Overview of IEEE Power Quality Standards

November 13, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

IEEE is one of the two major developers of international standards that give requirements and best practices related to power quality. Historically, power quality standards have been “load based” while more recently interest and emphasis have increased regarding “generation based” documents. In this seminar, we will review many of the relevant IEEE standards in their present form, consider some of their history, and consider what changes are being debated for future revisions. The seminar will include the traditional topics of harmonics, voltage fluctuations and flicker, and unbalance as they relate to energy-consuming installations in such documents as IEEE Stds 519 and 1453 and also as they relate to energy-producing installations in Stds 1547 and 2800. We will also discuss the IEEE Emerald Book (Std 1100) as well as standards related to overall voltage quality, voltage sags, power quality measurement, and others. We will also discuss the organizational and procedural aspects of IEEE standards development, harmonization with the International Electrotechnical Commission, and ways to participate and make contributions.
