7. When using a hammer to connect electrode, hand holding hammer cannot wear gloves. The person holding ground electrode should be at side. Use tools to clamp and stabilize ground electrode. goggles when drilling concrete holes or drilling holes on back.

8. When using induction method to dry an electrical box or transformer, case must be grounded.

9. When using hand-held power tools, case must be well grounded. It is strictly forbidden to screw case ground wire and working neutral wire together into socket. It is necessary to use second wire with ground and third socket with ground.

10. When laying wires, you must choose a suitable wire stripping sponge, and core of wire must not be damaged. When cutting end of wire, edge of knife must be directed outward, and force must be uniform.

11.The rated current of fuse used in electrical equipment must be compatible with its load capacity. It is forbidden to replace fuse with a large one or replace fuse with its metal wire.

12. Before work it is necessary to carry out full preparation. Person responsible forwork, must organize safety measures and precautions for all personnel in accordance with requirements and clearly divide the work. Inexperienced workers and emotional staff cannot be assigned to important technical work and climbing operations.

13. Operators are prohibited from drinking alcohol before work, during work they must be neatly dressed, concentrated, and will not be allowed to leave their posts without permission.

Second, installation

1. The power supply at construction site should use a three-phase five-wire (HN-S) system. The metal shell and wire pipe of all electrical equipment should be securely connected to a special protective neutral line. have at least two connection points, and protective zero line must not be equipped with switches or fuses.

2. The protective neutral line must be laid separately and should not be used for other purposes. In addition to grounding in switchboard or junction box, it must be re-grounded at middle and end of line, and must be connected to protective neutral line, and its grounding resistance does not exceed 10 ohms.

3.The cross section of protective neutral wire must be no smaller than cross section of working neutral wire.At same time, it must meet requirements of mechanical strength.When distance between air laying of protective neutral wire is more than 12m, protective neutral wire should choose insulation less than 10m㎡ Copper wire or insulated aluminum wire less than 16m㎡.

4. The cross section of protective neutral wire connected to electrical equipment must be at least 2.5 m² of insulated stranded copper wire. The uniform marking of protective neutral wire is a green-yellow double color line. .

5. The cross section of neutral line of a single-phase line is same as that of phase line, and cross section of working zero line and zero protection line of three-phase line is at least 50% of cross section of phase line.

6. The span of overhead line should be no more than 35 m, and distance between lines should be at least 0.3 m. The phase sequence of overhead line is arranged: facing load on left, these are L1, N, L2, L3, PE (Note: L1 , L2 and L3 - phase wires, N - working neutral wire, PE - neutral wire of protection).

7. Within span of overhead line, number of joints of each tier of overhead line should not exceed 50% of number of cores of tier, and only one joint is allowed for wire. railways, highways, rivers. There should be no joints within spans of power lines.

8. For overhead lines, concrete or wooden poles should be used. Concrete poles should not have bare veins, circumferential cracks and bends. Wooden poles should not be rotten. Tip diameter should be at least 130mm.1/10 plus 0.6 m , but in soft ground, increase embedment depth accordingly or use reinforcement such as cartridges.

9. When laying a rubber cable overhead, it should be located high along a wall or pole and fixed with insulators. The use of uninsulated metal wires as a strapping is strictly prohibited. The maximum distance of arc sag of cable should be at least 2.5 m.

10. The junction box and junction box should be installed in a dry, ventilatedplace with normal temperature. The box must be protected from rain, dust and locked. Specify purpose, height from ground to bottom of fixed box should be more than 1.3m and less than 1.5m, and height of bottom of mobile box should be more than 0.6m and less than 1.5m. Electrical appliances and wiring in box should be carefully installed, checked and repaired. once a month. The metal back seat and body must be connected to zero for protection, and all sorts of things cannot be put into box.

11. The rated operating leakage current and rated running time of two-stage leakage protection in main junction box and junction box must be reasonably matched so that they perform hierarchical protection function. Each electrical equipment must have its own "one car, one gate" system must be implemented in a special junction box, and leakage protection devices must be installed.
