    This paper describes the innovative strategy employed by the Dominican Republic government to reduce supply costs and shortage costs while recoupling electricity investments in the country. The strategy is based on the demand responsiveness concept, which is espoused by the International Energy Agency via the demand response resource (DRR) project. The strategy has resulted in several important te... View full abstract»

    Many utilities are focusing their efforts on developing methods to assess the condition of equipment to extend the life of existing infrastructure. In many cases, these utilities focus their efforts on extending the life of power transformers and paper-insulated lead-covered (PILC) cables because these components offer the greatest payback. Extending the life of aging infrastructure requires the u... View full abstract»

    Eventually, every system will age to a sustainable point at which repair and replacement costs driven by advanced equipment age and deterioration from long service will remain constant thereafter. The good news is that equipment data, condition assessment, prioritization, and management focus can significantly reduce costs, extend lifetimes, and improve reliability. The bad news is that even when ... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the aging US electricity infrastructure, including generation, transmission and distribution. From the analysis in this article, there is no doubt that the U.S. electricity infrastructure is aging. Aging infrastructure has higher cost to operate and maintain and, more importantly, lower reliability. The lower reliability of aging infrastructure makes the physical system less r...

    This article discussed the issues around power system equipment aging, including concepts of equipment lifetime, approaches to estimating the mean life and age, Weibull and normal-distribution-based models to assess the end-of-life failure probability. The relationship between aging and maintenance activities, limitations of maintenance in extending equipment life, and determination of timing of r... View full abstract»

    A survey is offered for the various maintenance methods available for operators to preserve equipment health and extend equipment life. The methods range from the simplest, "follow-the-manual" types to detailed probabilistic approaches. To get the most out of maintenance, one has to select a mathematical model where optimization is possible. Another choice, of which operators are becoming more and... View full abstract»

    In the fist half of the last century, Mazda was a well-known trade name and trademark used and respected widely in the tungsten filament incandescent lamp industry. It was also a service mark indicating excellence and adherence to high design and manufacturing standards and its program contributed directly to industry standardization. This article describes what was one of the most successful adve... View full abstract»
