Subject:   Power Transmission

Transmission Infrastructure Series [pdf]


A series of four papers exploring critical transmission
infrastructure issues are presented on this site. Ironically, the
papers which point out weaknesses in the electric grid and argue for
expanding the transmission system, were published before the
blackout of August 14, 2003 that affected millions of people in the
northeastern United States and Canada. Their messages are now quite
clear; one suggests that the US power grid is overburdened, while
another "examines the impact of transmission congestion on
electricity consumers, as well as how transmission constraints
jeopardize system reliability." The papers were published for the
Edison Electric Institute, which maintains many other resources on
its Web site.
