NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association)1300 North 17th Street, Suite 900, Rosslyn, VA 22209 www.nema.orgContact: Paul Orr; pau_orr@nema.org New Standard BSR/NEMA CP-80006-202x, Standard for DC Capacitors (new standard)Stakeholders: Capacitor manufacturers, utilities, building engineers, government, and academia. Project Need: Increase in use of DC. Scope: This standard applies to conventional DC capacitors (film foil oil) for HVDC-DC filter applications. This Standard will also be applicable to other applications where the capacitor unit(s) or bank(s) are exposed to a substantial direct voltage such as, for example, neutral bus capacitors.

NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association)1300 North 17th Street, Suite 900, Rosslyn, VA 22209 www.nema.orgContact: Paul Orr; pau_orr@nema.org New Standard BSR/NEMA TP 80002-202x, Standard for Medium Voltage Transformers with Converter/Inverter Configuration and/or Rectifier Transformers to Minimize Line Losses (new standard)Stakeholders: Transformer manufacturers, building engineers, developers and consultants, Government and Academia, Renewable Energy Planners. Project Need: Facilitation of renewable energy projects. Scope: Grid planners are more frequently connecting load centers, such as small towns/cities, with MV DC connections to facilitate greater power flow control and facilitate renewable penetration. The links are generally in the 24-36kV range. This architecture requires transformers to be installed on the AC sides of the links, so use of an inverter and converter is necessary, which risks energy losses through the inversion/conversion. This Standard is intended to provide guidance for those medium voltage transformers with converter/inverter configuration and/or rectifier transformers to minimize line losses.

NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association)1300 North 17th Street, Suite 900, Rosslyn, VA 22209 www.nema.orgContact: Paul Orr; pau_orr@nema.org New Standard BSR/NEMA TP 80003-202x, Standard for Medium Voltage DC Transformers (Eliminating the Need for Power Conversion) (new standard) Stakeholders: Transformer manufacturers, building engineers, developers and consultants, governments and academia, electric utilities. Project Need: Increased prevalence of DC power usage. Scope: Grid planners are more frequently connecting load centers such as small towns/cities with Medium Voltage DC connections to facilitate greater power flow control and facilitate renewable penetration. The links are generally in the 24-36 kV range. As research continues on solid-state transformers, the industry moves closer to eventual widespread use of these devices to safely integrate renewable generation into the grid at proper voltages and frequencies. With power electronics included within the transformer, external power conversion would not be needed. These requirements would cover medium voltage DC transformers (eliminating the need for power conversion).

Project Need: Transformer needs due to increasing DC applications. Scope: Grid planners are more frequently connecting load centers such as small towns/cities with MV DC connections to facilitate greater power flow control and facilitate renewable penetration. The links are generally in the 24-36 k V range. This architecture requires transformers to be installed on the AC sides of the links, so use of an inverter and converter is necessary, which risks energy losses through the inversion/conversion. This standard is for medium voltage solid-state transformers to minimize line losses through power conversion and/or actively regulate voltage and current from renewable generation.

NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association)1300 North 17th Street, Suite 900, Rosslyn, VA 22209 www.nema.orgContact: Paul Orr; pau_orr@nema.org New Standard BSR/NEMA TP 80005-202x, Standard for Nameplate Specification of kVA Ratings at 65 degree C Rise and an 85 degree C Rise in Liquid-Immersed Transformers (new standard)Stakeholders: Transformer manufacturers, electric utilities, building engineers, developers and consultants ,government and acadmia. Project Need: Increased customer loads due to electric vehicle and electric heating. Scope: Projections for increased customer loads (largely due to forecasted growth in electric vehicles and electric heating) will likely require higher voltage/current ratings on transformers. Utilities can approach this challenge in several different ways, one of which is to purchase and install new transformers designed with higher thermal insulations and/or new insulation liquids to achieve higher voltage/current ratings at the same size and weight as their predecessors. These transformers using advanced insulation technologies could operate at higher temperatures(i.e., to accommodate the higher ratings). A dual kVA nameplate based on two different temperature rise parameters would be beneficial in this application

ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc.)180 Technology Parkway, Peachtree Corners, GA 30092 | e: etoto@ashrae.org, w: www.ashrae.orgAddendaBSR/ASHRAE/IES Addendum ag to BSR/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-202x, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (addenda to ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2019)This addendum adds an optional Mechanical System Performance path that allows HVAC system efficiency tradeoffs. It has the potential to be expanded in the future to include service water heating systems in Section 7 and allow heat recovery efficiency to be credited. The intent is to provide an alternative to a completely prescriptive-based approach to 90.1compliance that does not require whole-building energy modeling. To ensure that equivalent energy savings are maintained compared to the current requirements, a new metric is also being introduced for evaluating HVAC system sunder the new performance path: the Total System Performance Ratio (TSPR). This new Mechanical System Performance path and metric is explained through additions to Section 6 as well as a new Appendix J.

