    Northern Ireland Electricity has implemented direct load control of storage and water heating using radio teleswitches. This has been successful as it has been possible to co-ordinate load management with control of generation. It has necessitated changes in tariffs and working practices. The author outlines the innovative approaches taken to the opportunities of the new technology without ignorin... View full abstract»

    Superconductivity is, arguably, one phenomenon which, pending full development of the supporting technology, will revolutionise electrical power engineering to the same extent that fibre optics has already revolutionised telecommunications engineering. Considerable inroads have been made in Japan towards this end and an overview of this work is presented. The authors discuss superconducting applic... View full abstract»

    For pt.II see ibid., vol.6, no.6, p.291-7 (1992). A power system containing generation, transmission and distribution can be divided into the three hierarchical levels. The author discusses the third level, or more specifically to the distribution facilities and the general considerations of reliability cost and reliability worth. Consideration of the third hierarchical level would enable the effe... View full abstract»
