Electrical transients are momentary bursts of energy induced upon power, data, or communication lines. They are characterized by extremely high voltages that drive tremendous amounts of current into an electrical circuit for a few millionths, up to a few thousandths, [...]
Solar farms are wide-open unobstructed areas of conductive material. It’s no surprise that they are highly susceptible to lightning strikes. Direct strikes may be relatively rare, depending upon a facility’s size and location, so most damage is usually sustained [...]
The conversion is well under way in many municipalities to convert roadway lighting to solid-state LED streetlight technology. The city of Asheville North Carolina has partnered with Duke Energy Progress to replace traditional 175- and 400-watt mercury vapor and 250-watt high-pressure sodium streetlights with LED luminaires.
