Chairs Report D. J. Fallon PES General Meeting Notes

The PES General Meeting was held in Montreal this summer from June 19-22. The Transformers Committee was represented at PES Administrative meetings by Tom Prevost, Ken Hanus, Jin Sim, and myself. Committee member Derek Foster and participant Robyn Taylor also attended the newly formed Technical Committee Advisory Board (TCAB), a group assembled to provide direct input on Technical Committee views and concerns to PES President John McDonald. Tom Prevost chaired presentations at two Paper Sessions sponsored by the Committee. The schedule for upcoming PES General Meetings is as follows: 2007: June 24-28 in Tampa, Florida. 2008: July 20-24 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 2009: July 26-30 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada (Tentative) PES Conference & Exposition (CE) schedules: Power Systems (PSCE): October 29 November 1, 2006 in Atlanta, Georgia Transmission & Distribution (TDCE): April 20-23, 2008 in Chicago, Illinois Technical Committees are encouraged to make more effective use of the PES monthly newsletter as a means to provide greater exposure for their activities. Submissions will be considered for publication in virtually any area Committees choose (e.g. pictures, meeting summaries, significant projects completed, awards, etc.). The Plenary Session topic was Innovation and Reinvestment in Power Infrastructure and included discussion on Transmission challenges in the next decade and integration of new sources of energy. 1.2 PES Technical Council Activities

The Technical Council met at the PES GM on June 20. Items of note from the meeting follow: 1.2.1 Joint Technical Meeting Sessions When the PES schedule was changed and Winter Power meetings were discontinued, there was no longer a venue that several Technical Committees had used at that meeting for additional WG, SC, or Committee meetings. A solution chosen was for PES to set up a winter venue for 3 days of meetings, allowing Technical Committees to schedule individual meetings as needed. Coordination of schedule with PES as early as possible will help assure that room can be found for requested meetings, and our Committees activity leaders (SC and WG Chairs) are encouraged to consider making use of these venues if they might allow projects to proceed more effectively between our meetings. It may be too late to schedule for this coming winters session (January 8-10, 2007 in Orlando), but future sessions will be scheduled each January. To set up participation in these sessions for our Committee, contact should be made with the PES Technical Council (through our Committee officers) and directly with PES meetings coordinator John Paserba (j.paserba@ieee.org).

1.2.2 Proposal on Revision of PES Standardization Strategy Switchgear Committee Chair Jeff Nelson expressed concern that the present PES Standardization Strategy implies preference to IEC Standards when considering harmonization. He proposes revision of the Strategy to more effectively promote IEEE/PES standards, while continuing to recognize need to harmonize appropriately with IEC and other international standards. Wording of the present Strategy follows: PES Standardization Strategy To achieve the objectives discussed in this article, the following specific strategies have been established. 1. Work toward achieving globally harmonized standards that include essential regional differences. a. For existing IEEE PES standards for which there are similar existing standards, conduct an engineering evaluation of both standards and determine whether or not the IEEE PES standard should be maintained. For those that are to be maintained, harmonize the IEEE PES standard with the corresponding International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard to the extent possible and include essential regional differences as necessary. In addition, work with the technical committees of the IEC under the global relevance concept to have essential regional requirements included in IEC standards as necessary. For those that are not to be maintained, the standard should be withdrawn. b. For existing IEEE PES standards for which there are no similar existing IEC standards, promote the adoption of those standards by IEC under the dual-logo agreement between IEEE and IEC working in conjunction with the Institute of Electrical and Electronic EngineersStandards Association (IEEE-SA). c. For new PES standards projects, focus on areas not currently covered by existing standards elsewhere in the world, including essential regional requirements. Provide leadership in the development of standards for new and emerging technologies. Coordinate identification of specific efforts with the manager, new technical programs, IEEESA. a. For areas of emerging technology within the scope of PES, identify specific areas that could benefit from new industry standards and establish new standards projects to develop them. b. Cooperate with IEEE SCCs that are working on standards that relate to the scope of PES and help to develop those standards. c. Liaise early with the IEC to ensure globalization. Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the PES standardization processes. a. Employ an effective feedback process from standards developers to ensure that continuous improvement ideas are considered. b. Continue to evaluate PESs standards processes to determine how they could be made more efficient. Initiate pilot projects to test the effectiveness of suggested new processes. Publicize successful new processes and facilitate their use in future standards projects. c. Continue to evaluate and implement new tools that can help make better use of participants time, maximize participation, and reduce the cycle time to produce standards. d. Continue to ensure adequate participation by consumers and users of the products that are the subject of the standards , and participation by the product producers, as well as general interest groups such as academia.

A proposed revision was reviewed at the meeting. The Transformers Committee had provided a response to the proposed revision indicating that we agreed with a need for revision to more effectively promote IEEE/PES standards in the harmonization process, but that we felt further modification was needed before we could approve the proposed revision. That was the direction of the additional discussion on this issue at the meeting. The Switchgear Committee will take comments and provide another proposed revision for voting within Technical Council. When that next revision is provided it will be distributed to our Administrative SC for review. 1.2.3 Technical Council O&P Manual Update Excerpting from the Technical Council Meeting Minutes (with additions in parentheses): Additional changes to the (Technical Council) O&P Manual were discussed. These changes fell under the following areas: To respond to AudComs review of the June 2004 Manual To reflect recent changes in the model P(olicies) & P(rocedures) for standards-sponsoring groups To match actual IEEE-SA web-based processes To clarify Technical Council officer appointments and the requirements of PES Bylaws To incorporate procedures for: coordinating committee and standing committee membership; the role of standards coordinators; PES policy statements To remove requirements for TCOP approval of subcommittee scope changes The proposed changes, with some additional modifications, were approved unanimously. (An amendment was proposed removing the requirement for Technical Council approval of Technical Committee O&P Manuals, as these would already have been approved by the Technical Council O&P Committee at their Meeting. The amendment was approved and) the revised Manual will be forwarded to the Technical Council officers for final approval. 1.2.4 PDCC PES Policy Statement on Energy and the Environment The PES Policy Development Coordinating Committee (PDCC) has continued its work on development of a PES Policy Statement on Energy and Environment. The most recent draft of this Statement, together with Background also provided by PDCC, follows. This version was submitted to Technical council for ballot: POLICY STATEMENT ON ENERGY & ENVIRONMENT (Prepared by the IEEE-PES Policy Development Coordinating Committee) STATEMENT This policy statement is concerned with the increase in the production, delivery and use of electrical energy, and its effect on the environment. Abundant and economic energy is a key part of modern society. The harnessing of energy, and in particular the use of electrical energy to replace human effort, has led to the high standard of living today in the developed countries. Continued growth in the services that energy can provide will allow for new levels of improved quality of life, particularly in developing countries. Because of these factors, energy is a global and commercial priority. The IEEE Power Engineering Society encourages governments to promote research, development, commercialization, and utilization of energy as parts of comprehensive, national energy strategies based on: Developing economic new sources of supply

Developing the delivery infrastructure to meet changes in demand and supply Improving energy efficiency in the production, delivery, and customer end use chain Having due concern for the environmental impacts of energy developments. While energy use will grow, prudent development must seek methods to minimize the negative effects of energy production, delivery and use, and must aim to reduce global dependence on fossil fuels. No single solution fits all situations. A comprehensive energy policy must consider all of the available options in an appropriate manner. The role of the customer in energy choice and usage should be recognized. The value of diversity of energy resources and of technologies must be recognized, and over-dependence on any single fuel or energy source should be avoided where reasonable. The finite nature of environmental and ecological resources must also be recognized. These resources must be managed wisely for current and future generations. This statement was developed and approved by the Technical Council of the IEEE Power Engineering Society, and represents the considered judgment of a group of IEEE members with expertise in the subject field. IEEE Power Engineering Society is an organizational unit of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. BACKGROUND For the foreseeable future, fossil fuels will make up by far the greatest proportion of the global energy supply. Burning fossil fuels produces emissions to the atmosphere and water bodies that impact the environment and may affect human health. While the evidence connecting the observed rising concentration of carbon dioxide and the apparent increase in global temperatures is regarded by some as not yet conclusive, it is surely prudent to adopt strategies that strive for balance between carbon dioxide production and its consumption. Furthermore, fossil fuel reserves are finite and likely to be significantly depleted sometime during this century. The present trend of increase in fossil fuel usage is therefore unsustainable. There is a window of opportunity for a managed transition to reducing global dependence on fossil fuels by increasing non-fossil energy sources. 1. Decision Criteria Energy decisions should include the evaluation of as many of the life cycle costs and benefits as are reasonably obtainable. These include the fixed and variable costs associated with energy sourcing, conversion, delivery and usage as well as the benefits to the economy, environment, and well being of society. In addition, environmental impacts, to the extent possible and practicable, should be evaluated on a full life cycle basis and added to these costs. Fuel evaluation should include consideration of abundance and the costs of extraction, procurement, movement, waste disposal, and site restoration. Included in these evaluations should be the risks associated with security breaches and system failures. It must be recognized that some alternatives will be more economical and practical in certain geographical areas. It must also be recognized that priorities in developing countries will differ from those in the industrialized world. 2. Energy Options The IEEE Power Engineering Society urges support for programs that encourage the development of the following energy sources. The development should focus on options that are economical, practical and have minimal environmental impact. biomass energy clean coal geothermal energy hydroelectric energy
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Page - 21

nuclear energy oil and natural gas solar energy tidal and wave energy wind energy Environmental impact concerns can be a source of disagreement,, yet there can be no doubt that a prudent policy towards carbon emissions is appropriate. The issue can be addressed in many ways. We urge that in growing our energy systems, consideration be given to:energy efficiency, of both supply and demand, including use of heat and other by-products energy use reduction and demand-shifting based on incentives distributed resources that are closer to the point of energy usage energy storage options, to increase the capability of power systems to absorb the output of intermittent sources, such as wind and solar carbon capture and storage, whereby the carbon of fossil fuels is not emitted to the atmosphere economic tools such as carbon taxes, emission trading, and customer incentives Energy storage options, such as hydro inter-seasonal storage, hydro pumped storage, compressed air, flywheels, superconducting magnets, super capacitors, and batteries, should be considered where appropriate and environmentally acceptable. Such systems can increase the capability of power systems to absorb the output of renewable (and intermittent) sources, such as wind and solar, and improve the economy of power system operations. Under the umbrella of energy storage options, research and development of the hydrogen economy and infrastructure is also to be encouraged, with the caution that hydrogen alternatives should be carefully analyzed to ensure that the net environmental (and economic) benefits are positive. Energy efficiency should be recognized as an effective means of minimizing the needs for new energy sources as well as negative impacts on the environment. Energy efficiency includes supplyside (for example, conversion efficiency, delivery system efficiency and combined heat and power) as well as demand-side end use efficiency improvements. Customer demand response and customer involvement can only be fully achieved through improved information infrastructure, user-friendly appliances, and market-driven tariffs. If customers can be included in the decision-making process of energy consumption, primarily through incentives to reduce or shift usage to a different time period, then these patterns would contribute to conservation and increased efficiency. 3. Power Delivery Systems Power delivery systems are already technically advanced, but should not be overlooked in the development of energy resources. Many of the sources of energy that will contribute to future supply are not located close to the places where the energy is needed, so that the energy must be moved, often in electrical form, over sometimes very large distances. (Hydro and wind power, for example, cannot be moved by pipelines.) An energy transport infrastructure that includes both a power delivery system to connect generation resources with loads and comprehensive monitoring and control systems to manage the power system will generally be needed. 4. Research & Development Increased funding for research and development in both the public and private sectors is needed and strongly recommended. R&D should be focused on accelerating the advancement of technology and environmental solutions for the priority strategies of increasing energy sources, improving delivery performance and improving energy efficiency. This is particularly important for those options that
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Page - 22

have high commercial potential to improve fundamental energy economics and reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Renewable energy technologies still need R&D efforts not only for fundamental research, but increasingly for development and implementation issues. Nuclear energy represents a significant portion of current global energy supply and is one of the most economical energy sources today. In order to improve this source of non-carbon emitting base-load generation, continued research should be committed toward passively safe advanced reactor designs and the long-term management of used nuclear fuel. Fossil fuel reserves is another research area that is vitally important to energy strategy and the planning of a comprehensive and credible assessment of the remaining global reserves that are commercially viable is critical. After a brief review period for the Administrative SC, The Transformers Committee provided a ballot of Approved with Comments to the proposed Policy Statement. The comments were related to suggestion that an Energy Policy statement should include discussion of the reliability impacts of aging infrastructure, and on the need for political decision makers to appropriately consult engineering expertise while forming policy on energy and the environment. An update will be provided when the results of the Technical Council ballot are available. If you have comments or questions related to this proposed PES Policy Statement, please see the Committee Chair. 1.2.5 Transformers Committee Report at TC Meeting The Technical Committees were requested to provide input at the Technical Council meeting on significant issues/activities and on actions taken to increase participation. Documentation of the Transformers Committee discussion at the meeting was forwarded to Technical Council, and is copied here: I - Significant Issues: 1) The Transformers Committee, together with the Chair of the PES Standards Coordinating Committee, has written to the IEEE SA Standards Board asking for a hearing on two items of concern. The Committee has been concerned for some time with these two issues that, to our perception, are delaying some of our documents and requiring additional work by our volunteers. The issues are related to: a) Dual dimensioning in Implementation of the IEEE metrification policy We understand the need, and have been working to implement the IEEE metrification policy, but we also recognize and feel very strongly that safety concerns related to our product standards result in the need for dual dimensioning in these standards. The use of US customary units of measure are permitted as alternate units in the normative portion of the text, but lack of explicit approval of such use in PES standards seems to result in the need for rereview of this item each time a standard document is reviewed. We are requesting the Standards Board for an explicit statement authorizing such dual dimensioning in PES standards. b) The use of long established definitions, terminology and methods of expressing quantities used in IEEE/PES standards and well understood in the power industry - We also feel that the sponsoring technical committees represent the best consensus knowledge for determination of correct use of terminology and methods of expressing quantities. We do not minimize the importance of the review work of SCC14 in this area,
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Page - 23

as most comments received in this regard are helpful in assuring uniformity and accuracy of terminology, but we do ask the Board to recognize the technical committee as the authority in determination of appropriate use of such terminology. We were prepared to discuss the above items at the recent Standards Board Meeting, but for various reasons (the extended duration of the meeting, availability of appropriate personnel to discuss alternate opinions, etc.) that requested discussion was tabled till a later date. Notes of meeting discussion on these issues: (1) Jeff Nelson noted the Switchgear Committees support of our position on these issues. The Transformers Committee notes with appreciation that support, and the similar support offered by other technical committees. (2) Malcolm Thaden, member of the Standards Board, noted that the Board understands the seriousness of these concerns and will address them, and suggested that additional provision of specific wording to clarify our position further would assist in that review. 2) The Transformers Committee is working to resolve a significant number of substantial negative ballot concerns related to Project PC 57.142 (A Guide to Describe the Occurrence and Mitigation of Switching Transients Induced by Transformer and Switching Device Interaction). We are reaching out further to the Switchgear Committee to make sure that we understand and appropriately address the concerns expressed by many Switchgear Committee balloters. We will continue cooperative discussion with Switchgear Committee leadership to find common understanding on how best to proceed with input from representatives of both committees.

The above items are presented as status updates. We will continue to work to resolve concerns in a manner consistent with IEEE/PES policy. II Means Used by the Transformers Committee to Increase Participation: Participation, membership, and attendance at our meetings have grown consistently over the past 10-12 years. Some of the actions taken that we believe contribute to this growth include: Including technical tours at all of our meetings Including technical presentations (Tutorials) on hot topics of interest at all meetings Encouraging Committee membership Added emphasis on awards and recognition Aggressively working to contain costs by establishing guidelines, procedures, standard contracts, etc, for meetings planning Including social events at all meetings, with emphasis on value at moderate price Distributing Transformers Committee Flyer at Conferences and other industry meetings Maintaining a Committee website with open access to information on activities (discretion of Subcommittee and Working Group Chairs is used in determining whether specific documents remain under open or more secure access) Newcomers Orientation is presented at each meeting and posted on the Committee website Inviting students from local IEEE/PES Chapters to attend meetings at no charge Updates since the Technical Council meeting in June on Issues 1 and 2 above will be provided later in this report and at the Committee Meeting in Montreal. 1.3 Transformers Committee Activities

Progress since last meeting in several areas of concern for the Committee, together with notes of Committee interest, follow:

Page - 24

IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

1.3.1 Coordination and Liaison Activities Progress on PC57.142 As noted in Claus 1.2.5 above, the ballot on PC57.142 received a substantial number of negative ballots. Many of the ballot comments were from colleagues in the Switchgear Committee, and reflected concern that greater emphasis should be placed on the phenomenon of transformer midwinding resonance as a result of interaction of all system components, rather than as termed an interaction of transformer and breaker, and that sections related to breakers and switching devices needed enhancement. It had been the goal of the WG, under sponsorship of the Performance Characteristics SC, to incorporate Switchgear Committee input, and as a result of the ballot process significant collaborative effort is now proceeding with participation from both Committees. Significant revisions were made based on ballot review, and recently two conference calls - including one arranged during the Switchgear Committee Meeting - were held to discuss the revisions and continue this joint effort,. The title and content of the document will be revised further to reflect this system interaction emphasis, and review will be made with IEEE to determine appropriate next steps for this document. It has taken some time to reach this level of liaison and cooperation, and we are hopeful that this effort will result in a useful and practical guide for the industry. 1.3.2 IEEE-SA MyProject Hierarchy Issue PAR Applications At our Spring Meeting in Costa Mesa, IEEE Staff discussed with us an issue on how Project Approval Request (PAR) forms were to be completed. The issue was related to the different number of hierarchy levels between what IEEE provides for in the PAR process and the organization of the Transformers Committee. The Committee agreed in Costa Mesa to designating our Subcommittees as the IEEE hierarchy WG during the PAR application process. The Committee officers felt that this would allow and require an appropriate degree of oversight by our Subcommittee Chairs working with the designated WG Chair - during the project development process, and would also require the Subcommittee Chair to take specific action in assigning or designating our actual project WG Chair as the project leader. It was the expectation of the Committee Officers that the actual WG Chair would then follow the project through to completion. Additional implications of this decision apparently requiring SC Chairs to take on additional responsibility that we feel should rest with the WG Chair have resulted in reconsideration of the Costa Mesa decision. IEEE staff will provide an update in Montreal, but the interim solution we will be working with incorporates both the sponsoring SC and the WG name as the IEEE hierarchy WG for the PAR application process. We will discuss specifics at the meeting, and we will also continue to emphasize to IEEE our understanding of the present solution as an interim measure, and our desire for IEEE process to allow incorporation of structural hierarchy levels found in ours and other Committees as a more permanent solution. 1.3.3 Metrification and Terminology Issues (SCC14) Progress has also been made on both these issues (outlined in Clause 1.2.5 above) since our last meeting. Conference calls were set up with representatives of our Committee and Bruce Barrow, Chair of SCC14, resulting in an open and constructive review of issues and concerns. These and subsequent discussions led to action at the September Standards Board meeting approving a revision to stage III Metrification Policy implementation using wording the Transformers Committee finds acceptable. The wording approved will be: Stage III After 15 September 2006: Proposed new standards and revised standards submitted for approval should use metric units exclusively in the normative portions of the standard. Inch-pound data may be included in parentheses after the metric unit if the sponsor believes that the audience for this document would benefit from the inclusion of inch-pound data, based on concerns for safety or clarity. Metric units shall always be the primary unit of measurement. Regarding our concerns for industry accepted terminology, there was general acceptance by the SCC14 Chair on the use of industry related terms, and when a typical listing was provided by Ken
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Page - 25

