For those that are new to the scene, it is the Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Department of the IEEE Industry Applications Society. It is a group of Power Engineers Serving Industry and Commerce. These engineers write IEEE Standards, the Color Book series, used by Industrial and Commercial customers of the Power companies. They hold an annual Technical Conference every May. They also write and present Technical Papers and Tutorials of interest to engineers in this field. This is the fourth time the I&CPS has met in the Tampa Bay area.
