Abstract- Power System Protection coordination and associated reliability and cyber security standards

Power System is the key cog in the wheels of economy. Correct operation of Power System Protection is key to the safety of operating personnel, and healthy operation of the consumer industry and emergency services. An unintended mal operation, also named as misoperation could lead to severe outage leading to disruption of normal life. One such outage happened in August of 2003, leading to a massive blackout, spreading to the entire east coast USA and part of Canada, affecting more than 50 million people and 70,000 Mega Watts of load. This outage led to a massive post outage analysis by federal agencies and the outcome was a 2005 Federal Energy Policy Act and enforcement of 83 reliability and Critical Infrastructure Protection standards in 2007, growing to 118 mandatory standards to-date, leading to several hundred requirements.

The presentation walks you through the importance of Power system protection, key Power System Protection elements, and importance of System Protection Coordination. It also gives a brief history about the 2003 outage, its outcome and the key Reliability and Cyber Security standards enforced by NERC/FERC.

Registration site is:

http://clastech2015.eventbrite.com

What are some of the technical topics that will be presented at this meeting, all by well qualified
experts in their field? See below the short list of the announced topics, in which some “guesses”
on the anticipated detailed subjects to be covered are added in parenthesis.

  • Satellite communication with In-Flight connectivity (Can we “talk” to our satellite? Can we
    track our satellite? Can we avoid near–encounters with other satellites in near-by orbits?)
  • End-to-end antenna and associated feed network design (a tool for antenna system engineers?)
  • Inflatable and transportable antennas (will they be wearable too?)
  • 5G / test and measurement viewpoints (How much more data connectivity and transfer can we pack
    into the next generation of smartphones? How will we verify this data connectivity?)
  • Terahertz radar for distant TBD through-clothes imaging (Are these better that Homeland
    Security airport scanners? How much?)
  • Monolithic phased array: RF out to optical frequencies (Laser frequencies, anyone?)
  • GaN power amplifiers for higher and higher frequencies (70 GHz and beyond, with wider
    bandwidths for signal transmission and modulation to boot)
  • In-Situ antenna measurements using National Instrument / AWR design tool suite (How effective
    are your lab measurements?)
  • Demonstration of electromagnetic analysis using ANSYS HFSS commercial programs
  • Electronic packaging (or, can we make a device that works within a form-factored package?)

Yes, you as an attendee will have to pick and choose what sessions to attend; there are three
simultaneous tracks. Plan for an interesting and intense day of technology updates.

Posts restored, just not all in correct chronological order

May 9, 2015 in Uncategorized by tsnyderpe

However, upon further investigation only one was actually out of order and always the first post.  By removing it from “posted” to “Under Review” all the rest appear to be in the correct order.

The one ‘removed’ is: “THE IEEE CONSULTANTS NETWORK INVITES YOU TO THE JANUARY 25th MEETING”

Site rebuild on May 6, 2015

May 7, 2015 in Buenaventura Section, Central Coast Section, China Lake/Bakersfield Section, Coastal Los Angeles Section, Cross posts, Foothill Section, Metro Los Angeles, Orange County Section, San Diego Section, San Fernando Valley Section by tsnyderpe

Due to an error on may part I needed to rebuild the site.  I’ve been able to restore everything but the posts under the “HOME” tab.  The posts still exist and I am researching how to restore them.

 

Thank you for your patience,

Our Energy Dilemma, and An Audacious Solution

September 11, 2014 in Buenaventura Section, Central Coast Section, China Lake/Bakersfield Section, Coastal Los Angeles Section, Education, Foothill Section, LACCN, Metro Los Angeles, OCCN, Orange County Section, San Diego Section, San Fernando Valley Section by tsnyderpe

Co-sponsored by Orange County and Los Angeles County Consultants Networks

Dr. Goodman will explain how humans are unique animals in their use of energy. How we really need to use a lot of energy to thrive, and yet–getting most of that energy as we now do by burning something–we are rapidly making the Earth uninhabitable for humans.

This is our dilemma: How to get all the energy we need without killing ourselves in the process. Dr. Goodman will then describe briefly a very audacious solution that not only gives us all the energy we could possibly use and at a cost far smaller than what we now are paying, it will also let us cure our global climate problem, and much more. If we choose this path we’ll face a wondrous array of engineering challenges along the way, and reap enormous benefits at the end. Do any of you wish for space travel for everyone? That’s included as well.

Dr. Goodman will explain how humans are unique animals in their use of energy. How we really need to use a lot of energy to thrive, and yet–getting most of that energy as we now do by burning something–we are rapidly making the Earth uninhabitable for humans. This is our dilemma: How to get all the energy we need without killing ourselves in the process. Dr. Goodman will then describe briefly a very audacious solution that not only gives us all the energy we could possibly use and at a cost far smaller than what we now are paying, it will also let us cure our global climate problem, and much more. If we choose this path we’ll face a wondrous array of engineering challenges along the way, and reap enormous benefits at the end. Do any of you wish for space travel for everyone? That’s included as well.