Hanus for discussion virtually all of these terms were accepted. SCC14 will still maintain responsibility for assuring accuracy in documentation, but recognizes the significance of sponsor Committee knowledge in such areas and the need for open dialogue when there are questions on clarification of specific terms. We do not anticipate issues to the degree some of our WG Chairs had experienced in recent SCC14 reviews, and will monitor the situation as additional approved ballots proceed through NesCom and RevCom review. 1.3.4 TCAB Transformers Committee Input Subsequent to the Technical Committee Advisory Board meeting with PES president John McDonald in June, TCAB members were asked to secure Committee responses to several questions. Comments/ Responses as follows were provided by the Chair to TCAB member Derek Foster as input from the Transformers Committee: 1. Technical Paper handling remains a matter of concern to many Technical Committees. The opportunity to present, discuss, and close the technical papers was a very valuable feature of our meetings, and is sorely missed. There was also a question of whether paper discussions and closures could be provided to be available at the General Meeting and Conferences. We were asked to comment on how many papers within our scope are submitted, and for an opinion on documentation of discussions for proceedings papers Transformers Committee Comment: Within the past year, approximately 114 transformer related papers were submitted for consideration for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery. Review of these papers represents a substantial effort, coordinated by our Committee Editor and supported by reviewers from within our ranks. The number of Proceedings papers submitted for PES General Meetings (GM) and for the T&D Conference & Expo (TDCE) and the Power Systems Conference & Expo (PSCE) are significantly less: 5 papers presented in one session at the 2005 GM; 5 Poster Session papers and 13 Panel Session papers presented in two Panel Sessions at the 2006 (re-scheduled from 2005) TDCE; 10 papers presented in two sessions at the 2006 GM. While there is typically some lively discussion generated by the presentations during the General Meetings and Conference and Exposition paper and panel sessions, we are not certain there would be a significant number of discussion submittals made after the meetings. That is just speculation, however, and we would not learn how much response there would be unless the process for submittal and publication of discussions was set up. If other Technical Committees feel there is a need for such process, we would concur. 2. Poster paper sessions are seen as undesirable, if not downright failures. The authors are not encouraged by the fact that they are relegated to poster sessions, and many of them simply do not show up. Transformers Committee Comment: From our experience we concur that many authors do not consider Poster Sessions as valuable as sessions during which they are able to present and discuss their work with a larger audience. 3. Does the Transformers Committee agree with the statement that perhaps the review process (of Proceedings Papers) is lax? Transformers Committee Comment: We do not consider the review process (for Proceedings Papers) to be lax, rather we consider the review process and the quality of the papers accepted for Proceedings publication to be the natural outcome products of IEEE/PES guidelines for Proceedings Papers. For example, excerpting from the IEEE/PES Authors Kit: Part 8: Reviewer and Editor Guidelines:
Page - 26
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

****************** Reviewer Responsibility The reviewer of a Proceedings paper has the responsibility to determine if the paper will impart practical, usable information of contemporary interest to the industry. The subject need not be unique or unprecedented, though the theme should be in general keeping with the goals of the meeting for which the paper is submitted. (.page limits, schedule requirements) Acceptance or Rejection Proceedings papers are published as part of the Conference Proceedings of the PES General Meeting where the paper is presented. In addition to meeting the criteria outlined above, a Proceedings paper will only be accepted for the meeting if it: is submitted in keeping with the published schedules is submitted in the required formats with the required paperwork addresses the topic in an appropriate manner is of a technical rather than commercial nature is more than simply a restatement of well-known technology is judged to exceed a qualitative criterion of being elementary or trivial in its presentation does not exceed the eight-page limit. ****************** Any author reading the requirements knows that the same degree of rigor need for Transactions Papers is not required. We do not expect that same degree of rigor should be required, as the intent is to provide practical, useful information to the industry on a timely basis, and not necessarily to provide a more scholarly treatise. The schedule for the review process for papers submitted for the General Meetings a tight schedule occurring over the winter holiday season, does also factor into the ability of reviewers to do the best job possible in review. If there is concern that the review process is lax or that the quality of Proceedings Papers is inferior it would appear that a re-definition of requirements for Proceedings Papers making the requirements more stringent may be the place to start. It will be a difficult task to objectively define a level of quality somewhere between the presently defined requirements for Transactions Papers and Proceedings Papers, and we are not certain that presently defined requirements are inadequate for the needs of Proceedings Papers. 4. There is a related desire to bring back the Winter Meeting, perhaps a meeting with its scope restricted to Technical paper presentations and a meeting of as many Technical Committees as possible. Does the Transformers Committee support the proposal for a second general meeting each year, which would be used mainly for the presentation of technical papers? Transformers Committee Comment: Based on the relatively moderate number of transformer related Proceedings Papers being submitted yearly, there would not appear to be a need (from a Transformers Committee perspective) for an additional yearly meeting for paper presentation. There already are two the GM and one Conference & Exposition. In addition, it is becoming more and more difficult for our members and participants to spend significant time away from their places of business and away from their standard business responsibilities. Attending another meeting might be problem for most of our participants.

5. The term of office of members in Technical Council seem too short to get acquainted with the procedures of TC and make useful contributions. One thought would be to have a designated member of the Technical Committees to be a member of the Technical Council. Such a designated member may have a longer tenure (for example as done in the case of the Standards Coordinator in many Technical Committees.) It was suggested that the term of office for the Technical Committee member, in the Technical Council, be extended to six years, with an overlap between the outgoing member and incoming member. Transformers Committee Comment: The Transformers Committee is presently able, at times, to have another officer sitting in at Technical Council meetings as preparation for their moving to this position. We agree there is some merit to the discussion that an extension of the term for members of Technical Council might allow for more opportunity for useful contribution, but we also see value to the circulation of Committee officers through this position of responsibility. If the term of office for Technical Council members were to be extended, we would suggest it initially be for no longer than four years. 6. Should the Technical Committees be re-formed in order to reflect the state of the industry? In particular, the advances in technology have blurred boundaries between subcommittees and working groups of different technical committees. A possible model to consider is the CIGRE model for restructuring. Transformers Committee Comment: We would agree that there is a need for more focused liaison effort with other Technical Committees in areas where there is an overlap of technology, but we are not certain that re-forming or re-structuring of our Technical Committees is the way to achieve that. Perhaps we need a more defined structure for liaison activities - and perhaps even some PES oversight to help Committees realize when liaison is required and to assure sufficient liaison effort is made. The Committee can continue to make use of Derek Fosters participation in the TCAB to bring additional items of concern to the attention of the PES President. 1.3.5 Association Management (AM) System All Committee members and active participants, and all individuals interested in Transformers Committee activities, are reminded that virtually all communications on Committee meetings and activities are handled through the Committee website (http://www.transformerscommittee.org/) and through electronic media. Contact information is maintained through our Association Management (AM) system, and administration of membership and meeting attendance records is facilitated by the AM System. All Subcommittee and Working Group Chairs are encouraged to use the AM system for assigning membership within their groups and for communication with their group members. All Committee members, active participants, and interested individuals are reminded also that you are responsible personally for maintaining the accuracy of your contact information, through the AM system, for Committee activities and communication. Updating your contact information in handwriting on a meeting roster does not result in updating your Committee contact information. Keeping your contact information maintained in the AM system assures that the Chair of any Subcommittee or Working Group you are involved with will be able to communicate with you. Details on enrolling and maintaining your contact information in the AM system can be found on the Committee website. The AM system also allows you to check the Committee record of your membership status in individual Working Groups, Subcommittees, and the Main Committee. This can be done by checking your Personal Profile, and then clicking on Subgroup Details. If the Committee record does not match your record, please review with the appropriate WG or SC Chair.

Chairs Remarks and Announcements at Main Meeting

Comments and announcements from the Chair at the start of the Main Committee Meeting on Thursday October 26 included the following: Since the time of our last meeting we note with sorrow the passing of one of our active members and colleagues from prior years, Bob Frazer. All were asked to honor the memory of all our Committee colleagues who have passed on. We note also that good friend and colleague Ernst Hanique recently contacted the Committee to advise that he has changed employers and responsibilities, and will no longer be attending our meetings. We wish Ernst well in all his future endeavors. Congratulations to Joe Kelly, whose IEEE membership classification will be raised to Life Senior Member, effective January 1, 2007 Thanks and appreciation were provided for the continuing IEEE Staff support at our meetings. Their active and knowledgeable participation in our Monday Standards Luncheon, and their accessibility during our meetings, aids our understanding of IEEE processes and procedures and facilitates our work. Special thanks and appreciation were provided to Thang and Tuyet Hochanh for all their efforts in preparing for this meeting, and to all Thangs colleagues at IREQ and Hydro-Qubec

who assisted him in hosting this meeting. The meeting and arrangements were outstanding, and all enjoyed the joie de vivre, or hearty enjoyment of life, that typifies Montreal. Thanks were also provided to the Technical Tour Hosts IREQ, ECI, Bell Helicopter, ABB, AREVA, EHV-Weidmann; and to the Break Sponsors Enerco, Siemens, ECI, and Opsens. The Committee recognizes the value of such support in providing learning opportunities and also moderating costs for our attendees. We have continued our practice of providing exceptional Tutorial sessions at our meetings. The Committee wishes to thank the Authors and Presenters at this meeting - Oleg Roizman, Valery Davydov, Jim Dukarm, Michel Duval, Lance Lewand, and Donald Lamontagne, and again to acknowledge our appreciation to all prior Tutorial Presenters. Sixteen applicants became new Committee Members at this meeting, in part due to the effort by Distribution Transformer SC past Chair (now Committee Secretary) Ed Smith, and present SC Chair Ken Hanus, to review SC records for suitably qualified applicants. The Chair applauds this effort, and encourages all SC Chairs to perform similar review to urge active participants to apply for membership.. With membership also comes responsibility to actively participate in WG and SC projects. Surveys are used at times to poll WG and SC members during development of document Drafts, with the intent to improve the eventual ballot Draft by flushing out concerns, questions, and problems. In recognition of the effort expended in preparing Drafts for Survey, WG and SC members are strongly encouraged to respond. It does take time, but it will assure that your thoughts are considered in development of the ballot document, and it will facilitate the balloting process. Your WG and SC Chairs will greatly appreciate your assistance in this area, as several have noticed a trend towards minimal response to Surveys. Technical Tours constitute one of the highlights of our meetings, and our tour hosts go to considerable effort and expense on our behalf. Please value that effort and expense, and if you do sign up for a tour even if offered at no cost to the participant honor your commitment to attend. Recent experience included tours with a significant percentage of no-shows, and that can give the impression that we are lacking in professionalism and courtesy. Certainly schedule difficulties or work commitments can arise; in that case please notify the tour host so that their expense will not be wasted, and so perhaps others on a waiting list may be able to attend. Thanks for your consideration in this regard. Two items of new business actually questions - came up at the Administrative SC Meeting, and they will be forwarded to IEEE: What are the IEEE requirements for document retention for WG Projects? What are the requirements for identification and acknowledging sources for figures in IEEE documents? Knowing the source for figures facilitates understanding the appropriateness of their inclusion in future revisions, and allows the standards user to enhance learning. Our SC and WG Chairs perform invaluable service to the Committee in coordinating and guiding activities on the large number of standards document projects we are working on, and that leadership is greatly appreciated. Progress on projects is enhanced when meetings are held and leadership is present for all active projects at our meetings. It is especially important, once meeting scheduled have been finalized, that individual WG meetings be held as planned. Our attendees schedule their time and costs for attendance based on the schedule of expected meetings. Last minute work or personal needs can result in an activity

chair cancelling plans to attend, and so all WG Chairs are urged to appoint a vice chair and/ or secretary to help assure continuity of progress if they are unable to attend. In concluding his remarks, the Chair, speaking on behalf of all the Committee Officers, expressed appreciation to all members and participants in Transformers Committee work for their professionalism, dedication, accomplishments in developing and maintaining IEEE Standards documents, and for their camaraderie and fellowship in the performance of Committee activities. All were encouraged to keep up their great work.

TF on Coordination of IEEE 62 IEEE Guide for Diagnostic Field Testing of Power Apparatus Part 1: Oil Filled Power Transformers, Regulators and Reactors Loren Wagenaar, TF Chair.

(Minutes from the Task Force is attached) Task Force on Coordination of IEEE 62, Guide for Diagnostic Field Testing of Electric Power Apparatus Part I: Oil Filled Power Transformers, Regulators and Reactors Minutes of October 24, 2006 Meeting held in Montreal, Quebec Chair Wagenaar opened the meeting at 9:30 am with introduction of 13 members and 28 guests. In accordance with IEEE policy, the Chair asked if there were any patents related to the work of the task force. There were none. Minutes of the previous meeting, held in Costa Mesa, CA on March 21, 2006 were approved as written. It was agreed at the Costa Mesa meeting that volunteering members would review seven associated guides and standards for the purpose of comparing the content these documents with IEEE 62. They would then point out the overlapping scopes and conflicts to Jin Sim, who volunteered to coordinate these findings. Results were received from most of the individuals assigned and indicate that: 1. There is duplicate information between IEEE 62 and the other documents. 2. There are conflicts in the information given in IEEE 62 and the other documents. This demonstrates the need to state this information in one and only one place. 3. There is at least one case where the present information in IEEE 62 is incorrect. This was brought about because of the advancement of knowledge since IEEE 62 was last revised. These results emphasize the point that there is a need to have this information in one place. No one argued to drop the document altogether, and it was thought that if it were dropped, service people could possibly continue to use the current revision instead of referring to the proper up to date document. No one thought the information should be contained in an untold number of separate documents. The ideal document would contain all information pertaining to what the service people in the field need to maintain a transformer in the field. He typically does not want to pull this info out of his
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Page - 39

laptop, if he has one, from a number of standards. Ideally, this information would not appear in any other document maintained by the Transformers Committee. However, from a more practical aspect, this may not be workable solution in some cases because the expertise resides in the various technical committees. Historically, IEEE 62 has been used by service people to install and maintain transformers. It was stated that hundreds of municipalities use IEEE 62. The question of whether to include information pertaining to installation of new transformers was also discussed at length. The primary argument for inclusion included the fact that the initial tests on a transformer were the baseline tests for future comparisons. The primary argument against inclusion was that guidelines for installation of a new transformer are typically specified by the manufacturer, and acceptance criteria do not belong in any standard unless there is agreement of concerned members regarding the specific standard covering the product being tested. A straw vote was taken among the members present on their preference on the following three options: Option 1 - Should IEEE 62 be dropped as a guide? Option 2 Should IEEE 62 be included in another guide such as C57.140? Option 3 Should IEEE 62 be maintained and where possible, be the only source of the information pertaining to field testing? Options 1 and 2 received absolutely no votes. Support for Option 3 was overwhelmingly unanimous. On the question of whether installation of new transformers should be included in IEEE 62, the vote was 23 for and 1 against. Although the results of the straw vote were clearly in favor of inclusion of new transformers, this issue promises to be a sticky one in future discussions. It was also the opinion of the task force that this document should be under the Standards SC and be considered as a guide for continuous review, in a manner similar to C57.12.00 and C57.12.90. Another question asked was should the document continue to be called IEEE 62, or should it be a C57 number? This question was not addressed since it was not within the scope of the task force to decide. However, it will have to be considered in the future. Chairs note: This issue was later discussed at the Standards SC meeting on Oct. 25 that the revision would have a C57 number, as do all documents revised within the Transformers Committee. A recommendation in accordance with the discussion will be made to the Standards SC. The direction of this task force will be determined by the Standards SC and the AdCom. Chairs note: The recommendations to: 1) Revise IEEE 62 to be, wherever possible, the sole source of information pertaining to field testing, and 2) Consider the document as a guide for continuous revision, were approved by the Standards SC. With the recommendations offered by the task force being accepted by the Standards SC, the work of the task force is considered complete, and it will not meet at the next meeting.

Approved Minutes

7.0 7.1

Report of Technical Subcommittees HVDC Converter Transformers & Smoothing Reactors S.C. (R. F. Dudley) The S.C. met in the Cartier A Meeting Room of the Delta Centre-Ville Hotel in Montreal, P.Q. on Monday, Oct. 23, 2006 from 1:45 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. There were 11 members and 13 guests present. The following are the highlights of the meeting.

7.1.1 Introductions were made. 7.1.2 The minutes of the Costa Mesa meeting were approved. Note: The minutes of the Montreal meeting will not be approved until the meeting in Dallas, Texas. 7.1.3 IEEE patent policy was highlighted and no patents affecting the work of the S.C. were noted. 7.1.4 The Chairman reported on the meeting of the Administrative S.C. on Sunday, Oct. 22, 2006. 7.1.5 The Chairman reported that he had finally received a WORD version of the current edition of IEEE 1277 and after about 1 week of work by his administrative assistant had a version suitable for revision and distribution to S.C. members. 7.1.6 Draft #6 of the revision of IEEE C57.129, prepared and distributed by the Chairman prior to the Montreal meeting of the S.C., was discussed. It was agreed that the revision process for IEEE C57.129 was essentially complete with the exception of the issues discussed as noted below. (i) A presentation on polarity reversal hold time and the impact on the dielectric system of the converter transformer bushings was made by Chris Stankowski. This is a portion of the work being carried out by CIGRE JWG A2/B4-28. The presentation will be distributed with the minutes. Since the work of the CIGRE JWG is not complete the current polarity reversal hold time will be maintained in the revision of IEEE C57.129. It should be noted that a CIGRE WG is also reviewing converter transformer failures and per S.C. members no documented failures to-date appear to be related to polarity reversal. A NOTE re the work of these CIGRE WGs will be included in the revision of IEEE C57.129. Highlights of discussions related to the presentation by Chris Stankowski are as follows. Page - 56

Current PR hold times 90 95 45 vs 360 360 100. The need for increased PR hold time is not clearly evident. Oil conductivity is a factor in resultant dielectric stresses. Lower conductivity oils result in lower dielectric stresses.
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Oil conductivity depends on the type of oil and increases as the oil ages; up to 4 orders of magnitude. The same oil as used in testing should be used in service. The extended PR hold times should only be considered for type test and that current hold times should be for routine test. Normal PR times are very fast; especially under line fault conditions. Oil conductivity is a very important factor re dielectric stress in the insulation system and PR.

As stated previously current PR hold times will be maintained in the current revision of IEEE C57.129. A NOTE will be included in the revision of IEEE C57.129 stressing the importance that oil of the same conductivity as used for test should be used in service. (ii) The issue of inter-changeability or the ability to replace bushings easily on converter transformers was discussed. Bushing dimensions are an issue especially re finding replacement bushings. The issue will not be addressed in the main text. A NOTE will be included in the revision of IEEE C57.129 re bushing replacement; issues that need to be addressed.

The Chairman will produce Draft #7 of the revision of IEEE C57.129 based on the above and editorial/clarification input received based on Draft #6. Draft #7 will be sent to S.C. members and if there are no more issues it will be the draft to be formally balloted by IEEE. If possible a formal ballot of the revision of IEEE C57.129 will take place before the next S.C. meeting in Dallas. 7.1.7 The Chairman will produce Draft #1 of the revision of IEEE 1277 based on discussions at the Costa Mesa meeting of the S.C. Actioned S.C. members are requested to provide their input as soon as possible. The meeting adjourned at 3:00 p.m.

