A High Voltage Audit is an independent and final step in the design and construction process for new electrical installations or an existing electrical installation that has had electrical installation work performed on it.
Protech PAS provides accredited HV Auditors to carry out an audit of a new or altered high voltage installation as per the requirements of the Electrical Safety Regulation 2013 in Queensland.
This is done by determining and requesting the required documentation for review and conducting a physical inspection of the new or altered high voltage installation after the electrical work has been performed.
An energization clearance authority is issued once the documentation review and site inspection is deemed to be compliant with the relevant standards.
High voltage is defined as greater than 1000V AC RMS or 1500V ripple-free DC
Section 221 of the Electrical Safety Regulation 2013 requires that an accredited auditor inspect high voltage electrical installations prior to connection or reconnection to a source of electricity, if:
The owner of the high voltage installation must ensure that:
A pre-commissioning inspection ensures that the installation, related electrical equipment and protective equipment have correct certification and comply with certification documentation and appropriate standards.
To make this easier for you, we’ve created this free HV Compliance Checklist to help your high voltage equipment installation and operations. This document can help determine if these practices are being executed and will keep track of any suggested action that needs to happen.
