A monthly update on standards and related solutions.
Newly Published Standards
  • IEEE 1859™-2017, Standard for Relaxor-Based Single Crystals for Transducer and Actuator Applications

    This document covers the physical and electromechanical requirements for relaxor based piezoelectric single crystals of PMN-PT and PZN-PT solid solutions of perovskite structure. Standardization of these promising new materials will help facilitate their use in the medical and naval sonar fields. This standard also includes a definition of terms and recommended practices for measuring the physical and electromechanical properties of these materials.

  • IEEE C62.92.6™-2017, Guide for Application of Neutral Grounding in Electrical Utility Systems, Part VI--Systems Supplied by Current-Regulated Sources

    New forms of generation and energy storage are now being interconnected to three-phase electric utility systems via power-electronic conversion devices that are controlled as constant current or constant power devices, but the conventional understanding of system grounding is inadequate to address these situations. This guide defines neutral grounding and presents basic considerations of the selection of neutral grounding parameters that will provide for the control of overvoltage on such systems.
