A couple of weeks earlier, I have noticed that I have shed
body weight. I was really hoping to lose a lot of this ever since I was a kid.
Unfortunately, I was not able to purchase clothes that will look good on my new
size. Therefore, while trying good clothes one morning, I had a bit of utter
frustration because apparently, my fashion sucked and I looked like an old
Right then and there, I totally decided that it was about
right time to go on a shopping and buy the clothes that will really fit me.
Now, we’re talking about the whole shebang of shopping for clothes: skirts,
dresses, dress pants, jeans, capris, tops, and even shoes. I also decided to
add some new clothes sizes that I was not able to wear since high school.
Because of this, I love the idea of having expanded wardrobe in my closet.
With this in mind, the NEMA plastic enclosures available in
some of the enclosure manufacturing companies will make you feel that you are
going to totally love their expanded product line. Like my new wardrobe, there
are NEMA enclosures that were just recently added on some of the companies’
product portfolios and these are now available in smaller sizes. It is now
being pared down in sizes and there was a trim of 2.52” x 2.28” x 1.38”. They
are widely available across all three NEMA product lines.
Several customers have lead to believe that they have
already requested a smaller NEMA enclosure and they are totally excited when
enclosure manufacturing companies tells them that there are new models
available for electronic enclosures and they are available to be shipped now.
Because of these wonderful features, the older ones are
retained and are still widely available. The gasket for dust and water-proofing
enclosures, the stainless steel crews and the sturdy enclosure construction.
The available optional cable glands and the mounted flange kits are also widely
available for the new enclosure sizes. We are pleased to know that the expanded
product lines are deeply going to help you out the rightful NEMA rated case
enclosure that is the perfect fit for you company.
In conclusion, if you would like to have your enclosure
customized, you can politely ask the enclosure manufacturing company to fix the
problem for you. Most of the companies allows businesses to have a customized
enclosure for them. Just make sure that the details are clearly communicated so
that they will deliver you the best product as possible.
To ensure the electrical grid is totally secured is not new in the entire process, however with the potential alarming threats existing today together with the risks in forms of physical assaults, possible calamities, and cyber attacks how sure are we that our community is ready to face threats in their quality of life, economic-well being as well as their overall safety?
Together with these potential threats just roaming around the corner, comes with more and increased potential questions. How are the companies prepared to face possible threats and how to effectively respond to them in terms of recovering from high impacted low-frequency HILF events? These events can bring large-scale, multi-site impacts on other companies. How well are companies’ plants in terms of assessing the recovery time whether the affected assets of several transformers requires longer lead time for transportation? How certain are they to measure and assess if the spare assets are readily available to technicians’ reach when there is a restoration needed? What will happen if the customers are not well prepared to face these adversaries?
Together as an industry, companies should be eager to seek new ways in improving their resilience and recovery time when facing these problems ahead of them. The companies should take the leadership in stewarding the development of a holistic plan that comes with cost-effective solutions in improving the resilience of the electric grid. Once the concerns regarding the resilience will remain unsatisfied by the actions in the industry, the concerned regulators and some government officials will opt to formulate their own solutions. This will eventually result in new laws, legislation, mandates, and standards.
However, it is not practical to just protect or harden the grid that covers hundreds of thousands of miles’ worth of transmission lines and tens of thousands of substations that comes with them. There is one option viable, that is already considered by companies as one new way in improving the resilience. This is to eventually increase the energy supply of the nation through large power transformers or what we call as LPTs.
Some of the utilities decided to maintain some of the operational spares in the order to form them to replace the large power equipment that will eventually fail because of the normal wear and tear because of frequent use. However, it still remains to be economically reasonable to restrict the stockpiling of expensive pieces of equipment in line with the preparation of the companies’ own worst-case scenario. Unless including in each utility is the storage of their backups in some of the secured and off-site locations. However, it is also likely that the backup transformers in this process will eventually be damaged because of the same HILF event that brought damage in their in-use equipment.
Last 2006, the nation’s power sector took a very important step in addressing the replacement of these transformers that were damaged because of some terrorist acts. In line with this, the Edison Electric Institute and some of the utility companies eventually formed a Spare Transformer Equipment Program (STEP). This program gives the participating utilities the permission to buy huge power transformers bought from other utilities in the industry but this happened only after a presidentially declared terrorist emergency happened.
