PISCATAWAY, N.J., April 12, 2002 — The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Standards Board approved a revision of IEEE Standard 1124, a guide for high-voltage, direct-current (HVDC) systems that contains definitions and methodologies for analyzing and developing DC system harmonics and DC filter performance requirements.
IEEE 1124-2002, “Guide for Analysis and Definition of DC Side Harmonic Performance of HVDC Transmission Systems,” provides information and guidelines not readily available on these systems from a single source to electric utilities, communication companies and HVDC equipment suppliers. The updated standard is sponsored by the Transmission and Distribution Committee of the IEEE Power Engineering Society.
The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA), a globally recognized standards-setting body, develops consensus standards through an open process that brings diverse parts of an industry together. It has a portfolio of more than 870 completed standards and more than 400 in development. IEEE-SA promotes the engineering process by creating, developing, integrating, sharing and applying knowledge about electro- and information technologies and sciences for the benefit of humanity and the profession.
