Safety and Reliability: Part 1 of A New Standard

The Standard for Switches and Transformers Has Evolved: “Standard” Switches and Transformers Are Not the Standard Anymore

Once upon a time the Westinghouse Load Interrupter (WLI) was the standard medium voltage switch in the industry. It is used indoors and outdoors and typically found on the primary side of a unit substation transformer. There are many versions of this switch made by a variety of manufacturers. here are some basics:

The load interrupter takes up about

Integrated Energy Management With EMR Associates

Integrated Energy Management With EMR Associates

Integrated energy management involves the planning and operation of energy production and energy consumption. The objectives of this discipline are resource conservation, climate protection, and cost savings, while it also ensures that there is permanent access to the energy needed at the facility. When energy efficiency is realized, assets will be utilized much more effectively. Integrated energy management provides a clear and accurate view of the facility, allowing the owner to make informed and timely decisions

The Need for Elgin Power Solutions
The modern grid is becoming more robust. Industrial companies and their facility engineers are working to maintain better voltage stability at their sites. One area of concern surrounds issues that are caused by higher ground fault currents. Many of these issues are dangerous.

Switchgear can be at risk. When it’s design is underrated, it may not be able to survive higher fault currents. The switchgear can fail, and it will need

How to Become More Environmentally Friendly Using Eaton's Variable Voltage Transformer

How to Become More Environmentally Friendly Using Eaton’s Variable Voltage Transformer

One of the greatest challenges facing engineers and scientists is to find new sources of energy without causing irreparable damage to the environment. The research is expensive and time-intensive, but every breakthrough helps us all. Eaton hopes to assist oil exploration and production companies with their discoveries using Thermal Assisted Gravity Drainage (TAGD) with their variable voltage transformers for a cost-effective, environmentally-safe approach to oil shale and bitumen recovery.

According to Eaton’s newsletter: “TAGD is an
