    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Guidance for national and economical solutions rather than strict rules for insulation coordination. Deals with the selection of the electric strength of equipment, of surge arresters or protective spark gaps, and considers the extent to which control of switching overvoltages may be useful.
