Special Committee 1 - Smart Grid

Special Committee 1 - Smart Grid Charter

This special committee is concerned with coordinating the EMC Society activity on providing EMC principles for those organizations and associated documentation and specifications that address the efficient use of the AC power grid including the control of power entering a house or building.  Such control may be from a meter at the point of power entry into these facilities to control incorporated into appliances and other electronic devices in these facilities.  Such controllers may be sources of undesirable RF emissions and at the same time vulnerable to the RF environment which speaks to the need for EMC.  It is expected that the coordination aspect of this special committee will involve several EMCS Technical Committees including

TC 2 EMC Measurements 
TC 3 EM Environments 
TC 4 EMC Design
TC 5 High Power EM
TC 7 Low Frequency EMC 
TC 9 Computational EM
TC10 (Signal Integrity and Power Integrity)
TC12 (EMC for Emerging Wireless Technologies)
Standards Development and Education Committee (SDECcom)


Interested in joining?

If you are an IEEE EMC Society member and would like to join this special committee, please contact one of the committee SC1 officers with your name and IEEE membership number. The committee primarily will communicate electronically and using teleconferencing.  It will also meet face to face as needed and at the annual IEEE EMC Symposium.

Have ideas?

If you are not an IEEE member but have a comment or suggestion, we would like to hear from you. Please contact an appropriate committee officer with your ideas.
