Title: National power survey: energy distribution research. The report and recommendations of the Task Force on energy distribution research to the Technical Advisory Committee on Research and Development

Abstract

The Task Force on Energy Distribution Research recommends research and development programs in the following areas: electrical power system development and growth; ac overhead transmission; underground transmission; dc systems; systems security and control; distribution; station equipment; test facilities; unconventional electric transmission; and hydrogen transmission. These topics are discussed and each contains a brief review of the most advanced features of the technology now in service, the needs that must be met by more advanced technology in the future, research and development that must be undertaken to achieve these objectives, and recommendations for specific research and development programs. The history of the electrical utility industry in the United States is dominated by a very rapid expansion in energy output. Between 1948 and 1973, the national electrical energy output increased from 300 x 10/sup 6/ MWh to almost 2000 x 10/sup 6/ MWh.
