  • This article shows how the use of incremental transfer capability curves can be beneficial toward ensuring the secure and efficient operation of a power transmission system. Explains that when a rescheduling of power transfers is needed to relieve overloading problems, the curves can be used to change the transfers by a precise amount in the most effective manner. Points out that the curves are constructed on the assumption that a transmission system behaves in a linear fashion. Notes that use of the graphs enables the determination of actual simultaneous multidirectional transfer capabilities, which provides the ability to maximize the utilizationmore » of the available transmission margin without jeopardizing the security of the system.« less
  • The paper briefly describes the nuclear reactor facilities at Sandia Laboratories which are used for simulating nuclear weapon produced neutron environments. These reactor facilities are used principally in support of continuing R and D programs for the Department of Energy/Office of Military Application (DOE/OMA) in studying the effects of radiation on nuclear weapon systems and components. As such, the reactors are available to DOE and DOD agencies and their contractors responsible for the radiation hardening of advanced nuclear weapon systems. Emphasis is placed upon two new reactor simulation sources; the Sandia Pulse Reactor-III (SPR-III) Facility which enhances the neutron exposuremore » volume capabilities over those presently available with the existing SPR-II Facility, and the Upgraded Annular Core Pulse Reactor (ACPR) Facility which enhances the neutron exposure capabilities over those of the former ACPR Facility.« less
