    The power system problems posed by solar cycle 22, which began in late 1986 and is turning out to be one of the most active sunspot cycles on record, are discussed. The particular vulnerability of nuclear power plants is argued. Approaches to mitigating the problem are considered. The need for more data to enable geomagnetic storms to be forecast accurately is stressed, and some planned and proposed programs are described.<> View full abstract»

    Two types of solar phenomena that affect the Earth-electromagnetic radiation from solar flares and the solar wind, which is fed by solar flares, coronal holes, and disappearing filaments-are described. Their effects on the ionosphere and magnetosphere are discussed. The impact on communication systems and the significance of this impact for utilities are addressed.<> View full abstract»

    The existing EHV/UHV installations and principal network configurations in Europe and the Soviet Union are described, focusing on the gap between them. It is argued that this gap can be closed by proven techniques, resulting in a completely interconnected Eurasian power grid. The possibilities for energy exchange that would result and the resulting advantages are discussed.<> View full abstract»

    Existing practical problems in the Lebanese electric power system are analyzed. Guidelines for future research and strategies for solving the operational problems which are now facing the system are provided. The problems are attributed to the socioeconomic situation in Lebanon after 14 years of war and the nature of the Lebanese system.<> View full abstract»
