Committee D27 Scope
Staff Manager: Kelly Paul
The promotion of knowledge pertaining to electrical insulating liquids and gases, whether of synthetic or natural origin, and the recommendation of standards pertinent to these materials.
The principal materials included in this scope are oils of petroleum origin, synthetic liquids, halogenated and other gases, when used, singularly or as combinations, as electrical insulation or as an environment for electrical insulation.
Standards peculiar to solid insulating materials and varnishes and the development of standards pertaining to the nonelectrical uses of liquid and gaseous materials are excluded from the scope of Committee D27. Development in these fields incidental to the normal work of Committee D27 will be coordinated with the appropriate technical committees of the Society.
