Pilot Program for IEEE 1588 Power Profile Certification Testing

Equipment providers following the recent IEC 61850-9-3 and/or IEEE C37.238 Power Profiles are invited to participate in the UNH-IOL Pilot Program for IEEE 1588 Power Profile Certification.  

This effort is in cooperation with the IEEE-SA's ICAP Power Profile Certification Program, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).  

Registration for the UNH-IOL Pilot Program will be opening soon.  Watch this space!

No membership is required to participate in the Pilot Program.  

Power Profile Certification Pilot Program Coverage and Requirements

Membership Status Program Details  Fee

No Membership Required

Access: Provides 3 months of early-access testing for your product against the jointly developed Test Suite Specification (TSS).

Coverage: Participation guarantees that each test in the TSS will be performed at least once on the participating product.  This may result in changes to the TSS test as necessary and re-testing. 

Details: Participants will get results daily and can provide firmware updates throughout the Pilot Program.  With new firmware, best effort will be made to provide retesting of previously tested TSS items.

PATH TO CERTIFICATION: IF all tests pass for a device at the end of the pilot program, then the IEEE-SA should accept the device for as certified (membership in the IEEE-SA Power Profile certification group is required in this case, see below)

Planned start: Late October - January.
