The IEEE Code of Ethics guides our behavior as professionals, on issues important to the mission of the IEEE. Professional ethics are not the same as the personal or moral ethics that frame our personal beliefs on matters such as lying, stealing, or cheating. Professional and personal ethics can have two dimensions: 1) preventing and avoiding bad t...

In light of the rapid growth of dc loads, ICPS created a small team to outline design considerations for dc distribution and controls. Broad interest in the subject brought in a large group who provided substantial support for the Team. The report begins with a brief background followed by discussion of design considerations that affect ICPS and IA...
Article
The author notes that while having dinner with a colleague and discussing plans for an upcoming conference, they discussed a challenging question: how does one come up with an idea for a technical paper? He realized that, for himself, the idea for article has usually been discovered while exploring "the white space" surrounding a specific topic. "T...
Article
On a shelf next to my desk is a very special memento Louie Powell presented to me when I succeeded him as editorin-chief of this magazine. It is special because it is handmade. He designed the pen, turned the exotic wood for the barrel, selected the hardware, assembled the parts, and filled it with red ink. The pen has been on the shelf for the pas...

IEEE Industry Applications Magazine serves IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS) members in four ways:
Article
Imagine a world with no electricity. We only have to go back a little more than 100 years to a time when even the most industrialized countries were still in their infancy in industrial applications of electrical technologies. At the beginning of the 20th century, power generation involved water wheels, windmills, and steam engines. Power distribut...
Article
Nearly three years ago, the leadership of the IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS) Metals Industry Committee created an opportunity to bring out this special issue of arc-flash hazards in electric power systems. Committee Chair Tom Dionese and Technical Meeting Program Coordinator Doug Cromey felt that the redesigned format of the IAS AnnualMee...
Article
For more than 50 years, IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS) members have been at the forefront of pioneering leadership in advancing knowledge of arcing faults and the application of practical measures to protect people from thermal and blast hazards inherent in electric power systems. This article highlights some of the key milestones in this...
Article
During my 2005–2006 tenure as president of the IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS), the “President's Message” columns in IEEE Industry Applications Magazine carried the theme “getting the most from the IAS.” I would like to continue on that theme for this issue and highlight how you can get the most out of your magazine.
Article
It is amazing how fast the human brain can process multiple streams of thought. “Will you accept the position of editor-in-chief of IEEE Industry Applications Magazine?” When this question was posed to me, I thought about the multiple responsibilities that this would entail. The members of the Industry Applications Society (IAS) are responsible for...
Article
This issue of IEEE Industry Applications Magazine focuses on automation and control. Automation can be defined as the application of sensors, control systems, and information technologies to reduce the need for human work in the production and delivery of goods and services. The benefits to society go beyond this simple definition. Automation and c...
Article
The paper presents the arc flash assessment in petrochemical and chemical industry. This article provides the IAS Cement Industry Committee information and references to help apply the expertise in risk and safety management experience for the specific hazard of electrical arc flash. The information and references provided include the following: (1...
Conference Paper
Managing the risks of fire and explosion in highly hazardous processes is inherent to manufacturing operations in the petrochemical industry. As early as the 1960s, some petrochemical companies had begun applying knowledge of managing the risk of personnel exposure to hydrocarbon fires and explosions to the electrical arc flash hazard. These practi...

In 1960, a large global chemical company began documenting and implementing requirements for preventing injuries from electric arc flash hazards, including appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). Methods evolved from requiring a 100% natural fiber long-sleeve shirt for a specific task to a detailed analysis with multiple flame-resistant cl...
Article
Facts based on research study, Occupational Electrical Injuries in United States 1992-1998 and Recommendations for Safety Research, were discussed. It was observed that a total of 2,287 U.S. workers died and 32,807 workers sustained days away from work due to electrical injuries. It was also found that 98.5% of fatal electrical injuries were attrib...
Article
Key to electrical safety is for those working with electrical energy and those responsible for electrical safety to be aware of standards and regulations that include safety best practices and to have the latest information at their fingertips. That is why the IEEE-SA provided support in developing the IEEE Electrical Safety Resource Center. The El...
Conference Paper
For more than 20 years, each of the authors have led work enabling improvements in electrical safety. Since 1995, they have collaborated on advancing codes, standards, technology and work practices critical for improving electrical safety in industrial work environments. Collectively, the authors have published more than 100 technical articles on e...
Conference Paper
This paper addresses benefits of having a heavily populated electrical safety incident database from which to make decisions on equipment and system design, work practices, training, and improvement programs. Limitations of national and industry electrical accident databases are reviewed. The paper emphasizes the importance of thorough investigatio...
