    The World Bank estimates that roughly 1.6 billion people?nearly one out of every four people on the planet?do not have regular access to electricity. This form of energy poverty disproportionately afflicts people living in developing countries. For example, in sub-Saharan Africa excluding South Africa, 75 percent of households, some 550 million people, have no access to network electricity. In Sou... View full abstract»

    Self-healing is a critical aspect of the smart grid offering significant opportunity for reliability improvement. The average duration of outages on a system (SAIDI) can be cut in half with a self-healing network on a simple open-loop circuit with one sectionalizing point assuming the customers are evenly distributed and the fault rate is uniform. The goal of a self-healing network is to automatic... View full abstract»

    The beautiful horizon that is sketched by the idea of smart grid needs absolute effort of the smart human beings, specifically engineers in different areas of expertise and academia, to gradually get closer to what is dreamed as a system that can make smart decisions, eliminate pollutions and enhance reliability. In some places, the goal may be clear but the roadmap is not - such as interoperabili... View full abstract»

    Annually more than 2000 workers are admitted to hospital burn centers for extensive injuries caused by arc flash accidents. Arc flash incidents occur when unintended electric current flows through air, superheating the air, and causes an explosion. Arcing faults can be unintentionally initiated when workers drop a tool or wire, which provides a temporary path between two energized phases or phase ... View full abstract»

    Reliability benchmarking is here to stay. It does not matter whether a utility participates in benchmarking or not; they will be compared to benchmarking data regardless. Utilities may as well participate in benchmark surveys so that they can better understand how all of the various factors addressed in this article apply to each survey, helping to avoid improper interpretations by others.
