International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies

TC 7

Overhead electrical conductors


TC 7 Scope

To prepare International Standards and Specifications for fabrication and utilization of overhead electrical conductors, including:

- All types of overhead ground wires,

- All shapes of round and non-round wires,

- Conductors made of various metals such as aluminium, steel, copper, or composite material supporting core etc. and their combinations,

- Test methods for assessment of overhead electrical conductor performance in operation,

- Have the cooperation with TC11 on hardware and accessories directly connected to conductor for the purpose of maintaining electrical/mechanical continuity, -

Have the cooperation with SC86A on aerial optical cables used either for phase conductors or ground wires, such as the publication of the original OPGW standard now named IEC 60794-4.
