EPA: The U.S. Electricity System We continue our look at old issues of Pulse starting with September 1986. A Section meeting co-sponsored by PACE featured a talk on “Cogeneration: The Impact of Decentralized Power Generation.” The speaker was Angelo Orazio, a former engineer, and New York State Assemblyman. He was describing smaller power systems set up and shared by several companies. He was apparently advocating more decentralization of power sources. From what I can tell, we have since had more centralization with our massive power grids although the rapid growth of solar power is in the spirit of this talk. Our microwave (MTT... Read More

In Memoriam I was saddened to learn that Eugene Sard, an IEEE Fellow, died recently. He had a career at AIL (now Harris) spanning more than 40 years, starting in 1948. His 1973 Fellow award citation was, “For contributions to the field of a low-noise microwave, millimeter wave, and infrared receivers”. He made many basic contributions to the theory and design of low-noise microwave amplifiers in the 1950’s and 1960’s that helped to make AIL an international leader in this technology.He subsequently made similar advances in millimeter and infrared receiver technology. Those of us, that had the privilege of working and knowing him, were also struck by his very high ethical and moral standards. We will miss... Read More
