IEEE Standard 1100-1999, Recommended Practice for Powering and Grounding Electronic Equipment

Date: Thursday, June 28th, 2001

Location: SRP Information Services Building (ISB), 1600 N Priest Dr, Tempe, AZ 85281

Speaker: Robert Schuerger, EYP Mission Critical Facilities

Topic: "IEEE Standard 1100-1999, Recommended Practice for Powering and Grounding Electronic Equipment"

The "Emerald Book" is considered by many to be "the Bible of Power Quality." In order to keep up with the changes in technology, the IEEE works to revise the color books on a five year cycle. Meetings of the Working Groups (the people that do the actual revisions) for each color book are held twice a year, at the Industrial & Commercial Power Systems I&CPS) Conference in May and at the Industry Applications Society (IAS) Conference in October.
