These rules are intended for workers concerned with operational maintenance of catenary network arrangements, transmission lines, and aerial lines; and can also be utilized by students of the higher educational institutions and technical schools. Specifically, the pamphlet covers direct and alternating current catenary network arrangements; 6-35 kV transmission lines, operated by the energy feeding section, installed upon catenary network and separately standing bearings; and aerial lines of tension as high as 400 v mounted on the catenary network bearing. The rules are not intended for transmission lines of the automatic blocking system. The contents include: technical norms for operational maintenance of catenary network arrangements transmission lines and aerial lines; types of catenary suspensions; conductor parameters; wear and tear; distribution of conductors; isolators; cross braces; locks and electrical connectors; central anchoring; conductor inserts and joints; load compensators and conductor anchoring; grounding; protections against short circuit currents, overload, and burnouts; intersection of catenary network conductors by conductors of other aerial lines; protective arrangements and safeguards. The appendices cover; tables for determination of wear and tear of the catenary conductor independently of cross section height measurement methods and analysis of wear and tear of catenary conductors on electrified railroads: Finally, rules of operational maintenance and protection against corrosion of concrete and iron bearings of the catenary network.
