Emanuel, Alexander E.


Rapid innovations and discoveries in the field of electrical engineering are leading to an increased usage of electrical equipment. However, this proliferation of technology is also polluting the electrical power stream. Till now the electric industry has taken up the effort to curtail electrical pollution. However, with the deregulation of the electric industry, the industry is rethinking its approach to curtailing electrical pollution. In this report, we shall look at the problems faced in curtailing electrical pollution due to proliferation of polluting equipment. We shall also look at the environmental pollution control effort and see if any ideas could be used to curtail electrical pollution.
