    The main objective of predictive reliability analysis is to quantify, predict and compare reliability indexes for various reliability improvement initiatives. This information helps engineers and managers at electric utility organizations decide how to spend reliability improvement dollars by identifying the most effective actions for improving reliability of distribution feeders. There are many t... View full abstract»

    Designed and operated as a totally underground system for environmental and aesthetic reasons, underground cables are exclusively used in the Singapore transmission network at voltages up to 400 kV. Fully metal-clad sulphur hexaflouride (SF6) gas insulated switchgear (GIS) is used at all transmission levels to circumvent land scarcity in the siting of substations. To maintain and ensure...

    Methods for iron loss reduction during manufacturing of wound-core distribution transformers are presented. More specifically, measurements taken at the first stages of core construction are effectively used, in order to minimize iron losses of transformer (final product). To optimally exploit the measurements (feedback), artificial intelligence methods are applied. It is shown that intelligent sy... View full abstract»

    Game theory is a discipline that is used to analyze problems of conflict among interacting decision makers. It may be considered as a generalization of decision theory to include multiple players or decision makers. Here, the author presents an introduction to game theory as well as its application to electric power market allocation problems View full abstract»

    The authors describe how the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) commissioned an implementation and commercialization of a nonintrusive appliance load monitoring system (NIALMS) based on EPRI-developed intellectual property. The system determines the energy consumption of individual appliances being turned on and off within a whole building's electric load View full abstract»
