IEEE launches standards projects for shipboard electrical installations


February 28, 2009

IEEE has begun work on developing six new recommended practice standards for shipboard electrical installations. They will build upon, and are intended to be used in conjunction with, IEEE 45, “IEEE Recommended Practice for Electrical Installations on Shipboard”.

The
standards projects will address new shipboard technologies and provide
a consensus of recommended practices for design in marine electrical
engineering as applied specifically to ships, shipboard systems and
equipment.




The new standards projects are:



• IEEE P45.1, Recommended Practice for Electrical Installations on Shipboard – Design

• IEEE P45.2, Recommended Practice for Electrical Installations on Shipboard – Controls and Automation

• IEEE P45.3, Recommended Practice for Electrical Installations on Shipboard – Systems Integration

• IEEE P45.4, Recommended Practice for Electrical Installations on Shipboard – Marine Sectors and Mission Systems

• IEEE P45.5, Recommended Practice for Electrical Installations on Shipboard – Safety Considerations

• IEEE P45.6, Recommended Practice for Electrical Installations on Shipboard – Electrical Testing



The
standards are being developed by the IEEE Working Group for Electrical
Installations on Shipboards, and sponsored by the IEEE Industry
Applications Society’s Petroleum & Chemical Industry Committee.
