Welcome to the IEEE Materials Subcommittee Website! You will find the IEEE MSC activities in this area. We are the Subcommittee of the Electric Machinery Committee of the IEEE Power Engineering Society.
Activities focus on the maintenance and development of standards concerning electrical insulation materials of Generators and Motors.
The Purpose of the IEEE PES Materials Subcommittee per the “IEEE Power Engineering Society [Power & Energy] Electrical Machinery Committee Organization and Procedure Manual,” (Last update June, 2004) is:
Treat all matters in which the dominant factors are the requirements, research, development, application, design, manufacture, and testing of insulating, magnetic and conductor materials used in electrical machinery.
Review and revise test codes as required, and provide recommendations for all revisions to standards, recommended practices, and guides within its scope. Sponsor papers, panels, technical conferences, and sessions in the field of insulating, dielectric, conductor, superconductor and magnet materials related to electrical machinery to keep engineers current with the developments in these fields.
Establish and maintain liason with other technical societies, associations, committees and groups concerned with insulating, magnetic and conductor materials used in electrical machinery as required to support and advance the purpose and scope of the main Committee.
