The PAR has been approved.  The WG is proceeding to develop the draft standard.

Upcoming Meetings:
Meetings are currently being held as break-out session of the Traction Power Substation Subcommittee.

Most Recent Standard




This standard covers design, manufacturing, and testing unique to application of power rectifier transformers intended to operate in dc supplied transportation substation applications up to 1500 volts dc nominal output.

At the present time there are no suitable standards governing all requirements for traction power transformers. This standard will provide requirements specific to traction power rectifier transformers supplying power to dc supplied transportation equipment.
