History

Commonwealth was established in 1988, following the closing of another major engineering firm's Jackson, Michigan, office. The founders had worked closely together on domestic and foreign electric utility projects for many years out of the Jackson office. Rather than leave Jackson, Commonwealth's founders left the company and took action to incorporate under a name that was—and remains—well known and respected in the electric power industry. The group devoted itself to structuring a new employee-owned company with the intent of upholding the previous Commonwealth Associates Inc.'s reputation for providing high-quality engineering and consulting services. Today, Commonwealth's staff of approximately 270 professional and technical employees represents one of the most skilled, experienced technical resources available to analyze, plan, design, and construct electrical power projects.

Office Locations

Commonwealth serves clients throughout the U.S. from its offices in Jackson, Michigan, Everett and Liberty Lake, Washington; Kennesaw, Georgia; Columbus, Ohio; and Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Overview of Guide for GIL Applications C37.122.4

03:45 PM 05:00 PM Shenandoa

This new release GIL Guide is giving information on the application of gas-insulated transmission lines (GIL) for voltages of 72,5 kV and above. This Guide is based on the IEC standard for GIL IEC 62271-204 where the technical requirements, type and on-site test for GIL are defined. Guidance for the planning, permitting, design, equipment specification, installation, commissioning, operation, and maintenance of gas-insulated transmission lines is provided in this project. Only technical aspects are addressed in this guide. Commercial and legal issues associated with gas-insulated transmission lines are not considered.
The purpose of this guide is to provide technical assistance for the selection, application, and project management for a gas-insulated line (GIL) transmission project from initial planning through decommissioning and retirement.
The tutorial will give a short overview on the content of the new IEEE standard.
