Planning for Staging and Transition
.1
Included in the Contract Documents is a broad based staging plan
for phasing various activities, and providing temporary facilities
and services during the Contract.
.2
Plan for staging and transition to staging is primarily the
responsibility of the Contractor. Subject to the approval of the
Consultant, the Contractor may choose different staging schemes
and prepare its plans partially or fully different from the plans
included in the Contract. Such plans will be accepted only if they
meet the objectives of the staging and have credible case for
continued facility operation and completion of Work under the
Contract.
.3
Clear plans for staging shall be prepared by the Contractor and
submitted for approval by the Consultant and the Region’s facility
operations a minimum of 14 Days prior to start of the Work. If the
Region or Consultant should find that the plans are not
acceptable, the Contractor shall revise and resubmit in shortest
time. No consideration shall be given in the overall schedule due
to revision or changes to the plan.
.4
Safety and security of the plant and the personal are of prime
importance. A hazard analysis of each staging plan shall be
prepared according to specific situation and it will be submitted for
evaluation along with the safety measures planned during
transition.
.5
Temporary diesel generators shall be provided where power is
required for operation of the facility and the power interruption is
foreseeable. This provision shall include complete operational
stand-by power including cable, switchboard, connections, all
operational requirements and transfer of power means. The
specific generator size, as specified on the Contract Drawings, is
the minimum requirement. Actual size of generator may be greater
based upon the specific plans prepared by the Contractor. The
generator shall meet the limits outlined in the Ontario Ministry of
the Environment Noise Pollution Control (NPC) documents for
sound attenuation and emission levels. Whenever temporary
generators are deployed they should be adequately maintained
and monitored to ensure uninterrupted power.
.6
Any spills shall be addressed promptly and according to
applicable laws and standards.
.7
A protection coordination check should be done for any breakers
and fuses used for protection of the equipment installed for the
staging activity. The Intent of the coordination check is to ensure
that any fault on the staging network shall only trip the breaker or
blow the fuse protecting the specific parts of staging. It should not
trip the upstream breakers and affect the larger parts of the
facility.

Scope
.1
This Specification applies to the design and supply of the
cable bus feeder system designed for power distribution
and used to transmit large amounts of power, in indoor and
outdoor locations, both above and below ground levels.
The system design is used to provide a lower installed cost
alternative to conventional power distribution systems by
facilitating installation and replacement of circuit
conductors, and by readily accommodating any future
increased load current requirements.
.2
General Information

cable bus feeder system shall include all power cable, a
bare copper ground wire, and all necessary components
required to connect, from terminal to terminal, two
electrical equipment units, and shall be comprised of the
following components:
1.
Cables and cable bus enclosure including cable
supports and cable clamping;
2.
Bare copper ground wire clamped to an inside wall
of the enclosure;
3.

Page 3 of 6
The suppression system shall incorporate a hybrid
designed Metal-Oxide Varistors (MOV) surge suppressor
for the service entrance and other distribution level. The
system shall not utilize silicon avalanche diodes, selenium
cell, air gaps or other components that may crowbar the
system voltage leading to system upset or create any
environmental hazards.
Protection Modes – For a wye configured system, the
device must have directly connected suppression elements
between line-neutral (L-N), line-ground (L-G), and neutralground (N-G). For a delta-configured system, the device
must have suppression elements between line to line (L-L)
and line to ground (L-G).
TVSS Design
.1
Balanced Suppression Platform – The surge current shall be
equally distributed to all MOV components to ensure equal
stressing and maximum performance. The surge suppression
platform must provide equal impedance paths to each matched
MOV.
.2
Electrical Noise Filter – Each unit shall include a high –
performance EMI/RFI noise rejection filter. Products not able to
demonstrate noise attenuation of 50 dB at 100 kHz shall be
rejected.
.3
Extended Range Filter – The Surge Protective Device shall have a
High Frequency Extended Range Tracking Filter in each Line to
Neutral mode with compliance to UL 1283 and NEMA LS1. The
filter shall have published high frequency attenuation rating in the
attenuation frequencies.
.4
Internal Connections – No plug-in component modules or printed
circuit boards shall be used as surge current conductors. All
internal components shall be hardwired with connections utilizing
low impedance conductors and compression fittings.
.5
Standard Monitoring Diagnostics – Each TVSS shall provide
integral monitoring options:
.1
Each unit shall provide a green/red solid state indicator
light on each phase. The absence of a green light and the
presence of a red light, shall indicate which phase(s) have
been damaged.
.2
Remote Status Monitor – The TVSS device must include
form C dry contacts (one NO and one NC) for remote
annunciation of unit status. The remote alarm shall change
state if any of the three phases detect a fault condition.
.3
Audible Alarm – The TVSS shall provide an audible alarm
with a reset pushbutton that will be activated under any
fault condition.

Event Counter – The TVSS shall be equipped with a
system designed to indicate to the user how many surges,
sags, swells and outages have occurred at the location.
The event counter triggers each time under each
respective category after significant event occurs.
Push to Test – The TVSS shall be equipped with push-totest feature, designed to provide users with real time
testing of the suppressor’s monitoring and diagnostic
system. By depressing the test button, the diagnostic
system initiates a self test procedure. If the system is fully
operational, the self test will activate all indicator lights.
Voltage Monitoring – The TVSS shall display true Root
Mean Square (RMS) on the L-N voltage protection mode
on Wye configuration and three L-L voltage on delta
configuration.

Fuse Spring (TFS) technology which allows disconnection
of the suppression component at the overheated stage
common during temporary over voltage condition. For
small fault currents between 100 mA to 30 Amp, or if the
occurrence is over a longer period of time, the TFS will
disconnect first.
