Approval of SC5 Membership:
On behalf of SC5, I move the proposed SC5 membership list for 2013 be approved as submitted, contingent upon (1) any fees due being paid by June 30, 2013 and (2) confirmation of intent to actively participate by those who have missed three or more consecutive meetings.
Subcommittee 5 is responsible for developing and maintaining new and existing standards for immunity testing techniques and associated instrumentation as requested by the Main Committee ANSI ASC C63®.
Approval of SC5 Scope:
On behalf of SC5, I move the proposed SC5 scope be approved as submitted.
C63.9-2008, Immunity of Audio Office Equipment
C63.15-2010, Immunity Measurement of Electrical and Electronic Equipment
C63.16, ESD Test Methodologies
C63.20, Nuclear Power Plant Immunity
C63.24, Generic In-Situ Immunity Evaluation
Status: Due for five year review. Felt to be a useful standard that should be reaffirmed.
Reaffirmation of C63.9-2008:
On behalf of SC5, I move that C63.9-2008 be reaffirmed as an American National Standard.
Status: No progress has been made. EPRI, which was the original driving force for the document, has dropped its C63® membership. Attempts to encourage others from nuclear power plant community to participate have been unsuccessful.
Cancellation of C63.20 Project:
On behalf of SC5, I move that the C63.20 project be dropped and that ANSI be notified to cancel the PINS.
Status: No progress has been made on this project. The WG Chair has indicated he is unable to continue.
Members of a revitalized WG to be chaired by Jerry Ramie have been identified. They will work via web conference to accomplish the original project intent of identifying material in C63.16-1993 that differs from IEC 61000-4-2 and should be preserved.
Anyone wishing to include additional ESD testing guidance in the document should join the WG and provide written proposals. Otherwise, we plan to proceed with a new C63.16 containing just the unique material from the old document.
Status: A draft document was circulated to SC5 prior to the October 2012 meeting. Dave Schaeffer has provided extensive comments and agreed to serve as the new WG Vice Chair. Substantial structural changes will be required to resolve the comments.
Anyone wishing to actively participate in the work to revise the draft (via web conference) should notify WG Chair Stephen Berger.
The WG expects to have a revised draft ready within a few weeks for review and electronic approval by SC5 to go forward to C63® for balloting.
Don Heirman presented information on C63® standards that are applicable to the Smart Grid. He will prepare a draft report listing these standards for inclusion in the Smart Grid Catalog of Standards.
Jerry Ramie presented information on the C12.1 standard for testing electric meters being proposed for ANSI reaffirmation. SC5 formed a task group chaired by Mr. Ramie to assess immunity testing shortcomings in the document and communicate that information to the C12.1 writing group and the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel.
At the request of SC3, SC5 will review the immunity limits table in C63.12 and provide input on possible new immunity tests.
