IEEE-SA - Newswire November 2017
A monthly update on standards and related solutions.
Newly Published Standards
  • IEEE 1012™-2016, Standard for System, Software and Hardware Verification and Validation

    Validation and Verification processes establish the criteria by which software, hardware and systems can be measured against their intended functions, to evaluate whether they are appropriate for acquisition and satisfactory in their performance throughout their life cycles. This standard establishes a common framework for V&V processes, activities, and tasks in support of all system, software, and hardware life cycle processes, and defines V&V tasks, required inputs, and required outputs in each life cycle process.

  • IEEE C62.34™-2017, Standard for Test Methods and Performance of Low-Voltage (1000 V rms or Less) Surge Protective Devices Used on Secondary Distribution Systems (Between the Transformer Low-Voltage Terminals and the Line Side of the Service Equipment)

    This standard, the only one for the surge protection devices known as secondary arresters, applies to surge protective devices designed for application on the low-voltage supply mains (1000 V rms and less, frequency between 48 and 62 Hz) and intended to be connected at locations between, and including, the secondary terminals of the distribution transformer and the line side of the service entrance equipment.

  • IEEE 802.1Qci™-2017, Standard for Local and metropolitan area networks--Bridges and Bridged Networks--Amendment 28: Per-Stream Filtering and Policing

    This standard specifies procedures and managed objects for a bridge to perform frame counting, filtering, policing, and service class selection for a frame based on the particular data stream to which the frame belongs, and a synchronized cyclic time schedule. Policing and filtering functions include the detection and mitigation of disruptive transmissions by other systems in a network, improving the robustness of that network.

  • IEEE C57.140™-2017, Guide for Evaluation and Reconditioning of Liquid Immersed Power Transformers

    The guide is intended to aid users in selecting the proper approaches to upgrading, reconditioning, refurbishing, or other activities in extending the useful life of a transformer. It covers insulating oil maintenance and diagnostics, oil reclamation, testing methods for the determination of remaining insulation (paper) life, and upgrades of auxiliary equipment.

  • IEEE C57.12.58™-2017, Guide for Conducting a Transient Voltage Analysis of a Dry-Type Transformer Coil

    Transient voltage analysis is used to determine the response of various parts of the coil to a 1.2 x 50 microsecond impulse wave. This document is used as part of an analysis of a dry-type transformers electrical design, and as part of the requirements for conducting a test in IEEE C57.12.60™.

New Products and Solutions
