The electric distribution agrees very well with that predicted by the cavity model analysis of the PSEC [cf.
Another short-term bilateral contract for PSEC capacity in 2018 and 2019 is expected to further improve PPS's margins and provide a rebate to ratepayers over the next two years through a decrease in the power cost adjustment.
For measurements of Figures 5-8 (numerically equivalent to Figures 2 and 3 in Part I) a fast TDR rise time of 40 psec was applied aiming for high-bandwidth and accurate impedance data.
However, for data for Figures 2 and 3, a 40 psec rise time step stimulus was selected to produce high-bandwidth results.
When the received pulse consists of multiple photons in a single burst, the SU-02-SPC is capable of resolving adjacent pulses separated by less than 10 psec.
In many cases signals can run at frequencies well into the gigabit range, or at edge rates well below 500 psec before W-element or root frequency-dependent resistance is required.
