    Open Access
    Occasionally, lightning will exit the top of a thunderstorm and connect to the lower edge of space, forming a gigantic jet. Here, we report on observations of a negative gigantic jet that transferred an extraordinary amount ...
  • New smart sensor for voltage unbalance measurements in electrical power systems 

    Bogarra Rodríguez, Santiago; Saura Perisé, Jaime; Rolán Blanco, Alejandro (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2022-10-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper deals with voltage unbalances and how they can be quantified according to the standards. Firstly, a comparison between the different unbalance voltage factors is conducted in order to remark on their divergences. ...
