  • F series reducer for baldor motors power transmission is used in small space, slim design and ideal torque

    We are best suited for gearboxes with small space applications. A wide range of mounting positions and variants ensure that the gearbox meets the needs of a wide range of applications in complex installation conditions while maintaining performance. It also has the inherent advantages of our reducers: maintenance-free, long operating life and zero-wear gears with high fatigue strength baldor ...

  • A perspective overview of topological approaches for vulnerability analysis of power transmission grids

    Vulnerability analysis is a key issue in power systems since power transmission grids play a crucial role as a critical infrastructure. The power grid structure (number of nodes and lines, their connections, and their physical properties and operational constraints) is one of the main factors to assure power system security. Complex network theory as a promising topological approach for the ...

  • Integrated flexible parylene–based inductor with magnetic core for wireless power transmission system

    In this paper, flexible parylene–based MEMS inductors were designed, fabricated and analysed. A magnetic core was added in the centre of spiral coil in order to further enhance the performance of the inductor. FeNi alloy was chosen as the magnetic material due to its relatively high permeability. Parylene was used as substrate and insulation material due to its good bio–compatibility and ...

  • Optimal placement of FACTS controllers for maximising system loadability by PSO

    In this paper, a multi objective–based method has been suggested to enhance the power system loadability with optimal placement of flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) controllers using particle swarm optimisation (PSO) technique. The objective function is to maximise the system loadability subjected to maintaining the system security, integrity, and stability margins within limits by ...

  • Developments in power supply for the Southern Africa Power Pool 2011

    The Southern African Region has been experiencing power shortages due to increased demand with static power supply as a result of limited investment in both generation and transmission infrastructure across the region. This paper discusses how the power utilities in the region plan to cope with the power challenges and the measures that are planned for the future. Keywords: power generation, ...

  • Engineering of societal systems

    This paper proposes a methodology for conducting societal system engineering (SSE), the purpose of which is to ensure that the overall system meets the needs of the larger society as part of that society's infrastructure. Given the criticality of these systems, resiliency must be a major consideration in the design and operation of these systems. Resiliency in this context is not just the ability ...

  • Micro tuning of reactance by split TCSC on transmission line

    The TCSC is a form of FACTS compensator that improves power transfer capability by regulating transmission line reactance. Proper tuning of TCSC results in the variation of inductive/capacitive reactance along with resonance region. A difficulty is observed on tuning the TCSC device; large change in TCSC reactance at critical region (nearby resonance region) prohibits possible fine control of ...

  • An integrated H-infinity optimised fuzzy controller for UPFC in multimachine power systems

    A detailed mathematical model of a multimachine power system with unified power flow controller (UPFC) has been developed with a view to control the active and reactive power flow in the transmission line and to improve transient stability performance. Thus, initial voltage and angles of the series and shunt voltage sources are computed and used during transient stability studies. After the power ...

  • Investigation into the compatibility and effectiveness of a new mathematical online voltage sag index

    A new mathematical index is investigated in this paper which improves the power quality of a system through providing a tool for online voltage sag mitigation. The index is developed mathematically and applied on transmission and distribution networks. Furthermore, it is verified for its compatibility through the use of a tap changing transformer scheme. Two loading variation scenarios, ...

  • One hundred years of superconductivity: science, technology, products, profits and industry structure

    Superconductivity was empirically discovered 100 years ago. While scientific efforts were rewarded by no fewer than seven Nobel Prizes, there has been only one major application: MRI. The unfulfilled potential of other electrical and electronic applications resulted in the acquisition of the MRI division of Oxford Instruments by Siemens in 2002 and of IGC by Philips in 2006. In this paper, we ...

  • Market operations in future Indian restructured power system scenario

    Indian power industry is undergoing deregulation at a rapid rate. In this transition phase, it is now essential to design the most appropriate market and suitable pricing schemes for the power sector. In this article, a restructured electricity market model for future Indian power market is explained which is based on the institutional frame work – The Indian Electricity Act 2003. The activities ...

  • Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) controllers: an overview

    Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) controllers have been used in power systems since the 1970s with the objective of improving system dynamic performance. Due to the environmental, right-of-way, and cost problems in both bundled and unbundled power systems, many transmission lines have been forced to operate at almost their full capacities worldwide. FACTS controllers enhance the static ...
