The topic of the 81st General Session of the International Electrotechnical Commission is advisable to link with the geographical and climatic features of the Russian Federation, which determine the specificity of the technological and industrial development of our country, specifically in the field of electronics and electrical engineering, namely:

Russian Federation is located in 3 climatic zones and 8 climatic zones, the average temperature in January is - 19 °C, and 15 °C in July.

The varied terrain: 1/3 of the territory of the Russian Federation is covered by mountains, 2/3 - plain territories;

The size of the territory of the Russian Federation - 17 100 000 square kilometres.

The Russian Federation has a great experience in the application of standards to ensure high reliability of electrical devices, ensuring compatibility of the transport and introduction of energy saving technologies which is relevant and may be of high interest to all member countries of the International Electrotechnical Commission.

Additional requirements to reliability defined by geographic features

Using of electronic devices in different climatic regions and various landscapes is the basis for the development of additional requirements to their reliability. The variety and variability of these conditions constantly generate new challenges in the field of electronics and electrical engineering, and one of the solution methods is the standardization.

Long distances as a driver for standardization in transport sphere

It should also be noted that considerable distance generates the need of development of the transport infrastructure. The challenge is not only to ensure uninterrupted communication between settlements, but also to establish coordination between different elements of the transport network and to create an integrated transport system with elements of interoperability in the country. In this case, the conditions vary: different kinds and types of transport, as well as various transport and passenger traffic. The use of transport telematics, the implementation of elements of interoperability is possible only in terms of improving of electrotechnical standardization. Starting the Moscow Central Circle is one the example of development of transport infrastructure in this area.

Standardization as basis of energy efficiency in industry and trade

Moreover, the questions of energy efficiency have been under the focus of world’s attention recently. Most often, they are considered as a replacement of traditional energy sources to renewable energy, as well as from the point of view of reducing the energy consumption of household appliances.

However, energy efficiency in industry, in conjunction with the Internet of Things technology leads to a breakthrough, reduces costs and improves business support systems. Energy efficiency must be mentioned not only in terms of reducing energy consumption by the enterprises, but also in terms of their conversion to energy supplying companies instead of energy-consuming. In this connection Russian companies actively introduce advanced energy-saving technologies.

Mathematic modeling in “smart industry”

Standardization in the field of electronics and electrical engineering in our opinion should promote the wide and universal implementation of the latest technical and technological achievements, neutralize the imbalance in the use of modern technologies among the inhabitants of large cities and small settlements and work to support the necessary infrastructure.
