Slow Week

I have been trying to make progress on some java software development lately and not spending much time trolling the internet for interesting things to post here.

We provided a tour of SSC to the NIU IEEE Student Group yesterday morning. It went very well, they were all impressed with the steelmaking process and had some good questions. I was very surprised at the turnout for 0900 on a Saturday morning. As always I made a pitch for considering an Engineering career in steel.

I’m diligently working on Engineering for the replacement of metering, protection and control of our main distribution substation. It is all analog electro-mechanical Westinghouse equipment that is being replaced with SEL digital components. Our documentation is dated (~1950’s) and not the best which makes the job harder than it normally would be. I end up doing more reverse engineering than forward engineering.

Looking forward to spring….
