    This article describes some developments in the simulation of radio frequency and microwave systems using numerical and circuit techniques at the Electricity Utilisation Group (EUG). The circuit techniques include network analysis and nonlinear minimisation for the estimation of component values and for the rapid impedance matching of an applicator to the tank oscillatory circuit. The applications... View full abstract»

    Since the lifting of the ban on burning gas to generate electricity in the early 1990s, there has been an enormous increase in the amount of electricity produced from gas. At the present time, almost one-third of the UK's total electricity demand is met by gas-fired power stations. This article looks at the situation in the competitive mid-merit market and makes some predictions on the likely gene... View full abstract»

    Keeping customer voltages within tolerance has always been a priority for distribution network operators. On-load tapchanging transformers and their associated automatic voltage-control relays play a pivotal role in this. Unfortunately, such relays can be affected by the connection of embedded generation. Sometimes this presents an apparent limit to the allowable penetration of embedded generation...

    Unified power flow controllers and interphase power controllers (IPC) are power system devices for the load flow management of AC systems. This article discusses different theoretical and practical aspects of the IPC, which is a robust series controller and interconnection device consisting in each phase of two parallel impedances-one inductive and the other capacitive. The two impedances are norm... View full abstract»

    This tutorial gives an introduction to the field of the wavelet transform. It is the first of two tutorials which are intended for engineers applying or considering to apply WTs to power systems. They show how the WT-a powerful new mathematical tool-can be employed as a fast and very effective means of analysing power system transient waveforms, as an alternative to the traditional Fourier transfo...
