    An approach often used to estimate power-system reliability worth is to determine consumers' monetary losses resulting from service interruptions, i.e. the cost of unreliability. Previously, studies have been conducted to provide estimates of customer interruption costs, and a wide range of methodologies has evolved. There is no universal agreement on the appropriateness of methodologies to partic... View full abstract»

    The authors review the role that customer-oriented demand-side management (DSM) can plan in utility planning, discuss its current state of application, provide a framework for incorporating uncertainty in DSM programs, and present ideas on how DSM programs can be implemented and monitored. They conclude that DSM provides a workable solution to some of the major problems confronting electric utilit... View full abstract»

  • Emerging issues in power system planning

    Publication Year: 1989, Page(s):891 - 898

    Uncertainties in load growth, fuel prices, and regulation are all factors leading to complexity in power-system planning. The criteria and constraints that are important in system planning are reliability, environmental standards, economics, financial ability, and societal impacts. Some of the criteria conflict with the others, requiring some tradeoffs in making planning decisions. To plan a syste... View full abstract»

  • The evolution of electrical and electronics engineering and the Proceedings of the IRE: 1913-37

    Publication Year: 1989, Page(s):837 - 856

    A chronicle is presented of how the Proceedings of the IRE documented and influenced the changes in telecommunications technology and electronics that took place from 1913 through 1937, the first quarter-century of the Institute of Radio Engineers. During these years, the vacuum tube evolved from a laboratory device of low power and frequency into a wide variety of mass-produced tubes suitable for... View full abstract»

  • Least-cost planning: issues and methods

    Publication Year: 1989, Page(s):899 - 907
    Cited by:  Papers (24)

    Electric utility least-cost planning is formulated in terms of supply- and demand-side options, irreducible uncertainties, and stakeholders' objectives. Planning methods include constrained optimization, tradeoff analysis, and game theory. Constrained optimization is the traditional and still most popular approach. Tradeoff analysis, which seeks good compromises, seems most appropriate for today's... View full abstract»

  • On the theory of the electrocardiogram

    Publication Year: 1989, Page(s):857 - 876
    Cited by:  Papers (64)  |  Patents (4)

    The biophysical basis for understanding the electrocardiogram is set forth. Bioelectric sources arise from electrical activity in the heart at the cellular level. The relation of these sources, which can be formally represented as impressed currents, to potentials involves solution of the volume conductor problem. This solution is based on Green's theorem. Sources are related to the transmembrane ... View full abstract»

    A horizontally stratified medium consisting of a fluid layer overlaying any number of solid layers is considered. The depth distribution of the density and of the two elastic parameters from prestack offshore surface data is to be determined. The inverse problem is posed in terms of optimization. Its solution is based on nonlinear least squares. Since the solution of the direct problem is an impor... View full abstract»
