“We're telling America's scientists and engineers that if they assemble teams of the best minds in their fields, and focus on the hardest problems in clean energy, we'll fund the Apollo Projects of our time. We need to get behind this innovation. And to help pay for it, I'm asking Congress to eliminate the billions in taxpayer dollars we currently give to oil companies. I don't know if you've noticed, but they're doing just fine on their own. So instead of subsidizing yesterday's energy, let's invest in tomorrow's.
Now, clean energy breakthroughs will only translate into clean energy jobs if businesses know there will be a market for what they're selling. So tonight, I challenge you to join me in setting a new goal: by 2035, 80% of America's electricity will come from clean energy sources. Some folks want wind and solar. Others want nuclear, clean coal, and natural gas. To meet this goal, we will need them all--¿ and I urge Democrats and Republicans to work together to make it happen.

Short circuit analysis analyzes the power flow after a fault occurs in a power network. The faults may be three-phase short circuit, one-phase grounded, two-phase short circuit, two-phase grounded, one-phase break, two-phase break or complex faults.
AC power flow model is a model used in electrical engineering to analyze power grids. It provides a nonlinear system which describes the energy flow through each transmission line. Due to nonlinearity, in many cases the analysis of large network via AC power flow model is not feasible, and a linear (but less accurate) DC power flow model is used instead. Both of those models are very crude approximations to reality, but are accepted practice in transmission engineering.

A combination of monsters. Maybe some of Duke’s pro-solar views will seep into Progress’s FL franchise.

Includes Case Studies of 27 Utility REPs
This report analyzes how utilities are incorporating renewable energy into their mix, and how they are using of new government incentives to do so. No less than 28 states have established a renewable portfolio standard, requiring electric utilities to get some part of their power from renewable energy sources.
This architecture has legs. Fewer points of failure and network-ready.
