Posted in Acceptance testing by testing in London on April 27, 2011

IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) is developing technical standards to assure an improvement in the performance of fibre optic elements in teh Smart Grid.

The “Standard for Testing and Performance of Hardware for Optical Groundwire (OPGW) ” covers the procedures & processes for construction and performance of hardware used with OPGW cables. It also includes the  testing requirements and the acceptance criteria to be used in acceptance testing hardware.

The “Standard for Testing and Performance of Hardware for All-Dielectric Self-Supporting (ADSS) Fiber Optic Cable” aims to simplify how product quality assurance and testing are performed to help procurement of ADSS systems.

 Finally “Standard for Qualifying Hardware for Helically-Applied Fiber Optic Cable Systems (WRAP Cable)” covers performance, testing requirements and the acceptance criteria for the acceptance test of WRAP ccable used in the Super Grid.
