  • Credit taken for simulation system used in aircraft type certification

    In aircraft type certification, simulation system is used for airworthiness demonstration in lieu of real flight test in certain scenarios, and credit needs to be taken for the simulation system to validate it is capable of representing the characteristics of the airplane under certification. The general requirement and approaches for simulation credit taken is discussed. Typical simulation tasks are analyzed, the scope and requirement, as well as the fidelity evaluation method and criteria for simulation fidelity evaluation is established based on the correlation level defined in this paper. Key elements as well as data required by airworthiness authority for the simulation system credit taken are also figured out.

  • Proposed IEEE Certification for Nuclear Qualified Electrical Equipment

  • A Product-Focused Approach to Software Certification

    The self-regulation of critical products doesn't work - certification by overseeing bodies is necessary. As software invades more areas of everyday life, certification of systems containing software is increasingly important for governments, industry, and consumers alike. Even if an organization isn't worried about safety, it must consider the consequences of using mission- critical software that isn't certified or qualified as fit for purposes. The US Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, for example, imposes stringent requirements on companies' financial IT systems. Many standards bodies and licensing authorities describe attributes of processes by which software should be developed to meet certain standards or certification criteria. However, a good process on its own doesn't necessarily result in high-quality software. Standards and certification processes should be primarily product-focused rather than process-based to raise the certainty in evaluation of software reliability. Evaluations should be based on direct evidence about the product's attributes, not circumstantial evidence about the process.

  • Grid-connected PV inverter test system for solar photovoltaic power system certification

    Photovoltaic inverter, that is in charge of electric power conversion, is a critical component used in solar photovoltaic power systems. Many concerns are focused on the operation of photovoltaic inverter due to the worse designing may cause the terrible influences on safety, performance and grid interconnection characteristics of solar photovoltaic power systems. IEEE SCC21 provides a uniform standard, known as IEEE 1547 standard, for interconnection considerations of distributed resources with electric power systems. The standard focuses on the technical specifications and includes general principles, response to abnormal conditions, power quality, islanding, and test instructions and requirements for design, production, installation evaluation, commissioning, and periodic tests. This paper presents a interconnection test system for grid-connected photovoltaic inverter based on such standard. Some of the test items that described in IEEE 1547.1 standard are carried out by the proposed system to verify the overall performance. The system is now introduced into the equipment certification of solar photovoltaic power system in Taiwan; therefore, the description of photovoltaic inverter voluntary product certification system in Taiwan may also be presented in the study.
