Superseded Standard

IEEE 141-1986

IEEE Recommended Practice for Electric Power Distribution for Industrial Plants (IEEE Red Book)

A thorough analysis of basic electrical-systems considerations is presented. Guidance is provided in design, construction, and continuity of an overall system to achieve safety of life and preservation of property; reliability; simplicity of operation; voltage regulation in the utilization of equipment within the tolerance limits under all load conditions; care and maintenance; and flexibility to permit development and expansion. Recommendations are made regarding system planning; voltage considerations; surge voltage protection; system protective devices; fault calculations; grounding; power switching, transformation, and motor-control apparatus; instruments and meters; cable systems; busways; electrical energy conservation; and cost estimation.

IEEE Electric Power Distribution for Industrial Plants, Fourth Edition

Testing of protective equipment is generally thought of in terms of relay testing; but its value goes far beyond mere verification of the relay's calibration. In fact, the greater number of irregularities found do not involve the relays as instruments. The testing should be so planned as to check, as far as possible, the entire scheme from instrument transformers to circuit breaker operation
