    Faced with multiple options for reinvestment in equipment maintenance, what is the best course of action to maximize reliability at minimum cost? The combination of engineering and financial analyses requires complex mathematical modeling; however, the software must be user-friendly to make the operation of the model simple. With this in mind, substantial effort has been put in developing a suitab... View full abstract»

    The author describes how web and data servers are demanding unprecedented quantities of electric power per unit of raised floor space. Whereas typical commercial offices have power demands on the order of a few watts per square foot of usable floor area, the data centers and mission-critical facilities of high-tech industry have a power demand density that is nearly two orders of magnitude higher,...

    In the software development area, as in most fields of the computer industry, new technologies are trumpeted as revolutionary solutions almost daily, just to disappear silently some time later. This was not the case with open-architecture energy management systems (EMS). About 10 years after their conception, they have proven to be a successful technological approach. But this does not mean that a... View full abstract»

    Deregulation of the energy industry has resulted in the emergence of software that coordinates the functions in power systems. The complexity of these vertically split power systems demand stringent requirements from the employed software. As the market rules change, the regulating policies stated by FERC will need incorporation into the software. By using the latest technology and applying softwa... View full abstract»

    The problem of detecting and locating shorted turns in rotor windings has always been a difficult technological challenge. The winding is completely embedded in the steel, and the turn insulation is not physically loaded until it is subjected to the centrifugal forces produced at rated speed. The problem of detecting shorted turns appears to be very cumbersome. A technique proposed by the Electric... View full abstract»
