IEEE Updates Standard
September 21, 2007

The IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.) has updated its widely used Gold Bookâ„¢ standard, also known as IEEE 493â„¢, “Recommended Practice for the Design of Reliable Industrial and Commercial Power Systems”. This 689-page standard was developed to help consulting engineers and plant electrical engineers and technicians plan, design and operate reliable industrial and commercial electric power distribution systems.

The Gold Book standard addresses the cost of plant outages when making design decisions for new systems and the ability to quantify cost-versus-reliability trade-offs. This revision updates the 1997 version to reflect advances in the field and current practices, as well as the standard’s comprehensive equipment reliability database.
