Aging Power Delivery Infrastructures, 2nd Edition- for free

Power

Between1994 and 2001, we devoted a great deal of personal and professional effort to the problem of aging power supply infrastructures and possible solutions. We conducted our own research and testing. Innovative, proven, and in some cases unproven technologies were gathered from around the world, carefully researched and vetted. And we repeated the tests until we were certain of what worked, what didn’t, and why. The first edition (2001) summarizes what we learned.

Like the first edition, this second edition is a reference and commentary on aging power supply systems, the problems they cause, and the technical and managerial approaches power system owners can take to manage them. Electricity is unique among major utilities in that the quality and usability of its products are determined entirely by the characteristics of the systems that supply them, not by the way they are manufactured.

The aging of the U.S. electric supply system potentially means poor power quality, frequent and pro longed service interruptions, and frustrating challenges for the customers, owners, and employees of the utilities and large heavy industries that depend on these systems. The first edition, published in 2001, contained all the information we knew at the time about the aging of the power supply system. In early 1994, it became clear for the first time that the aging of the electric supply system throughout the United States was a significant and serious problem with the potential to threaten the entire industry.

About the Book

Like the first edition, this second edition is a reference and commentary on aging power supply systems, the problems they cause, and the technical and managerial approaches power system owners can take to manage them.

Electric power is unique among major utilities in that the quality and usability of its product is determined entirely by the characteristics of the system that supplies it, not by the way it is manufactured. The aging of the U.S. electric power delivery system potentially means poor power quality, frequent and lengthy service interruptions, and frustrating challenges for the customers, owners, and employees of the utilities and large heavy industries that rely on these systems.

The book consists of five chapters. First, Chapters 1through 17 present an “executive summary” of the problem and its major impacts, the Sustainable Point Approach, effective practical solutions, and their real-world limitations and consequences.
