  • Comparison of conductive clothing's effectiveness

    Power lines are surrounded by electric and magnetic fields which decrease as a function of the distance. The electric field depends on the voltage level and the magnetic field depends on the current which flows through the conductors. During live-line maintenance the workers are exposed to both high electric and magnetic fields near the conductors. The electric field can be shielded effectively with conductive clothing. This clothing act as a Faraday cage, but the shielding efficiency depends on the material, the configuration [1-4] and the size of the holes as well (some “Faraday holes” are enabled as a function of the frequency). Calculations, simulations and models using finite element method showed that the miss of the face screen decreases the protective effectiveness significantly. This phenomenon was confirmed by different types of measurements as well. The high fields endanger the health of workers, because the exact effects and limits are unknown yet. Most of conductive clothing is manufactured without any face screening, which decrease the shielding efficiency significantly. BME has developed additional face screen which can be applied to conductive clothing originally made without it. Experimental feedbacks from the industry confirm that live-line works became more comfortable and safer with the use of the modified clothing.

  • Conductive clothing for live line working

    Conductive clothing are a mandatory tool to assure the safety of live line working when the bare hand technique is used. This is particularly true for the maintenance of UHV lines. In this work we discuss some tests performed to determine the shielding characteristics of facial masks. Some numerical simulations have been performed to assess how much of the tests prescribed by the IEC 60895 standard are cautionary.

  • Revision of the way of classification of conductive clothing

    In case of the bare-hand method which is often applied especially during high voltage live-line maintenance, conductive clothing is the most important protective equipment to shield the extra-low frequency electric fields - acting as a Faraday cage. During the classification process of these clothing the screening efficiency is inspected besides some other electrical parameters: this shows the effectiveness of a given clothing regarding to the shielding of electric fields. Practical complaints from the worker-side followed by calculations, simulations and measurements in the High Voltage Laboratory of Budapest University of Technology and Economics showed that electric fields inside the clothing may exceed the limits without any face protection; the main issue that these types of clothing may pass the screening efficiency test specified by the related standard. Based on our results a new arrangement has been introduced to improve the efficiency of the measurement while increasing its safety and reliability. This new method is proposed to be implemented in the new edition of IEC 60895. This paper introduces and compares the conventional and the suggested ways of measurements. All the results are proved by both calculations and measurements for validation.

  • Conductive clothing standard evolution and its connection with the European Directive about electromagnetic fields: IEC 60895 International Standard is at its third technical revision: Here are analyzed all the last innovations, also in relation to the recent Safety Legislation Directives

    This paper will describe the differences between the old and new edition of the IEC 60895 standard, analyzing the significant aspects towards the field attenuation and the introduction of new accessories. It will be described more in detail the concept of “classes” which determines different values of electrical field attenuation and matching with accessories. The paper will also present some practical examples of use related to the requirements introduced by the new European Directive about electromagnetic fields.

  • A research on conductive clothing for life working

    This work presents the research being undertaken by the regional faculties of Concordia and La Plata of the Universidad Tecnológica Nacional, regarding conductive garments used in Live Working. We have researched the behavior of the different options provided by the market and what possible changes could be done so that they became more comfortable without compromising shielding conditions. We worked both on new and used clothes with different degrees of wearing, and conductivity and shielding measurements were made in the presence of intense electric and magnetic fields. At this stage of the research, it was established an interesting correlation between the composition of each garment and the shielding that it provides, which represents a very important contribution to manufacturers and users. In light of the results obtained and given that the current garments only protect against electric fields, we have began to work with the aim of achieving some shielding as well against Magnetic Fields. In this sense, we are working on paints containing carbon nanotubes (CNT) to verify what degree of shielding against Magnetic Fields could provide these new materials.

  • Shielding efficiency of conductive clothing during live-line maintenance

    Nowadays live-line maintenance (LLM) is one of the most common methods to repair and maintain energized elements of the power grid. The main advantage of this technique that it represents a balance between technical and economic factors: no consumer disturbance is needed, there is not any service outage caused and losses can be kept as low as possible. Because of these reasons different live-line methods are becoming more and more popular on all voltage levels. Special techniques are available for low, middle and high voltage grids. On high voltage levels “barehand method” is widely applied worldwide. The main principle of this method is an enclosed metal surface around the worker acting as a Faraday cage. Inside an ideal Faraday-cage electric field is zero from outer source. The efficiency of a clothing mainly depends on the size of holes (so called “Faraday-holes”) on the surface. A proper face mesh can guarantee the safety of the live-line worker. Calculations, simulations and measurements in the High Voltage Laboratory of Budapest University of Technology and Economics have proved that poor, coarse or missing face shield decreases the efficiency by the increase of body current.

  • Current issues regarding to the inspection of conductive clothing

    Bare-hand method is a commonly used way of live-line working to maintain the high voltage grid. In case of this technique a galvanic connection is ensured between the energized parts and the conductive clothing of the worker - acting as a Faraday-cage. These clothing are inspected periodically to control their electrical parameters continuously: the most important aspects are the resistance values and the efficiency of their screening. This paper introduces and evaluates the current way of measurement by IEC 60895; recommendations were made to make the inspections safer while their efficiency increases.
