The IEEE Power & Energy Society will be holding a series of Power Industry Education courses in Las Vegas in December. These courses are called “Plain Talk About the Electric Power Industry,” and are a 3-day series of courses targeted to professionals who work in or with the industry. More information can be found at the event webpage.
David L. Wilson of McLaren Inc will present at the IEEE dinner meeting on October 20th, at Conley’s Restaurant.
The most critical component of a protection, control, and monitoring system is the auxiliary DC control power system. Failure of the DC control power can render fault detection devices unable to detect faults, breakers unable to trip for faults, local and remote indication to become inoperable, etc. The auxiliary DC control power system consists of the battery, battery charger, distribution system, switching and protective devices, and any monitoring equipment. Proper sizing, design, and maintenance of the components that make up the auxiliary DC control system are required. Many references for stationary battery system design address only a specific battery technology making it difficult to compare different types of batteries for their overall suitability to substation application. Also, most references do not address the particular requirements of the electrical substation environment and duty cycle. This presentation provides an overall review of things to consider in designing the auxiliary DC control power system for an electrical substation.
David L. Wilson received his B.S. degree from Washington State University in 1978. He has diverse experience in the fields of energy R&D, aerospace, medical and commercial electronics manufacturing and electrical power system and component sales. He is co-owner of McLaren Inc., a manufacturers’ representative firm, with technical sales responsibilities for (15) manufacturers including Storage Battery Systems and Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories Inc. He has (17) years experience selling and advising on utility battery system applications.
Time: Social time will start at 5:30 p.m. and the Dinner will start at 6:30 p.m.

Our ITT and EWU students joined together for a Comcast field trip. Comcast showed their hospitality, gave us a valuable presentation and showed their facilities where voice, video and data are streaming across high-speed links later branching into subsribers’ endpoints.
I was very happy to see that students had asked many questions.
Again, thank you Comcast for your hospitality and time !

ITT Student Branch got an official approval from the IEEE Headquarters . The Student Branch already had elections; now they are working on the calendar. We had one guest speaker, Ed Mitchell, who talked to students about career development practices in a technical field. Thank you Ed for your mentoring and support. Come to see us at ITT Tech in Spokane!
