This report examines wireless sensors that can be deployed cost-effectively at nuclear plant switchyards to support condition-based maintenance.
This report discusses data collection for the use of machine learning for locating utility assets, assessing storm damage, and identifying critical changes in distribution grids.
Nuclear plants are evaluating the potential for a second license renewal, which would allow for operation to 80 years. This report provides a plan to extend the integrated surveillance program for a second license renewal.
This reference book provides transmission companies with comprehensive guidance on designing, building, operating, and extending the life of HVDC transmission systems.
Collecting acoustic electromagnetic signals emitted from power plant components offers a potentially more cost-effective approach to detecting early signs of failure relative to the use of sensors embedded in components. This report evaluates acoustic and electromagnetic data collected from a synchronous generator and presents methods for detecting different faults.
In nuclear plants, wireless equipment can improve worker efficiency, but plant operators require assurance that these systems will not impact equipment operation. This research examines the field strengths generated by wireless devices.
Commonly known in the electric power industry as “the Green Book,” this reference book covers the principles for planning, design, manufacture, installation design, installation, testing, operation, and maintenance of underground transmission cable systems.
This report summarizes the status of the “Connected Home” space, which encompasses hardware and software for monitoring and controlling residential end-use devices. It explores how utilities can obtain value from orchestration of multiple devices in houses.
This newsletter focuses on communications technologies with potential for major impacts on the electric power industry. This issue examines developments in Fifth Generation (5G) mobile wireless technologies.
This report describes potential methods to improve collision risk assessment tools for effective siting of wind turbines, focusing on the golden eagle. The recommendations can be applied to other bird and bat species of concern.
This brochure discusses highlights from EPRI’s first annual Renewables Operations and Maintenance Innovation Workshop, which facilitated knowledge sharing among wind and solar asset owners and operators while identifying collaborative research opportunities.
This is a brief description of the Eel Passage Research Center, which conducts research to support safe downstream passage of eels at operating hydroelectric plants.
