    • Rural Broadband Becoming More Of A Reality

      With the increasing role of renewables, particularly wind and solar, in providing generation on the nation’s electric grid, there is concern among some that not enough attention is being paid to the continuing role of traditional baseload generation, primarily coal and nuclear, in ensuring the reliability and resilience of the grid…

    • Ratemaking and Rate Structure - New Paradigms, a Three Part Series

      Until about a decade ago, utility ratemaking and the resulting rate structures were determined in a very traditional manner and tended to be based on very traditional needs that utilities had, which had essentially been the same for decades. These included: the increasing costs of fuel (coal, natural gas, etc.); overall operational cost increases; cost of living wage increases and benefits for employees; the cost of recurring system upgrades; the cost of repairs on non-working equipment; the cost of undergrounding certain parts of the infrastructure to eliminate problems associated with poles and lines; and the cost of expanding the utility’s infrastructure to new areas that needed power, as the result of new subdivisions, urban sprawl, etc.

    • “Overlooking Relay Coordination Across Organizations, A Cause For Alarm – Part 2 In A Four-part Series on Protection Engineering”

      In part one of our series we discussed the risk of not updating your relaying system. The effectiveness of any type of ground overcurrent relaying is dependent on having a properly functioning substation ground grid, which will assist in providing a current path from the fault back to the substation. If a high-resistive ground fault occurs on YOUR system, will YOUR breakers or reclosers trip?

      In part two, we discuss relay coordination and the communication that must take place to avoid costly mishaps…
