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 Industrial includes standards from ISO, IEC, IEEE, and others.

ISO/ASME 14414:2019

Pump system energy assessment

This document sets the requirements for conducting and reporting the results of a pumping system energy assessment (hereafter referenced as assessment ) that considers the entire pumping system, from energy inputs to the work performed as the result of these inputs. The objective of a pumping system energy assessment is to determine the current energy consumption of an existing system and identify ways to improve system efficiency. These requirements consist of organizing and conducting an assessment, analysing the data from the assessment, and reporting and documenting assessment findings. This document is designed to be applied, to open and closed loop pumping systems typically used at industrial, institutional, commercial, and municipal facilities, when requested. This document is focused on assessing electrically-driven pumping systems, which are dominant in most facilities, but is also applicable with other types of drivers, such as steam turbines and engines. The document does not a) specify how to design a pumping system, b) give detailed qualifications and expertise required of the person using the International Standard although provides a list of body of knowledge in Annex C, c) address the training or certification of persons, d) specify how to implement the recommendations developed during the assessment, but does include requirements for an action plan, e) specify how to measure and validate the energy savings that result from implementing assessment recommendations, f) specify how to make measurements and how to calibrate test equipment used during the assessment, g) specify how to estimate the implementation cost or conduct financial analysis for recommendations developed during the assessment, h) specify specific steps required for safe operation of equipment during the assessment. The facility personnel in charge of normal operation of the equipment are responsible for ensuring that it is operated safely during the data collection phase of the assessment, i) address issues of intellectual property, security, confidentiality, and safety.

ISO 23570-3:2009

Industrial automation systems and integration - Distributed installation in industrial applications - Part 3: Power distribution bus

ISO 23570 specifies the interconnection of elements in the control system of machine tools and similar large pieces of industrial automation, including cable types, sizes and sheath colours, connector types and contact assignments, and diagnostic functions appropriate to the sensors and actuators. ISO 23570-3:2009 specifies the interconnection of single-phase or three-phase auxiliary motors with their power source. ISO 23570 does not address the design or operation of such equipment with respect to safety issues. It is advisable that appropriate safety standards be consulted for such requirements.

IEEE 141-1993 (R1999)

IEEE Recommended Practice for Electric Power Distribution for Industrial Plants

This IEEE Standards product is part of the Color Books family. A thorough analysis of basic electrical-systems considerations is presented. Guidance is provided in design, construction, and continuity of an overall system to achieve safety of life and preservation of property, reliability, simplicity of operation, voltage regulation in the utilization of equipment within the tolerance limits under all load conditions, care and maintenance, and flexibility to permit development and expansion. Recommendations are made regarding system planning, voltage considerations, surge voltage protection, system protective devices, fault calculations, grounding, power switching, transformation, and motor-control apparatus, instruments and meters, cable systems, busways, electrical energy conservation, and cost estimation.

IEEE Std 493-2007

Recommended Practice for the Design of Reliable Industrial and Commercial Power Systems (Gold Book)

The objective of this book is to present the fundamentals of reliability analysis applied to the planning and design of industrial and commercial electric power distribution systems. The intended audience for this material is primarily consulting engineers and plant electrical engineers and technicians. The design of reliable industrial and commercial power distribution systems is important because of the high cost associated with power outages. It is necessary to consider the cost of power outages when making design decisions for new power distribution systems as well as to have the ability to make quantitative "cost-versus-reliability" trade-off studies. The lack of credible data concerning equipment reliability and the cost of power outages has hindered engineers in making such studies. This edition of the IEEE Std 493 overcomes these obstacles.

IEEE Std 3007.1-2010

IEEE Recommended Practice for the Operation and Management of Industrial and Commercial Power Systems

Recommended practices for the numerous personnel who are responsible for safely operating and managing industrial and commercial electric power facilities are provided. In this recommended practice, plant engineers are provided with a reference source for the fundamentals of safe and reliable operation and management of industrial and commercial electric power distribution systems.

AMCA 850-02 (R2011)

Industrial Process/Power Generation Heavy Duty Dampers for Isolation and Control

The purpose of this publication is to provide basic pertinent information in order to simplify communications between damper manufacturers and designers, specifiers and users of such equipment.

SAE J 1939-75-2021

Application Layer - Generator Sets and Industrial

SAE J1939-75 defines the set of data parameters (SPs) and messages (PGs) for information predominantly associated with monitoring and control generators and driven equipment in electric power generation and industrial applications. The data parameters (SPs) and messages (PGs) previously published within this document are published in SAE J1939DA. Applications using the SAE J1939-75 document must refer to SAE J1939DA for the SAE J1939 parameters and messages for monitoring and controlling the power units, e.g., engines and turbines, that power the generators and driven industrial equipment.
