be equipped with suitable bird barriers and shall be painted.
7. WELDING
All the welding included in the manufacture of line traps shall be performed by personnel and
procedure qualified in accordance with ASME-IX and all the critical welds shall be subjected to
NDT as applicable.
8. MOUNTING
The Line traps shall be suitable for outdoor pedestal or suspension mounting and shall be
mechanically strong to withstand the stresses due to wind pressure of 260 kg/sq m. All the
accessories and hardware including bolts for fixing the line trap on insulators shall be of
non-magnetic material and shall be supplied by bidder. For pedestal mounting, it shall be mounted
on a tripod structure formed by three solid core bus post insulators.
9. TERMINAL CONNECTORS

Technical Specification
LINE TRAP

The Line Traps shall be suitable for connecting to 4" IPS Aluminium tube or ACSR bundle
conductor with horizontal or vertical take off. Necessary connector shall be supplied by the bidder
as per table -B.
Terminal Connectors shall conform to IS:5561.
No part of clamp or connector (including hardware) shall be magnetic material.
All castings shall be free from blowholes, surface blisters, cracks and cavities. All sharp edges
shall be blurred and rounded off.
Clamps and connectors shall be designed corona controlled. All nuts and bolts shall be suitably
shrouded.
Clamps/connectors shall be designed for the same current ratings as line trap and temperature rise
shall not exceed 35.deg. C over 50.deg. C ambient. No current carrying part shall be less than
10mm thick.
Clamps / connectors shall conform to type test as per IS:5561. Type Test reports shall also be
submitted for following additional tests at contract stage:
a) Visual Corona Extinction Test
b) Radio Interference Voltage Measurement.

1.5 RATING PLATE


Each Line Traps shall be provided with anodized aluminium rating plate of thickness not less than
2 mm, secured permanently on the main coil, tuning device and protective device as per clause 15
of IEC: 60353.
In addition to above requirements, the name of ultimate customer & BHEL shall be given on the
rating plate.

1.6 TESTS
The Line Traps, Connectors & Surge Arresters shall be accompanied by Type, routine and
acceptance testing as per latest IS/ IEC standards.
Bidders shall submit valid reports of type tests carried out within five years of bid opening at
contract stage. These reports should have been conducted on identical / similar equipment to those
offered, in case less than five years old type test reports OR valid type tests are not furnished, the
tests shall be conducted free of charge. No separate type test charges shall be paid.
All valid type test reports as per latest IS/ IEC for Line Traps shall be submitted for approval at
contract stage, which shall include the following
a) Short time current & peak withstand test.

f) Insulation Test
The SA provided with the WT of each rating shall fully comply with the requirement of IS: 3070
Part-1 & IEC-60099-1/IEC-60099-4. It shall conform to type tests as applicable & type test
certificate for the same shall be submitted by the Bidder for approval. The SA provided with Line
Trap shall be subject to routine & acceptance tests as per IEC-60099-1/IEC-60099-4.
Bidder shall also submit type test charges for conducting type tests on Line Traps, Connectors &
Surge Arresters in the event of these tests being conducted even after availability & approval of
valid type tests reports. Such tests shall be conducted on payable basis.
