Our Heartfelt Thanks to Bill Kaewert

We thank B ill Kaewert, President & Chief Technical Officer, Stored Energy Systems LLC (SENS) for his helpful presentation that made it clear to us why we need to Improve Genset Availability by Detecting Bad Batteries Early. From the presentation it was clear that the cost of battery monitoring is small compared to a major outage that might happen if bad battery cells are not detected and fixed early. We would all do well to take battery risk into account when specifying back up power systems.


Continuing Education

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.


Analog Newsletter

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.
