    In the traditional electricity grid, there are four major components: power generation, power transmission, power distribution, and grid operation. Power generation usually consists of numerous types of generation plants, such as fossil-fuel power plants and nuclear power plants. The generated electricity is fed into the transmission network, which primarily consists of high-voltage (HV) or extra-... View full abstract»

    Smart grid-related blogs, newsletters, and conferences have endured numerous debates and discussions around the issue of whether or not the smart grid integrated correctly. While most debates focus on approach, methodology, and the sequence of what to be done, there is insufficient discussion about actually meant by "smart grid integration." This article attempts to present a holistic view of inte... View full abstract»

    Disasters, whether natural or man-made, compromise the quality of life for all involved. In such situations, expeditious recovery activities are deemed imperative and irreplaceable for the restoration of normalcy. However, recovery activities rely heavily on the critical infrastructures that supply basic needs like electricity, water, information, and transportation. When disasters strike, it is l...

    The integrity of large-scale interconnected power grids may break down under system disturbances. The postdisturbance system may even turn out to cause a major blackout. To mitigate the undesired impacts of system disturbances, special protection systems (SPSs), also known as remedial action schemes (RASs), are widely used in modern power grids to safeguard their integrity.

    We have described a utility-scale, grid-friendly PV power plant that incorporates advanced capabilities essential to supporting grid stability and reliability. It includes features such as voltage regulation, active power controls, ramp-rate controls, fault ride through, and frequency control. These capabilities provide the intrinsic benefits of reliable plant operation in the grid, which in turn ... View full abstract»

    This article presents an operational framework that can implement asset management concepts for distribution systems. This operational framework should align well with distribution system goals (which include securing the rights of stakeholders). To this end, we first discuss who the distribution stakeholders are and methods of securing their rights. After describing the asset management implement... View full abstract»

    Recently, I drove out the Tyler Street Extension in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, to view the ongoing demolition of Building 9 in the former General Electric Company (GE) plant. Building 9 once had been a world-renowned center of high-voltage and lightning research. It was named the GE High Voltage Laboratory and was commonly referred to as ?The Lab.? View full abstract»
