      • The War on Coal – Round 2

      • 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.

        Coal power generation in the U.S. stands at a crossroads.

      • 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.
