        I receive a free subscription to Power Engineering, and since I am not a typical reader (I'm a high school teacher), I wanted to thank PennWell for this and describe how I am using the magazine.

      • The War on Coal – Round 2

        During his first four-year term, President Barack Obama's policies compelled power producers to plan the retirement of 15 percent of the nation's coal-fired generation capacity and killed the scope for building new capacity fired by coal.

      • Mathematical Properties of the Clean Air Act

        Politics are fickle. Regardless of which candidate won the 2012 presidential election (I'm writing this at the end of September, so I don't know the winner yet.), there will be change in how electric generation emissions are regulated and how utility companies are treated by the EPA.

      • The Pathway to Commercializing CCS

        Coal power generation in the U.S. stands at a crossroads. Abundant low-cost natural gas, federal environmental requirements and uncertainty over future regulation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are driving the closure of older, less-efficient coal units and cancellation of planned investments in new coal generation capacity.

      • Visiting LG&E's Newest Power Plant

        About 50 miles northeast of Louisville, Ky., in a rural district on about 2,200 acres along the banks of the Ohio River is the Trimble County power station.

    • What Works

      • Playing Hard to Get

        The pursuit of non-conventional sources of oil and gas requires that valves, bearings and other components be able to withstand the highly abrasive materials they process.

      • Arc flash protection system

        The ABB Low Voltage Products division has released TVOC-2, a new generation of its proprietary Arc Guard System that protects electrical equipment from dangerous electrical arc flashes.
