Electric Transportation Energy Supply Systems

1 septembre 2020
Transportation systems are among the largest consumers of fossil fuels, after electric power generation, in many jurisdictions. These systems include passenger vehicles, busses and urban light rail systems, trucks for local delivery and long-distance transport of merchandise, and diesel-powered railway systems. Transportation electrification is therefore one of the important approaches to achieve decarbonization of the economy, and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and to reduce the global consumption and reliance on fossil fuels.Read More

Dielectric Testing of HVDC gas-insulated systems Fundamentals for a future standard

1 septembre 2020
Rapid, worldwide implementation of electrical power generation from renewable sources, often located at great distances from urban and industrial consumers, has led to the need for new, low loss, long-distance transmission systems. A result of this trend is that development of DC transmission technologies is progressing rapidly. As a part of this, gas-insulated DC transmission lines (DC GIL) and gas-insulated DC substations stations (DC GIS) are of particular interest due to their space-saving advantages. Testing of these systems poses unique challenges and forms the basis for a reliable service performance. Read More