Instrument Transformer Subcommittee Report (J. Smith)

The Subcommittee Report was provided at Thursdays Main Committee meeting by Ross McTaggart 7.2.1 Chairs Remarks & Announcements

The Instrument Transformer Subcommittee met on Tues, Oct 25 at 8:00 AM. 6 members and 11 guests attended. The meeting was chaired by R. McTaggart. A special presentation was made by Donald Fallon summarizing the subjects discussed in the Administrative Subcommittee on Sunday. Most of the attendees had never attended one of these meetings and really appreciated this opportunity. The previous meetings minutes were approved as written and there were no Patent issues. 7.2.2 7.2.2.1 Working Group Reports Working Group on Test Requirements for High Voltage Instruments Transformers Rated 115 kV and above

The WG met on October 24, 2006. Six members and seven guests attended the meeting. The meeting was co-chaired by Mr. P. Riffon and Mr. R. McTaggart. The agenda was approved as written. Minutes of the Costa Mesa meeting were approved as written. The IEEE patent disclosure requirement policy was discussed. None of the members and guests present during the meeting were aware of any patents related to the work of the WG. Vladimir Khalin sent proposals for changes to the actual C57.13.5 in order to try to harmonize it with IEC 60044-1. Among his various proposals, the following subjects were discussed: Capacitance and dielectric dissipation factor measurement. It has been agreed upon that the wording of indent b) of clause 7.2 will be changed from Maximum rated voltage to Rated maximum line-to-ground voltage. This wording will be in line with the IEEE Bushings Standard. In clause 7.1, the maximum limits regarding the dissipation factor of gas insulated instrument transformers have been discussed. This measurement will be probably dropped down in the next revision of IEC 60044-1 while it is still kept in the latest edition of IEC 60137 (bushings standard). Values given in IEEE C57.13.5 are coming from IEC 60137. Manufacturer representatives agreed to look once more with the values stated in the actual document and make comments or proposals for the next meeting. Inter-turn voltage test: IEC requests to test all types of CT secondary windings (metering and relaying) to 4,5 kV peak. IEEE C57.13.5 does specify different voltage levels depending if the CT is intended for metering or relaying. For metering, IEEE C57.13.5 specifies 280
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Page - 58

Volts peak while for relaying the voltage shall be 2,8 times the terminal voltage rating. After discussion, it has been agreed upon that the inter-turn test voltage required for metering CTs will remain to 280 Volts peak while the test voltage for relaying CTs will be increased to 4,5 kV for all relaying CT ratings. For metering CTs, it has been agreed upon that the IEEE inter-turn test voltage is more than enough because the burden normally applied to metering CTs is generally very low and that the magnetic circuit of such CTs will normally saturate during fault conditions and thus, limiting the secondary voltage level

- Endurance chopped wave test: IEC is now proposing a test voltage of 70% of the rated BIL while IEEE C57.13.5 is specifying 80% of the rated BIL. After discussion, the value proposed by IEC was a kind of compromise between the former IEC value of 60% and the IEEE value of 80%. Also, for technical reasons, the test voltage may need to be changed depending of system voltage because the protective margins given by the surge arresters are larger for lower system voltages than for EHV system voltages. Pierre Riffon will make a proposal for the next meeting considering different test voltages for 345 kV, 500 kV and 800 kV systems. Also, the IEC alternative requirement of limiting the number of chopped waves to 100 will be introduced as an alternative test method. The meeting ran out of time and the non covered items on the agenda will be part of the next meeting agenda. The meeting adjourned at 9:25 am on October 24, 2006.

7.2.2.2

WG on C57.13 Revision Tom Nelson

This WG had not met but it the history and status was reviewed as well as part of the last draft. Very little progress has been made in the past couple of years and the consensus was that the WG needs to become more proactive to expedite the revision of this document. Since the WG Chair has missed several meetings it was suggested that a co-chair be appointed. Mr C. Smith expressed interest and will be recommended to the SC Chair. In a discussion of cl 8.1 (Partial Discharge Requirements) it was apparent that the SC felt that this section needed to be revised. Reference documents will be circulated to the WG, including IEEE C57.113 and IEC 60270. It was also noted that Instrument Transformers are often tested in a balanced bridge configuration.

a. Status of Clause 4.7 Impact of green tint on ASTM D1500 color test and interpretation. b. Status of permission from Doble on their reporting of DGA c. Status of Task Force on Section 4.14, Oxidation Inhibitors d. Status of Task Force on Clause 4.15 e. Status of permission from Doble to include their data on Gassing Tendency for Clause 4.17. As required in IEEE SA Standard Boards by-law, Section 6.3.2, the IEEE patent disclosure requirements were discussed and a request was made for disclosure of any patents that may be related to the work of the WG. No new disclosures were forthcoming. The minutes for the Spring 2006 meeting were approved as submitted and recorded on the website. Review of outstanding issues: Question on how to contact the Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) was asked. This is a listing of laboratories, not an entity. OSHA would be able to provide information on these laboratories. A note will be added to the guide indicating this. Status of Clause 4.7 Impact of green tint on ASTM D1500 color test and interpretation was questioned at the Costa Mesa Meeting. It has been confirmed that this does not impact the test results. Status of permission from Doble on their reporting of DGA. - Permission was granted. Clause 4.13 Suggestion was made to add a note that head space monitors may need to be recalibrated or that the solubility coefficient may need to be changed for calculation. Perhaps include a coefficient index in the guide. Comment was made that the differences are small and may not be worth discussing. Under thermal stress Natural Ester fluids produce more gas and under electrical stress produce less gas. Thanks to Doble for allowing us to use their information in the Annex. Status of Task Force on Section 4.14, Oxidation Inhibitors Section was rewritten indicating that oxidation stability can be an issue, particularly with thin films. Added a note to contact the manufacturer regarding detection and maintenance of antioxidants and recommended exposure prevention. ASTM has formed a task force to develop a method that allows people to differentiate the range of oxidation stability in natural esters and the effectiveness of the inhibitors. Clause 5 Added a reference to Table 5 limits for continued use to the recently added Annex B.4: suggested key property values for natural ester fluid field samples to trigger further investigation. . Clause 6 Added Equipment with residual ester fluid should be sealed from continuous air exchange and contaminates to this clause. Table 1 Added back in reference to Clause 4.6, which was inadvertently dropped. Table 5 There is not enough experience to come up with appropriate values, a reference to Annex B.4 was added to note b to provide guidance rather than firm values.
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Page - 62

Clause 9.1 Added For units with pressure gauges, constant periodic readings of zero gauge pressure is a strong indication of a head space leak, was added. Suggestion was made to add or some other problem that should be investigated to the end of the statement Annex B Discussed additions as a result of Doble providing permission to use information in the guide. Question was asked what the Fluids A and B are. Doble will provide an average algorithm to allow only one natural ester fluid column to be shown rather that two shown in Draft 9. Clause B.4 in Annex B Discussed the table values and title. Will need to clear up the title to the Clause and Table. Suggestion was made to have the Power Factor test to be also shown for the test done at 100C rather than just at 25C. The question is what should the value be? The value would be very high and would vary. Doble will check their data base for values at 100C and provide feedback on whether it would make sense to include. A motion was made to make changes agreed on today. A draft will be sent out for straw ballot to the full Subcommittee. Unless there is a significant rejection, we will proceed to ballot what is designated as Draft 10. A request was made to consider an annex or a separate guide for retrofilling mineral oil units with natural esters. The Chair stated that a guide on retrofilling is beyond the scope of the Par for this proposed guide. (This is a matter for the Subcommittee to address) However, a table showing typical key property values vs. various ratios of mixture of natural esters and conventional mineral oil will be considered. A request was made to consider a DGA guide for natural esters, such as C57.104 for mineral oil and C57.xxx for silicone oil. The Chair stated that a guide on DGA is beyond the scope of the Par for this proposed guide. (This is a matter for the Subcommittee to address). The meeting was adjourned at 9:20am.

Tuesday October 24, 2006. The meeting was chaired by T.V. Oommen. There were 2 members and 24 guests. A request for any patent disclosures received no response. The Working Group history for the last eight meetings was briefly reviewed as follows. As a result of the April 2002 Vancouver meeting, T.V. Oommen and Jim Thompson cochaired the first Study Group in Oklahoma City on October 23, 2002. The PAR was approved from December 2002 until December 2006. After the Oklahoma meeting there were seven consecutive Working Group meetings, all at Transformer Committee Meetings. PDF files of the power point presentations for those meetings are presently posted on the Transformer Committee webpage (Go to http://www.transformerscommittee.org and then go to the links Insulating Fluids and C57.106). T.V. then gave the results for PC57.106/D6 recirculation ballot conducted from October 6, 2006 through October 16, 2006 as follows. The ballot received 113 affirmative votes and 6 negative votes with comments including one negative vote with comments on the recirculation ballot (Note on the one re-circulation comment: This comment submitted on the recirculated draft was determined to be a restatement of the previous negative comment and considered un-resolvable), 2 negative votes without comments and 2 abstention votes. The result was a 95% affirmative rate. T.V. reported that based on the efforts made to resolve the negative comments on the initial ballot, and the determination that the single negative ballot comment in the recirculation ballot was a restatement of the initial ballot negative comment and was unresolvable, then in obligation to the majority of the 95 % affirmative votes on the recirculation ballot - the PC57.106/D6 document was submitted to RevCom for approval at the December 2006 meeting.

Welcome and Introduction Patent considerations Approval of Spring 2006 minutes Dave Wallach presentation on DGA results Update on Doble LTC Activities Draft 8 and comments Adjourn

The IEEE Patent disclosure requirements were discussed and a request was made for disclosure of any patents that may be related to the work of the WG. There were no responses to the request for disclosure. Approval of minutes from the Spring 2006 meeting in Costa Mesa, CA was requested. The minutes were approved as written. Presentation by Dave Wallach (attached):

F06-DJWSlides.pdf

Dave provided a lot of data points for a particular model of LTC. We would like to have a discussion on what would be a reasonable approach to determine threshold values. Dave also provided an update on data received from other sources. He has received data from Hartford Steam Boiler, Duke Energy Carolinas, and GE (missing LTC type info, need to follow up with GE). Present count of usable records is 2700. Using data from a McGraw 550 OLTC as an example, Dave calculated six different ratios. Dave provided a summary of results. A copy of Daves presentation is included in these minutes. Fredi commented that the 90th percentile selection may be too low. For thresholds, the gases have to be at least at a certain level to have confidence in the ratios. Should the 90th percentile values be used as the threshold gas levels? Fredi suggested that we possibly need to reverse the process and look at only the problem units and set values based on those units. However, this further lowers the number of usable records. Without adequate data, we cant do more than a purely statistical approach. Jim Dukarm discussed the statistical approach method. You want to be able to put all of your resources towards the problem units. You need to be able to distinguish the lower risk from the higher risk units. This will then allow you to focus resources at the higher risk units. Fredi and Dave will formulate an approach. The concensus was a two table approach. The first test will tell you whether you need to increase the testing interval to look at the
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Page - 65

rate of increase. Also Jim Dukarm will look into providing a Weibull distribution for the data available from Dave for the next meeting. A question was asked as to what constitutes a failure. Fredi indicated we are not talking about mechanical failures, but rather issues such as coking of the contacts, basically a situation or problem that can be detected by means of a DGA. Update on Doble LTC Activities (Lance Lewand): Doble started to accumulated data back in the 1990s and started working on the guide in about 1997. Doble was able to take a manufacturer and apply a model and provides limits to go by. Previous work is based on >50000 data points. They recognized that several models were not covered. Current work is to update information on about 5 new models. As more DGA information is received on new models it will be updated. Before adjourning, Fredi asked if there were any volunteers to help him review Draft 8 and comments on it. Jim Dukarm and Tim Raymond volunteered to help. The meeting was adjourned at 12:15 pm. Fredi Jakob Chair 7.3.4.4 C57.104 IEEE Guide for the Interpretation of Gases Generated in Oil Immersed Transformers Tuesday, October 24, 2006 Montral, Qubec The meeting was called to order by Richard Ladroga at 1:50 pm, Tuesday, October 24, 2006. The Vice-Chair, William Bartley and Secretary, Susan McNelly were also present. There were 22 members, 53 guests, and 8 guests requesting membership. Guests requesting membership were: Claude Beauchemin, Jerry Corkran, John Crouse, Dieter Dohnal, Jim McIver, Paul Mushill, Jerry Murphy, Dan Perco Approval of minutes from the Spring 2006 meeting in Costa Mesa, CA was requested. The minutes were approved as written. Introductions of attendees were made. The IEEE Patent disclosure requirements were discussed and a request was made for disclosure of any patents that may be related to the work of the WG. There were no responses to the request for disclosure. Rick went over the history of the Guide for the benefit of those not present at the Costa Mesa meeting. The PAR for revision was established in 1996, and was extended in 2000, 2002, and 2004. There were some significant negative ballots during the balloting process. Due to the comments that were outstanding, a decision was made in Memphis to withdraw the
Page - 66
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

standard. A decision to withdraw the 1991 Guide was made at the same time because of the disagreement over the values and to stress the importance of moving ahead. Therefore, at this time, there is no approved guide available. A new PAR has been filed to start over with the guide. A proposal was made to make minor changes to the 1991 Guide that would allow it to be put out for use, and then start an immediate new revision to cover the issues that were raised during the recent ballot. C57.104-1991 Proposed changes to get document approved as a temporary measure while a full revision is restarted. Section 4.4 - Evaluation of Transformer condition using individual and TDCG concentrations. Rick recommended that we add or if it has recently experienced a change in dissolved gas levels. to the first paragraph of this clause. Also add or if the gas levels have experienced a recent change to the second paragraph of this clause. In addition, he proposed to change the limits of the C2H2 to a value of 1, adding to Note 1 for Table 1, or that the unit has experienced recent or sudden changes in gas levels, and add a new Note 2. Comment Tom Prevost Referring back to minutes of previous meeting, the values in Table 1 are not what was proposed in the last minutes. The values from the last minutes were as follows: Proposed Acetylene C2H2 limits: Condition 1: 1 ppm Condition 2: 2 - 9 ppm Condition 3: 10 - 35 ppm Condition 4: >35 ppm Comment Fredi Jakob The addition to Note 1, assumes that you have already taken a sample, when this table applies only to the first sample. Tom Prevost and Fredi Jakob put together a presentation on DGA Data (attached below).

This file is indicated for reference purposes only, see SC Chair for the actual file
F06-W-ACTI_DGAda ta.pdf

The data provided in the presentation was from Oct 2002 to Aug 2006 with a sample size of approximately 133,000 samples. Using this data, and looking at Table 1 and concentrating on Acetylene, the table was simplified into 3 conditions. From experience and supported by the data, a value of 1 for Condition 1 seems reasonable. The values for Conditions 2, 3 and 4 proposed at the last meeting are also fairly well supported by the data.

IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Page - 67

Comment Do we know how many of the samples were from actual transformers that had a problem. The response was no. Comment What was the basis for the percentiles chosen? Response One of the goals was to compare to data provided by Brian Sparling at the last meeting. A 2% failure rate lines up with the 90 and 95 percentile values. We need to focus on the Acetylene values, as they were the contention in the last draft not being approved. This would allow us to get a standard out and available and then allow us a more reasonable time to start work on a full revision. Comment Don Fallon The ballot for the standard needs to be packaged with an explanation of what we are trying to do and that an immediate revision effort will then be started. The proposed new Note 2 would need to be revised as well to not indicate a value of 1ppm of acetylene. In view of the comments, a concensus vote indicated that based on the supporting data, the values that were proposed at the last meeting be used. In addition, regarding the changes to the notes, it was the concensus to not revise the notes, only the acetylene values. Rick proposed that we have some Task Forces start working on statistical methods and case studies. The group agreed that case studies would be very useful. Rick also asked for volunteers to work on the framework for the next revision and data for use in the next revision. The meeting was adjourned at 3:05 pm. Richard Ladroga WG Chair William Bartley WG Vice Chair New Business Patrick McShane mentioned that C57.121 IEEE Guide for Acceptance and Maintenance of Less Flammable Hydrocarbon Fluid in Transformers standard is due to die unless action is taken to update Bill Bartley indicated that the Arc Furnace TF, C57.17, Draft Requirements for Arc Furnace Transformers, under the Power Transformer SC is requesting a liaison from the Fluids SC. There is an informative annex in the C57.17 standard on DGA interpretation for which they would like a liaison from the Fluids SC. There was discussion on whether the C57.104 guide should be updated to include specific information for the DGA values for arc furnace transformers rather than have it in the Arc Furnace standard. The general feeling from the SC was that it would be cleaner to keep this within the C57.104 standard, otherwise it will open the door to other types of transformers having DGA interpretation information spread out among various standards and guides. There was discussion regarding the availability of data for arc furnace transformers, could a general note be added, indicating that the numbers may be different for arc furnace transformers than for other types of transformers. Bill Bartley and Rick Ladroga will set up a meeting to discuss with Tom Lundquist the Chair of the Power Transformer SC.

Patrick indicated that in light of the pending ballot of C57.147 Guide for Natural Ester Fluids, the next likely issues that will need to be address will be DGA and retrofill guides for the use of Natural Ester fluids. Rick will look into setting up a Task Force to look into whether these are issues that warrant the creation of a new WG to develop a guide or guides for these topics. Adjournment The Subcommittee adjourned at 12:08 pm. Next Meeting The Insulating Fluids Subcommittee and its Working Groups will next meet in Dallas, Texas during the period of March 11 15, 2007.

Discussion: Draft 4 was posted last week (finally). You can view changes in detail via the track changes option in Word. Comments by Tom Holifield Sec. 5.1

Should we try and write a section for Distribution and for power transformers. Consensus was yes we should. Volunteers were requested. Mike Spurlock volunteered. Clause 6 - Insulation Aging o Moved much of the background material from the Annex into this section. Addresses a lot of the hows and whys. o Some of this material is still overkill, needs to be pruned and merged with the existing material. Volunteers? o Now includes appropriate material for non-thermally upgraded 55C insulation systems (moved from Annex), as well as, for 65C systems. o Volunteers to edit this section? Tom Prevost and Carl Arpino volunteered to edit this section. Clause 7.3 needs some editing to reflect consensus on moisture estimation (or point to some other source). What type of guidance do we want? Suggestions: o Sidestep and not provide guidance at this time as the supportive information is not yet available. o Move back to the Annex if guidance is not to be provided. There is a potential of misapplication but it is a useful tool that would not be good to lose. Vote was requested on whether this should be moved back to the Annex. Concensus was that the information should be moved back to an Annex. It will be kept as a discussion item and TV Oommen will be contacted for discussion. Clause 10 Calculation of Temperatures o We previously decided to move Annex G into body of guide and move Clause 7 to an Annex. Tim changed his mind on this.

This guide needs to be useable or users will revert to old versions. Many users will not have rated bottom oil rise. Therefore, both the Annex G and Clause 7 models are included. The bottom oil model is labeled Calculation of temperatures where rated bottom oil temperature rise is available and the top oil model is labeled Calculation of temperatures where rated bottom oil temperature rise is not available. The user is free to use the old model where appropriate, but is encouraged (strongly) to use the new model when possible.

