IEEE Standard Environmental and Testing Requirements for Communications Networking Devices in Electric Power Substations

Service conditions, electrical ratings, thermal ratings, and environmental testing requirements are defined for communications networking devices to be installed in electric power substations. This standard establishes a common reproducible basis for designing and evaluating communications networking devices for use in this harsh environment.

P1613

Standard for Environmental and Testing Requirements for Devices with Communications Functions used with Electric Power Apparatus

This standard specifies ratings and service conditions, environmental performance and testing requirements for devices with communication functions used with electric power apparatus. Environmental and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) immunity levels and type-tests simulating environments associated with electric apparatus are described. Acceptance criteria for evaluating device functionality are provided. For devices with communication ports, where the device does not perform protection or control functions, testing of the communication functions is covered by IEEE Std 1613. Where the device performs protection or control functions and has communication ports, tests for all communication functions are covered by the IEEE C37.90 family of standards.

IEEE Standard Environmental and Testing Requirements for Communications Networking Devices Installed in Transmission and Distribution Facilities

Environmental testing requirements are defined for communications networking devices to be installed in transmission and distribution facilities. This standard establishes a common reproducible basis for designing and evaluating devices utilizing radio frequency (RF) up to 6 GHz, power line communications, and broadband over power line (BPL) technologies. It also requires immunity to five IEC electromagnetic compatibility standards for which there are no IEEE equivalent standards. This standard is an extension to IEEE Std 1613(tm)-2009 and IEEE Std 1613a(tm)-2011.
