IEEE 1889-2018 - IEEE Guide for Evaluating and Testing the Electrical Performance of Energy Saving Devices
Standard Details
Described in this guide are methods to evaluate and test the electrical performance of energy saving devices (ESDs). Measurement methods that focus on monitoring the power consumed or generated by the observed load or generator without the ESD connected into the circuit and with the ESD connected and energized into the circuit are described. Detailed protocols describe step-by-step the testing circuits, the type and accuracy of evaluation instrumentation, and the order of the test measurements. Special emphasis is given to sources of measurement errors due to incorrect connection of instrumentation, inadequate instrumentation, or incorrect interpretation of results. Contained in Annex B are practical examples and explanations of the physical mechanisms of phenomena that may cause errors. This guide applies to any electrically connected ESD controlling electrical power delivered from a source and powering an electrical load. While an independent, certified testing laboratory might be contracted to perform ESD testing, the intent of this standard is to provide guidance to those involved with ESDs wishing to obtain accurate and objective data to aid in evaluating ESD performance.