Comment The two methods will provide quite different values. Could this cause confusion? If a customer specifies a step load profile, if the transformer is designed per the old method it will require less cooling than with the new method. Response: For a new transformer, the manufacturer is required to provide the bottom oil temperature on the test report and this method of calculation should then be used. Need to add a brief paragraph why the new method is strongly recommended for use, but the guide also needs to provide a method for when the bottom oil information is not available. Clause 10 (Thermal models) could still use some editing for flow and clarity. Clause 10 is presently over 20 pages long. Tim requested volunteers to look over the section to try and clarify and make it flow better. Don Platts and Oleg Roizman volunteered to help. Clause 10.1.6.2 Should the section on Losses be kept Recommendation that Rick Marek will review. Clause 10 comments by Tom Holifield o Temperatures predicted by the equations in 10.1 do not account for heating due to solar radiation or cooling due to wind and rain. Will be left out. o Clause 10.4.1 Exponents n for ONAN changed to .7 from .8. Could this change be listed in the Major changes section of page ii with some explanation of the reason for the change? Also, what is Method C should this be Annex D? Typo, will be change to 0.8. Second part referring to Method C is no longer applicable and will be corrected. o Equation 90 Under light loading and a rapidly changing ambient, heat may transfer from the environment to the transformer. For this equation there is an implicit assumption that heat flows from the transformer to the environment. The problem arises if heat flow is reversed. A simple warning of this issue might be best. Another option is an explicit correction as follows: Agreed, add correction to average oil temperature. o Equation 93 It seems like the index of avg oil should be i as below instead of I+1. Top to bottom oil gradient is calculated after and derived from average oil. Therefore use value from current time step, I+1, not i. Clause 11 (Distribution Transformers and Voltage Regulators) Holifield comments. o 11.1.1 General, consider changing the sentence but does not account for such factors as deterioration of gaskets, rusting of tanks, etc. to but does not account for such factors as deterioration of bushings, fuse holders, gaskets, rusting of tanks, etc OK o Clause 11.4, Table 7 Consider adjusting limits of Table 7 to be the same as Table 9 or those of section 12.2. Consensus was that we dont need to duplicate tables if
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Page - 72

they have the same values. Duplicate tables will be removed. Tim requested volunteers to review Clause 11 as this is the meat of the guide and try to flesh them out more. Carl Arpino and Bob Tillman volunteered. Page 1, Annex D The annex needs to include a calculation for the top oil time constant at rated load and its correction or a reference to these equations since they are listed in Annex G. OK Clause 12 (Power Transformers) o Changed temperature limits table to recognize additional factors. Tim requested volunteers to review Clause 12. Carl Arpino volunteered to look over this section. Clause 14 (Operation with Part of Cooling Out of Service) o There has been a suggestion to include equation for loss of fans. Tim asked whether there were any general comments on the progress or direction. Glenn reqested a timeline for getting information back from volunteers. A timeline of the end of January was set.

Working Group On Thermal Evaluation Of Power And Distribution Transformers (C57.100) Roger Wicks

7.4.3.2.1 Introduction and Rosters The working group met on Monday, October 23, 2006 at 11:00 AM with 15 members and 48 guests attending, with one guest requesting membership. This brings the number of members to 51. 7.4.3.2.2 Approval of minutes from March 20, 2006 meeting The minutes of the March 20, 2006 meeting in Costa Mesa were approved as written. 7.4.3.2.3 Patent Disclosure The chairman asked if anyone knew of any patents which could pertain to this project. There were none. 7.4.3.2.4 Discussion of DuPont-Weidmann test of power transformer model. The chairman gave a presentation to the working group of the dual temperature aging model. He gave a brief background of the model and then proceeded to present some of the results of testing to date. A copy of the presentation will be posted on the IEEE PES transformers

committee website. Some specific topics were presented with the data that has been collected so far. These include: Comparison of Aging Curves to historical curves (Taken from C57.91-1981 and C57.921981) Comparison of dual temperature model test results to sealed tube test results Comparison of DP Life Curves to 50% Tensile Retention Life Curves Comparison of Upgraded to Non-Upgraded Paper Oil Quality vs Life Work in Progress/Future Work o Future work includes investigating the effect of moisture and oxygen 7.4.3.2.5 Following the presentation the chair opened the floor for discussion and comments: Jin Sim commented that moisture should be measured in the insulation system throughout the test period. Hasse Nordman commented that the big question to be answered by this group is what parameters should be included in the formulas in the loading guide. Hasse also suggested that it would be of interest to start a test with 3% moisture and then measure the effects as well as the moisture profile during the test. TV Oommen commented that there have been many aging studies done over the years. He added that this is a good test and that it should be standardized. Patrick McShane commented that to obtain the proper starting moisture content in the insulation it is a trial and error approach. Patrick has sent the chair the process that Cooper used in some of their aging studies. He added that they were able to get a standard deviation of 0.14% on moisture levels of 0.5% with the method they used. The chair requested comments from the group in regards to what parameters we should consider in order to be able to evaluate all potential insulation systems. Don Platts commented that we need to establish a benchmark of the currently accepted insulation system for 65 C rise transformers, that is, cellulose in mineral oil. This would set a baseline from which to reference future insulation systems. He stated that the focus of this working group should be to establish this baseline. Tim Raymond commented that the working group needs to add wording to the guide that the critical life parameters need to be based on the application of the insulation involved. For example, compressibility of spacer material. 7.4.3.2.6 The chair asked for volunteers to review other sections of the present C57.100.

7.4.3.4 Working Group for Temperature Rise Test Procedures Section 11 of C57.12.90 - Paulette Payne The Working group met October 24, 2006 at 8:00 AM in the St. Laurent room of the Delta CentreVille Montreal hotel. There were 13 members and 33 guests present. Members were provided the opportunity to identify or disclose any patents believed to be essential for the use of clause 11.0; no patents were identified or disclosed. Minutes from last meeting in Costa Mesa, CA were approved as written. The first topic discussed was a proposal by Mr. Subash Tuli regarding top oil temperature rise correction based on equation 29 of section 11.4.2, but applied to oil stabilizations done while maintaining constant current instead of constant losses. C57.119 guide for temperature rise beyond nameplate rating allows oil stabilization at constant current. From the audience some testers use constant current while others use constant losses. When using constant current a correction factor is being proposed. It was stated that the use of constant current is necessary specially for windings designed for overload which will not operate near the 65+20 C standard temperature, then the reported losses will be higher than the losses seeing during operation at rated load. Other point that was discussed is the influence of ambient temperature for a constant current test, the 0C ambient stabilization losses would be lower than those at 40C. The wording of the existing standard says circulate sufficient current to produce total losses for oil stabilization. Some interpret this as should use constant current, others think losses should be constant. The two methods can produce different results. More discussion will be required on this subject. Next topic in the agenda was a presentation by Mr. Jerry Corkran. He presented results from several winding temperature rise tests for the same transformer for: - the winding that is measured first, primary or secondary - holding one hour rated current between primary and secondary shutdowns - re-stabilizing at rated current between shutdowns - re-stabilizing at rated losses between measurements As a conclusion the test results data shows that, for this transformer, the one hour constant period between windings shutdowns is within +/-1C variation compared to stabilizing the oil methods, and that stabilizing the oil does not add any accuracy to the test results. All three phases temperature rises were measured for primary and secondary, and the variation was low within 1C.

On the next topic, Mr. Bob Ganser proposal for a standard cooling curve format of at least one measurement be made on all windings within 4 minutes of shutdown and that a minimum of 4 be made on all windings as B phase may not necessarily give the highest temperature rise raised questions regarding the 4 minutes time period to get resistances from all windings. And it was not clear if he was referring to windings or phases. Since he was not at the meeting, further clarification will be required from him. As the last item, a proposal by Mr. Marcel Fortin was read where he asks to make mandatory the back-to-back temperature stabilization method for transformers rated 1500 kVA 3 phase, 500 kVA 1 phase and lower. In general there was no support from the audience to this proposal, it was recognized

that this method could give different test results compared to the short circuit method. The topic will be discussed in the future. Not having new business, the meeting was adjourned at 9:12 AM. Vice chair Juan Castellanos

7.4.3.5 Task Force: on Moisture Estimation in Transformer Insulation Jin Sim TF Moisture Estimation did not meet. Chairman Jin Sim reported that the members of the TF continue to evaluate available information on the subject. However, the TF did not find any technology that is suitable for estimating the moisture content of the insulation material near the hot-spot temperature of a transformer within a reasonable accuracy. TF will continue to search for existing technology to do this for one more year. By the Fall 2007 meeting, it will determine if we should continue to write the TF Report or not. 7.4.4 Old Business:

There was no old business.

7.4.5

New Business:

Joe Foldi presented two items for discussion, the calibration of winding temperature indicators (WTIs) and the tested hotspot rise.

The WTI is calibrated for the top rating on transformers. This has lead to problems with ONAN/ONAF/OFAF units. When the unit is running at ONAF, the WTI is under-calibrated. The tested hotspot rise does not represent the actual maximum winding temperature rise when tested in accordance with IEEE 1538.

The discussion included the following:


The first stage of cooling is typically set to operate at 75 degrees C. This temperature is too low to cause damage to the insulation. There are WTIs that allow 3 different stages of calibration. Using a WTI of this type would avoid an under-calibrated WTI. One manufacturer has found that maximum aging typically occurs when only half the cooling is running. It was suggested that the cooling be controlled by the WTI and top oil temperature in parallel. This parallel system provides a check and balance in case of a mis-calibrated or undercalibrated WTI. The different oil and winding temperature time constants can have a significant impact. The addition of a step load can cause the winding to heat up quickly while the top oil temperature is well within limits. The winding top oil temperature is much higher than the top oil temperature in the main tank. While fiber optic probes can provide the duct oil temperature, a small difference in the location of the probe has a significant impact on the temperature measured. It is not practical to
Page - 76
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

measure the temperature of the duct oil. It was suggested we create a Task Force to examine this issue. One way to deal with the under-calibrated WTI is to run the oil pumps all the time. CIGRE is examining the issue of the K values. Their goal is to produce a technical report. It was stated that there is a reason not to run the pumps all the time.

At this point, we ran out of time to continue the discussion. The Chair indicated that there were additional topics for discussion. He asked that anyone who had additional topics for discussion should send them to him in the next few weeks. He would send out a survey with these items.

Working Groups and Task Force Reports PCS WG for Continuous Revision to C57.12.90 Mark Perkins, Chairman; Rowland James, Secretary There were 66 persons in attendance, 30 members and 36 guests. After introductions, the chairman asked if there were any patent issues relating to this standard. Being none, this discussion was closed. The minutes from the last meeting were then reviewed and approved as written. Task Force Reports 1. Marcel Fortins report on Short-circuit test revision was not given at the meeting. 2. Gerry Rosselli reported on the progress of the section on measuring Zero Sequence Impedance of multi-winding transformers. He reported that a survey was

IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

conducted of the PCS subcommittee on draft 2b. There were sixteen responses, nine approved with no comments, six approved with comments, and one disapproved. In his response to the survey, Bipin Patel provided a suggested re-write of the Draft 2b that simplified the presentation. The task force chair preferred this simplified version and recommended that this be accepted. The group voted to accept this version. Subhash Tuli suggested changing the term E in Figure 24 to Eav so as not to confuse the term with E used in the previous equation. His proposal was accepted. The group also discussed what measurement would be reported, and it was agreed to report the test results on each individual phase along with the average. Finally, Ramsis suggested surveying the Subcommittee one final time with a revised draft incorporating these changes. This survey is to be completed immediately after the meeting. 3. Mark Perkins reported that the task force on resistance measurements (section 5 of C57.12.90) sent a survey with the proposed changes to the Performance Characteristics Subcommittee and the working group. The survey results were 11 approved, 4 approved with comments, and one negative by Marcel Fortin. The Chair then reviewed the final draft of revisions to section 5 and discussed the changes from the negative and comments that were implemented into the latest draft. Subhash Tuli requested that we specify a current that could be applied during the 3-hour stabilization time in clause 5.1.2 a), for example doing an excitation test. The group decided to say that the windings should have no significant current for 3 hours and that what constituted significant current could be left to the discretion of test personnel. The group then agreed on a vote of 38 to 2 that this final draft of revisions to section 5 should be sent to the standards committee for inclusion in the next draft of C57.12.90. 7.5.4.2 PCS WG for Continuous Revision to C57.12.00 - Steve Snyder, Chairman; Dennis Marlow, Secretary The Working Group met on Monday, October 23 at 1:45 PM. There were 22 members and 37 guests present, with the following 2 people requesting membership: Joe Foldi Consultant Devki Sharma Consultant / Entergy

The addition of the 2 new members brings the Working Group membership to 69. Following introductions, the minutes of the March 20, 2006 Costa Mesa meeting were approved as submitted. Working group members were then asked about any applicable patents pertaining to our work. No patents were disclosed by anyone. The chairman reported that C57.12.00/D3 has been successfully balloted and is ready for publication. Old Business: WG Item 70 clause 6.5.1: Tank Pressure Requirements: The request was to change the language in this section and delete the reference to the ASME Boiler Code. This proposal was discussed at the last meeting and there was not much support in the WG to make a change. The chairman has contacted the balloter and discussed the matter further with him, and he does not object to the position of the WG. No changes will be made to this section.

IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Page - 79

WG Item 79 Clause 5.7.1: Polarity of Single-Phase Transformers: The balloter questioned whether the 200 kVA limit was in error, since this is not a standard rating. The chairman requested a survey of the Distribution Transformers committee to obtain their input, and the feedback indicated the standard has been this way since at least 1968 and there is no interest in changing it now. The issue has been discussed with the balloter and he has no objections to the findings of the WG. No changes will be made to this section. During this discussion, a question about whether the polarity requirements apply to tertiary windings was raised by Don Platts. He made a suggestion about adding tertiary windings to the standard, and will send a proposed clarification to be discussed in a future meeting. New Business: The chairman introduced a new C57.12.00 Table 21 (Routine, design, and other tests for liquid-immersed transformers) that incorporates 8 changes already agreed to by this WG dating back to April 2002. The most obvious change is the addition of another set of columns specifically for Class II Power Transformers, with the intent of clarifying the test requirements for all transformers while reducing the number of table notes. The most significant change in the test requirements is to make load loss testing a routine test for distribution transformers. Much of the meeting time was devoted to carefully looking through each test and determining if the requirements for each category were correct. Several additions and revisions were identified, and it was suggested that perhaps the table would be better if restructured strictly along the lines of Distribution, Class I Power, and Class II Power. The chairman agreed to do this, and will send the new table to the WG members for their review and feedback prior to the next meeting.

WG on Switching Transients Induced by Transformer / Breaker Interaction, PC57.142,WG - Robert Degeneff, Chairman; Peter Balma, Secretary
The Working Group on Switching Transients Induced by Transformer/Breaker Interaction was called to order at 8:05 AM on October 24, 2006. There were 49 attendees, 23 members, 2 requesting membership, and 24 guests. The Minutes from the March 21, 2006 meeting in Costa Mesa, California were approved, and copies of the minutes, minutes of two conference calls with the Switchgear Committee, and Draft 2.0 of the guide were distributed.

1) IEEE patent policy was reviewed and the group was asked if there were any disclosures. There were none.
2) Next, Bob acknowledged the contributions of several members of the working group, Phil Hopkinson & Scott Choinski for chairing the last meeting; Pierre Riffon for rewriting draft 1.7; and Donald Fallon, Ramsis Girgis, and Peter Balma for their assistance with several conference calls with the Switchgear Committee. 3) A brief history of the working group was reviewed, as listed below: a) Original topic was considered in 1996 b) Working Group was formed in 1997 c) Task force agreed to write Guide in 1997 d) PAR written and C57.142 assigned in 2001 e) Asked for assistance of Switchgear Committee, as they had formed separate WG f) Joint tutorial presented in Raleigh, NC - 3/18/03 by Tobin/Hopkinson/ Degeneff g) PAR extension requested and approved h) Draft circulated in 2004 asked for input/guidance from subcommittee i) Ballot held August 2005 4) Results of the ballot, open from 8/9/05 to 9/9/05, were reviewed and are as follows: a) 145 eligible members in ballot pool b) 115 votes received (79% returned) c) 85 affirmative votes d) 22 negative votes with comments e) 2 negative votes without comment f) 6 abstentions g) 107 countable votes h) 85/107=79% affirmative 5) Two joint conference calls were made with the Switchgear Committee, and minutes from those calls were distributed at this meeting. Bob Degeneff reviewed highlights from both calls, which are briefly summarized in the following: a) In the first call, the following items were discussed: i) Pierre Riffons, et. al., major revisions to the document which is now draft 2.0. ii) Guide should contain a list of steps that a user could go through in investigating an operational issue iii) Need to provide guidance on how to recognize potential for problem in either a new installation or in an application where failure is thought to have been caused by this situation
Page - 82
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

iv) The need to change the title of the guide to A Guide to Describe the Occurrence and Mitigation of Switching Transients Induced by Transformer, Switching Device, and System Interaction v) Additional information on current chopping is needed (Kirk Smith to provide) vi) Several references to C37, IEEE 1313, and IEC-71 are needed (Bill Bergman agreed to supply) vii) The formation of a joint task force, to be led by Pierre Riffon with members from both committees, is to be formed. b) The second conference call considered seven key technical concerns for discussion: (i) Current Chopping (ii) Multiple Re-ignitions vs. Restrikes (iii) Transformers are considered as pure inductance, losses need to be added (iv) Description of winding resonance (v) Practical guidance to situation (vi) Snubber design (vii) Expand explanation on aspects of system design that could contribute to this problem Electronic Loads Backfeed energization Feeder Cable Length, 6) Marcel Fortin indicated that the Switchgear Committee in their main meeting voted to work on this document as a joint document with the Transformer Committee. 7) Don Fallon indicated we initially tried to include input from others, but really did not get constructive comments until the ballot. However, now that input is coming in collaboration with the Switchgear Committee. The two conference calls held, show the willingness of the members from both the Switchgear and Transformer Committees to work together to prepare the next version of this guide. Don did not foresee any reason why such a collaborative effort could not take place. 8) Angela Ortiz of IEEE indicated that continued teamwork with the Switchgear Committee was the best possible way to proceed, and that the mechanics of doing so would not be a problem. 9) The question of how we can better publicize this issue was raised. Bob indicated that CIGRE had published a document approximately a year and a half ago, and that was one source of this information. The group had no other suggestions and concluded that completing this guide was probably the best way to publicize this issue. 10) The issue of what steps can an engineer take to avoid this problem in advance was raised once again. And again, the conclusion is that the installation of a snubber is the most cost efficient way to mitigate this problem. Unfortunately, the studies to confirm the potential for an interaction problem are far more expensive. An example of this situation was raised relative to furnace transformers 30 years ago. Essentially, the interaction problem existed then, but there were very limited tools to
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Page - 83

even study the issue. The solution was to add snubbers, which has been done since that point in time, and the problem has been since. 11) Bob Degeneff proposed the following next steps for this work effort: a) To revise the title of the guide to A Guide to Describe the Occurrence and Mitigation of Switching Transients Induced by Transformer, Switching Device, and System Interaction. This will require a new PAR. b) To revise the scope to reflect the title change and add clarifications, but not to increase the overall scope of the document. c) To form a joint task force with the Switchgear committee to revise this document and be ready to ballot in 2007 12) Peter Balma made a motion that these next steps be accepted by the group. The motion was seconded, and a vote of working group was unanimous, no opposing votes were cast. 13) Jim McBride made a brief presentation to the group describing his work efforts on developing on-line FRA measurements. As a result of his research, Jim has made some high quality measurements of system transients, and wanted to share these with the group because of its effort to understand system transients and their impact with transformers. His efforts indicate that the frequency content of these transients is quite high, and that a 40 kV rise in voltage with a 5 usec rise-time had been seen. Key to these efforts. It should be understood that such measurements can be misleading unless made with equipment specifically capable of reproducing these higher frequencies. 14) There was no new or old business brought before the group.

