Whether you work with hydro, wind, thermal, or alternative power generation; power generators; low voltage or high voltage distribution; power distribution racks or cables; smart grid or ensuring workplace safety, the power industry has a strong focus on standardization and interoperability. This list on Equipment includes standards from ISO and others.

IEEE 1250-2018

IEEE Guide for Identifying and Improving Voltage Quality in Power Systems

The use of some electrical equipment attached to typical power systems creates power quality concerns. There is an increasing awareness that some equipment is not designed to withstand the surges, faults, distortion, and reclosing duty present on typical utility distribution systems. Traditional concerns about steady-state voltage levels and light flicker due to voltage fluctuation also remain. These concerns are addressed by this guide by documenting typical levels of these aspects of power quality and indicating how to improve them. Other documents that treat these subjects in more detail are referenced.

IEEE Std C93.5-1997

American National Standard Requirements for Single Function Power-Line Carrier Transmitter/Receiver Equipment

This standard applies to single function power-line carrier (PLC) transmitter/receiver equipment used to transfer information over power transmission circuits. This standard does not apply to transmitted receiver equipment used over power distribution circuits for the purpose of load management or distribution automation.

IEC 62382 Ed. 2.0 b:2012

Control systems in the process industry - Electrical and instrumentation loop check

IEC 62382:2012 describes the steps recommended to complete a loop check, which comprises the activities between the completion of the loop construction (including installation and point-to-point checks) and the start-up of cold commissioning. This standard is applicable for the construction of new plants and for expansion/retrofits (i.e. revamping) of E&I installations in existing plants (including PLC, BAS, DCS, panel-mounted and field instrumentation). This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2006 and constitutes a technical revision. The main changes with respect to the previous edition are: The definition of the documents mentioned in the standards is in accordance with IEC 62708: Documents for Electrical and Instrumentation Projects in the Process Industry. Subclause 6.3 has been revised.

NECA/EGSA 404-2014

Standard for Installing Generator Sets

This standard describes installation procedures for generators and related accessories and systems that are permanently installed for on-site standby or emergency power generation that are typically fueled by natural gas or diesel. Such generators may be defined as ôemergency systemsö or ôlegally-required standby systemsö intended to supply power for emergency or life-safety applications in accordance with NFPA 70, National Electrical Code.

DIN EN 45510-2-3:2001

Guide for procurement of power station equipment - Part 2-3: Electrical equipment; Stationary batteries and chargers; English version of DIN EN 45510-2-3 (FOREIGN STANDARD)

The document gives guidance on writing the technical specifications for the procurement of lead-acid and nickel-cadmium (alkaline) stationary batteries and chargers for installation in electric power generation plants.

DIN EN 45510-2-2:1999

Guide for procurement of power station equipment - Part 2-2: Electrical equipment - Uninterruptible power supplies (FOREIGN STANDARD)

The document gives guidance on writing the technical specification for the procurement of static a.c. uninterruptible power supplies (UPS's) for installation in electrical power generation plants.

AWS D14.6/D14.6M:2012

Specification for Welding of Rotating Elements of Equipment

This specification establishes minimum acceptable requirements for weld joint detail and fabrication by welding of rotating elements in new equipment. This specification also applies to the modification or repair by welding of rotating elements in existing equipment. Equipment types covered by this specification include, but are not limited to: crushers, fans, impellers, centrifugal impellers, kilns, pulpers, gears, sheaves, drive trains, crankshafts, flywheels, power transmission shafts, air moving devices, blowers, and rotating elements of hydro electric generating equipment. The intent of this specification is not to include steam or combustion turbine rotors, blading, or camshafts. This specification also applies to such products and procedures that are agreed to by the Manufacturer, Fabricator, or Repair Organization and the Owner. Requirements contained herein are not intended to nullify or void the requirements of any law or governmental agency regulation or other codes applied to components. Additional requirements may be invoked by contract documents. The specification establishes the minimum acceptable practice at the time of its publication. It is not intended to restrict new developments or in any way to inhibit advances in the art and science of welding. This specification is intended to promote the following:(1) High quality construction and repair of welded rotating elements of equipment;(2) Adequate initial and sustained performance of welded rotating elements of equipment;(3) Personnel safety;(4) Clear, concise fabrication practices that will be readily understood by the Manufacturer, Fabricator, or Repair Organization, Fabricator, Owner, and user; and(5) Conservation of human and material resources in the fabrication of welded rotating elements of equipment. This specification makes use of both U.S. Customary Units and the International System of Units (SI). These measurements may not be exact equivalents; therefore each system must be used independently of the other without combining in any way. The specification with the designation D14.6 uses U.S. Customary Units. The specification D14.6M uses SI Units. The latter are shown in appropriate columns in tables or within brackets ([ ]) when used in the text. Safety and health issues and concerns are beyond the scope of this standard, and therefore are not fully addressed herein. Safety and health information is available from other sources, including, but not limited to ANSI Z49.1, Safety in Welding, Cutting, and Allied Processes, and applicable federal and state regulations.

ASTM D6224-16

Standard Practice for In-Service Monitoring of Lubricating Oil for Auxiliary Power Plant Equipment

1.1 This practice covers the requirements for the effective monitoring of mineral oil and phosphate ester fluid lubricating oils in service auxiliary (non-turbine) equipment used for power generation. Auxiliary equipment covered includes gears, hydraulic systems, diesel engines, pumps, compressors, and electrohydraulic control (EHC) systems. It includes sampling and testing schedules and recommended action steps, as well as information on how oils degrade. 1.2 This practice does not cover the monitoring of lubricating oil for steam and gas turbines. Rather, it is intended to complement Practice D4378 . 1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
