Benefits of Using IEEE Nuclear Standards - A multi-stakeholder view


On Demand

Duration:60 minutes


IEEE experts will provide an overview of IEEE Nuclear power standards, handbook, history behind standards. You will hear perspectives from nuclear utilities, testing laboratories and manufacturers that use and benefit from using the IEEE nuclear standards. Hear more details about how lab testing is critical in equipment qualification, with some examples shared about seismic and LOCA testing. There will also be and introduction to the proposed IEEE Nuclear Standards Certification Program.


John White

John L White Jr, received his B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Mississippi State University, Starkville, MS. in 1986. In 1986 he joined Texas Utilities, at Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant, as an Associate Engineer. In 2008 he joined True North Consulting, LLC were he serves as the Director of Asia Business Development and as a Senior Consultant. He is a registered professional engineer in the State of Texas.

Mr. White has 30 years of experience within the nuclear power industry as a design and program engineer. His technical areas of expertise are in Environmental Equipment Qualification, Maintenance Rule, electrical cable, lightning protection and maintenance support.

He currently is the immediate past Chair of the Nuclear Power Engineer Committee (NPEC), Sub-Committee 2 (SC2) on Equipment Qualification, Chair of SC2 joint logo working group 2.1 – IEC 60780/ IEEE 323, Chair of the IEC/IEEE 62582 series of standards on condition monitoring, Co-Chair of NPEC’s IEEE Conformity Assessment Program for Nuclear Qualification Standards, the technical liaison between NPEC and China’s State Nuclear Power and Technology Corporation and the technical liaison between NPEC and IEC.

Jonathan Cornelius

Jonathan Cornelius is a Nuclear Product Manager at TE Connectivity in Fuquay-Varina, NC. He joined the IEEE NPEC SC-2 Working Group in 2002 and currently serves as the SC-2 Secretary. He is also co-chair of the IEEE NPEC Conformity Assessment Steering Committee. He graduated with and EE degree from North Carolina State University and owns numerous patents in the electrical engineering field.

Marie Nemier

Marie Nemier began her career in the commercial power generation industry in 1989 after receiving her Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York. While working as a transmission planning engineer, she completed her Master of Science degree in Electric Power Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Marie started her career at Trentec in 1997 as an Equipment Qualification (EQ) Engineer writing test procedures and reports for environmental and seismic qualification test programs such as LOCA and Seismic simulation. She has authored over 1,000 procedures and reports. Mrs. Nemier took over the management of the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) Seismic Qualification Reporting and Testing Standardization (SQURTS) Program for which she has been the project manager and technical author.

In 2004 Trentec was purchased by Curtiss-Wright and in 2010 formed QualTech NP where she was promoted to the EQ Manager. In 2014 Mrs. Nemier took her current position as the Business Segment Director for Commercial Grade Dedication/Equipment Qualification in Curtiss Wright Nuclear Division.

She is a member of the IEEE Standards Association / Power & Energy Society / Power System Relaying Committee / Relaying Practices Subcommittee / Nuclear Power Engineering Sub-Committee 2. She currently is the chair of IEEE C37.98, “Seismic Testing of Relays” and a member of the working groups for IEEE C37.105 and IEEE 344.

Ravi Subramaniam

Ravi Subramaniam is currently serving in the role of Technical Director, IEEE-SA Conformity Assessment Program. In this role Ravi works closely with working groups on post standards implementation which encompasses test plan development and interoperability. Currently he is focused on developing programs in nuclear equipment qualification, telecommunications, power & energy, imaging and sensor technologies. He is the secretary for the IEEE Nuclear Power Engineering Committee (NPEC) Conformity Assessment Steering Committee. Prior to taking on this role, Ravi has served in various technology management roles across the globe. He has previously worked for MET Laboratories, Inc., Honeywell and Ericsson. Ravi studied Electrical Engineering at Arizona State University and Johns Hopkins University.
