There are many different inspection criteria available. However, none of them should really be considered universal. The one that is right for one site, may not suit another. I do believe they should be site specific.

You also need to be aware that they should be used with caution. Temperature alone should not be used to classify a fault.

If you attend an ITC level 1 course there are some examples of severity criteria in the course litrature.

Do you mean mathematical fault calculation on an electrical system or fault as in hotspot. For electrical system, yes there is but as in thermography, I agree with Bob. Determining fault thorugh thermal scanning can be a complimentary procedure in determining fault.
