IEEE PHD Cybersecurity Standards Roadmap (PDF)
The document contains the background related to PHD cybersecurity, a detailed risk analysis of use cases specific to PHD types (process part of PHD cybersecurity), a scalable information security toolbox appropriate for PHD communication (capability part of PHD cybersecurity), and harmonization of threat modeling, scoring, and principal security controls across device types and organizations. This Standards Roadmap will become the input for standardization of secure interoperability in open consensus standards (e.g., by IEEE 11073 PHD WG), industry standards (e.g., by Bluetooth MedWG) and guidelines (e.g., by PCHA GTC).  Download (PDF)

Pre-Standards Workstream Report: Clinical IoT Data Validation and Interoperability with Blockchain (PDF)
The IEEE‐Standards Association (IEEE‐SA) pre‐standards workstream for Clinical Internet of Things (IoT) data validation and interoperability with blockchain was initiated to determine if a viable standards framework could be established to enable the validation of data generated from a clinical‐grade IoT device and shared through the interoperability of blockchain technology. This paper provides a summary of the workstream.  Download (PDF)

Conformity Assessment IEEE 1547: Interconnection and Interoperability of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and Associated Electric Power Systems (EPSs) Interfaces (PDF)
This document is a tool to assess conformance of a Distributed Energy Resource (DER) Interconnection during the commissioning phase of a DER Interconnection to the IEEE 1547 as may be specified in the governing Interconnection Agreement executed between the Area Electric Power System (EPS) Operator and DER Owner. Commissioning agents and DER owners that participate in The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Conformity Assessment Program (ICAP) 1547 Certification Program must comply with this conformity assessment document and requirements in this document. Conformance with this document is assessed as part of the ICAP certification program.  Download (PDF)

IEEE Synchrophasor Measurement Test Suite Specification - Version 3 (PDF)
The scope of this TSS is limited to the testing of PMU electrical performance. As of this revision of the TSS, the standard for PMU performance is IEC/IEEE Joint Standard 60255-118-1-2018, IEEE/IEC International Standard-Measuring relays and protection equipment--Part 118-1: Synchrophasor for power systems-Measurements. This TSS will be revised as the standard for PMU performance is revised. Users are encouraged to check for the latest revision of this document. This is the third revision: Version 1 complies with IEEE Std C37.118-2011. Version 2 complies with IEEE Std C37.118.1a-2014. Version 3 complies with IEC/IEEE 60255-118-1-2018.  Download (PDF)

The National Electrical Code® (NEC®)and the National Electrical Safety Code® (NESC®): Partners for a Safer Tomorrow, September 2016 (PDF)
In the history of the world, the harnessing of electricity ranks right up there with the discovery of fire. As a technology that touches nearly every aspect of our modern life, it’s hard to imagine how things would be without electricity...  Download (PDF)

Pity the lowly utility pole. Despite the fact that 97% of the electrical transmission miles in the U.S. use overhead facilities, poles are so common a slight that they readily fade from everyday view into the unseen background.  Download (PDF)

The Changing Face of US Power Production, July 2019 (PDF)
The humble beginnings of commercial electrical power generation in the U.S. is generally marked by the 1882 launch of Thomas Edison's Pearl Street Station in Manhattan.  Although only capable of an initial output of around 35 kilowatts (kW), it signified the start of the technological and industry evolution that continues to the current day.  Download (PDF)

Grid Resilience and the NESC, April 2018 (PDF)
Resilience1 is a word that has meaning in both our personal and professional lives. In everyday use, resilience is a positive attribute that generally refers to the ability to bounce back–whether it be an individual’s ability to rebound from unforeseen difficulties, or the ability of infrastructure to recover from disruptive forces or events.  Download (PDF)
