2 Introduction Different countries in the world, such as China, India and Japan, are planning and realizing UHV AC systems with the highest voltage of 1100kV and 1200kV. The research activities for UHV transmission within previous CIGRE SC33 has provided a good basis on the basic design for them. In the recent practice of UHV system, insulation coordination throughout substation and transmission line are generally based on metal oxide surge arresters and gas insulated switchgears (GIS, MTS). My presentation will cover the recent practice on insulation coordination for UHV AC systems from system aspects, the approved CDV (28/195/CDV) and the future work of CIGRE WG C4.306 (Insulation coordination for UHV AC systems)
3 Recent Practice of Insulation Coordination for UHV AC Transmission System
4 UHV Insulation Coordination Concept Practical application of high performance metal oxide surge arrester Reliable circuit breaker with closing and/or opening resistor LIWV (Substation) Rational Insulation Specification SIWV (Substation) Switching Overvoltage Insulation Design Level (Transmission Line) Insulation coordination throughout substation and transmission line Reduction of insulation levels to a reasonable level by sophisticated technologies.
5 Overvoltages specific to UHV System (1) [TOV] Load rejection at a heavily loaded long line of UHV system produces TOV whose amplitude is p.u.. [Slow-front overvoltage] Closing, opening, and ground fault overvoltages are of particular importance for UHV systems because they are the predominant factor of transmission tower size. [Fast-front overvoltage] Lightning overvoltages within UHV substation are greatly suppressed because they are the predominant factor of substation equipment size. [Very fast transient overvoltage (VFTO)] Disconnector switching overvoltages in UHV GIS are likely to exceed the lightning overvoltage if no measures are taken to control them.
6 Overvoltages specific to UHV System (2) Precise digital analyses Example of switching overvoltage calculation by EMTP and its measuring results in Japan’s 1100 kV project Excellent agreement Accurate result of analyses
7 Switching Overvoltage Level and Suppression Measures Surge arresters and closing resistor have been basically used to suppress switching overvoltage on transmission line below switching overvoltage insulation design level. Open resistors have been adopted in Italy and Japan.
8 Application of High Performance Surge Arresters and LIWV High performance surge arrester can be applied in order to determine rational LIWV.
9 Standard Withstand Voltage for UHV Substation Equipment
10 LIWV and SIWV for UHV Substation Equipment Approved CDV(28/195/CDV) for amendment for IEC Notes (4) This value is only applicable to the phase to earth insulation of single phase equipment not expose to air. (5) Presently in the IEC edition 6.2/ , Um=1200 kV is a standard value but in a proposed CDV submitted nowadays for vote the status is only under consideration. In the final version of this amendment, the final status of Um=1200 kV will be the one finally adopted in the revision or confirmation of IEC standard under the responsibility of TC 8.

27 Conclusion Sophisticated insulation coordination is necessary for UHV system and should be technical-economically optimized throughout the UHV transmission line and substation. Reasonable insulation levels have been specified on the effective reduction of lightning and switching overvoltages by the application of high performance surge arresters and other measures, such as closing and/or opening resistors.. A new CIGRE WG C4.306 “Insulation coordination for UHV AC system” will review and discuss the recent practice of UHV insulation coordination based on the approved CDV (28/195/CDV) and will investigate the safety factor. Finally, the WG will propose the recommendation for “Application Guide”.
