Current Issue

The new focus on grid modernization efforts has been enabled by the introduction of cost effective new technologies to sense, communicate, analyze, and predict, providing operational awareness of the power system and its connected assets.

Previously known as the Protection & Control Journal, this inaugural issue of The Grid Modernization Journal takes a broader look at the primary equipment, intelligent devices and sensors, automated controllers, and grid management tools that are now become ubiquitous with our modern grid. From monitoring and trending transformer oil temperature and estimating remaining life using advanced multi-gas monitoring to substation automation and digitization across utility and industrial applications, we explore and discuss some of the very technologies being piloted and deployed throughout power systems around the world.
