    For pt.1 see ibid., vo.20, no.1 (2000). The assets and working philosophy of individual utilities will in large measure be reflected by the modernization of their power systems in the next 20 years. The power system of the future should enable utilities to: be more competitive with their overall strategies; provide better service; better manage their assets; extend equipment life; improve diagnost...

    This letter presents an approach for rapid calculation of the steady state of time-varying electric networks based on the use of orthogonal series expansions. The method takes advantage of the operational properties available to most orthogonal series expansions, i.e., integration, differentiation, product, and coefficients matrices. An important feature of this approach is that an analytical expr... View full abstract»

    In this letter we present the principles of an integrated control and measurement system which is linked to a DC servo motor used to drive a single-phase induction machine. The role of the DC servo motor is to model the drive from the turbine of a wind energy conversion system (WECS). This drive is in turn physically connected to a single-phase induction machine that is in turn linked to an extern... View full abstract»

    In this letter the dynamics of wire particles in a coaxial gas insulated transmission line (GITL) system with coated electrodes under AC voltage are studied using a computational algorithm. The possibility of the SF6 gas insulation breakdown due to the presence of metallic contaminants was computed at different applied voltages and gas pressures View full abstract»

    This overview of the FACTS program sponsored by EPRI identifies the significant challenges and the adopted technology-based solutions that have been developed. FACTS technology has been successfully demonstrated and continues to be implemented at transmission locations in the United States. A STATCOM, UPFC, and convertible static compensator are discussed. The installed FACTS controllers have prov... View full abstract»

    This work describes the development of a fuzzy logic tool capable of controlling system voltages and VAr resources, as well as processing alarms related to voltage stability. The fuzzy controller monitors voltages and VAr resources and generates appropriate control signals to each VAr source to maintain acceptable system voltage levels. The fuzzy alarm processor generates an individual alarm for e... View full abstract»

  • First electric street lamps

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):39 - 40

    The article briefly describes the development of the first permanent electric street lights in 1879, which were based on arc lamps, in the Public Square of Cleveland. The arc lamps were powered by dynamos. The first lamps were placed on poles or in some cases were suspended on wires between buildings. Arc lamps were soon replaced by incandescent lamps View full abstract»
