    The demand for electricity is known to vary by the time of the day, week, month, temperature, and usage habits of the consumers. Though usage habit is not directly observable, it may be implied in the patterns of usage that have occurred in the past. A short-term load-forecasting (STLF) program that uses an integrated artificial neural network (ANN) approach is capable of predicting load for basic... View full abstract»

    The detection and clearing of transformer faults are intimately connected to the primary switching that is available. Breakers are used both as locations for the current transformers to detect a fault and define the zone of protection and as a way of clearing the fault. The use of so many circuit breakers (CB) is usually not justified economically. As an alternative, motor-operated air-breaker swi... View full abstract»

    In power station management information systems (MIS), an important function is to manage electric facilities (e.g., equipment of main workshop, pipelines). Electric facilities have obvious features: their number is large and they are geographically related. The number of pipelines can reach about 40 types. Most pipelines are under ground and constitute very complicated networks. During the constr... View full abstract»

    The power crisis in California from the summer of 2000 to the spring of 2001 caused great interest and concern in the power industry about deregulation and liberalization of the wholesale power market. In response to this interest, EPRI has developed a prototype computer simulation model to study alternative wholesale power market structures. The results were presented at a workshop organized join... View full abstract»

    As the power business is moving into new territory with market deregulation, there is a need for expressing a view on financial and physical risks. By means of an example published earlier in this magazine, we discuss what could be appropriate measures of risk for a producer. In the article by M.V.F. Pereira, et al. "Managing Risk in the New Power Business," (see ibid., p.18-24, April 2000), manag... View full abstract»

    Beyond price, large energy consumers are increasingly demanding higher value for their energy investment. For many businesses, especially those that are part of the burgeoning digital economy, this includes an expectation of energy delivered at higher levels of quality and reliability. These factors are driving enterprises on both the supply and demand side of energy to seek better strategies to m... View full abstract»
