    The wire fencing surrounding the Albany and Hudson Fast Line, an early third-rail electric railway system, was said to be pig proof, mule high, and bull strong. According to, it was the wire fencing and a generous distribution of danger signs that kept the animals and humans at a safe distance from the live current. Local lore tells a different story about the safety of that ground-level electrifi... View full abstract»

    This article presents the harmonic analysis of transformer inrush currents in offshore power systems. Offshore production facilities interconnected by subsea cables are becoming increasingly common, either as new projects or as extensions to existing facilities. Interconnection via a subsea cable introduces a significant shunt capacitance to the source power system, giving rise to low natural or r... View full abstract»

    This article provides an analysis of the separation philosophy for a large steel mill with internal generation, which is transitioning from net power import to net power export after the addition of two new steam turbine generators. Separation from the utility in the case of a fault is determined by the operation of a protective relay system at the point of separation. The plant has a programmable... View full abstract»

    This article relates A NUMBER of generator tripping events that occurred within industrial plants in the hope that the lessons learned will help others to avoid the events described. These failures involved human errors and could have been avoided with proper generator protection or personnel training. In many cases, plant operators contributed to or caused the events, which were captured on oscil... View full abstract»

  • A Fuse-Blow Scheme

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3596 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A fuse-blow philosophy has been adopted by some utilities in an effort to decrease the number of momentary average interruption frequency index (MAIFI) seen by their customers. This practice has the inherent drawback that, by converting a temporary fault (e.g., lightning and animals) into a sustained interruption, they are in effect decreasing the reliability of their system [i.e., system average ...

    The merits of high-resistance grounding (HRG), its design considerations, and potential safety issues have been well documented in past electrical safety workshops. At the 2008 IEEE Electrical Safety Workshop, a challenge was put forth to discuss current and developing technologies that can resolve some of the potential safety issues in HRG systems. A field survey was conducted, and research was p... View full abstract»

  • The Dangers of Grounding Resistor Failure

    A resistance-grounded power system has a critical element that is often ignored-the neutral-grounding resistor (NGR). During a single-phase-to-ground fault, current flows from the transformer or generator winding through the faulted-phase conductor to the fault and to ground, returning to the source winding through the ground-return path and the NGR. The information presented here has shown that a... View full abstract»

    A novel analytical approach of reliability evaluation for a wind-diesel hybrid power system with a battery bank for power supply in the remote areas is proposed in this article. This approach is developed on the basis of the discrete wind-speed frame analysis of the Weibull wind-speed distribution. Using the wind-speed frame analysis, an analytical model of a wind-diesel hybrid system is developed... View full abstract»
