IEEE Standard for heat load calculation

IEEE Standard for heat load calculation

May I know, what is the IEEE Standard used to calculate the heat load from electrical equipment (equipment in electric substation)?
As I go through IEEE Standard 241 that I can found online, I cannot find any calculation inside.
Appreciate if anyone can advise me on this.
Thank you.

RE: IEEE Standard for heat load calculation

In my opinion, what do you seek it is the heat losses in an equipment room, control room or relay room for HVAC calculation purpose.
I think it is no such a standard. However the are studies providing average losses.
ASHRAE Transactions: Symposia
Heat Loss from Electrical and Control Equipment in Industrial Plants:
Part I -Methods and Scope
Part ll-Results and Comparisons
There is an international standard:
VDI 2078 Calculating of thermal loads
