By Anthony Capkun
July 30, 2013 – IEEE announced approval of four new standards in the 3000 Standards Collection for Industrial & Commercial Power Systems (formerly IEEE Color Books), which sets guidelines and establishes standards for power generation and distribution. These standards, says IEEE, were developed to support more efficient and safe installation, usage and maintenance of a variety of power systems equipment:
• IEEE 3001.8 “Recommended Practice for the Instrumentation and Metering of Industrial and Commercial Power Systems”.
• IEEE 3004.1 “Recommended Practice for the Application of Instrument Transformers in Industrial and Commercial Power Systems”.
• IEEE 3006.7 “Recommended Practice for Determining the Reliability of 7×24 Continuous Power Systems in Industrial and Commercial Facilities”.
• IEEE 3006.9 “Recommended Practice for Collecting Data for Use in Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability Assessments of Industrial and Commercial Power Systems”.
