PNL has a long history in RD&D for power systems. They had an active role in power systems since the 70s, working closely with EPRI and with BPA. Earlier work included studies like estimating the savings from improved voltage regulation, distribution system modernization, evaporative cooling of underground transmission, and future trend assessment for DOE.
More recently, they have been involved in superconductor applications, the distributed utility concept, advanced computation, particularly for transmission system dynamic analysis, and a range of special studies, including one on the need for power in the former soviet union.
