    This standard covers the application of gapped silicon-carbide surge arresters to safeguard electric power equipment against the hazards of abnormally high voltage surges of various origins. Such overvoltages may cause flashovers and serious damage to equipment, thereby jeopardizing the supply of power to users. It is essential to prevent this by the proper coordination of surge protection devices with the insulation strength of the protected equipment.<> View full abstract»
