Nynas expert re-elected as Chairman of the IEC Technical Committee 10

Nynas Senior Technical Advisor, Dr Bruce Pahlavanpour, will continue to chair the prestigious International Electro Commission (IEC) Technical Committee 10 (TC 10) for a further three years.

Nynas is proud to report that the Standardization Management Board of the IEC has approved the appointment of Dr Pahlavanpour, to continue his tenure as Chairman of the TC 10 for an additional three years. A world-renowned expert in the field of insulating fluids, Dr Pahlavanpour has served as Chairman of the TC 10 for the previous five years.

Representing a range of stakeholders, the TC 10 is a critical body working to prepare product specifications, test methods and maintenance and use guides for liquid and gaseous dielectrics. Dr Pahlavanpour has been involved in the TC10 for more than thirty years, successfully convening working groups and maintenance teams, and sharing his experience for the benefit of the electrical industry.

Three key standards which fall under the scope of TC 10 are IEC60296 (a specification for the supply of mineral insulating oil), IEC60422 (for maintenance of in-service mineral insulating oil), and IEC60599 (dealing with the interpretation of dissolved gas analysis results).

‘’Dr Pahlavanpour’s re-election as Chairman is an acknowledgment of the trust that those working in the electrical, electronic and related technologies industries have in his expertise,’’ adds René Abrahams, Technical Manager Electrical Industry.
