IEEE CTS CTCN and LM Nov 17,2022 meeting: INDEPENDENT FOR LIFE

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/328472

When you eventually retire, do you want to age independently in your own home and neighborhood? Staying home and aging in place is most people's preference, but most American housing and communities are not adapted to the needs of older people. And with the fastest population growth among people over 65, finding solutions for successful aging is important, not just for individual families, but for our whole society. This talk covers a wide range of smart solutions, including adapting technology, remodeling current housing, building new homes for accessibility and safety, retrofitting existing neighborhoods to add needed services and amenities, and planning new communities that work well for people of all ages. Speaker(s): Wayne Caswell, Agenda: 6:00 to 6:10 PM - Open for participants to enter and network. 6:10 to 6:20 PM - IEEE LM and CTCN Business meeting and to introduce speaker. 6:20 to 7:30 PM - Formal Program and Q&A.

IEEE Denver PES/IAS Chapter NOVEMBER 2022 Meeting

Room: Upstairs Meeting Room, Bldg: The Original Brooklyn's, 2644 W Colfax Ave, Denver, Colorado, United States, 80204

Schedule 6:00 – Check-in and Networking 6:30 – Dinner Served 7:00 – Presentation 8:00 – Adjourn Troubleshooting 5 MW mobile gas turbines Summary: End users complained of voltage fluctuations from 5 MW mobile gas turbines. Initial investigations discovered arc marks and corroded connections in the PT bushings. This type of corrosion is not common across several hundred similar installations used for the past 10 years. During review of the original damaged PTs engineers postulated that ferroresonance could potentially be a root cause of voltage fluctuations on the original configuration. During testing, ferroresonant voltage waveforms were captured by a power quality meter at the secondary of the wye PTs feeding the voltage regulator following a breaker close onto unloaded switchgear. These waveforms were not present during steady state operation nor were they captured during every breaker close operation. Each of the captured ferroresonant events were accompanied by high speed over voltage spikes that resembled arcing. This report summarizes the results of an independent, outside review commissioned to further investigate the ferroresonance issue and possible root cause of the arcing damage observed in the PT connections.
