Title: An Analysis of Efficiency Testing Under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act: A Case Study with Application to Distribution Transformers
Published: April 01, 1999
Abstract: The protocols for efficiency testing promulgated by 10 CFR part 430 and established under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 as amended (EPCA) are discussed. The case of distribution transformers, which are covered under the proposed new 10 CFR Part 432, is treated in detail. Model calculations are presented that estimate the probability of demonstrating compliance and the average number of units tested under the 10 CFR part 430 and Part 432 sampling plans. The results of model calculations for the sampling plan contained in NEMA Standard TP 2 are also presented.
