Newly Published Standards


IEEE C57.109TM-2018, Guide for Liquid-Immersed Transformers Through-Fault-Current Duration

This guide applies to transformers referenced in IEEE C57.12.00TM as Categories I, II, III, and IV. It sets forth recommendations essential for the application of overcurrent protective devices applied to limit the exposure time of transformers to short-circuit currents (see IEEE C37.91TM).This guide is not intended to imply overload capability.



IEEE C37.30.3TM-2018, Standard Requirements for High Voltage Interrupter Switches, Interrupters, or Interrupting Aids Used On or Attached To Switches Rated for Alternating Currents Above 1000 Volts

This standard applies to interrupting switches, interrupters or interrupter aids for use on switches rated above 1000 V ac and used indoors, outdoors, or in enclosures for non-fault current interrupting for which an interrupting duty is assigned.)




IEEE 1903.2TM-2017, Standard for Service Composition Protocols of Next Generation Service Overlay Network

This standard specifies protocols among Service Composition (SC) Functional Entity (FE), Service Discovery and Negotiation (SDN) FE, Context Information Management (CIM) FE, Service Routing (SR) FE and Service Policy Decision (SPD) FE to support service composition capabilities in next generation service overlay network.