UL (Underwriters Laboratories)171 Nepean Street, Suite 400, Ottawa, ON K2P 0B4 Canada | e: laura.werner@ul.org, w: https://ul.org/ New Standard BSR/UL 4402-202x, Standard for Safety for Indoor Air Quality in Buildings and Facilities Utilized for the Cultivation, Production and Processing of Cannabis (new standard)This Standard provides minimum indoor air quality (IAQ) requirements and guidelines for a building or portions of a building utilized for cannabis cultivation, post-harvest processing and as well as ancillary spaces. NOTE: For the purposes of this Standard, ancillary spaces include areas that support the general operations required to run a cannabis facility. Examples include but are not limited to: Corridors, HVAC/Mechanical Rooms, and Electrical Rooms. This Standard recognizes the issues surrounding lead paint and asbestos in the built environment. Due to differing legal restrictions and licensure requirements, these materials are beyond the scope of this standard. It is the responsibility of the building owner and/or operator to assure compliance with all regulations applicable within the jurisdiction. This Standard does not address: fumigation and insecticidal fogging, ozone-generating air-cleaning devices, ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI)exposure from air-cleaning devices, nor exposure limits for hydrofluoroalkane (HFA-134a). This Standard does not address cannabis-related biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs). These BVOCs include thiols as part of their natural biological cycles. The prominent VOCs emitted by cannabis are known as terpenes with main constituents as isoprene, monoterpenes, and sesquiterpenes. These terpenes are odorants with extremely low odor thresholds. At the time of this publication, the STP is not aware of any evidence that suggests health hazards are related to cannabis BVOC emissions at the typically observed concentrations.

NEMA (ASC C137) (National Electrical Manufacturers Association)1300 N 17th Street, Suite 900, Rosslyn, VA 22209 www.nema.org Contact: Michael Erbesfeld; Michael.Erbesfeld@nema.org Revision BSR/C137.1-202X, Zero to Ten Volt (0-10V) Dimming Interface for LED Drivers, Fluorescent Ballasts, and Controls(revision of ANSI/C137.1-2019)Stakeholders: Producers, users, general interest. Project Need: This standard needs to be updated to address a conflict that exists with a revision that was incorporated in the 2020 edition of NFPA 70, the National Electrical Code. Consideration will be given to include calculation guidance for the voltage drop on the 0-10 volt dimming interface as a function of wiring distance. Scope: This Standard specifies the 0-10 volt control interface method and performance requirements for dimmable LED drivers, fluorescent ballasts, and dimming control units where output power is adjustable between minimum/off and maximum via a control input signal. The interface may be from one or more control units to one or more drivers or ballasts. Applications include, but are not limited to, commercial, residential, industrial, roadway and area, and hospitality. Applicable devices include, but are not limited to, dimmable drivers and ballasts that may be internal or external to luminaires, dimming controls, and daylighting controls. This Standard does not specify control by pulse-width modulation (PWM). Project Initiation Notification System (PINS)ANSI Standards Action - May 14, 2021 - Page 10 of 76 pages

 

UL (Underwriters Laboratories)333 Pfingsten Road, Northbrook, IL 60062 https://ul.org/Contact: Elizabeth Northcott; Elizabeth.Northcott@ul.org New Standard BSR/UL 8801-202x, Standard for Safety for PV (Photovoltaic) Luminaire Systems (new standard) Stakeholders: Lighting Equipment and System manufacturers, PV Luminaire Systems manufacturers, users and consumers of lighting and PV luminaires and systems. Project Need: To establish requirements for the safe interoperability of devices that generate, store, and consume electricity to provide illumination independent of the normal utility grid. There are fire risks associated with the heat that may be generated by these systems, if not properly designed or produced with sufficient quality control. There can also be electric shock injury risks if designs exceed the voltage limits proposed by these requirements, and such exceedances do not appear necessary for these systems to achieve their desired functionality. Establishing a standard to reduce and eliminate these risks will promote public trust and confidence, thus aiding acceptance and deployment. Scope: The requirements in this proposed new standard apply to lighting systems that include one or more PV (photovoltaic) modules, storage batteries, one or more luminaires, and controls to manage the energy flow between these devices. They are not interactive with the utility grid and do not supply power to remote equipment. They can be fixed-in-place or portable, but are not handheld devices (i.e., flashlights or lanterns). They are intended to be installed in accordance with the U.S. National Electrical Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70 and in accordance with the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I (CEC), CSA C22.1

However, the dampness and mold problem sometimes also occurs in buildings cooled by direct evaporation into the supply air. At present, Std 62.1 does not address these risks. In light of that concern, the 62.1 committee is considering the most appropriate way for designers to limit humidity in buildings and spaces served by direct evaporative cooling equipment. Limiting the indoor RH rather than the dew point would be a more energy-appropriate strategy. Proposed Addendum e adds a new Section 5.11 for direct evaporatively cooled buildings.

Revision BSR C63.2-202x, Standard for Specifications of Electromagnetic Interference and Field Strength Measuring Instrumentation in the Frequency Range 9 kHz to 40 GHz (revision of ANSI C63.2-2016)

Stakeholders: All users of the ANSI C63.4, C63.10, and C63.26 standards, including test labs, radio manufacturers, electronics manufacturers, test equipment manufacturers, regulators and accreditation bodies.

