The IEEE has published a new standard guide, IEEE 1782-2014. IEEE 1782-2014 applies to “Collecting, Categorizing, and Utilizing Information Related to Electric Power Distribution Interruption Events.” The guide is available for purchase on the IEEE Standards Store website.
“This guide discusses the collection, categorization, and use of information related to electric power distribution interruption events and will be used in the development of industry guidelines. This guide presents a minimal set of data and a consistent categorization structure that, when used in combination with IEEE Std 1366™, will promote consistency in how the industry collects data for the purpose of benchmarking distribution system performance.”
