    The relevant characteristic for electric motors when comparing the energy consumption of different-besides the efficiency class-is the numerical value of the nominal efficiency. Therefore clear definitions, methods for proving them and prescribed tolerances are of special importance. However, as this article explains, the demands and expectations made by the draft standard IEC 61972/CDV have not b... View full abstract»

    Condition monitoring of power transformers is a significant issue for electrical utilities. Research has demonstrated the efficacy of employing ultra high frequency measurement of partial discharge in the monitoring of transformers. A condition monitoring architecture is described that supports the capture and interpretation of diagnostic data, and provides engineers with meaningful diagnostic adv... View full abstract»

    Traditional SCADA systems for electricity utilities rely on data transmission over fixed analogue circuits and modems. This method has been satisfactory over the years but it is becoming obsolete and unsuited to today's requirements. The use of TCP/IP technology can overcome the limitations of analogue communications, allow the network to be more flexible in terms of expansion and reconfiguration,... View full abstract»
