Scope

1.1

This Standard specifies the technical requirements for the interconnection of distributed energy resources (DER) and distribution systems up to 50 kV line to line at the point of common coupling (PCC).

1.2

This Standard does not define the maximum DER capacity or the upper voltage limit for installations that are interconnected with a single PCC or connected to a given feeder.

1.3

The objective of this Standard is to specify minimum requirements for the

(a)   safety of persons;

(b)   continuity of service; and

(c)   protection of property.

1.4

This Standard does not apply to secondary network connections and does not address

(a)   protection of the power producer’s facility;

(b)   operating requirements for DER units;

(c)   transmission system impact and upgrades;

(d)   planning, design, or operation of the distribution system or DER system;

(e)   metering, rates, tariffs, and other contractual or commercial issues associated with interconnection; or

(f)    interconnection of distributed energy resources and distribution systems that are not ultimately connected to a province-wide or regional electricity grid (i.e., remote locations). The wires owner of the remote grid may apply the standard in part or whole, where appropriate for the remote grid.

1.5

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the Standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include      requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements. Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (nonmandatory) to define their application.

1.5  

In CSA standards, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

1.6

The values given in SI units are the units of record for the purposes of this Standard. The values given in parentheses are for information and comparison only.

1.1 These requirements cover bare and covered ferrules intended for field wiring and factory wiring for use in accordance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA-70 and Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.

1.2 These ferrules are intended to facilitate the connection of stranded wire on to devices, such as terminal blocks. Their purpose is to treat stripped wire and prevent turned back strands during installation. They are intended to be used to attach to one stranded copper conductor or two stranded copper conductors of the same size.

1.3 When intended for use with one conductor, Tthese ferrules are suitable for use with 1/0 - 20 26 AWG, 50 - 0.5 0.14 mm2 , stranded copper conductors.

1.4 When intended for use with two conductors, these ferrules are suitable for use with (2) 6 - (2) 26 AWG, (2) 16 - (2) 0.25 mm2, stranded copper conductors.

1.5 These ferrules are intended to be terminated in wire connection devices rated for solid conductors.

1.6 Ferrules are not intended for use in IDC (insulation displacement connection) terminal blocks.

1.7 This standard does not apply to wire connectors such as pin adapters covered in CSA C22.2 No. 65 or UL 486A-486B.
