IEEE has just released the IEEE 1409 standard, “IEEE Guide for Application of Power Electronics for Power Quality Improvement on Distribution Systems Rated 1 kV Through 38 kV,” and it is available now from Document Center Inc. The new document introduces and defines the emerging technology of custom power.
Guidelines and performance expectations are provided for the application of power electronic-based equipment on distribution systems of power providers to improve power quality.
This technology involves devices and circuit configurations of power electronic equipment used in utility power distribution systems rated 1 kV through 38 kV for the purposes of mitigating problems associated with power quality.
IEEE 1409 (IEEE 1409-pdf) also includes definitions, general need guidelines, performance objectives, electrical environments, input/output criteria, performance measurements, case studies, bibliography, and engineering trade-offs.
It is a resource to electric utility providers as they enter into this new competitive marketplace. It provides detailed information about custom power devices as options to solve power quality problems.
