Abstract--This document details the available modes of protection within an electrical system with regard to the application of surge protective devices.  Variations in the number of modes protected by various SPD designs are discussed along with the terminology used to describe these protection schemes.

The document investigates what existing IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) standards state regarding the use of discrete individual protection elements in all modes when protecting electrical systems.  Further discussed are the benefits of such a protection scheme.


Today we'd like to highlight SSI Employee Rosa.  She has been a key member of the SSI Team since she started here over seven years ago.  We're all celebrating with Rosa as she recently fulfilled a long-time goal of obtaining her U.S. Citizenship.  Below is a transcript of our interview.

We have gone pretty deep in our last several articles on the technical aspects of Solar & Wind. If you have not seen them, take a look at the July and August issues. This final Solar & Wind feature article's focus is on the potential of the industry. If you are involved in the electrical industry, you surely are feeling the impact of the Solar & Wind industries. Take a moment to visit the following site: AE Solar Power News. Here you will find numerous articles ranging from one focusing on the movement of solar into the military to another discussing a solar powered robot developed by MIT for the purpose of cleaning up the Gulf of Mexico.