WG on Revision of C57.21- Standard Requirements, Terminology, and Test Code for Shunt Reactors over 500 KVA Richard Dudley, Chairman
The W.G. met in the Cartier-A Meeting Room of the Delta Centre-Ville Hotel in

Montreal, P.Q. on Oct. 23, 2006 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. There were 12 members and 11 guests present. The following are the highlights. 1. Introductions were made. 2. The minutes of the meeting in Costa Mesa were approved. Note: The minutes of the Montreal meeting will not be formally approved until the W.G. meets in Dallas, Texas. 3. IEEE patent policy was highlighted by the Chairman and no patent issues wee noted that could impact the revision of IEEE C57.21. 4. Draft # 6 of the revision of IEEE C57.21, prepared by the Chairman, was discussed. Revision of the document is largely complete. Discussion was focused on a small number of outstanding issues, most of which were identified and partially discussed via e-mail prior to the meeting. The following are the highlights.
Page - 84
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

(i)

Based on discussions the Chairman had with Jeff Nelson, Chairman of the IEEE Switchgear Committee, Annex B should be acceptable to the IEEE Switchgear Committee. The focus of the informative annex is on transients seen by shunt reactors during switching and is a basis for the elimination of reduced BILs from Table 5. Christoph Ploetner made a presentation on the issue of whether losses should be referred to rated current, as is current practice, or rated voltage. Christophs presentation which was prepared based on his discussions with Bertrand Poulin, are attached to these minutes. The tolerance on impedance and the actual achieved impedance creates the issue. In service, the actual current is determined by the actual achieved impedance. The actual achieved impedance determines the actual in service MVAR of the shunt reactor. Utilities buy MVARs but guaranteed losses are important for commercial reasons; especially in the case of loss evaluations. It was finally the consensus of the W.G. to reduce the tolerance on impedance from 5% to 2.5% and reference losses to rated current as has been the practice in the current version of IEEE C57.21. The hi-pot levels in Table 5 for the applied voltage test were discussed. The hi-pot levels for dry type SRs in the current version of IEEE C57.21 are based on those for insulators. They are higher than those for oil immersed SRs of the same voltage class. One W.G. member pointed out that insulators are components and therefore have higher hi-pot levels. However, insulators as applied to dry type SRs should have hi-pot values based on the application. Therefore, Pierre Riffon proposed that the hi-pot value for oil immersed and dry type SRs should be the same and that the values for oil immersed SRs should be used. Hi-pot values for oil immersed SRs are based on insulation co-ordination practices. Table 5 will be modified accordingly. It was also noted that hi-pot levels for oil immersed & dry type transformers are the same. For shunt reactors, reduced BILs are not utilized due to the frequent switching. For power transformers, LA protection practice is different and therefore there are different BILs for the same voltage class. The recommended impulse level for 550 kV System Voltage should be; lightning 1550 kV, chopped wave 1705, and switching 1290.

The meeting opened on Tuesday at 1:45 PM with 12 members and 12 guests present. Following introductions, the minutes from the March 21, 2006 meeting in Costa Mesa, California were approved as submitted with a correction to the date.

The chairman reviewed the IEEE patent disclosure requirements. No guests or members indicated knowledge of patent activity applicable to the work at this meeting.

With no comments concerning old business, Draft 3 was reviewed. This draft incorporated all the results from the working group review of Draft 2, including revisions to the abstract, key words, and introduction. Additional wording was added to the section concerning transformer heating due to third harmonics. The rigorous test method in Annex C was replaced with a brief mention of testing using electronic power supplies. The proposed section on loading above nameplate rating was removed, since the whole document was related to loading.

Hasse Nordman suggested adding several electromagnetic field figures from IEC 61378-3 to replace the single figure D1. These figures would better demonstrate the effects of harmonics on the field, since Annex D is a tutorial section. He will send information on the specific figures suggested.

The WG members were requested to carefully review the draft, since the next step will be to ballot the document.

7.5.4.7

TF on Semi-Conductor Rectifier Transformers, C57.18.10 Sheldon Kennedy, Chairman The Working Group met on Tuesday, March 21, 2006 at 3:15 PM with 12 members and 6 guests present. Sheldon Kennedy chaired the meeting. The IEEE disclosure statement was read. There were no patents pertaining to this standards work for which any members had awareness. The minutes of the March 21, 2006 meeting in Costa Mesa, California were approved. The Chair announced that the Amendment, C57.18.10a/D1, had been put out for a survey in the working group. Only 6 votes were received to date. They were all positive, but one contained a comment that there was an additional error in the Circuit 50 diagram that should be corrected. It showed three neutrals coming to one side of the interphase transformer and only one coming to the other side of the interphase transformer. There should be two on either side. We are correcting the errors and missing or undefined terms. So it was felt that this should be corrected immediately. Since we dont have enough votes back on the survey yet, the Chair will circulate Draft 2 for survey in the Working Group, with the Circuit 50 correction, immediately following the meeting.

The Chair reminded the Working Group that IEEE had published an Errata in January 2006, correcting some of the problems that occurred when the Word copy was converted to a PDF file. If the working group survey is successful, the Performance Characteristics Subcommittee will be surveyed, if desired by the Subcommittee. If that is successful, Amendment C57.18.10a/D2 will be submitted to Revcom.

7.5.4.8

WG on Neutral Grounding Devices, PC57.32 Steve Schappell, Chairman The working group met at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 24, with 13 in attendance; 5 members and 8 guests. One of the guests requested membership and will be added. The roster was handed out and introductions made. The current status of the document was discussed and it was noted that the PAR expires in December 2006. A two year extension is needed, but the filing date has been missed, so special approval from IEEE will be required. The group began by reviewing Draft 2 of the Standard. Peter Balma agreed to review the definitions in the guide and report back in one month. Richard Dudley agreed to review Equation 1 (current crest) as it does not seem to agree with the C57.16 Standard. While reviewing Table 8 (Limiting Temperature Rises for Current Carrying Parts Neutral Devices) it became apparent that a previous topic of discussion was never resolved. Richard Dudley presented a two page document, and stated that he would look at incorporating some of the information into Table 8. The section on Ground Fault Neutralizers was discussed. Richard Dudley would request input from Klaus Papp. If Klaus is unable to help, Richard will create a new draft. The section on Grounding Transformers was discussed, and Steve Schappell volunteered to create a new draft. The section on Resistors was discussed. Doug McCullough presented a two-page draft, which is much appreciated. The group made comment that seismic tests should be listed as an Other test, and that Design tests do not have to be made at an independent test laboratory. Also, Dielectric Test could be stricken from the test table, as specific dielectric tests are already listed. The section on Capacitors was discussed. Several manufacturers of these devices were provided: GE, ABB, and Cooper. It was agreed that we would request input from these manufacturers on this section.

7.5.4.9

WG on the Guide for the Application and Interpretation of Frequency Response Analysis for Oil Immersed Transformers, PC57.149 Chairman; Charles Sweetser There were 41 persons in attendance, 12 members and 29 guests of which 6 guests requested membership. The first order of business was to show the two slides

regarding patents and inappropriate behavior. The minutes from the last meeting were presented and approved without comment. The Working Group Chair presented a brief report on what had been done in the last six months. It was estimated that the document is over 90% complete. The latest contributions were identified and discussed. Edits to Section 3: Making an FRA Measurement Section 3 consists of 6 connection tables covering single phase, two-winding, threewinding, and auto-transformer configurations. The tables were edited in accordance with IEEE Std C57.12.70-2000 IEEE Standard Terminal Markings and Connections for Distribution and Power Transformers. A reference note to this standard was also added. First Draft Completion of Section 5: Analysis and Interpretation Section 5, considered to be the most difficult, was submitted for the first time. This first attempt is relatively simple and consists of various analysis strategies: Trace Characteristic, Trace Comparison, and Relation to Other Diagnostic Tests. Subjects such as Modeling and Failures Modes still need to be addressed. The rest of the meeting focused on reviewing the work required to finish each section. Section 1: Scope and Application - The 20 definitions in place are too descriptive. These definitions will be reviewed and edited for length and content. George Frimpong volunteered for this task. Section 2: Scope and Application - Complete, editorial work only. Section 3: Making a FRA Measurement - This section dominated the discussions. Richard Breytenbach, Larry Coffeen, Jim McBride, and Mark Perkins expressed concern regarding the terminal marking convention used in Section 3, which presently references IEEE Std C57.12.70-2000 for establishing the test polarity and sequence. They recommended that second or alternate convention be established. This second or alternate convention addresses only delta connected windings. They want the test polarity and sequence H1-H2, H2-H3, and H3-H1 regardless of group type or phase orientation; the same considerations should also be given to X and Y marked delta terminals. The basis of their argument is that it is easier for less knowledgeable field personnel to remember. Richard Breytenbach agreed to provide the alternate connection instructions, including a purpose, description, and terminal connection table. The FRA Working Group will review this contribution at the next meeting. Section 3 offers 4 test types: Open Circuit, Short Circuit, Inter-Winding, and Transfer Voltage. Section 3 will be edited showing the Open Circuit and Short Circuit tests as the minimum recommended tests. The others, Inter-Winding, and Transfer Voltage, will be labeled as additional and investigative. Bob Degeneff recommended we consider discussing test types that can be used for transient system modeling. We will address this subject as more information is collected. Section 4: Test Records - All of the information is present, however it needs better presentation.

Section 5: Analysis and Interpretation The group agreed on the basic components for this section, however, additional figures need to be added.

Section 6: Appendix FRA Theory Alan Darwin made a short presentation regarding modeling. This presentation focused on the modeling work done by Dr. Zhongdong Wang from the University of Manchester. We are hoping to include some of this work in our modeling section. Alan Darwin agreed to review and edit this section for length and content. Some of this work may also be incorporated in Section 5.
Patrick Picher presented a CIGRE Update. Patrick is the CIGRE Working Group Chair for A2.26. The PC57.149 FRA Working Group plans to have an updated draft D3 at next meeting. 7.5.4.10 TF on Core Overexcitation Craig Steigemeier, Chairman The sixth meeting of the Core Over-Excitation Task Force authorized by the Performance Characteristics Subcommittee took place at 3:15 pm on October 23, 2006. This Task Force is charged with the identification of limits for core overexcitation and coming up with suggestions for modification of appropriate standards. There were 64 total attendees, of which 20 were members and 44 were guests. Nineteen (19) of the 64 attendees were first time attendees to this task force meeting. Two (2) attendees requested membership and will be added to the Task Force membership roster. The following agenda for the meeting was reviewed with the attendees: Participant introductions sign attendance roster Patent reminder Approve Minutes of Costa Mesa Meeting Task Force Charter & Scope: Charter Performance Characteristics Subcommittee Scope The impact of excitation overvoltage on the transformer core Review Suggested Modifications to Standards based on discussion at the Costa Mesa meeting Discuss suggested text for Surface Temperature Limit Action item review

At the beginning of the meeting, attendees were reminded of the need to adhere to the IEEE patent policy was stressed and the chair asked for anyone aware of patentable situations to bring it before the group. No one offered the chairman suggestions during or after the meeting of patentable work or identified any inappropriate topics covered during the meeting.

A discussion was opened to review the minutes from the Costa Mesa meeting published on the Committee website. A vote was taken and the Costa Mesa meeting minutes were approved as reported.

The changes to C57.12.00 (IEEE Standard General Requirements for Liquid-Immersed Distribution, Power, and Regulating Transformers), Section 4.1.6 (Operation above rated voltage or below rated frequency) suggested at the Memphis (Fall 2005) meeting and discussed again at the Costa Mesa meeting were reviewed in detail. The following suggestion was made for the re-write of C57.12.00, with the text in blue being the additions to the standard suggested at the Memphis meeting: 4.1.6 Operation above rated voltage or below rated frequency 4.1.6.1 Capability Transformers shall be capable of: a) Operating continuously above rated voltage or below rated frequency, at maximum rated kVA for any tap, without exceeding the limits of observable temperature rise in accordance with 5.11.1 when all of the following conditions prevail: 1) For distribution transformers: 1a) Secondary voltage and volts per hertz do not exceed 105% of rated values. 1b) Load power factor is 80% or higher. 2) For generator step-up transformers, the primary voltage is equal to the highest generator voltage at full load as specified by the user. 3) For system tie transformers, the primary and secondary voltages are equal to the highest levels specified by the user. 4) Frequency is at least 95% of rated value. b) Operating continuously above rated voltage or below rated frequency, on any tap at no load, without exceeding limits of observable temperature rise in accordance with 5.11.1, when neither the voltage nor volts per hertz exceed 110% of rated values. In the case of multiwinding transformers or autotransformers, 4.1.6.1 applies only to the specific loading conditions used as the basis of design. These loading conditions involve simultaneous coordination of kVA input and output, load power factors, and winding voltage combinations [see item j) of 4.3.3]. Differences in loading and voltage regulation for various output windings may prevent simultaneous achievement of 105% voltage on all output terminals. In no case shall the kVA outputs specified for any loading condition require continuous loading of any input winding in excess of its rating. 4.1.6.2 Maximum continuous transformer operating voltage (unchanged) 4.1.6.3 Core hotspot temperature limit To avoid the generation of gasses in the core, the core hot spot temperature should be limited to 130C for the condition of highest core over-excitation, full load, and the highest ambient temperature for transformers filled with mineral oil. It should be noted that the calculation for the hotspot is unique and different from the core surface temperature. The location of the core hotspot is typically in the center, or between cooling ducts, of the upper part of the core. Gas generation in this area is caused by overheating of a thin film of mineral oil.

The following comments were made during general discussions of the suggested text:
Page - 90
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

(Pete Balma) For GSUs, are we specifying that the highest generator voltage at full load is the overexcitation voltage requirement? Craig indicated yes. Additional comments along same line. (Dan Perco) Discussion of core hotspot vs. surface hotspot. Leakage flux could result in core hotspot temperatures on the surface vs. in the center. (Harold Moore) Should discuss capability of core (and adjacent) materials at elevated temperatures. (Ramsis Girgis) Core hot spot limit is related to oil thin film gassing. Other materials would be more related to surface temperatures. (Harold Moore) Spacers made of materials such as pressboard are only good for 95C, and therefore are a valid concern. (Hasse Nordman) Same temperature limits for metallic hot spots adjacent to insulation materials would apply.

The following comments were made during the discussion of the suggested Surface Temperature Limit text: (Tim Raymond) What are we trying to say? If we are trying to put a requirement on the core surface temperature limit, this should be clarified by stating that the 130C core temperature limit applies to internal temperatures and that the core surface temperature should be limited to the maximum allowable temperature for metallic hot spots in contact with solid insulation. Several participants further discussed the 125C surface temperature limit. The origin of the limit and appropriateness were discussed. Harold suggested wording it such that any materials in contact with the core surface must be compatible with the maximum expected temperatures, such as 95C for pressboard. Craig was asked to summarize the comments, noting that the specific surface temperature limits should be removed and text included to reflect the limitation based on the core insulation material. He agreed to come up with suggested text, which follows: Core surface temperatures, including interior cooling ducts, shall be limited by the temperature capability of the insulation materials in contact with the core surface. For non-thermally upgraded pressboard, this limit would be 95C. Craig will communicate the information that has been compiled to date to the appropriate Working Groups that have responsibility of revising standards that are impacted by the suggestions of this task force. A summary of those communication follow:
Performance Characteristics SC (Ramsis Girgis, Chair) WG revising C57.12.00 (Steve Snyder, Chair) Recommend that the wording for 4.1.6.1 be modified and an addition (4.1.6.3) is included that aids in the clarification of overvoltage capability and hotspot limits. The inclusion of a specific temperature should note that the limit applies only to mineral oil insulated transformers. Capacity limits or capabilities should be included on the nameplate that makes the transformer design unique.

IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Page - 91

Insulation Life SC (Don Platts, Chair) WG revising C57.91 (Tim Raymond, chair) Suggest inclusion of core hotspot temperature limit in C57.91. Provide the suggested addition of 4.1.6.3 for consideration, Insulating Fluids SC (Rick Ladroga, Chair) WG revising C57.104 Gas Guide (Rick Ladroga, Chair) Suggest that text should be included to note that moderate core overheating doesnt place the transformer at risk. A guideline for low levels of gas generation with a H2/CH4 ratio in the range of 6-8 should be considered for incorporation into a future revision of C57.104.

If meaningful responses to these communications are received prior to the Dallas meeting next spring, a session will be scheduled to review those comments. It is expected that the individual working groups will need some time to consider the comments, so it is likely that the work of this task force is over until such time as a response to questions or modification suggestions are received.
7.5.4.11 TF on Revisions of S.C. Test Guide C57.133 & PCS 57.12.90 Section 12, Marcel Fortin, Chairman This The Task force met from 11h00 to 12h20. 46 persons attended the meeting; 18 signed to become members of the WG, the other 28 signed as guests and will be on the mailing list. The chairman particularly welcomed the 7 guests from local Utility and manufacturers. The IEEE patent slides were presented. The attendees did not have patent issues to report. Section 12 of C57.12.90: Short-circuit test code A summary of comments from previous ballot have been presented by the chairman. The chairman presented the proposed modifications to the document. The 2 major ones are: Change the preferred method from post-set to pre-set Remove LVI. Those changes have been accepted by the WG. The LVI is replaced by DGA (more details will be needed to explain how to do it and that the gas of concern is acetylene). An informative note will refer to FRA as a recommended tool. Reference will also be made to FRSL (Frequency Response of Stray Losses). The acceptable impedance variation for class IV transformers is reduced from 2 to 1%. The acceptable minimum temperature for doing test will be kept as it is now (top oil > 0C). It was decided to make routine tests compulsory for all transformers.

There were discussions about the need for test procedure and guide. It was proposed to survey north american laboratories on: short-circuit test trend, failure rate at test, diagnostic tool (DGA, FRA, FRSL, ), short circuit method (pre-set vs. post-set) Pierre Riffon raised a question about axial split coils. Course of action Patrick Pich will provide the chair with reference papers on FRSL Marcel Fortin will review the draft to include comments made at the meeting and circulate it for review at the WG level in early 2007. Marcel Fortin and Jacques Ct will perform the survey of North American Laboratories and report for the spring 2007 meeting. Pierre Riffon will provide the chair, in early 2007, a text to cover tests on axial split coils.

PC57.133 Short-circuit test guide Marcel Fortins report on PAR status: The document has to be completely reformatted and the bulk of it (LVI) has to be removed. Some additions may be needed about FRA, DGA, and FRSL. Time did not permit to discuss this topic. Course of action Marcel Fortin will continue reformatting and rewriting this guide and report at the spring 2007 meeting. Spring 2007 meeting 2 consecutives periods will be needed in order to properly cover the test code and the guide.WG has been formed to revise section 12 of C57.12.90 and also the SC Guide C57.133. 7.5.5 Old Business None 7.5.6 7.5.6.1 New Business The question was raised that Coupling Transformers are not covered in C57.12.00. There are some unique features with regard to VAR loading, filters, and low poer factor. It was decided to send this request to the Power Transformers Subcommittee for consideration.

