Sub Sea Electric Power Transmission Techniques from DC to AC Posted

  In the past decade, the significant improvements in high speed, high voltage transistor technology enabled the design of more sophisticated sub sea electrical power transmission systems. This is the case of the power-electronics-based single wire DC and high-frequency AC transmission systems that appeared as alternatives to the traditional three phase transmission systems. Although such… Read more »

Regulating energy reserves; a performance assessment Posted

  Michael Wrinch and Mark Phillips-Dubois both of Hedgehog, co-authored a recently published technical report for the National Research Council of Canada and the Alberta Electric System Operator. This report presented findings from their study of the regulating reserves in Alberta. ┬áThe objective was to assess the potential for fast-acting energy storage such as batteries,… Read more »
