This is a suggestion by Sergio Feitoza. Imagine that you could see in the TV channels a new with such a decision:
- The group of countries G7 decided that, to save the Planet from environmental destruction, IEC standards must require that, for an electrical product to be commercialized, it is mandatory to have the CERTIFICATE of ENVIRONMENTAL EFFICIENCY for Electric Products.
- This certificate attests that the project was made to meet the requirements of the tests prescribed in the product standard but, beyond this, was designed with the minimum necessary use of copper, aluminium, insulating supports, materials etc.
- The test reports issued by the qualified laboratories must explicitly indicate whether the equipment has passed the tests or not.
- The certificate must demonstrate that the minimum material usage requirements have been met. The test reports shall be attached to the Certificate.
This would be a fantastic market because in 2021, few substations equipment meets these requirements.
- To implement this concept the world needs ways to qualify products that are more economical than the current electric power laboratory tests.
- However, test simulations can verify this quickly and inexpensively although IEC is delayed creating a standard on the subject.
- The following article shows how combining test simulation tools with the construction of a small laboratory is an attractive investment, especially for countries with a lack of testing facilities.
- The key to selling products on the market is having a transparent performance report for temperature rise tests, internal arc, and short circuit tests (electrodynamic forces).
