Study Committee NO:(5): System Planning, Performance and Energy Efficiency

Scope

  • Responsible for the identification and assessment of the various impacts on the natural environment arising in electric power systems, and the recommendation of appropriate monitoring, management and control measures.
  • Impacts addressed will include greenhouse gases, air and water pollution, lectromagnetic fields, noise, visual, land use and flora and fauna impacts.
  • Major considerations will include: sustainable development vs. economic development; risk assessment and the economics of impact containment; effective communication with the public and regulatory authorities.
  • Tools and measures for quantifying, controlling and mitigating the environmental impact such as life-cycle assessment (LCA), environmental product declarations (EPD), global benchmarking, etc. are included in the scope.
  • Methods and tools for analysis related to power systems in the following fields: Power Quality, Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC, Insulation co-ordination, Lightning and Power System Security Assessment.
  • Monitoring and evaluation of new and existing materials for electro technology, diagnostic techniques and related knowledge rules, emerging test techniques which may be expected to have a significant impact on power systems in the medium to long term.
