P3001.2 - Recommended Practice for Evaluating the Electrical Service Requirements of Industrial and Commercial Power Systems

IEEE's Industrial Applications Society has determined a need for reorganizing the IEEE's Color Books Series, 13 books that currently cover various topics that fall under the purview of the Industrial and Commercial Power Industry. This comprehensive initiative, driven by the volunteer leadership of I&CPS, acknowledges that the continued and long-term maintenance of IEEE's Color Books has been affected by significant attrition due to declining volunteer resources, the complexity involved in updating each book, and content duplication among the books. The existing content will be integrated into a newly proposed structure by technical topics that will allow for easy updating, more streamlined content, and elimination of duplicative material. [Note: This purpose will not be included in the document]This recommended practice covers the evaluation of the electrical service requirements of industrial and commercial power systems. It describes various ways to take power from the serving utility (e.g., radial, loop). It then covers the specific requirements for service entrance equipment, as well as service equipment rooms, vaults and pads, and other ways of connecting to the utility's service point. Special application requirements are also discussed.
