The IEEE PES Transmission & Distribution Committee has Responsible Subcommittees, which are delegated responsibility for approving the submission of PARs and Sponsor ballots. These Responsible Subcommittees assist the T&D committee in the control and management of its large scope of work involving multiple working groups.

Capacitor Subcommittee

Scope: Treatment of all shunt and series capacitor matters related to economics, technical design, theoretical and experimental performance, installation, application and service operation for use in power circuits of 60 Hertz and below for the purpose of affecting performance or operating characteristics of these circuits.

Distribution Subcommittee

Scope: Treatment, consideration and coordination of the economic and technical factors that influence the analysis, design, construction, operation, planning, standardization of components and environmental compatibility of overhead and underground electric distribution systems.

Engineering in the Safety, Maintenance and Operation of Lines (ESMOL) Subcommittee

Scope: The treatment of all matters related to the engineering in maintenance of lines and associated devices. Research, development, testing, acceptance of various techniques, practices and procedures (involving the physical effects and other considerations) as they relate to safety and maintenance of lines and associated devices. Development of work methods to provide safe work areas while taking into consideration grounding, bonding, induction effects, equipment characteristics and testing techniques.

HVDC & FACTS Subcommittee

Scope: Treatment of technology related to direct current and flexible alternating current transmission systems. Applications of power electronic switching equipment and ancillary components to AC and DC transmission systems. Coordination of these systems at the interface between transmission and generation and the over-all studies of their parameters and performance.

Overhead Lines Subcommittee

Scope: Treatment of all matters of economical and technical design, theoretical and experimental performance, installation, and service operation of transmission and distribution conductors and overhead ground wires, their supporting structures, associated splicing and hardware components, and counterpoise and structure grounding. Design, application, and standards for all types of overhead line insulators including attachments to minimize arc damage and control of the electrostatic fields.

Power Quality Subcommittee

Scope: Treatment of all matters of definitions, monitoring, benchmarking, assessment, indices, and solutions to power quality phenomena in transmission and distribution systems. Treatment of harmonic distortion in transmission and distribution systems including limits, modeling, probabilistic aspects, interharmonics, and waveform distortion. Treatment of voltage quality issues including assessment of voltage fluctuation monitoring and limits and definition of voltage sag indices. Treatment of power quality solutions including custom power equipment applications and evaluation of power system compatibility with end-use equipment.

The T&D Committee has additional committees to help with its management of transmission & distribution standards.

T&D AdCom

The IEEE PES Transmission & Distribution Administrative Committee (IEEE PES T&D AdCom) exercises some or all the responsibilities of the IEEE Transmission & Distribution Committee.

Power Quality Standards Coordinating Subcommittee 22

Coordinates standards and activities related to power quality within IEEE but outside of IEEE PES. Coordinates standards and activities related to power quality with organizations outside IEEE such as the IEC, CIRED, CIGRE, and ANSI. Fulfills role as a Category A Liaison to IEC Subcommittee 77A.

This subcommittee supports all of the activities that previously had been completed by IEEE SA Standards Coordinating Committee 22.
