    This paper looks at the similarities between the August 14, 2003 blackout and the Western System collapse of 1996. It was shown that the August 14 collapse resulted from system overloading that led to voltage deterioration in the system and consequently a "fast" collapse, similar to the July 2, 1996 collapse.

    It is commonly thought that the average utility distribution system is 50 to 80% utilized on peak. Today, distribution utilization can only be measured at the distribution substation, and the utilization downstream of the substation is usually unknown. Optimizing the use of distribution assets and systems requires having accurate loading information for any weather scenario and at any point on the... View full abstract»

    This article discusses the need to redesign engineering education in the US. The author emphasizes that the prime directive of engineering education must be subject integration. The solution is not merely teaching more math and science, or experimenting with the curricula to remove this suite of subjects and add that series of topics. It should be about teaching tomorrow's engineers how to make to... View full abstract»
