The standards making process is the backbone of the ICC. There are many
active working and discussion groups in the ICC concerned with a wide range of topics
including power cable standards, submarine cables, fiber optics, cleaning solvents for
electric cables, ampacity tables, soil thermal stability, testing and
diagnostics, magnetic fields and many more. The new realities in the electric
industry have elevated standards to a position of great importance. It can be
shown that standardization leads to cost reduction and higher quality products.
In addition, today's standards are taking on a global importance by breaking
down international barriers to trade. A good example is the North
American Free Trade Agreement, NAFTA. Because of standards and the harmonization
of standards cable now moves both ways across our borders.
- A - Cable Construction
and Design: Covers issues related to materials, construction, design and
manufacturing of insulated cables.
- B - Accessories: Covers issues related
to testing, construction and design of cable terminations and joints.
- C - Cable Systems:
All issues related to installation and operation of cable systems.
- D -
Generating Station and Industrial Cables: Covers issues related to testing, assembly and operation
and construction of cable systems not normally employed on transmission and distribution
systems. This includes station cables, control cables, fiber optic cables, etc.
- E - Administrative:
Covers all issues related to the effective, efficient operation of the ICC and for the
development and presentation of special ICC related activities.
- F -
Field Testing and Diagnostics: Considers all issues related to testing and diagnostics of
cables and cable systems.
- G - Transnational The mission of the
Transnational Subcommittee is to involve the international scientific
community in the Insulated Conductors Committee of the IEEE Power
Engineering Society and to enhance the exchange of technical information
ICC strive to continually change to meet the challenges of the future. The
structure of ICC was modified during 1998.