Project Need: CISPR 16-1-1:2010 is a key reference document for ANSI C63.2. CISPR 16-1-1:2010 has been updated twice since 2010 Ed. 3.2: 2014 reference (Ed. 4: 2015 and Ed.5: 2019). This proposal recommends updating the CISPR16-1-1 reference in ANSI C63.2 to CISPR 16-1-1:2019 (Ed. 5). Also, CISPR 16-1-1:2019 reorganized several sections and added material from ANSI C63.2-2016. This reorganization and the added parameter would need to be accounted for in C63.2-2016 Tables 1 and 2. Members of the EMI test community that reference C63.2 when purchasing equipment will question the reference to an obsolete CISPR document and there is increasing risk of divergence of receiver requirements between CISPR and ANSI.

Scope: C63.2 specifies measurement equipment requirements for ANSI emissions measurement documents

Artificial intelligence (AI) is currently a much talked-about technology and holds much promise. AI is already used in many products and services, e.g., in healthcare, online fraud protection, predictive analytics, recommendation engines, and many other areas. In fact, almost every segment is expected to be impacted by AI. While AI brings many benefits, it also raises concerns, for instance regarding data privacy, unintended bias and ethical and societal concerns of people who use or come into contact with such technologies, or whose personal data may be used by these systems. Created under the auspices of ISO/IEC JTC 1, the information technology arm of ISO and the IEC, subcommittee SC 42, Artificial intelligence, is the only standards body looking at AI holistically.

ISO 26000 - Guidance on Social Responsibility Activity

Comment Deadline: January 29, 2021

ISO standard ISO 26000, Guidance on social responsibility, has been circulated to ISO members for its systematic review to determine whether the standard should be revised, reconfirmed, or withdrawn.

ISO 26000, last confirmed in November 2010, is intended to help organizations effectively assess and address social responsibilities that are relevant and significant to their mission and vision; operations and processes; customers, employees, communities, and other stakeholders; and environmental impact. ISO 26000 provides detailed guidance for organizations that are willing to implement the OECD Guidelines but is not meant for ISO certification.

ANSI, is seeking U.S. Stakeholders’ input on ISO 26000 to help ANSI determine if ANSI should vote revise, reconfirm as is, or withdraw the standard. Anyone wishing to review ISO 26000 can request a copy by contacting ANSI’s ISO Team (isot@ansi.org), with a submission of comments to Steve Cornish (scornish@ansi.org) by close of business on Friday, January 29, 2021.

Stakeholders: Electronics industry including telecom, consumer, medical, and industrial.

Project Need: The purpose of this document is to standardize and clarify the meaning of commonly available and in-use symbols. The correct usage of symbols will eliminate confusion between symbols that indicate an item or material is ESD susceptible and those that indicate an item is designed to afford some degree of ESD protection. This symbol standard is developed in accordance with international graphical guidelines and standards. Scope: This document covers the ESD susceptibility, ESD protective, and ESD common point ground symbols. The application of these ESD symbols on products is at the discretion of the supplier and does not constitute or imply a specific level of product performance.

Addenda

BSR/ASHRAE/ASHE Addendum 170r-202x, Ventilation of Health Care Facilities (addenda to ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 170-2013)

In reviewing Addendum a, it was noticed that the filter requirements listed for nursing homes are not consistent with the informative appendix table for recommended filter efficiencies by space type. Resident rooms are noted as requiring MERV-14 in the informative appendix as “Resident rooms in a skilled nursing area”, however other resident spaces were assigned MERV-8 under the category of “Any room, inpatient or outpatient, where a patient stays less than 6 hours including waiting rooms”. This is incorrect in that (1) residents are not patients and (2) residents frequently spend amounts of time exceeding 6 hours outside of their room in these areas of the facility. This proposed addendum increases filtration in nursing homes to MERV-14. Section 6.4(i) is revised to not include Table 9.1 because in Table 9.1 the only spaces that do not permit room recirculation are 100% exhaust spaces.

Continuous maintenance is defined as follows:

The standard shall be maintained by an accredited standards developer. A documented program for periodic publication of revisions shall be established by the standards developer. Processing of these revisions shall be in accordance with these procedures. The published standard shall include a clear statement of the intent to consider requests for change and information on the submittal of such requests. Procedures shall be established for timely, documented consensus action on each request for change and no portion of the standard shall be excluded from the revision process. In the event that no revisions are issued for a period of four years, action to reaffirm or withdraw the standard shall be taken in accordance with the procedures contained in the ANSI Essential Requirements.

Addenda

BSR/ASHRAE Addendum 62.1c-202x, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality (addenda to ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2019)

The definition for unusual source is unclear in distinguishing whether rarely refers to a source that is intermittent or transient within a space or if it is meant in the sense of commonality as in an object that would not be commonly found within in a space regardless of the duration of its presence. This proposed addendum seeks to bring clarity to what the committee considers as an unusual source. The new definition makes clear that the unusual nature of a source has to do with its relationship to common items and activities within the space. Click here to view these changes in full
