Transient Analysis of Power Transformers Using Finite Element Method

A transformer relies on electromagnetic induction through coils to transfer electric energy between two or more circuits. Varying current in the transformer’s primary winding creates varying magnetic flux in the core, which produces varying electromotive force (EMF) or voltage in the...


ARCOS Callout and Scheduling Solutions

Using the ARCOS Callout and Scheduling solutions, GVEA’s supervisors, dispatchers and line workers, among others, will be able to plan, launch and track the status of automated, after-hours calls for emergency crews from their desktops, tablets and smartphones. GVEA will begin rolling out the...

Enhance Utlity Fleet Tools & Best Practices

Fleet managers working at electric utilities know that for crews to be successful on any jobsite, they need to have access to tools that will help them work safer, smarter, more efficiently and more profitably. In the electric utility industry, a utility truck, whether an aerial device, such as a...

WORKING IN THE THIRD DIMENSION

Typically, engineering consulting firms have been designing substations using two-dimensional computer aided design software (CAD) since the 1970s. This common technique produces two-dimensional drawings that are completed individually by designers. Any change to the design requires the designer to...

Reducing Nuisance Alarm Rates from On-Site Security Systems

The physical security of electrical generation, transmission, and distribution sites is critical. The potential risks of a security failure are clear: disruption to service, damage to equipment, and intruder fatalities.To prevent costly incidents and meet the National Electrical Reliability...

Computer Simulation of Grounding Applications

Computer simulation of grounding applications are important for power generation and distribution. INTEGRATED’s proprietary Boundary Element Method (BEM) solver simulates various types of grounding scenarios very efficiently, especially in the HVDC domain of power/energy industries and in applications involving open regions for electromagnetic field computations.

Below is a case, where INTEGRATED’s COULOMB has been used to simulate a HVDC grounding system. The model consists of 648 volumes, which have been assigned specific conductivities....
