    The Channel Tunnel Project is currently the largest construction project in Europe. Its objective is to create a fixed-link transportation system between the UK and France. Here, the author describes how the development of its power system has basically been the application of well proven and reliable technology to meet the specific and unique requirements of this project.<> View full abstract»

    A new field of application for power engineering lies in the electrical protection of bathing beaches against sharks at luxury tourist resorts. The author reviews traditional methods of protection from shark attack, then discusses the reaction of fish and sharks to pulsed electric fields. An experimental system has been installed at a bathing resort, with promising results.<> View full abstract»

    The author traces the history of a major co-operative research and development project into power system protection involving a team of engineers from the industrial and academic worlds. It began in 1978 and has also involved the CEGB, Hydro-Quebec, Bonneville Power Administration and Hong Kong Electric. The author gives no more than a flavour of the overall activity to be given, but more detail i... View full abstract»

    For pt.I see ibid., vol.5, no.1, p.29-35, 1991. In this, the second part of a three-part tutorial series on the effects of electric generators on power system stability, the author examines inherent stability of the synchronous generator, looks in more detail at the generator and its controls, and introduces the equal-area criterion for salient-pole machines.<> View full abstract»
