Aeolian Vibration

In Memoriam: Dr Louis Cloutier (1936-2017)

My friend and former colleague, Dr. Louis Cloutier, passed away on February 26. A long time Hydro-Quebec engineer, among other achievements, he will be remembered for his major contribution to the solution of electric power transmission mechanical problems, most notably to Aeolian vibration control, and related conductor fatigue.

Overhead Electrical Conductor fatigue testing: a new standard

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) just released a new international standard titled: "Overhead lines - Method for fatigue testing of conductors". IEC 62568. Edition 1.0 2015-07. www.iec.ch . It closely follows previous CIGRE and EPRI publications on this topic:

CIGRE SC B2 WG11 TF7 "Fatigue Endurance Capability of Conductor/Clamp Systems - Update of Present Knowledge" CIGRE TB 332, 2007, Paris.
