    Costing and pricing of the network service is an important aspect of owning and operating a distribution "wires" system in the deregulated England and Wales electricity supply industry. At a time of relative stability in the five-year regulatory price control cycle and with the structure of electricity distribution charges attracting regulatory interest, now may be an appropriate time to examine c...

    Over the last few years, several medium-voltage, pulse-width modulated, voltage source inverter drives have been introduced to the market. These drives are based on different power stack topologies and different power devices. This article reviews various MV PWM VSI power stack topologies in the power range 2-7 MW. It also examines and compares a number of different high-power, IGBT-based, convert... View full abstract»

    The efficient use of energy, and in particular electrical energy, is a priority in every developed nation. Engineers are always looking for ways of improving conversion efficiencies in a wide range of engineering processes. One area for potential energy saving is the electric motor, which accounts for around 70% of industrial power consumption. But how can you accurately measure its efficiency in ...
