1100-1992 - IEEE Recommended Practice for Powering and Grounding Sensitive Electronic Equipment
Description: Recommended design, installation, and maintenance practices for electrical power and grounding (including both power-related and signal-related noise control) of sensitive electronic processing equipment used in commercial and industrial applications are presented. The main objective is to provide a consensus of recommended practices in an area where conflicting information and confusion, stemming primarily from different view points of the same problem, have dominated. Practices herein address electronic equipment performance issues while maintaining a safe installation. A brief description is given of the nature of power quality problems, possible solutions, and the resources available for assistance in dealing with problems. Fundamental concepts are reviewed. Instrumentation and procedures for conducting a survey of the power distribution system are described. Site surveys and site power analysis are considered. Case histories are given to illustrate typical problems.
