Newly Published Standards


IEEE 693TM-2018,   Recommended Practice for Seismic Design of Substations

The recommended practice contains recommendations for the seismic design of substation buildings and structures, and the seismic design and qualification of substation equipment.

This recommended practice is for new substations and planned additions or improvements to existing substations. It is not intended that existing substations must be retrofitted to these recommended practices. Instructions on how to include this recommended practice in specifications are provided. 



IEEE 802.15.10aTM -2019,  Recommended Practice for Routing Packets in IEEE 802.15.4TM Dynamically Changing Wireless Networks - Amendment 1: Fully Defined Use of Addressing and Route Information Currently in IEEE 802.15.10TM

This recommended practice defines a protocol that routes packets in a dynamically changing IEEE 802.15.4TM network with minimal impact from route management. The result is an extension of the area of coverage as the number of nodes increases.




IEEE 3002.3TM-2018,  Recommended Practice for Conducting Short-Circuit Studies and Analysis of Industrial and Commercial Power Systems

This recommended practice describes how to conduct short-circuit studies and analysis of industrial and commercial power systems. It is likely to be of greatest value to the power-oriented engineer with limited experience in this area.




IEEE C62.42.6TM-2018, Guide for the Application of Surge-Protective Components in Surge Protective Devices and Equipment Ports--Part 6 High Frequency Signal Isolation Transformers

The IEEE C62.42TM guide series covers surge protective components (SPCs) used in power and telecom surge protective devices (SPDs) and equipment ports. This part on high-frequency signal isolation-transformer technology SPCs covers: Component construction; Characteristics; Ratings; Application examples.




IEEE C37.09TM-2018,  Standard Test Procedures for AC High-Voltage Circuit Breakers with Rated Maximum Voltage Above 1000 V  

This standard applies to ac high-voltage circuit breakers with rated maximum voltage above 1000 V. It defines various tests that are made on ac high-voltage circuit breakers, except for generator circuit breakers, which are covered in IEC/IEEE 62271-37-013:2015 (formerly IEEE C37.013TM-1997.



Products and Services


IEEE Ubiquitous Green Community Control Network - IEEE 1888TMSeries (Bundle)

This bundle describes heterogeneous networks convergence and scalability, specifies the requirements of network convergence, extends the system architecture defined in IEEE1888TM. It enables IEEE 1888 systems to interoperate with heterogeneous access networks efficiently and improves the efficiency, flexibility, scalability and manageability of IEEE 1888 systems. It enhances security management function for the protocol defined in IEEE 1888.
