Application Guide for Wildlife Protective Devices for Arresters

First Ever Application Guide on this Subject

In an effort to reduce system outages caused by surges, an unlikely place to turn is Wildlife Protective Devices, but think twice. For arresters applied to systems below 34.5kV, where the arresters can be very short, it is estimated that Wildlife induced arrester failures rank in the top 5 causes of arrester failures. If this is the case, then paying attention to this aspect of surge protection could easily pay for itself many times over. Take a look at this guide and see if you are applying these overlooked devices optimally.
