Abstract : The purpose of this investigation was to determine the extent of power line transients at operational Navy shore facilities. This was done by conducting extensive measurements using various power line monitoring and recording equipments. The effort constituted the second phase of a multiphase effort to measure power line transients on Navy ships, shore facilities and aircraft. This report presents the results of measurements performed at thirteen (13) Navy shore facilities over a period of approximately two years. The measurements provided a large amount of data (about 27,500 transients over approximately 134,700 instrumented test hours) that were analyzed to determine the frequency and severity of power line transients at these sites. The approach used in the performance of this investigation was to first reduce the data which was collected by NESEA and then analyze this data with respect to several pertinent parameters. Over 94% of the data compiled by NESEA for the project was acquired using Dranetz Model 606-3 Power Line Disturbance Monitors; the remainder of the information was obtained using the Nicolet Model 2090-3 Digital Storage Oscilloscope.
