IEEE Standards Information
Home of the IEEE standards; in particular 446; 519; 1100 (“The Emerald Book”, considered the key IEEE reference on power quality); 1159; 1250 and 1346.
A site by the Copper Development Organization responsible for promoting the use of copper; check out the reference primer on power quality.
Power Standards Laboratory
A web site from principal, Alex McEachern, about voltage sags.
Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.
A good power quality reference is UL Standard 1449, second edition that describes performance specifications for surge protection devices.
Power Quality Guidelines for Energy Efficient Device Application
This guidebook has three primary objectives:
- To improve guidelines for minimizing any undesirable power quality impacts of energy saving technologies;
- To provide an understanding of the energy savings potential of power quality related technologies; and,
- To provide guidelines for evaluating “black box” technologies.
