    ASSET MANAGEMENT IS MORE important than ever for electric utilities. Many power systems have assets that are aging, investment is limited, and at the same time we are introducing new technologies on the grid that must be maintained as part of overall asset management systems. Investment in new monitoring and communications infrastructure (often referred to as the smart grid) is opening new opportu... View full abstract»

    North America has a significant underground electric distribution system that is nearing the end of its design and service life. The cost of global replacement of aging underground facilities is prohibitive. Consequently, utilities require an enterprise approach to managing underground power cable systems (cables, joints, and terminations) in order to develop prudent investment and maintenance pra...
