    The electrical distribution system will be undergoing a major evolution over the next decade. The increasing use of renew able generation, the implementation of electric vehicle charging, the installation of energy storage devices, and changes in the character of customer loads will alter the way the distribution system is designed and controlled. Increased attention needs to be paid to securing t... View full abstract»

    The most significant challenge in distribution management associated with the so called “smart grid” is that the distribution system becomes an active system-with distributed generation, smart customer loads, electric vehicle charging, smart inverters, distributed storage, and so on. The challenge of an active distribution system affects both the planning functions and the real-time ... View full abstract»

    Most students of world War II are aware of the thousands of barrage balloons that Britain employed throughout the war to help protect cities, ports, and other important targets from low-flying Luftwaffe dive bombers and fighters. These large gas balloons measured about 64 ft (19.5 m) long by 34 ft (10.4 m) in diameter and were tethered to the ground by steel cables attached to winches and rose to ... View full abstract»

    In the “History” column by Gerhard Neidhofer in [1], due to a production error, the number 1p25 is incorrect in the following sentence: “The Thomson-Houston Company [later the General Electric Company (General Electric) after its merger with the Edison General Electric Company] preferred 15,000 alternations/min, corresponding to 1p25 cycles/s.” The correct number is 125...

    Power distribution systems are the lowest end of power systems and thus are nearest to the customers. It is estimated that the capital invested in power distribution systems worldwide is 40% of the total investment in power systems. Of the remaining 60%, generation accounts for 40% and transmission accounts for 20%. View full abstract»
