New approach to electricity measurement could mean fewer blackouts, better automation and more clean energy resources

In August 2016, two 500-kilovolt transmission lines in San Bernardino County, California, tripped offline during a fire. As a result, some distance away, more than 1,000 megawatts of solar generation disconnected itself from the grid. Luckily, no one lost power. In contrast, a 2003 component failure in a generator near Lake Erie led to a slightly smaller loss of generation, but the ensuing blackout affected more than 50 million people.In August 2016, two 500-kilovolt transmission lines in San Bernardino County, California, tripped offline during a fire.
