Verbund AG, formerly known as Verbundgesellschaft or Österreichische Elektrizitätswirtschafts-AG, is Austria's largest electricity provider. Verbund covers around 40 percent of electricity demands in Austria and generates 90 percent thereof from hydro power. In addition, Verbund operates the supraregional power grid through its subsidiary APG. Verbund AG is listed both on the Vienna Stock Exchange and in the ATX, the key index of Austrian stock-listed companies. The largest shareholder, at 51%, is the Republic of Austria. Wikipedia.

The chain of power plants at the Austrian Drau is a part of the Verbund system, the largest producer of electricity in Austria. Verbund produces (with its participations) about 25.000 GWh/a, that is app. 50% of Austria's public power supply. The flexible storage and pondage power plants within the Verbund have a very special position, because the Verbund is responsible for the load balance in Austria. © 1999 EUCA. Source
Nonlinear resistivity characteristics of end corona protection systems for rotating high voltage machines [Charakterisierung der nichtlinearen widerstandseigenschaften von endenglimmschutzsystemen rotierender hochspannungsmaschinen]

The insulation system of rotating high voltage machines is equipped with a semiconducting end corona protection (ECP) to prevent the inception of sliding discharges on the winding surface at the slot exit. Silicon carbide (SiC) with its nonlinear resistivity characteristics is the base for state-of-the-art end corona protection varnishes and tapes. In this paper a method for the characterization of the resistivity behavior of SiC powders and SiC-polymer-composites is presented and the measurement results are compared to commercially available ECP-tapes. © Springer-Verlag.

This paper presents an applied statistics method for the synthesis of multivariate time series of stochastic generation for planning purposes in power systems. It is shown that a suited model should represent satisfactorily the individual univariate stochastic processes and also reproduce the stochastic dependence structure between them. In order to fulfill all requirements, the method proposes the transformation of a set of recorded time series to the multivariate normal domain, the identification of a vector autoregressive model, the synthetization of a multivariate time series with desired length, and subsequently the back-transformation into the initial domain. The method can capture density functions, chronological persistence, diurnal periodicities and dependence structures of and between an arbitrary number of distributed system infeeds. Application can be found in the expansion of short data records into statistically significant synthetic time series for power system studies with distributed and uncertain resources. A simple practical example is given for illustration. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. Source