7.6.1.3

WORKING GROUP FOR DEVELOPMENT OF PC57.148, STANDARD FOR CONTROL CABINETS FOR TRANSFORMERS Joe Watson, Chairman

The working group met at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, October 24, 2006, with 25 in attendance. There were 8 members and 17 guests in attendance. Six of the guests requested membership. Rosters were handed out. Joe discussed a conference call that took place the week of October 16th, concerning the drawings that will be a part of the Standard. The intent is to have a set of standard drawings for six types of transformer designs: 1) ONAN Non-LTC, 2) ONAN LTC, 3) Forced Air Non-LTC, 4) Forced Air LTC, 5) Non-LTC with oil pumps, 6) LTC with oil pumps. Joe stated that the intent is to have the Draft ready by the next meeting with all drawings. The drawings will be posted on the IEEE website, available for download. Frank Wolfe presented information from the conference call in more detail. Revisions to the drawings will include removing references to vendor names and transformer manufacturers, showing schematics for the LTC and some other devices as a black box instead of specific details, as well as standardizing of gauges. A meeting was set up for Monday, January 8, 2007 to discuss the drawings once these changes are implemented, which was estimated to be the second week of December. All interested parties were asked to contact Frank. A suggestion was made to send the current draft to the editorial staff for review. Joe stated that the document requires further changes before it will be ready. A motion to adjourn was made, and the meeting was adjourned at 11:27 am.

7.6.2.1.4 WORKING GROUP FOR DEVELOPMENT OF PC57.131, STANDARD REQUIREMENTS FOR TAP CHANGERS - William Henning, Chairman The Working Group on LTC Performance met on Monday, October 23, 2006 with 14 members and 21 guests. The working group chairman asked if anyone had information on patents related to the work of this working group. It was noted that no one present at the meeting expressed knowledge of patents related to our work. Next, the minutes of the previous meeting in Costa Mesa were approved as written. At our previous meeting in Costa Mesa, the WG discussed 24 comments received during a straw vote. Revisions were made to the draft in response to the 24 comments. This resulted in Draft 1.1 of the C57.131 revision, distributed to WG members. At this meeting, the WG discussed the definition and use of the term step voltage as it relates to: 1. Resistance type load tap changers 2. Reactance type load tap changers
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

De-energized tap changers

This discussion was necessary because the scope of C57.131 was modified to include requirements for de-energized tap changers, and the latest draft lists rated step voltage as a required nameplate rating. It was therefore necessary to define just what rated step voltage means for a de-energized tap changer so that its rating can be determined. After some discussion, it was concluded that the term step voltage does not apply to a deenergized tap changer. The term step voltage is defined as the maximum permissible voltage between tap changer terminals for a given value of rated through current. Although it is a maximum voltage, rated step voltage has nothing to do with dielectric withstand. Dielectric withstand is covered by the insulation level rating, which specifies dielectric withstand between adjacent contacts. The term rated step voltage has a meaning similar to the voltage rating of a load break switch: It is the maximum voltage between tap changer terminals (for a given value of through current) at which the tap changer switching contacts can perform the required arc interruptions in order to change taps under load. Since a de-energized tap changer does not switch under load, the term rated step voltage does not apply. This means we need to make the following changes to the draft: 1. The definition entry for step voltage will read, rated step voltage of a load tap changer. 2. A note will be added to the definition that, The term step voltage does not apply to deenergized tap changers. 3. The quantity, Rated step voltage, will be removed from the list of required ratings for deenergized tap changers. It was also pointed out that the IEEE Dictionary (Standard 100) also has a definition of step voltage. That definition refers to the electrical safety issue of the voltage gradient that results from electric currents flowing in the earth, causing a step voltage between the feet of a worker standing on the earth. Change #1 in the above list removes the possible conflict with the IEEE dictionary because it refers specifically to the rated step voltage of a load tap changer. These changes will be made, and the draft number changed to 1.2. This draft will be re-circulated in an informal straw vote among the WG members for comments on this issue. The meeting adjourned at 2:55 pm.

Sections needing assignment The IEEE Patent disclosure requirements were discussed and a request was made for disclosure of any patents that may be related to the work of the WG. There were no responses to the request for disclosure. Approval of minutes from the Spring 2006 Costa Mesa meeting was requested. Greg reviewed the purpose of the guide and thanked those that have already provided information that has been input into the guide to date. Greg mentioned that he has been asked to provided a certificate that the transformer is in good condition on receipt. The certificate is limited to those things that can be readily determined, such as no visible damage, no impacts recorded, pressure maintained, etc.

Comment - this is a joint responsibility between the manufacturer or manufacturers representative and the customer or customers representative. This is often necessary due to progress payments or payment of all but a retainer. Comment - If it is a transportation guide we are providing, then the hazards must be presented. There have been instances where there were no signs of damage, no impacts recorded, etc, but in reality, as further testing progressed, it was discovered that the units were damaged beyond repair. These pitfalls need to be identified. Mark Hammer agreed to help with this section. The installation Guide, C57.93, is presently out for ballot and does provide some overlap to this guide. The plan was to not hold up this document, but that the information would be put into this guide as well and later removed from the Installation Guide on a future revision. Bob Tillman and Marnie Roussell volunteered to help with Clause 4, regarding necessary information to be provided to a contractor. Joe Kelly indicated that there are ASTM standards in regards to nitrogen or dry air filling, D 19332003 type 3 for nitrogen filling and D 3283-1998 for dry air filling that specify the properties of the air or nitrogen in addition to dew point values.

Design Assignment It was determined that we should not try to tell the Manuf how to design the transformer. We may want to have some minimal requirement that the unit needs to be designed for truck or rail shipment regardless of how it is initially shipped. This should be noted on the nameplate Should also make a comment that different locals, countries, and shipping providers take different care of transformer shipments. Add some criteria on bracing. Ron Barker will provide some wording on this.

3) The official ballot opened October 4, 2006, and as of October 23 had 68 responses. An additional 48, or more, responses will be required to validate the ballot. 4) As an item of new business a discussion of the theft of copper from station grounds, transformer neutrals, and fence grounds was held. a) Several pictures demonstrating examples of theft were shared with the group, and key concerns of the issue highlighted were: The system neutral may end up floating and this condition may not be immediately detected. Customers will see voltage fluctuations or low voltage. System protection may not act as intended. Concern for public safety. b) A discussion of measures to deter this type of theft considered the following: Use of Copperweld ground cables Galvanized steel connections for fence grounds Cable identifiers or microdots to identify the companies cable Painting grounds to make them less visible Enhanced fencing with razor wire Installation of real and fake video cameras 24 x 7 guard protection c) A discussion of alternate methods of creating the neutral connection at a transformer tank considered, placing it in the ribs of the transformer; making the neutral connection internal to the transformer, but brought out in a manner to still permit isolation and testing, or to locate it within the ribs of the transformer tank. 5) A request for any other new or old business was made, however none was presented. Therefore the meeting was adjourned at 2:45 PM.

7.6.1.9

TASK FORCE FOR FUNCTIONAL LIFE TESTS OF DE-ENERGIZED TAP CHANGERS Phil Hopkinson, Chairman

The Task Force on Life Tests, De-energized Tap Changers was called to order at 9:30 AM on October 24, 2006. There were 37 attendees, 23 members, and 14 guests with 4 requesting membership. Reviewed the agenda for the meeting, and the IEEE patent policy. The Minutes from the March 21, 2006, meeting in Costa Mesa, California were approved. 1. Mission Develop Functional Life Test and Supporting Technical Paper for De-energized Tap-changers. Reminder that the goal is to develop the test and have a paper that supports the test. Test will ultimately be included in C57.131. Reports from Reinhausen, Central Moloney, Quality Switch/Cooper and others on test results. No new data to report. Reinhausen, Quality Switch and Central Moloney should have data to report for the next meeting. Functional Life Tests A functional life test shall be performed as a Type Test to demonstrate the adequacy of the contact design to achieve long stable thermal life. The test consists of thermal cycling at

accelerated current and temperature, whith daily cool-down cycles. A successful test is completed if contact resistance remains within 25% of the original value and stability is achieved. The test is conducted by passing twice rated current through the contacts for 8 hours per cycle at ambient temperatures of 130C. A total of 30 cycles (days) of the 8-hour on 16 hour off 2XN current are required to complete the functional life test. 2 Criteria of success: 1. Resistance change <25% 2. Stability reached Testing has shown that the proposed test approximates 30 years of aging in a 30-day test. 4. Proposed paper Electrical Contacts for Off-Circuit Tap Changers for Oil Immersed Transformers Revised October 11, 2005 The paper is posted on the IEEE website for this working group (from the Transformer Committee home page, go to the Power Transformers subcommittee, and then the Functional Life Tests for DETCs TF). All are encouraged to review and comment on the paper. Intention is to publish as an industry paper. New Business A question was raised if short circuit currents produce same phenomenon as occurs with steady state current. It does not because short circuit currents produce repulsion forces which may separate the contacts, create arcing, and welding.

WORKING GROUP FOR REVISION OF C57.135, GUIDE FOR THE APPLICATION, SPECIFICATION AND TESTING OF PHASE-SHIFTING TRANSFORMERS Jim McIver, Chairman

The meeting was held on Tuesday Oct. 24th at 11:00 am. After the usual introduction and display of IEEEs Patent policy, the minutes of the previous meeting were approved as written. Due to job changes and work re-assignments, the group is once again without a secretary. The WG Chairman will solicit volunteers to assume responsibilities of secretary, as well as to assist in the revision of Section 4 figures. 8 members, 12 guests were in attendance. WG Chair still must submit PAR & officially initiate the revision process. This will be done immediately after this meeting. Once PAR is submitted, WG will obtain an editable version of the standard from IEEE and begin figure revision. WG has received few comments which request editorial revisions. Focus of the WG remains editorial revisions & clean-up of the original figures o Discussion at the WG meeting focused on guidance provided for functional description of phase shifter applications. This interchange produced some new suggestions for possible additions; these will be documented & sent to chairman for consideration. o TF members will continue to meet electronically to reformat & revise Section 4 figures. The meeting was adjourned at 12:15 PM.

WORKING GROUP FOR REVISION OF C57.12.10, STANDARD REQUIREMENTS FOR LIQUID IMMERSED POWER TRANSFORMERS - Javier Arteaga, Chairman

NO MEETING MINUTES RECEIVED. 7.6.1.12 IEEE STD 638-1992, IEEE STANDARD FOR QUALIFICATION OF CLASS 1E TRANSFORMERS FOR NUCLEAR POWER GENERATING STATIONS REAFFIRMATION Craig Swinderman, Chairman

Attendees: 2 members + 3 guests The meeting began at 1:45 pm. The IEEE patent policy slides were shown. An opportunity was provided for the attendees to identify or disclose patents that may be essential for the use of the standard. No responses were given. Topics discussed: The existing standard IEEE 638 has recently been reaffirmation, but has received some comments during the balloting, including both technical and editorial aspects. As such, this task force was formed to work on determining the necessity and extent of revising the existing 638 standard. The existing document covers transformers rated 601V up to 15,000 V for the high voltage winding, and up to 2,500 kVA self-cooled rating transformers for Class 1E applications. This standard also ties in with the requirements of IEEE 323, which describe requirements for qualification of all types of electrical equipment used for Class 1E applications. Members of the IEEE 323 working group have been contacted, and the latest version of the IEEE 323 standard will be reviewed to make sure the revisions of IEEE 638 are in agreement with IEEE 323. Over the last few months, the task force contacted several people from the Nuclear Power industry to get an opinion for how a widening of the scope of IEEE 638 would be perceived and voted on by that industry. After this investigation and recommendations from the Nuclear Power industry, it was determined that the scope of the IEEE 638 document should be kept to its present limit, as the 1E designation is a very serious requirement in the Nuclear Power industry, and there are several standards that deal directly with class 1E equipment. An additional topic of discussion was the Annex A contained in the existing IEEE 638-1992 document. Annex A is used to demonstrate the thermal ageing of the transformer insulation materials. This annex A is now being compared to the latest version of C57.96-1999 to verify if a revision is needed for the annex. It was noted that the existing annex A does not take into account for the case of non-sinusoidal loads, and no reference to C57.110 is made in the existing document. Members from the C57.96 working group will be contacted to verify the extent that Annex A needs to be revised. A guest at the meeting suggested that it may be a good idea to contact the Nuclear Power Engineering Committee (NPEC) SC-2 or SC-3 to see if a possible joint working group should be established for this revision of IEEE 638. We will follow up on this request and inform the results shortly.

Liquid Filled Secondary Network Transformers (C57.12.40) B. Klaponski, Chairman 1. The WG met on Monday, October 23, 2006 at 09:30 am with 12 members and 6 guests. 2. The chairman reviewed the patent legal issue and asked whether there were any patents or patents pending that would affect the WG or standard. None were identified. 3. The minutes of the March 20, 2006 meeting in Costa Mesa, CA were amended to remove the last sentence of item #4d. The minutes were approved as amended. 4. B. Klaponski gave a brief status update on the standard and process. A. Standard was published on September 15, 2006. B. The PAR for this last update was to correct errors in the document. Since the standard published was only updated to correct editorial errors, it is not really the standard we need. WG will focus on a complete review of the standard during the next review cycle. The WG will focus on technical issues. C. The chairman reiterated the comments made at the March meeting that the procedures for a Working Group to update a standard are overly complicated and too much administrative work is required from the WG. This places a huge burden on the WG chairs. There is a lot of opportunity for improvement in the process. D. Review of new PAR. WG reviewed the new title, scope, and purpose developed at the March meeting. Intent is for this standard to not cover dry type transformers. E. Title: Draft Standard for Network, Three-Phase Transformers, 2500 kVA and Smaller; High Voltage 34 500 GrdY/19 920 and Below; Low Voltage 600 Volts and Below F. Scope: This standard covers certain electrical, dimensional, and mechanical characteristics and takes into consideration certain safety features of threephase, 60-Hz, liquid-immersed, self-cooled, network transformers with a primary grounding switch. These transformers are rated 2500 kVA and smaller with high voltages of 34 500GrdY/19 920 volts and below. These transformers

Page - 106

IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

are generally used for step-down purposes from underground primary cables and supply a secondary network system through network protectors. These transformers are typically installed below ground level. G. Purpose: This standard is intended for use as a basis for establishing the performance, electrical and mechanical interchangeability, safety of the equipment covered, and to assist in the proper selection of such equipment. H. A new PAR submittal will be made prior to next meeting. The title, scope and purpose will be reviewed by chairman prior to submitting a new PAR. I. The WG began work on update of standard (Draft A). i. The group kicked off with a discussion of section 5.2.2 regarding the short circuit rating of the three-position high voltage switch, and gaps in the wording of the current standard. The group began a review of a proposal submitted by L. Dix, with the focus of discussion on defining the performance of the switch. Draft wording was developed and will be sent to the WG. ii.There was a suggestion regarding polling the utility network users in North America regarding typical network circuit relay protection settings to assist the WG in establishing the proper short circuit ratings of the high voltage switch. L. Dix volunteered to poll network users in this regard via a user group email system. iii.The WG then began discussion of section 5.2.5 regarding dielectric properties in the open position. J. Rosetti questioned whether an AC test was the same as a DC test. Can the manufacturers use an AC factory hipot to test switch and have the switch withstand the DC hipot voltages used for cable testing? Should the test be done in the actual switch chamber to include actual clearances? What value of AC will represent the DC test voltages? L. Dix offered to provide historical information on this topic. The group will continue discussion at the next meeting. J.The meeting was adjourned at 10:45am with the next meeting in Dallas, Texas. 7.7.5.4 Secondary Network Protectors (C57.12.44) D.H. Mulkey, Chairman 1. The WG was not scheduled to meet. 2. The standard was published in 2005 3. Reaffirmation or PAR will be needed in 2010 Ventilated Dry-Type Network Transformers (C57.12.57) A.L. Robinson, Chairman 1. The WG was not scheduled to meet.

Audible Sound and Vibration (J.L. Puri) Meeting Minutes Montreal, Canada, October 26, 2006

7.8.1 Introduction/Attendance The Audible Sound and Vibrations subcommittee SC met Wednesday at 8:00 AM with eleven members and nine guests present.

7.8.3 Working Group Reports The WG for Sound Level Measurement Guide reported that Draft 4 of this guide is now ready for balloting in the SC. This draft is based on considerable amount of technical material from the IEC document on the same subject. Jeewan Puri is working with Jodi Haasz of the IEEE for resolving any copy right issues and finalizing the titles under which this document will be published. - Ramsis Girgis reported on the sound intensity measurements that he and his associates have made. They confirm the conclusion of earlier work done in Cigree that and conclude that 1. Sound Intensity measurements are more accurate. 2. Unless corrected Sound pressure measurement can differ as much as 5db due to measurement error. 3. Discrete frequency sound level measurements can have even higher error. 4. Sound Pressure Measurements in the near field can have error. The SC is going to review the final version of the extended table for standard sound levels for power transformers and approve it for inclusion in C57.12.00 for power transformers by our next meeting. Ramsis Girgis made a presentation on 50Hz/60Hz sound level conversion. 1. The core noise difference between 50 and 60 Hz measurements is 3.6 dB. 2. The winding noise difference between 50 and 60 Hz measurements is 4.6 dB. 3. These differences can be higher due to mechanical resonances. A tutorial on this information will be included in the Sound level measurement Guide.

Jeewan Puri will establish the schedule for the revision of Section 13 in the test codes C57.12.90 and C57.12.91 and report in the next meeting.

7.8.2 Meeting adjurned at 9:10 AM.

No meeting was scheduled. 7.9.4.2 TF - Revision of C57.19.100 Tommy Spitzer, Chair

The meeting was called to order at 3:15 on Oct. 24 with 13 members and 13 guests, 2 guests requested memberships. The 2006 spring minutes were approved as written. There were no Patent issues from anyone in the meeting. The chair announced that the PAR had been approved until 2010 but felt that most of the work had been done and would like to be ready for ballot after the spring 2007 meeting to be held in Dallas. Draft 1 is in PDF format and posted on the Transformer Committee website. Some inconsistent nomenclature had been resolved. One of the Manufacturers reported that they were working on making the new document consistent with the latest revision of C57.19.00, and two other manufacturers would provide new wording to clarify the ratings of their draw rod bushings. The chair received permission from IEEE and the authors or various sections to use Word format for future drafts to make revisions easier. Draft 2 should be sent out in December to allow time for input before the next meeting. The meeting was adjourned at 3:35.

No meeting was scheduled. 7.9.4.4 C57.19.03 DC Bushing Standard Fred Elliott, Chair

No meeting was scheduled. 7.9.4.5 IEC Bushing Standards Activity - John Graham of Trench Ltd., UK

John Graham reported as following; IEC BUSHING STANDARDISATION WORK Within IEC, standardisation of bushings is covered by Technical Committee TC36: Insulators, Subcommittee SC36A: Insulated Bushings. Sub-committee officers are: Chairman: Secretary: Lars Johansson, ABB, Sweden. Vacant.

The last meeting of SC36A was held at the IEC General Meeting in Berlin, Germany, on September 27th 2006. The Group Secretary has had to withdraw and the Italian National committee hope to propose a replacement shortly. SC36A MT5: Project Leader: IEC 60137: Insulated bushings for alternating voltages above 1kV. John Graham, Trench-UK.

A Committee Draft for Vote (CDV) was distributed for comment by National Committees in October 2005 and National comments were received in July 2006 for discussion in Berlin. The CDV received three negative votes (from Germany, Italy and Japan) but the overall majority acceptance allows it to proceed to the Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) stage. As reported previously TC14 would prefer that all dielectric tests on to the transformer have been applied to the bushing, with a margin of 10%. The CDV represents compromise agreed with TC14 representatives in the MT. However, TC14 have stated that if the full tests are not included in the bushing standard, they will be included in the next revision of IEC 60076-3. Discussions in Berlin should allow the Italian and Japanese votes to be changed to positive at the final stage with the new edition being published in 2007. The objections from TC14 will mean work has to start again immediately and it is proposed to hold a meeting of the Officers of SC36A and TC14 to resolve differences. The attached tables show typical differences in bushing routine tests between IEEE and IEC standards and the requirements from TC14. Other Work SC36A MT4: IEC 62199: Bushings for HVDC application No work at present but the maintenance cycle will be aligned with IEC 60137 for review in 2008.

