ASTM WK43180

    Work Item: ASTM WK43180 - Revision of D1868 - 07 Standard Test Method for Detection and Measurement of Partial Discharge (Corona) Pulses in Evaluation of Insulation Systems

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D1868 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: D09.12 | Committee D09 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    Portions of the D1868 standard are attached for revision. The changes being made are the elimination of the non-mandatory terms may and should and some associated language revisions.
