VULNERABILITY OF THE US ELECTRICAL GRID

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This program will review three severe electromagnetic threats that provide a serious challenge to the operation of the U.S. power grid. These include: a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) attack produced by the detonation of a nuclear device in space; intentional electromagnetic interference (IEMI) produced by a nearby attack using new-technology electromagnetic weapons; and the exposure of the power grid from solar activity producing a severe geomagnetic storm on the Earth.

The presentation will review the electromagnetic characteristics of each threat, a summary of how these electromagnetic fields can create upsets and damage to power grid components and finally how the power grid can be protected from each of these threats, particularly here in Texas.

Dr. William Radasky, President of Metatech

Bob Hall, Texas State Senator, District 2