SC36A MT6: IEC 61464: Dissolved gas analysis of bushings. This document will be reconfirmed until 2010 and eventually incorporated into a revision of IEC 60599. SC36A MT7: IEC 61463: Seismic qualification of bushings. This document will be reconfirmed until 2012. 7.9.4.6 IEEE 693 Bushing/Transformer Interaction Investigation Lonnie Elder (presented by Frank Wolfe) Shake table testing of bushings mounted on simulated transformer tank lids and/or turrets is planned for March 2007 in Buffalo, NY. An update on this activity is posted in the Bushing Subcommittee area of the Transformers committee website. This work was presented to the subcommittee at the Costa Mesa meeting by Dr. Anshel Schiff. 7.9.5 Old Business GSU bushings were reviewed and discussed. At present, there are no IEEE Standards or Guides to properly address GSU bushings. Due to their specific natures, it would be meaningful for the Bushing Subcommittee to start looking at the subject. The chair is planning to have a time slot requested during 2007 spring meeting and also asking for an volunteer to chair the meeting. As a start-up, a proposal for GSU bushings was presented by Peter Zhao.

7.9.6 New Business The chair requested suggestions from subcommittee members and attendees for technical presentations at future subcommittee meetings. Presentations should be relevant to the development of bushing standards. Keith Ellis indicated that IEC bushing standards call for lightning impulse as a routine test on all the bushings, and IEEE bushing standards might need to address this test too if considering the harmonization between IEEE and IEC standards. A recommendation will be prepared and sent to the Subcommittee for review.

7.9.7 Technical Papers No activity was reported for this mtg. 7.9.8 Adjournment The meeting adjourned at 4:15 PM. Minutes submitted respectively by, Peter D. Zhao Secretary Bushing Subcommittee

Dry Type Transformers SC - (C. W. Johnson, Jr.)

7.10.1 Introductions and Approval of Minutes The Dry Type Transformer Subcommittee met in Montreal, Canada on Wednesday October 25, 2006 with 14 members and 6 guests present. Introductions were made and the attendance roster was circulated. Minutes from the March 22, 2006 Costa Mesa, CA meeting were reviewed and approved. The chair reminded the attendees that the minutes posted after each meeting were unapproved and would not be approved until the next meeting. 7.10.2 Working Group/Task Force Reports The next order of business was the presentation of the reports of the various working groups and task forces. See the following sections for the individual reports: 7.10.2.1 WG Dry Type Test Code C57.12.91 Chairman Derek Foster

The Chairman informed the Working Group that the existing PAR for amendment of the standard is being modified to a PAR for revision. Due to the fact that the standard expires at the end of 2006, it was necessary to seek reaffirmation or revision. It is expected that the PAR for revision will be approved at the NESCOM meeting on December 6. A draft for a revised section 5, on resistance measurements, was sent to members before the meeting and was reviewed during the meeting. A discussion was held regarding the proposed clause 5.6.2, relating to the terminals to be used during resistance measurements on wye connected windings. The clause currently permits terminal-to-terminal or terminal-to-neutral measurements, but a proposal was made to identify terminal-to-neutral measurements as the preferred measurements. After discussion, it was decided to leave this clause as written, at this time. A draft 2 of this section will be sent to members of the working group for review. Draft 2 will incorporate changes resulting from comments made regarding section 5 of C57.12.90 and which are equally applicable to C57.12.91. A discussion was also held on whether to revise clause 10.1.5.4, Test sequence for dielectric tests, to include the sequence of tests when both impulse and partial discharge tests are required. Again, it was decided to leave this clause as written. The Chairman requested volunteers for a task force to review section 11 of the standard on temperature rise tests. It is intended to prepare a draft of this section for review before the next meeting. 7.10.2.2 WG Dry Type Thermal Evaluation C57.12.56/60 Co-Chairman Roger Wicks The goal of this working group is to merge C57.12.56 which is the thermal evaluation guide for dry open-wound transformers with C57.12.60 which is the guide for thermal evaluation of cast coil transformers. Martin Navarro presented information on IEC 60216, thermal evaluation of electrical insulation materials, which references a weight loss method for determining life of a solid resin or varnish. This was as follow-up from a previous working group meeting. The working group spent the rest of the meeting reviewing a draft version of the combined standard in preparation for a survey ballot by dry-type subcommittee. Sections of the document discussed, included screening, test cycles, thermal test and dielectric tests.

IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

It was agreed that for the screening and aging cycles that cold shock should be used for all dry-type transformers, which previously had only been applied in the original C57.12.60 document (only for cast coils). In clause 4.5.1 of the draft document the phrase with high-to-low barriers was added to the beginning of paragraph 7. The last sentence of paragraph 6 For all designs, the temperature aging cycle shall commence only when the required hottest-spot temperature is established and shall terminate when the cool-down period starts. was moved to after paragraph 7 as well. In clause 4.6 Cold Shock, the reference to cast coil designs only was removed. In clause 4.8, it was agreed that the models should go through the same dielectric test cycles as the full size coils, and that order of dielectric tests was changed to: a) b) c) d) e) f) Turn-to-turn; Layer-to-layer; Disk-to-disk; Section-to-section; Winding-to-winding; Winding-to-ground.

In Clause 4.8.2, disk-to-disk dielectric test was added as a mode of potential failure to test. The chair finished the meeting by pointing out that the members of the working group should evaluate the clause 4.2, Test Models, and offer any upgrades to this section by the end of November. The chair will circulate this current version of the combined draft for this purpose. Any additional comments should be provided at this time. Upon receipt of all of the comments, the chair will circulate a survey ballot to the dry-type subcommittee by end of the year. 7.10.2.4 Dry Type Reactor TF Chairman Richard Dudley The Dry-Type Reactors T.F. met in the Cartier A Meeting Room of the Delta Centre-Ville Hotel in Montreal, P.Q. on Oct. 23, 2006 from 8:00 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. There were 7 members and 3 guests present. Steve Wolter of Ameren requested membership. The following are the highlights. 1. 2. Introductions were made. The minutes of the Dry Type Reactors T.F. meeting in Costa Mesa were approved. Note: The minutes of the Montreal meeting of the T.F. will not be approved until the meeting in Dallas, Texas. 3. 4. IEEE patent policy was reviewed and no patent issues were identified. The remainder of the meeting was devoted to the revision of IEEE C57.16. The following are the key points. (i) The Chairman reported that he had applied for a PAR for the revision of IEEE C57.16 and expected it to be approved the week of Oct. 23, 2006. (ii) The Chairman, Richard Dudley, briefed the T.F. on his conversion with Jeff Nelson, the Chairman of the IEEE Switchgear Committee, re Annex E. Per Jeff Nelson the IEEE Switchgear Committee has concerns regarding the content of the annex and believes that the content falls within the jurisdiction of the IEEE Switchgear Committee. One proposal is for the T.F. to consider a joint paper with the CB S.C.

The Chairman asked for input from T.F. members. The most significant comments are as follows. A joint paper was deemed not adequate. The annex was felt to be a crucial addition to IEEE C57.16 as it would guarantee that the information re possible CB TRV issues associated with the application of current limiting reactors would be readily accessible to an end user. This sentiment was expressed by a number of utility engineers present; Pierre Riffon of H.Q., Les Reckseidler of Manitoba Hydro, Steve Wolter of Ameren, etc. If the IEEE Switchgear Committee produces a future document that adequately addresses the issues of circuit breaker TRV and the application of current limiting reactors it will be referenced. The Chairman noted that comments to-date from the IEEE Switchgear Committee were primarily editorial and not technical. It was decided to continue to refer to circuit breakers in the annex and not switching device but not to discuss specific types of circuit breakers. Precedent re the inclusion of the annex on CB TRV issues associated with the application of current limiting reactors in IEEE C57.16 exists. The IEEE application guide for shunt capacitors (Power Apparatus S.C. of the IEEE Transmission and Distribution Committee) contains information on CB TRV issues. Utility engineers, due to downsizing, typically do not have time to research papers or ancillary document sources. All relevant information should be included in an equipment standard; including basic application related information: More detailed application information can be referenced. The basic conclusion is that current limiting reactor application issues, such as CB TRV, should be addressed in the series reactor standard; IEEE C57.16. Reactors are used in conjunction with shunt capacitor banks for various reasons. CB TRV issues could arise depending on the location of the reactor; reactor before or after CB etc. The TRV problem could be related to CB reignition. This will be addressed as a NOTE in the annex covering reactors used in shunt capacitor banks and will reference Annex E as appropriate. Steve Wolter agreed to provide a recent paper on the subject as background information. Once the annex is modified, NOTE etc., it will be sent to the IEEE Switchgear Committee for comment. The basic conclusion is that current limiting reactor application issues, such as CB TRV, should be addressed in the series reactor standard; IEEE C57.16. Annex E will be modified to reference specific parts of CB standards and guides as appropriate. The Chairman requested input from T.F. members and agreed to produce a new draft of Annex E. Should an informed ballot of the IEEE Switchgear Committee or CB S.C. be conducted or should a final version of the revision of IEEE C57.16 be produced ASAP to allow adequate time after formal IEEE ballot to address possible negative ballots from IEEE Switchgear Committee members? The Chairman will take the above into consideration in a future conversation with Jeff Nelson. The re-draft of clause A5.6.3 in Annex A, prepared by the Chairman, re audible sound tests on filter reactors was discussed. More input was requested from T.F. members. The specifics re sound measurement of filter reactors should be addressed but the IEEE sound measurement guide now under preparation should be referenced for more general aspects.

(vii) De-Qing of filter reactors and impact on test code will be addressed by Les Reckseidler. Impact on specification and temperature limits (compatibility with other filter reactor components) will be addressed. (viii) Reactors in enclosures (current limiting reactor in steel or FG enclosures) will be addressed in an annex; specification issues can impact test code. Considerations include type tests, losses measurement, short circuit type tests, etc. filter reactors in sound enclosures and impact on test code will be addressed in Annex A which covers filter reactors. Areas for consideration are temperature rise, type tests, sound measurement. The Chairman will produce draft material before the next T.F. meeting. The meeting adjourned at 9:15 a.m. 7.10.2.4 Dry Type General Requirements Chairman John Sullivan

The first item in the agenda was to establish three (3) task force groups to review outstanding issues from the latest revision of this standard and to provide recommendations for a par to the next revision. The task force groups were formed and leaders selected. It is suggested that the task force groups activity be handled through the transformer committee web site and e-mail. It is also suggested that the recommendation on action items be available for discussion at the next working group meeting in Dallas. It is also hoped that the recommendation at the Dallas meeting can be the basis for the request for a new par. A proposal to place a graph in this standard to de-rate kVA ratings for high ambient conditions was suggested. The working group indicated that information on this subject can be found in other standards. 7.10.4 Chairmans Remarks and Announcements The SC Chair announced that The reaffirmations of C57.94, the IEEE Recommended Practice for Installation, Application, Operation, and Maintenance of Dry-Type General Purpose Distribution and Power Transformers AND C57.12.59-2001, the IEEE Guide for Dry-Type Transformer ThroughFault Current Duration were approved and the reaffirmation packages submitted to RevCom pending review and approval at December, 06 meeting. The PAR for PC57.12.51 the Ventilated Dry-type Power Transformers, 501 kVA and Larger, Three-Phase, with High-Voltage 601 to 34500 Volts; Low-Voltage 208Y/120 to 4160 Volts General Requirements Recommendation: Approve new PAR until December 2010. This document is the first of four former NEMA dry-type documents transferred to the IEEE. PARS for the other 3 documents will soon be submitted with the goal of forming the working groups at the Dallas meeting. This will require four additional meeting slots for dry-type transformers. The SC chair expressed the sincere thanks of the SC to Cecile Wicks, Roger Wicks wife, for converting the text of the former NEMA documents to electronic format. As engineers are world renown for their typing skills, we could have probably completed the task in 18 months or less, but Ceciles efforts are still greatly appreciated. Charles Johnson

7.10.5 New Business Roger Wicks noted that there was a meeting this week on IEEE 638, the IEEE Standard for Qualification of Class 1E Transformers for Nuclear Power Generating Stations which includes both dry and liquid transformers. Roger noted there was information in the annex calculating insulation life per hour for dry transformers as well as referencing both C57.12.56/ C57.12.60 the thermal evaluation guidelines for open-wound and cast coil technologies and C57.96 the dry type loading guide. Roger stated that he believed the document had been reaffirmed several time and that perhaps we should review the document for coordination with our latest standards. The SC committee chairman suggested that the SC members attempt to attend the next meeting of this grouping Dallas and also review the document.

There being no further business, the subcommittee meeting adjourned at 2:45 PM

7.11.2.2.4 C57.12.34 Three-Phase Padmounted Distribution Transformers Ron Stahara & Steve Shull Co Chairs rjstahara@msn.com & sshull@empiredistrict.com PAR Status: New PAR required for next revision PAR expiration Date: N/A Current Standard Date: Published March 8, 2005 (2004 date on document) Current Draft Being Worked On: D1 Meeting Time: October 23, 2006 Time: 1:45 PM Attendance: 44 Total 20 Members 19 Guests 5 Guests Requesting Memberships Ron Stahara called the meeting to order, introductions were made, and an attendance roster was circulated. Ron reviewed the IEEE Patent Policy and asked the group if there were any patents that needed to be disclosed. None were announced to the group. The minutes were reviewed and approved as written. Steve Shull discussed the voltage levels of the standard. He pointed out that the values of 12,000 and 16,340 voltages were not included in ANSI C84.1. These were also not specified in the C57.12.10-1997. After some discussion, a motion was made by Ken Hanus and seconded by Myron Gruber to keep these voltages in the applicable tables. The motion was approved. The working group then discussed the Table 1 kVA ranges. Ali Ghafourian asked that the kVA range be lowered on a number of voltage levels. It was the conscience of the group that at 125kV BIL and below, the kVA range would be lowered from 75 kVA to 45 kVA. A discussion ensued concerning the 34,500 BIL level shown in the document as well as associated kVA ranges. It was decided by consensus that the 34,500 GrdY/19,920 kVA levels would be used for this voltage. Some discussion was followed by a motion made by Iqbal Hussain and seconded by Myron Gruber to change the BIL level to 150kV to match the

Page - 122

IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

BIL of the 34,500 GrdY/19,920 kVA. It was further clarified by changing the Table 1 footnote d to the following;The highest BIL level for separable insulated connectors is 150 kV BIL. If 200 kV BIL level is required, bushings must be used. The amendment to the motion and the motion both passed. There was a request from one of the working group chairmen, Steve Shull, that a task force be established to develop a recommendation on Table 2 which discusses no-load tap values. The chairman of this group was Jerry Murphy, with members of Iqbal Hussain and John Crotty. It was their charge to develop this table either using pure voltage taps or specific voltages or some combination thereof. They were given comments from David Gilmer who was making a case for pure percentage taps. They will report at the next meeting. The first draft of this standard was submitted to the working group and it was pointed out that this was extremely rough. Another task force was assigned the task of reviewing all of the drawings in the draft. The chairman of this group was named as Iqbal Hussain. The following individuals volunteered to work with Iqbal to accomplish this task; John Rossetti, Ken Hanus, Tom Callsen, and Dwight Parkinson. Dwight volunteered at the end of the meeting. They will provide their result to Steve Shull who will make correction to the document for submission to the Working before the meeting in March.

The patent policy was discussed and no issues were identified. A brief review of the document history was provided and how it relates to both C57.12.10 (Power Transformers) and C57.12.34 (3PH Padmount Transformers). Balloting closed 3/17/06, with 77% of ballots returned and 86% were affirmative. There were 11 negative ballots and a total of 90 comments. Administrative Issues: The PAR is set to expire at the end of 2006, therefore a 1 year extension has been requested. A PAR revision request has also been submitted in order to match the PAR with the actual document. Document Review for Ballot Comments: The focal point of the meeting was to address a significant number of comments submitted by Dennis Marlow. The WG also was able to resolve a number of open issues submitted during the balloting process. New issues are being tabled for future revisions. Specific Elements Addressed: Section 5.1.1 Tap Changer: Decide to allow the tap changer handle on the cover when bushings are cover mounted. Added a sentence to clarify that only DETCs are covered by this document. Section 1.2 Mandatory Requirements: Additional clarification was requested to define what elements of the standard are mandatory. The WG felt no additional changes are needed. Tables 4.2 & 4.3 Voltage Applications: Clarified that the voltages defined are the Winding voltages. Also modified a few of the min & max values that the WG felt was acceptable to include. Section 4.2 KVA Ratings: The 1PH KVA ratings wont be modified to eliminate the ratings beyond 3333 KVA. Section 4.5 Taps: Section was revised to clarify possible configurations. Table 4.5 Percent Impedance Voltage: Modified title, clarified that the KVA ratings will cover both 1PH and 3PH for the ratings shown, and added a line for 750-4999 kva to address 350kV BIL. Section 5.2 Bushings: Suggested rewording for neutral bushing ratings was reviewed. Decided to keep this paragraph as written. Section 5.10.2 Tanks: Removed the word minimum.

Section 5.15 Insulating Liquid: Decided to leave the sentence as written. Any expanded info for fluid limitations should be handled outside this document. Section 5.1.5 Pressure-Vacuum Gauge: Reference to shall be readable to a person standing at the level of the base was questioned. Similar language is used in section 5.6 referring to eye level and the WG felt that this is a generally accepted term. Suggestions were made to reference NEC, NESC, and C12 (Metering Standards) for additional guidance. General Editorial comments were reviewed throughout the document. Reference to the standards dates were covered with Dave Ringle from IEEE prior to the meeting. Dates are not required unless citing specific tables or clauses. Will need to review these references throughout the document. Comment Resolution: For the supplemental comments provided by Dennis Marlow, a response will be sent to him right after the Transformer Committee meetings that address all his issues. All other comments from the ballot process will be responded to shortly after the meetings. A few of the negative ballots will need to be responded to direct to try and avoid ongoing negatives. All but a few comments have been addressed and incorporated into the draft. These open comments refer to items related to testing, sealed tank, and flange dimensions. The most challenging of these open comments are related to test requirements with respect to definitions of Distribution Transformers in C57.12.00 & C57.12.90. A few general edit items also need to be addressed including definitions, references, identification of WG members, and document format. The graphics need to be revised and a missing figure added. Re-circulation of the ballot should be issued prior to the next meeting. The meeting adjourned at 12:07 pm

Delectric Test Subcommittee (Loren B. Wagenaar)

The Dielectric Test Subcommittee (DTSC) met on Wednesday, October 25, 2006, in Montreal, Canada with 55 members and 73 guests present. 6 of the guests requested membership and are welcomed into the Subcommittee. See the last page of these minutes for attendance list.

7.12.1

Chairmans Remarks

1) The Chair reviewed highlights of the Administrative Subcommittee meeting held on Sunday: a) The next meetings: Mar 11-15, 2007 in Dallas, TX; Oct 14-18, 2007 in Minneapolis, MN. b) There was discussion on the MyBallot system. It is now permissible for a PAR to be signed by the appropriate WG Chair instead of the SC Chair. This change was made since the WG Chair is more familiar with the details of the work at the WG level. c) The Administrative Subcommittee would like all WG & TF Chairs to know that they can schedule working meetings at the General Meetings. d) Ernst Hanique announced that he has changed jobs and will no longer be participating in Transformer Committee activities. Ernst was a valuable contributor to past Dielectric TSCest projects, and he will be missed. Thanks and good luck to Ernst in his future endeavors. e) This past Sundays tour of IREQ laboratory turned out to be an embarrassing blemish for the Transformers Committee. 117 people signed up to attend, but there were 33 noshows. In the future, if you sign up for an event, please notify the organizer if you do not intend to participate 2) The minutes of the Spring 2006 meeting in Costa Mesa, CA were approved as written, and are available on the IEEE Transformers Committee Web Site.

