    The author describes how it is difficult to effectively retrofit utility poles unless standardized methods are developed to understand factors leading to avian electrocutions. Critical metrics are problem structure types, bird species involved and the identification of high raptor usage areas. These data can be determined with ground surveys or through detailed outage records. An emphasis should b... View full abstract»

    The 1992 Energy Policy Act (EPACT) brought significant changes to the US electric lighting industry. One such change required replacing many ordinary incandescent lamps with more energy-efficient tungsten halogen lamps. Tungsten halogen, though, is by no means a new development. As we near the golden anniversary of the halogen lamp's invention, the author looks back and explores the roots of the m... View full abstract»

    The integration of intelligent devices, device-level networks and software into motor control systems can deliver improved diagnostics, early warnings for increased system reliability, design flexibility and simplified wiring. Remote access to motor control information also affords an opportunity for reduced exposure to hazardous voltages and improved personnel safety during startup and troublesho... View full abstract»

    The majority of heat tracing applications deal with winterization for water and water-based processes. Whether for piping, tanks or instruments, control of freeze protection systems are often simple, but not energy efficient. The authors present an approach to this basic application which has yielded direct benefits to users through an alternative control method that typically uses a single-pole t... View full abstract»

    Tanks and vessels have numerous grounding and protection systems. These include static discharge from fluid movement bonding, lightning protection grounding, lightning discharge halo, equipment bonding, cathodic protection, stray-current control, power and external line protection, instrumentation connection and instrumentation protection. Each system has unique requirements. In fact, grounded sys... View full abstract»
