  • Operational and Safety Considerations for Light Rail

    652 Transportation Research Circular E-C058: 9th National Light Rail Transit Conference FIGURE 1 Human body current electrical model. For the step potential circuit, we have two feet in series, the contact resistance R1 is, therefore, equal to 6ρS. And the step potential is: ESTEP = I(RB + 6ρS) (2) For the touch potential, consider: R1 = 1.5ρS = 1.5 × 100 ohms = 150 ohms, based upon ρS

  • Intelligent Perimeter Lighting for Electrical Substations

    Security lighting is a well-established method of deterring theft and vandalism at electrical substations and other high-value sites. While lighting alone won’t stop a determined intruder, a well-lit site can discourage those who would hide under the cover of darkness, assist video surveillance operators by improving visual assessment abilities, and provide better visibility for on-site workers.
