“IEEE 3001.8, the first ‘dot’ standard of the IEEE 3001 Standards,
extends the standard to focus on instrumentation and metering in
industrial and commercial power systems,” said
The recommended guidelines of IEEE 3001.8 are intended to give engineers designing or maintaining an industrial and/or a commercial power system the background and fundamental understanding of the system’s technical components.
“The IEEE 3004 Standards are designed and updated to suit the electrical protection engineer in the industrial and commercial facilities and, in general, all electrical industrial engineers who are interested in industrial and commercial systems,” said Rasheek Rifaat, chair of the IEEE Protection & Coordination 3004
The IEEE 3004 Standards are intended to provide engineers with guidance on how to design electrical and commercial power protection systems that are reinforced with approved codes and operational best practices.
“The science of protection itself is associated with coordinated, secure and prompt isolation of a faulty piece of equipment within the electrical system. Coordinated, secure and prompt isolation is critical because leaving a piece of equipment that is in a faulty condition, or an abnormal operating condition, may cause additional damage to the equipment—as well as it may endanger people in the vicinity,” said Rifaat.
As recommended practices, the IEEE 3006.7 and IEEE 3006.9 standards are designed to assist engineers with maintaining the safety and reliability of continuous power systems in industrial and commercial facilities (such as data centers or large government facilities). IEEE 3006.7 provides the structure for determining the reliability of such systems, while the IEEE 3006.9 standard provides the data collection elements for use in their maintainability.
“IEEE 3006.7 provides the methodology and defines what the right definitions and formulas are because there's so many different types of facilities and analysis. IEEE 3006.9 provides recommendations on how to collect the data for support purposes,” said
