    The number of the measured parameters in a power plant is enormous, and the measurements are distributed all over the plant. Some must be measured at one site and used in other sites, and some must be measured and used in specific online demands. This article introduces components of distributed measurement systems, analyzes the framework of a system that was built at Southeast University, and foc... View full abstract»

    Corrosion is a significant problem for underwater structures, particularly in environments where there are conditions that accelerate corrosion such as stray electrical currents. The New York Power Authority (NYPA) is concerned about corrosion on their 345 kV submarine cable that runs across Long Island Sound and brings 690 MW of power to the 2.6 million people on Long Island, New York. In 1994, a... View full abstract»
