Tokyo Electric Power Company, Incorporated , also known as Toden or TEPCO, is a Japanese electric utility servicing Japan's Kantō region, Yamanashi Prefecture, and the eastern portion of Shizuoka Prefecture. This area includes Tokyo. Its headquarters are located in Uchisaiwaicho, Chiyoda, Tokyo, and international branch offices exist in Washington, D.C., and London. It is a founding member of strategic consortiums related to energy innovation and research; such as JINED, INCJ and MAI.In 2007, TEPCO was forced to shut the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Power Plant after the Niigata-Chuetsu-Oki Earthquake. That year it posted its first loss in 28 years. Corporate losses continued until the plant reopened in 2009. Following the March 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, its power plant at Fukushima Daiichi was the site of a continuing nuclear disaster, one of the world's most serious. TEPCO could face ¥2 trillion in special losses in the current business year to March 2012, and the Japanese government plans to put TEPCO under effective state control to guarantee compensation payments to the people affected by the accident. The Fukushima disaster displaced 50,000 households in the evacuation zone because of leaks of radioactive materials into the air, soil and sea.In July 2012 TEPCO received ¥1 trillion from the Japanese government. TEPCO's management subsequently made a proposal to its shareholders for the company to be part-nationalized. The total cost of the disaster was estimated at $100bn in May 2012. Wikipedia.

This paper describes a hybrid active filter intended for mitigating the line-side harmonic currents of a three-phase 12-pulse diode rectifier used as the front end of a medium-voltage high-power motor drive. This hybrid filter is characterized by series connection of a simple LC filter and a small-rated active filter. This circuit configuration brings low cost, small size, and light weight to the hybrid filter. A three-phase experimental system rated at 400 V and 15 kW is designed, constructed, and tested, which is a downscaled model of the medium-voltage motor drive system. In this experiment, the LC filter is tuned to the 11th-harmonic frequency, and the active filter is based on a three-level neutral-point-clamped pulsewidth modulation converter (NPC PWM) with a dc capacitor voltage as low as 28 V. This hybrid filter is connected on either first or fourth winding of a line-frequency transformer with a first Δ-winding voltage of 400 V in the primary, and a second Δ-winding voltage of 220 V, a third Y-winding voltage of 220 V, and a fourth Δ-winding voltage of 400 V in the secondary. Experimental results show that the hybrid filter performs satisfactory filtering in a range from no-load to full-load conditions. © 2011 IEEE. Source

An axial flow compressor includes: a rotor having a rotor vane; a first pressing member joined to one end surface of the rotor; a second pressing member joined to the other end surface of the rotor; a rotor shaft portion penetrating the first pressing member, the rotor and the second pressing member; and a nut which fixes the first pressing member and the second pressing member on the rotor shaft portion with the first pressing member and the second pressing member holding the rotor between. The rotor shaft portion is made of a material having a lower linear expansion coefficient than that of a material making at least a part of the rotor. The material making at least a part of the rotor may be aluminum or aluminum alloy.
