This source-agnostic time domain distance relay uses only single-ended measurements to detect, classify, and locate any fault on the line it monitors while eliminating known weaknesses of distance relays. Recent advances in renewable energy technology allow several hundred megawatts of power to be in a single plant and connect to the electric grid through inverters. All major renewable resources, such…

Semiconductor optical fibers marry the enablement of modern electronic devices of semiconductors with the light-guiding capability of fiber optics. Combining these attributes allows for the desirable material properties of important semiconductor phases in the form of long lengths of fiber. Semiconductor optical fibers are made using one of two approaches: the molten core method and a chemical vapor deposition method….
