IEC 60137 pdf – Insulated bushings for alternating voltages above 1 000 V
This International Standard specifies the characteristics and tests for insulated bushings.
This standard is applicable to bushings, as defined in Clause 3, intended for use in electricalapparatus，machinery,transformers,switchgear and installations for three-phase alternatingcurrent systems，having highest voltage for equipment above 1 000 V and power frequenciesof 15 Hz up to and including 60 Hz.
Subject to special agreement between purchaser and supplier, this standard may be applied,in part or as a whole, to the following:
bushings used in other than three-phase systems;bushings for high-voltage direct current systems;bushings for testing transformers;
bushings for capacitors.
Special requirements and tests for transformer bushings in this standard apply also to reactorbushings.
This standard is applicable to bushings made and sold separately.Bushings which are a partof an apparatus and which cannot be tested according to this standard should be tested withthe apparatus of which they form part.
