    Electromechanical oscillations are inherent to interconnected power systems. However, the frequency of the oscillations and the number of generators that oscillate in any electromechanical oscillatory mode depend on the structure of the power system network. Low frequency electromechanical oscillations occur when existing generation/load areas are connected to other similar areas by relatively wea... View full abstract»

    This article describes a data analysis tool that allows electric utility personnel to automatically and accurately compute the location of faults on power transmission lines and analyze fault data without cumbersome manual data retrieval and calculation procedures. When a fault is detected anywhere on the power network, an operator needs only to identify the faulted line, and the data analysis too... View full abstract»

    The insertion of dispersed generation into existing electric power systems has a great impact on real-time operation and planning. Several uncertainties characterize the ability of the existing power system to integrate this form of generation, Hence, dispersed generation must be taken into consideration in power system performance so that operation and security are not disturbed. Dispersed genera... View full abstract»

    Information management technology has undergone tremendous change over the course of the last decade. Exponential advances in hardware, software and communication equipment allow the transportation, storage and manipulation of vast quantities of data at blinding speed relative to just a few years ago. The phenomenal growth of the Internet has delivered unprecedented access to data virtually indepe... View full abstract»

    Transmission users may benefit by analyzing their power transmission system using a suite of public domain tools that could provide insight into the calculations of the transmission provider. The potential benefits of a hands on approach are detailed and the quality and consistency of the calculations should be of interest to all transmission users View full abstract»

    Fuzzy logic controllers are rapidly becoming a viable alternative for classical controllers. The reason for this is that a fuzzy controller can imitate human control processes closely. Fuzzy logic technology enables the use of engineering experience and experimental results in designing an embedded system. In many applications, this circumvents the use of rigorous mathematical modeling to derive a... View full abstract»
