    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Handbook provides support for AS/NZS 7000:2010, which is the Standard that provides requirements, methods and guidance for the design and construction of overhead electrical power lines. It applies to alternating current lines operating at a nominal frequency of 50 Hz.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Handbook is a companion to and is intended to be read in conjunction with the Overhead Line Design Standard, AS/NZS 7000, Overhead line design - Detailed procedures (referred to as AS/NZS 7000 in this Handbook), which is a comprehensive treatment on the design of overhead power lines and which supersedes the ENA C(b)1 Guidelines for the Design and Maintenance of Overhead Distribution and Transmission Lines.
