Distribution Commissioning Manual

This Distribution Commissioning Manual is intended for use when undertaking testing and commissioning activities of electrical apparatus on Western Power’s distribution network. It's recognised that equipment procured by Western Power changes over time, therefore this manual does not aim to identify and document individual equipment requirements.
