The electric distribution agrees very well with that predicted by the cavity model analysis of the PSEC [cf.
7%) and consists of 549 MW of owned generation assets including the Marion and PSEC units, and 38 MW in power purchase agreements with Southeastern Power Administration (28 MW) and Pioneer Trail Wind Farm (10 MW).
The members are obligated pursuant to take-or-pay power sales agreements, to pay NIMPA for all its power supply costs, including debt service on the PSEC related bonds, whether the project is operating or not.
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.
COMPROMISED PSEC OPERATIONS: With members' reliance on PSEC for the majority of their power supply and NIMPA's high (PSEC-related) debt burden, failure of the project to adequately operate could result in negative rating pressure for NIMPA.
In addition to the PSEC project and MoPEP 1, MJMEUC has interests in the Plum Point and Iatan 2 projects.
However, for data for Figures 2 and 3, a 40 psec rise time step stimulus was selected to produce high-bandwidth results.
With Trimble County Unit #2 and the PSEC projects now completed and online, IMEA plans to reduce the amount of power it purchases to meet participating members' energy needs from nearly 82% in 2010 to approximately 33% in 2013.
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.
