Experts say the demand for electricity, natural gas, and water will double or triple as billions of people join the digital economy, and the use of energy and water will grow while vehicles and mass transit go electric. One thing is clear – the digital economy needs clean, dependable, and affordable electricity. This should be a great outlook for power generators, distributors, and retailers, but decarbonization, deregulation, and decentralization are disrupting the century-old utilities hierarchy. A “Digital Energy Network” is emerging that reflects new structures of power generation, transmission, distribution, and retail. It will foster new business models and processes and transform work in a competitive and collaborative digital economy.

Our client is a Finnish consulting and engineering company that deals with some of the world's toughest industries. Since 1958, the company has handled the power transmission system for the Swedish National Grid, revamped Salzburg railway station, and has been involved in 90 percent of the world's largest pulp mill designs.
The nature of our client's work places unique demands on their IT infrastructure. Many of their projects require them to set up temporary offices in remote locations to deliver their engineering expertise, making seamless connectivity a critical business requirement. Large files, such as complex pipeline drawings, are passed between team members in different locations. Any outage that causes a delay in projects leads to potential financial penalties and damage to reputation.
Globally, the demand for power is increasing, driven by a growing population, mass urbanisation, and rapid industrialisation of nations like China and India. The consequence for those in the business of power generation, transmission and distribution is a need to achieve greater productivity and reliability, in a challenging climate of stricter environmental targets, severe penalties for supply interruptions, tighter budgets and tougher operating conditions.
A powerful signal integrity analysis tool must be flexibility, easy to use and integrated into an existing EDA framework and design flow. In addition, it is important for the tool to be accurate enough. This report reviews a validation study for the Mentor Graphics HyperLynx 8.0 PI tool to establish confidence in using it for power integrity analysis.

Your LOTO program must address the hazards that workers face
when they place any part of their body near a machine’s point of
operation, power transmission apparatus, pinch points, or other
moving parts during maintenance and servicing activities. If the
machine is not properly shut down and secured, it could unexpectedly start up, release stored energy, move, or cycle, causing crushing injuries, amputations, or even fatal injuries. A well-designed LOTO program can prevent these injuries.
Here are 10 tips for ensuring that your LOTO program is well-designed and effective, and that it avoids some of the more common failure points found in LOTO programs.
