In many countries, the use of underground transmission systems is growing, and circuit lengths are increasing. Intended for cable and protection engineers, this report discusses various aspects of protecting these systems.
This report identifies metrics appropriate for benchmarking utility sustainability performance. Since 2014, this list of metrics has been refined annually in collaboration with EPRI’s Energy Sustainability Interest Group.
Typically, nuclear plant operators apply noble metals to reactor components annually to mitigate cracking. This research examines the feasibility of continuous injection of noble metals.
While nuclear plants have historically provided baseload power, many are exploring or practicing flexible operations today. This study evaluates the potential impacts of flexible operations on radiation fields in pressurized water reactors.
Analysis of oil used for lubrication in power plants is labor-intensive, involving sample collection and lab tests. This research examined the potential to implement online oil sensors to collect and process real-time data for more accurate component health.
This new research project is examining tools and metrics available for evaluating environmental justice, and is collecting utility experiences to enable knowledge transfer.
This study evaluates nuclear plant operating experiences with pipe wall thinning due to erosion.
Irradiation assisted stress corrosion cracking is a form of degradation that can cause component failures in nuclear power plants. This research examines the factors driving this degradation and mitigation techniques.
Transmission system operators increasingly face high operating voltages. This report discusses potential adverse impacts associated with sustained elevated voltage, related standards, and research needs.
Organizations that report solar and wind power capital costs are rarely in agreement. By examining these organizations’ disparate data collection and modeling approaches, this report aims to inform users of cost data.
Filming amines are used for corrosion protection in the steam/water cycles of fossil power plants. This study evaluated the effectiveness of four methods used to measure the concentration of filming amines in the steam/water cycle.
This laboratory study examined the geotechnical properties of fly ash and flue gas desulfurization solids, including gradation, specific gravity, plasticity, and shear strength.
