NETA ATS-2021 Standard for Acceptance Testing Specifications for Electrical Power Equipment and Systems, 2021 Edition
STANDARD by International Electrical Testing Association, 09/18/2020
These specifications are designed to assure that tested electrical equipment and systems are operational, are within applicable standards and manufacturers’ tolerances, and are installed in accordance with design specifications. Use the ANSI/NETA ATS-2021 as a guide to ensure that electrical systems and apparatus not only meet project specifications, but that the manufacturer of the equipment supplied a product that will perform safely and reliably for many years to come.
The NETA Acceptance Testing Specifications was developed for use by those responsible for assessing the suitability for initial energization of electrical power equipment and systems and to specify field tests and inspections that ensure these systems and apparatus perform satisfactorily, minimizing downtime and maximizing life expectancy.
New content for the ANSI/NETA ATS-2021 includes:
- Arc Energy Reduction System Test
- Partial Discharge Survey for Switchgear Updates
