IEEE PES Working Group
The Power Quality Definitions Working Group met at the IEEE PES Winter Power Meeting in New York City on Tuesday, February 4, 1997 from 9:00 -10:00 am. Twenty three people signed the official attendance record as attending the meeting.
The meeting started with general introductions of those present and circulation of the meeting attendance sheet. The minutes of the previous meeting were reviewed and accepted per a motion by the group.
Discussion was held regarding the following issues:
It was noted that Section 3.0 of the draft was basically a list of P1159 terms but with a few other terms brought in from other documents. As was discussed and agreed at the previous working group meeting, some P1159 terms related to instrumentation that were in Draft 1.0 have been deleted from Draft 2.0. For example, accuracy ratio, CT and PT have been deleted. Grounding and wiring terms have been retained.
Section 3.0 is thought to be 99% complete at this time with the exception that perhaps a term here or there needs to be added, deleted, or adjusted. All working group members were instructed to review the Section 3.0 terms and to respond to the working group chairs by March 4, 1997 with any recommendations for additions, deletions, or adjustments to that section. The working group chairs will accept recommended changes to Section 3.0 via e-mail or by regular mail. The goal is to receive all recommended changes in time to prepare a revised document prior to the summer meeting (Draft 3.0). It was pointed out that Section 4.0 is in its early stages of development and that less than 30% of the terms have been expanded to include detailed application descriptions. Suggestions for revisions of this section will also be accepted and are requested by March 4, however, since this section is very incomplete it will be extensively revised and upgraded even if no suggestion are received.
Larry Morgan suggested that each member of the working group be
sent an electronic copy of the document to facilitate changes.
Phil Barker agreed to take the lead on this and would send out
a Word 6.0 file to each working group member via e-mail. The issue
of a web site was also brought up and Phil Barker indicated that
he would get one up and running within a few weeks with the electronic
document on it.
As far as the next formal meeting is concerned, Tim Unruh's request
that it be held at the IAS conference in October was discussed.
No one was opposed to the idea and it was generally felt that
IAS is a very good forum for the group meeting. There was concern
expressed as to whether or not a meeting room could be obtained.
The conclusion of this discussion was that the next formal meeting
of the working group is tentatively scheduled for the IAS conference
in October 1997 (New Orleans) assuming that we are able to get
a meeting room. Tim Unruh will chair the meeting. Larry Ray or
one of the two working group chairs will host an informal meeting
in Berlin. Announcements for both of these will be sent out well
in advance so working group members can plan their schedules accordingly.
