Quality Assurance of Power Infrastructure

February 23, 2022
A Pangea SI Expert

Quality Assurance is a field which has gained much significance since solution providers adopted the domain as a Unique Selling Proposition (USP). The difference between a good solution and a great solution is essentially the quality that is delivered in the process. Considering the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), it is essential from a business stand point, to ensure compliance with international standards during the deployment rather than investing in the rectification of snags later.

This article will cover some basics of QA/QC pertaining to Electrical Power Infrastructure which may serve as a key for Quality Inspectors. It must be noted here that the contents covered in this article mainly pertain to tests which may be performed at the deployment site during Site Acceptance Testing (SAT), without requiring highly sophisticated equipment.

1. Quality Control for Power Cables:

Deployment of Power Cables must be aligned with IEC 60502, IEC 540, IEC 60228, IEC 60332-1, IEC 60332-3, IEC 60227, BS EN 50266, BS 6004, BS 6346, BS 7846 and BS 7889.

The following actions, inter alia, must be performed while testing:

2. Quality Control for Distribution Transformers:

Deployment of Distribution Transformers must be aligned with IEC 60076-1,2,3, IEC 60076-3-1, 60076-5 and 60296.

The following actions, inter alia, must be performed while testing:

3. Quality Control for HT & LT Switchgear:

Deployment of HT Switchgear must be aligned with IEC 62271-100, 62271-102, 62271-103, 62271-200, 60694, 60044-1, 60044-2, 6005-1,2,3,5 & 8 along with IEC 60099-4. Deployment of LT Switchgear must be aligned with IEC 60947-3, 60947-2, 60831, 60073, BS EN 60529, IEC 60044-1, 60044-2, 60051-1, 2,3,5 & 7 along with BS 88.

The following actions, inter alia, must be performed while testing:

4. Quality Control for Low Voltage Diesel Generators:

Deployment of Low Voltage Diesel Generators must be aligned with BS 5514, BS 4999, BS 5000-99 and IEC 34.
