Technical Note from Dr. Mel Giberson, P.E. - TRI President
Although deregulating power has reduced generating costs, the recent major power outages in North America confirms that the power grid reliability has been compromised. In response, generating plants should be:
- Implementing measures to protect against damage during such an outage
- Re-engineering for faster restarts with less complications
