One of the ongoing tasks of the subcommittee is to review papers that are published in IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery. The papers are submitted and reviewed using an on-line paper publication database system. For a demonstration of how the paper submittal and review process works, download this Adobe Acrobat tutorial (1.62MB).
The following standards are maintained by workings groups and tasks forces in the subcommittee.
- IEEE Std 519-1992: IEEE Recommended Practices and Requirements for Harmonic Control in Electrical Power Systems
- IEEE Std 1159-2009: IEEE Recommended Practice for Monitoring Electric Power Quality
- IEEE Std 1159.3-2003: IEEE Recommended Practice for the Transfer of Power Quality Data (PQDIF)
- IEEE Std 1250-2011: IEEE Guide for Service to Equipment Sensitive to Momentary Voltage Disturbances
