    Power generation from diverse renewable energy sources has been a major objective of government supported energy research programmes around the world for more than a decade. However, despite the attention to a wide range of technologies, only geothermal energy and some forms of hydro power have now reached the maturity needed to compete commercially with fossil and nuclear plants to provide base-l...

    Thyristor-produced harmonics in power systems are gaining increased importance because of the interference and disturbance they cause. Particularly vulnerable are weak power systems and communication systems in close proximity to such power systems. This author presents some actual situations that have been encountered and the remedial measures employed to overcome these harmonic disturbances View full abstract»

    With the expansion of demand immediately after the First World War, serious problems arose in the design of dielectric insulation for high-voltage cables. The author describes these problems and highlights many of the efforts made to overcome them. He describes the failure mechanisms of such dielectrics and examines the research which was carried out to determine failure causes View full abstract»
