An Overview of IEEE 1250

Guide for Identifying and Improving Voltage Quality in Power Systems

 

The IEEE 1250 standard was developed in response to the introduction of modern electronics onto an older electrical grid. These newer electronics were not necessarily built to withstand the traditional fluctuations in voltage from a traditional grid.

The standard is broken into a few different sections covering generic terms, recommended methods of taking measurements, recommended statistical analysis and a final section wherein the role of the electric utility come into play with regard to these measurements, standards, and recommendations.

This white paper focuses on the first two sections of the IEEE 1250 standard: general definitions and voltage regulation recommendations for measuring and setting acceptable thresholds...
