    Wavelets are a recently developed mathematical tool for signal analysis. Informally, a wavelet is a short-term duration wave. Wavelets are used as a kernel function in an integral transform, much in the same way that sines and cosines are used in Fourier analysis or the Walsh functions in Walsh analysis. To date, the primary application of wavelets has been in the areas of signal processing, image... View full abstract»

    The analysis of transmission line faults is essential to the proper performance of a power system. It is required if protective relays are to take appropriate action and in monitoring the performance of relays, circuit breakers and other protective and control elements. The detection and classification of transmission line faults is a fundamental component of such fault analysis. Here, the authors... View full abstract»

    Electric utilities all over the world are facing the need for computer system integration to reduce life-cycle cost and enhance flexibility in operation and services. Along with integration of different kinds of data traffic (control, administrative, financial, graphics, etc.), there is a trend toward network computing and sharing of data between increasingly dispersed business offices and compute...

    Software development and maintenance costs continue to decrease as recent graphical user-interface (GUI) techniques advance. Improvement in the hardware cost-performance has also supported GUI success. In the area of modulating control for power plants, however, cost decreases have already been achieved through user-friendly forms. In the area of programmable logic controllers, there are three typ... View full abstract»

    The evolutionary growth in the use and application of microprocessors in substations has brought the industry to the point of considering integrated substation protection, control and monitoring systems. An integrated system holds the promise of greatly reducing the design, documentation, and implementation cost for the substation control, protection, and monitoring systems. Here, the author expla...

    Voltage sags are momentary dips in voltage that may cause misoperations to the electric utility customers' sensitive loads. These misoperations may only be an annoyance to the residential sector, but, on the industrial and commercial front, they can cost millions of dollars each year. It is impossible to eliminate all of these faults and associated voltage sags, but an improvement can be achieved ... View full abstract»

    Electric power transmission access is being opened and many interested parties want to get in on the act. The world of interchange scheduling is now a mixture of both old and new players, with changing rules, and uncertain risks to electric system reliability. Reliable electric system operation requires rigorous discipline in executing interchange schedules. Here, the author examines: whether diso... View full abstract»

    A central tenet of electric power industry deregulation is that the delivery of electric power (a service) must be decoupled from the purchase of the power itself (a product) and priced and contracted separately. Transmission of electricity must be offered and priced separately from the power itself, and delivery of power must stand on its own as a business. Regardless of the precise nature of the...
