    A Word from the Managing Director

    "High voltage energy standards are necessary in this market, so ISA is bringing together the best minds in the industry to work on this committee," said Ted Schnaare, S&P Board. The committee is organized to be the focal point in the High-Power R&D Electrical Systems Community for documenting criteria, standards, practices, and procedures related to the design, fabrication, and operation of high power electrical systems, and the associated control, monitoring, safety, and protection systems for national and international research programs in accelerators, pulsed power applications, and high power lasers.

    Scope

    High-power electrical systems including power supplies, radio frequency power systems, energy storage, and pulse forming networks, and their associated control, monitoring, data acquisition, safety, and protection systems.

    Purpose

    To develop standards, recommended practices, technical reports and related information documenting design, fabrication, installation, operation, and maintenance of high power electrical systems, and their associated control, monitoring, safety, and protection systems for national and international research programs in accelerators, pulsed power applications, and high power lasers.

    Existing codes and standards do not address practical application of these systems or the safety issues associated with these systems.

    Initial projects include: 1) Standards for controlling hazards in R&D direct current systems and 2) Standards for controlling hazards associated with capacitors and R&D power storage systems.
