IEEE Insulated Conductors Committee (ICC) - Fall 2019

The ICC is a technical committee of the IEEE within the Power and Energy Society (PES). The ICC has world-class experts within its ranks that not only develop standards and guides, but also provide opportunities to learn about new innovations, share technical knowledge, and find solutions to vexing problems.

Mission of the ICC

To continuously improve the fundamental technological understanding, practical application, and safe use of conductors having applied insulation or coverings.

Scope of the Committee

Treatment of all matters in which the dominant factors are the design, manufacture, installation, operation, testing and maintenance of conductors, including fiber cores, having applied insulation or covering and their required materials, accessories and structures used in the generation, transmission, distribution and utilization of electric energy.

Included is the treatment of conductors, insulations, shields or screens, sheaths and coverings, accessories, structures, tests and measurements and other components for insulated conductor application. Insulations which are an integral part of machinery, such as magnet wire are excluded.

Also includes treatment of the insulated conductors and facilities required for cable systems at the power generating station, substation, transmission, distribution and utilization levels, and cable and cable systems for special purposes or applications, including all cables identified in the National Electrical Code and associated documents but not excluding international standards, as necessary to further the proper development of products specified in the first paragraph.

Joint or coordinated treatment of certain subjects or applications as it relates to insulated conductors may be required when the subject or application is covered by another Society or Committee having a particular scientific interest or a specific emphasis on particular materials or requirements of the application.

Who can attend a Committee Meeting?

Everyone is welcome to attend and participate in ICC. The strength of ICC is the wide range of expertise and vast collective technical knowledge available from the active participation of volunteer members and guests that include end users, sellers, manufacturers, researchers, educators, and others.