Working Group Reports Working Group on Acoustic Partial Discharge Tests in Transformers Harley, Chair; Alan Darwin, Secretary J.W.

Attendance: 14 members and 38 guests. Attendees introduced themselves. The minutes from the 20 March 2006 Costa Mesa meeting were approved. IEEE Patent disclosure requirements were discussed and a request was made for attendees to identify or disclose any patents that may be related to the work of the WG. There were no responses. The main discussion was about the balloting and subsequent need for revisions to PC57.127 Draft Guide for the Detection and Location of Acoustic Emissions from Partial Discharges in OilImmersed Power Transformers and Reactors.

IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

1. The Guide was balloted between June 29 and July 29, 2006. There were 95 eligible people in the ballot group. There were 77 votes received, which is 81% returned, so the ballot met the 75% returned ballot requirement. The ballot also met the 75% affirmation requirement. The response was 68 affirmative votes and one negative vote with comments for 99% affirmative. There were eight abstention votes for 10% abstention. 2. The comments associated with the one negative vote were all editorial in nature. The voter agreed to change to a positive vote if his suggested revisions are made. This has been done except there may be difficulty in improvement of one of the figures. The possibility of enhancing the figure will be discussed with the IEEE editor. 3. The most important revisions in response to voter comments were (a) clarification of wave propagation in the transformer tank wall and (b) addition of characteristics of core to wall PD to Table 4 Comparison of electrical and acoustic PD signals. As the result of the discussion of acoustic waves, WG members will add a definition for burst count and use of this information and add the use of oscillation count information to that definition. 4. Other technical and legal comments and two added subclauses and references were discussed at the WG meeting The consensus of the Working Group is that the PC57.127 Guide will be ready for recirculation ballot when the above changes are made. This will be done in the near future.

7.12.2.2

Working Group on Revision of Low Frequency Tests Bertrand Poulin, Chair

The meeting was held on Monday October 23rd at 11h00 am. After the usual introduction and display of IEEEs Patent policy, the minutes of the previous meeting were approved as written. Next, Dr. Lemke presented his report on the task force meeting for the revision of C57.113 (IEEE Guide for Electrical Measurements of Partial Discharges in Transformers). The minutes of this meeting are found in Appendix 1. The main topics are: I. The process of revision of the guide is going well. Comments and suggestions after draft 4 were incorporated in draft 5, circulated in the last several weeks and reviewed at the meeting. II. The main topic of the discussion was focused on the fact, that by the harmonization of the IEEE Guide C57.113 with the standard IEC 60270, aspects of copyright permissions have to be taken into consideration. See the minutes attached below for more details. III. As the document has reached a point where it will soon be ready for balloting, a PAR has been initiated. The submittal of the PAR has been delayed for administrative reasons, but the issues have been resolved and it will be submitted soon. The rest of the meeting was devoted to the review and discuss a proposal for modifications to C57.12.90, sections 10.5 to 10.11 related to low frequency dielectric testing. Most of the proposed changes have little technical content except the following items: For the induced test, it is suggested to measure the pd level before the enhancement and after the enhancement. It is proposed that a maximum increase of 150 pC between these two measurements be added as a new criteria. If not met, a new enhancement must be made.

10.8.2 Induced test on class 2 power transformers test procedure. For the case of transformers with an OD rating (cooling mode where the oil is forced directly in the windings by pumps), it is suggested to have the pumps running for the duration of the induced test. This applies to the first unit of a design (design test). And last, at a previous meeting, before the change in chairmanship of the WG, it had already been agreed that in section 10.10.5, the table for temperature correction of power factor measurements would be removed as it does not apply to all transformers and actually may introduce more errors than correction. Evidence of that has been presented at a previous meeting. Mark Perkins will forward the agreed proposal to the chairman.

Among the editorial changes, since C57.113 is being revised and will adopt new definitions, the wording in C57.12.90 will reflect these changes as well in an effort to keep the two documents in sync. In particular, the term apparent charge level will be promoted in lieu of partial discharge level in order to emphasize the fact that what we are measuring is an apparent charge and not an actual partial discharge. Appendix 1 - Minutes of the Task Force Meeting Electrical Partial Discharge Measurement C57.113 Chairman - Eberhard Lemke 1. Introduction The Chairman opened the meeting at 8:00 a.m. and welcomed the members and guests. There were 32 attendees present, 17 of them TF members and 15 guests. 2. IEEE Patent Policy The IEEE Patent Policy was discussed based on the submitted transparencies. There were no patent issues to be discussed. 3. Approval of Agenda The tentative agenda was approved as submitted. 4. Approval of Minutes of the previous Meeting The minutes of the previous TF meeting in Costa Mesa, CA were approved as written. 5. Activities for revision the IEEE Guide C57.113 The comments and suggestions from Draft No. 4 were incorporated in the recent Draft No. 5A, which was circulated prior this meeting and reviewed today. The main topic of the discussion was focused on the fact, that by the harmonization of the IEEE Guide C57.113 with the standard IEC 60270, aspects of copyright permissions have to be taken into consideration. In order to eliminate possible conflicts the TF members agreed to change the wording and the technical content of paragraph 3, DEFINITIONS. A new definition of the PD quantity Apparent charge was introduced, which is based on the physical background and more closely follows the definition given in the relevant IEC standard. In addition definitions for the Calibrating charge and the Scale factor were introduced, which cover the technical content of IEC 60270 and can be easily applied in actual practice. Finally the complex wording of

IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

IEC Largest repeatedly occurring PD magnitude was replaced by the simple term Apparent charge level. 6. Future work The comments and suggestions made during the discussion will be incorporated into the next Draft after which the document will be ready for balloting by the TF members. Furthermore a PAR will be initiated which is requested for C57.113 to become a Recommended Practice rather than a Guide.

7.12.2.3 Working Group on Revision of Impulse Tests Pierre Riffon, Chair; Peter Heinzig, Vice-Chair The WG met on October 24, 2005, from 3:15 pm to 4:30 pm. Fourteen members and twenty-six guests attended the meeting. The agenda was accepted as written. The minutes of the Costa Mesa meeting were approved as written. The IEEE patent disclosure requirement policy was discussed. Reference to the package posted on the IEEE Transformers Committee Web site was made. None of the members and guests present during the meeting were aware of any patents related to the work of this WG. The first technical subject on the agenda was the review of the survey made within the WG membership on September 19, 2006 concerning the revised proposal on lightning impulse test procedure for cases where the tail time of the impulse waveshape can not be obtained. A total of 91 surveys have been sent and only 17 surveys were returned. Out of these 17 returned surveys, 16 were affirmative (94,1%), none were negative (0 %) and one abstained (5,9%). The various editorial and technical comments received were reviewed during the WG meeting and accepted by the WG membership. These comments will be implemented in the next revision of the proposal. These comments do not change the technical content of the proposal. The revised proposal will be sent to Stephen Antosz for the next revision of C57.12.90. The second technical subject was an old business and was related to modifications to clause 10.2.2.1 of C57.12.90 (Switching impulse tests). As agreed upon during the Memphis meeting, only negative impulse waves will be specified. A note will be added saying that reduced level positive polarity waves need to be used to bias the core between 100% shots in order to avoid core saturation. This proposal will be surveyed within the Dielectric Tests SubCommittee prior to the next meeting. The third technical subject was also an old business and was related to modifications to clause 10.3.1.3 of C57.12.90 (Chopped-wave tests). This proposal has been also discussed in 2004 during the San Diego meeting. This proposal gives a more consistent and uniform testing method. A tolerance is now given to the maximum time to chop. Clear prescriptions are now given for the location of the chopping gap as well as the amplitude of the underswing of opposite polarity. Discussion regarding the virtual front time during chopped wave test has lengthily discussed. The virtual front time during chopped-wave test does not necessarily need to be the same as during the full test but should remain within the prescribed tolerances. The text will be modified to take into account the particularity. A revised proposal will be surveyed within the Dielectric Tests SubCommittee prior to the next meeting. Because the WG meeting was running out of time, the remaining subjects of the agenda were not discussed and will be postponed to the next WG meeting.

7.12.2.4

Working Group for Revision of the Impulse Test Guides C57.98 and C57.138 Art Molden, Chair; Joe Melanson, Secretary

The meeting opened at 3:15PM on Monday October 23, 2006 with 34 attendees present of whom 14 were members, 20 were guests. The group introductions were made. The 2005 fall minutes were approved. The 2006 spring minutes were approved. The ANSI patent policy slides were presented to our membership. The group had an opportunity to identify any patent conflicts and none were disclosed. There were no comments regarding the slides. Art Molden opened the meeting with a discussion of a proposal to replace Clause 7 of Draft 1.0 of our guide with a new Clause 7 procedure to determine the required impulse generator size Pierre Riffon commented that the new Clause 7 provided a clear and simple presentation of a method to determine the IG capacitance required to obtain the tail duration when testing low impedance windings. However, Pierre indicated that he thought that the minimum energy concept would best serve the original intention to provide a recommended minimum impulse test capability for given transformer ratings. Art proposed that the latest minimum energy table would therefore be included with some additional explanatory text that he and Pierre would produce in collaboration; Pierre agreed. Under new business Bertrand Poulin commented that the decision to use external resistors on non-impulsed terminals during an impulse test should only be made after consultation with the transformer design department. These external loading resistors are sometime used to help extend the tail of the impulse wave when the available test equipment capacitance is limited. Bertrand suggested that the effect of the loading resistors on the internal voltage distribution of the transformer should first be verified by the designer before the resistors are used in a test. Art asked Bertrand to submit a paragraph to this effect and Bertrand agreed to do so. Pierre Riffon commented that any external loading resistors used should be limited to those values as stated in the latest revision of C57.12.90 and that the values referenced in our guide were not the current values. Art Molden will correct the reference to these values in the next draft of our guide. A motion was made to accept that, with the inclusion of the above three items and with completion of the editorial work on the revision as it now stands, the guide would be ready for a first circulation within the Dielectric Test Subcommittee. The motion was proposed by Bertrand Poulin and accepted by the members. Art Molden asked if there was any discussion or questions relating to the C57.138 Routine Impulse Guide for Distribution Transformers. No comments or questions were raised and the topic was closed. 7.12.2.5 Working Group on Liquid-Filled Transformers Dielectric Test Tables Phil Hopkinson, Chair; Scott Choinski, Secretary There were 46 attendees, 23 members, and 23 guests with 2 requesting membership. Reviewed the agenda for the meeting, and the IEEE patent policy. The Minutes from the March 21, 2006, meeting in Costa Mesa, California were approved.

IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Revised tables were sent out for review after the last meeting. Very good comments were received from Bipin Patel, and were reviewed: A. General 1. Tables on pages 8 and 9 do not indicate that the voltage levels are in kV. OK-PJH 2. Title on Page 9, Class 2 Power Transformers, - Highest Winding Voltage Delete, For Highest Winding Voltage. It is understood by the definition in C57.12.00. If you have to keep it, you may want to change Winding Voltage to Voltage Winding.OK-PJH 3. The C57.12.00 2000 leaves a voltage gap between Class I and Class II transformers for 70kV to 114kV ratings. I know that these voltages are not recognized as standard nominal voltages. The first table on Page 9 is titled, Class 2 (instead of II), < = 72.5kV Nominal System Voltage , is this acceptable? Also, there is no 72.5 kV nominal system voltage per IEE voltage classification. Per C57.12.00, dont you think instead of 72.5 kV we should use 69 kV for defining Class II Power Transformers in all titles in the table on Page 9? I am sure this has been thoroughly debated and agreed to be acceptable. Change to Class II-PJH 4. Table 4 of C57.12.00 2000 shows relationship between Nominal system voltages and available BIL ratings. This information is duplicated in the tables here with Note 3 on Page 8 that indicates this table should be used to select BIL ratings for all three classes of transformers. Is Table 4 going to be left alone? If so, do we need to repeat them here? I am sure this has been already debated. No plans to keep table 4-PJH A. Page 8 1. Note 1 Remove *-Agree PJH 2. Note 3 There is no Class 2 transformer covered on this page. Also need to use I and II instead of 1 and 2. Agree PJH 3. Note 5 The note appears confusing. There are applied levels shown for Gr Y and Imp Y connections. This means there could be unGr Y. If someone purchases a wye-connected transformer and whether specifies it to be designed for ungrouded system application or not, what applied test level will be applicable. Can supplier read a number off the table? The answer to this question will help me or other users to know how the note should be read. Not knowing this answer I can not suggest any changes. I hope you see what I am trying to say. Need to Clarify PJH 4. Note 7 Here is my suggestion for rewording the note For Y-Y connected transformers with a common, solidly grounded neutral the neutral bushing may be selected in accordance with low voltage winding rating.OK if it fits space PJH 5. Note 10 The way the note reads to me the term Single phase refers to all three categories of transformers. If so, I will rewrite it as, Single phase distribution, power, and regulating transformers for - - - - - so on. I also suggest that voltage ratings between terminals be replaced with terminal voltage ratings or better yet voltage ratings. And one more change modify the last sentence as, The test voltage for such transformers, when operated in a three phase connection, are - - - needed for their individual voltage rating. Investigate PJH 6. Note 11 Replace, voltage between terminals with rated terminal voltage. Investigate PJH B. Page 9 Investigate PJH 1. Need to repeat Note 3 appropriately for this table. 2. Similar or identical notes on both pages (page 8 and Page 9) will serve better if numbered the same and in the same sequence as much possible. For example, Note 4 on Page 8 and Note 1 on Page 9.

3. 4. 5. 6.

Under the title,Induced Test modify >72.5 kV to >=72.5 kV. Note 3 same comment as for Note 5 on Page 8. Note 4 same comment as for Note 7 on Page 8. Note 6 same comment as for Note 11 on Page 8.

C. Page 10 Investigate PJH 1. Delete 1.2x50 u-sec. Its part of test code.And if you include here then what about switching impulse details in the same manner? I also suggest we replace BIL in the first column with Full Wave to be consistent with the heading of the other two columns and add BIL underneath kV Crest in line with 1.1*BIL. 2. Switching impulse is a line to ground application per the requirements of IEEE standard and the test code. So, I think we should delete Phase to ground specified from the note at the bottom of the page. D. Page 11 I assume the table shown here is for information and not part of the standard. True PJH Other comments and changes to the tables: Pierre Riffon proposed removing the definition of Class I and Class II from the tables. Straw poll of TF supported (20 for, 1 opposed) and proposal was accepted. Table Ia, - Delete the values for Gr Y for Distribution Transformers. Note 6, change to Distribution Transformers and Class I shall be not less than 2.0 times nominal system Add a note for Shock wave testing for Class I and Distribution Transformers Note 7, replace bushing with neutral insulation Add note for no routine impulse tests for Class I Remove yellow bands from Class II tables Order the notes so they are in the same order for both tables Change -sec to s It was inquired if anyone still used 350, 450 and 550 as minimum BiL levels for Class II, and there are.

7.12.3.2

High Voltage Test Techniques (HVTT), IEEE Standard 4 - Arthur Molden

Editorial work on the new revision of High Voltage Testing Techniques, IEEE Standard 4 continues. We had a meeting in June during the summer session of the Power Engineering Society here in Montreal and we will meet again in mid November in Lake Placid NY. It is hoped that the first draft of this revision will be ready later this year. 7.12.3.3 No report. 7.12.4 7.12.4.1 Old Business Switching Impulse Test Configuration Surge Protection Devices Bob Degeneff

At the last meeting, a standard test set-up was discussed regarding phase-phase and/or phaseground voltages and that the intended test configuration must be known at time of design to account for the varying stresses. Figures 36 & 37 of C57.98 show that the same voltages are applied whether applied phase to phase or phase to ground. The Chair has reviewed these figures and thinks they are OK, but they do need minor modification to clarify the intent. The Chair will undertake this task. 7.12.4.2 Core Testing

Several years ago Dan Perco submitted a comment about core testing. This issue was never fully discussed. The Chair will forward this request to Bertrand Poulin for consideration by the Low Frequency Test WG. 7.12.4.3 Phase-to-Phase Clearances

The Chair mentioned that there are some lingering questions regarding this issue. The Chair will investigate and report at the next meeting. 7.12.5 New Business

7.12.5.1.1 Impulse Tests on Neutral Terminals Subhash Tuli Subhash said that impulse testing on neutral terminals is currently not covered in C57.12.00 or C57.12.90, and suggested investigation and discussion about future implementation. Much discussion ensued on this and related topics: Phil Hopkinson said that the definition of Routine and Design tests are not well defined and need clarified. Specifically, when is Chopped Wave test to be done. Joe Foldi pointed out that Chopped Wave is part of the impulse series (RW, CW, CW, FW) and is therefore included when Impulse Tests are required. There was discussion about what Impulse Tests should be required for Distribution xfmrs. There was discussion about making Impulse Tests routine for Class 1 transformers. Jin Sim asked if the Standards should really differentiate between Class 1 and Class 2 transformers
IEEE/PES Transformers Committee Main Minutes Fall 2006

Page - 135

(presumably as this applies to impulse testing). Should the definition of Class 1 transformers be changed? The issue to include 69 kV as Class 2 came up in the past, but was tabled. The Chair mentioned that there was a survey several years ago regarding impulse testing of distribution units. However, results were not overwhelming one way or the other, andBut not enough people responded to the survey, so the subject was dropped. Chairs note: The minutes of the Spring 2005 meeting indicates the following: A survey was conducted within the DTSC covering two ongoing issues: Whether to apply impulse tests to all power transformers 18 affirmative, 16 negative and 3 abstentions (48.6 %, 43.2 % and 8.1, respectively). Whether to extend the coverage of Class II transformers down to 69 kV 22 affirmative, 12 negative, and 3 abstentions (59.5 %, 32.4 % and 8.1 %, respectively). Several hand votes were taken, but due to uncertainty in what the specific motion was, these votes are not valid and therefore will not be tallied here. After all this discussion nothing was decided. The most likely course of short-term action will be to resurrect the recent past survey, modify it to address the growing chorus of related issues, and send it out again to the Sub-Committee for comment and proposed path forward. 7.12.6 Meeting Adjourned

The meeting abruptly adjourned at 10:50 a.m. as the time in the time slot had expired.

Germany, France, Spain, UK, Italy and Norway do not support mostly due to referenced standards are IEEE and not IEC documents and conflicts with existing IEC work. The current dual logo process allows approval of the IEEE document with no changes only. IEC is more receptive to using bits and pieces of documents. A question was raised on the ramifications of dual logo if bits and pieces of an IEEE standard are merged into an IEC standard. IEEE staff to be contacted and invited to the next meeting to discuss this issue.

JOINT WORKING GROUP (JWG) TC 10 / TC 14 - 14/539/DC IEC/TC 10 decided to set-up WG 32: Condition assessment and life cycle analysis of electrical equipment derived from oil analyses. Main reason for setting-up this WG is that TC 10 has several standards dealing with transformer maintenance through oil analyses, i.e., 60422, 60599, 61198, etc., and it should be of the most interest to the industry to integrate all this information in one standard, thus providing users with a very powerful tool for this very important task. 14/544/INF lists TC 14 experts to the JWG. Any interested members should contact TA or TAG Administrator to be added to the JWG.
