Committees of the Technical Council

There is a PES technical committee for most aspects of the electric power industry. These committee play an integral role in the development of IEEE Standards and have a major impact within the industry. The PES Committee structure was reorganized in 2016 - you can view information regarding this change by reviewing the PES Technical Committee Reorganization summary page.
