GREEN: The Impact of “Green” Technology on System Reliability

Quanterion conducted a multi-year study of alternative energies under a task on its day-to-day operation of the Reliability Information Analysis Center (RIAC) Basic Center of Operations (BCO). This project focused on the reliability implications of “going green” because in order to be an effective alternative energy source, the candidate technology must be operationally available (combination of reliability and maintainability). Because the designs of the candidates are in many cases unproven, the study provided necessary information to enable the user to…  Read More
