The Nuclear Weapons Complex (NWC) is a nationwide group of government-owned sites that is responsible for the design, development, production, modification, repair, assemble, disassembly, and testing of all nuclear weapons in the U S stockpile. The NWC has evolved since the beginning of the Manhattan Project in 1942 to meet national security objectives. It has met these objectives by: building the weapons that ended World War II; building a stockpile of weapons that served as a deterrent to the Soviet Union during the Cold War; incorporating new technologies into the stockpile; safely downsizing the stockpile and dismantling the excess nuclear weapons after the Cold War was over, and ensuring that the remaining stockpile is safe and reliable. This book provides a high level summary of this story. It begins in 1905 with Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity and his famous equation, E=mc2, and ends in the year 2001 with a discussion of the post-Cold War challenges for the NWC. It explains how and why the NWC grew from three sites at the start of the Manhattan Project to over fifty sites at the height of the Cold War, to eight sites-three laboratories, four production plants and one test site-after the Cold War ended

Impact of distributed energy resources on the reliability of a critical telecommunications facility ( )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The goal of this effort is to perform Probabilistic Risk Assessments (PRAs) on an existing power configuration for a large telecommunications office (a Sprint Mega-Site with battery backup, and diesel generator backup) and for two alternative power configurations involving gas turbines as a primary power source.The analysis focuses on the failure probability associated with each of the three facility configurations, along with some assessment of the uncertainty or confidence level in the failure probability estimate. Aging effects are not included in the analysis. Failure probability estimates will provide a necessary component to service availability estimates from the alternative configurations, but availability estimates per se will not be part of the study

This report was prepared to help small firm search for financing for geothermal energy projects. There are various financial and economics formulas. Costs of some small overseas geothermal power projects are shown. There is much discussion of possible sources of financing, especially for overseas projects. (DJE-2005)

Impact of distributed energy resources on the reliability of critical telecommunications facilities preprint by David G Robinson( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper documents a probabilistic risk assessment of existing and alternative power supply systems at a large telecommunications office. The analysis characterizes the increase in the reliability of power supply through the use of two alternative power configurations. Failures in the power systems supporting major telecommunications service nodes are a main contributor to significant telecommunications outages. A logical approach to improving the robustness of telecommunication facilities is to increase the depth and breadth of technologies available to restore power during power outages. Distributed energy resources such as fuel cells and gas turbines could provide additional on-site electric power sources to provide backup power, if batteries and diesel generators fail. The analysis is based on a hierarchical Bayesian approach and focuses on the failure probability associated with each of three possible facility configurations, along with assessment of the uncertainty or confidence level in the probability of failure. A risk-based characterization of final best configuration is presented
