IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES)Meeting Denver
During the last week of this month several hundred representatives from the electric power industry got together to discuss - among other things - electric power transmission. A number of working groups met to discuss standards, best practices, lessons learned and a number of things international utilities are doing to improve the efficiency, capacity, reliability and resiliency of the electric power grid. Many of CTC's colleagues were surprised to learn that over 30,000 km of ACCC conductor has - or is being - deployed to over 350 projects, worldwide.
During the week, CTC Global personnel attended a number of the "Overhead Lines Subcommittee" meetings. The Overhead Line Subcommittee "treat all matters of economical and technical design, theoretical and experimental performance, installation, and service operation of transmission and distribution conductors and overhead ground wires, their supporting structures, associated splicing and hardware components, and counterpoise and structure grounding."
The next IEEE PES Joint Technical Committee Meeting will be held January 10-14, 2016, at the Sheraton Memphis Downtown Hotel in Memphis, TN followed by the IEEE PES General Meeting to be held July 17-21, 2016, in Boston, MA
