IEEE 1159.3-2019

IEEE Recommended Practice for Power Quality Data Interchange Format (PQDIF)

A file format suitable for exchanging power quality related measurement and simulation data in a vendor independent manner is defined in this recommended practice. The format is designed to represent all power quality phenomena identified in IEEE Std 1159-2009, IEEE Recommended Practice on Monitoring Electric Power Quality, other power related measurement data, and is extensible to other data types as well. The recommended file format utilizes a highly compressed storage scheme to help reduce disk space and transmission times. The utilization of Globally Unique Identifiers (GUID) to represent each element in the file permits the format to be extensible without the need for a central registration authority.

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.


P1159.3

Recommended Practice for Power Quality Data Interchange Format (PQDIF)

This recommended practice specifies the Power Quality Data Interchange Format (PQDIF) for the transfer of power quality data between monitoring instruments and computers. This includes raw data as well as processed, simulated, proposed, specified, and calculated data. The scope of the transfer file format includes the power quality measurements as well as appropriate characterization parameters, such as sampling rate, resolution, calibration status, instrument identification, location, and other related metadata or characteristics. The recommended practice also provides best practices for representing data and guidelines for transferring power quality data.

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


1159.3-2003

IEEE Recommended Practice for the Transfer of Power Quality Data

This recommended practice defines a file format suitable for exchanging power quality related measurement and simulation data in a vendor independent manner. The format is designed to represent all power quality phenomena identified in IEEE Std 1159 TM -1995, IEEE Recommended Practice on Monitoring Electric Power Quality, other power related measurement data, and is extensible to other data types as well. The recommended file format utilizes a highly compressed storage scheme to minimize disk space and transmission times. The utilization of globally unique identifiers (GUID) to represent each element in the file permits the format to be extensible without the need for a central registration authority.
