|Many Thanks to Gabe
Thank you to Gabe Paoletti, P.E., of
Eaton Engineering Services and Solutions, who provided
us insight into world of hidden partial discharges.
He helped us understand the little recognized economic
impact of ignoring this power loss in our systems and
showed us that proper instrumentation goes a long way
in identifying problems before system failure. We really
appreciate him making an extra effort to be at our
Certificates. Mike Noth will be emailing
certificates to all attendees to January's meeting
that checked "yes"
on the sign in sheet. You may also pick up your CE certificate
at February's meeting.
Some attendees of our meetings have not been
receiving their electronic copy of the IEEE Central Texas
Section Newsletter, The
Analog. If you are an IEEE member, your subscription
is automatic to your profile on record at IEEE. IF you
are not a member, you may subscribe. Details are provided
at the Analog Webpage.
Be advised that
there is not a lot of traffic on this list intentionally. The
list manager tries to keep it below 3 emails a month
- The Analog, the mid-month reminder,
and maybe an emergency announcement, but we prefer 2
emails a month.
