The Pros & Cons of of 5
-
wire Distribution Systems

Summary:

In 2000, the Electric Pow
er Research Institute (EPRI) collaborated with the New York State Electric & Gas
Corporation, the New York State Energy Research & Development Agency, and the Empire State Electric
Energy Research Corporation to investigate the benefits that a five wire di
stribution could provide in
improving high impedance fault detection, reduce electromagnetic (EMF) fields, and stray voltage
mitigation. With the emotional level the issues of EMF and stray voltage still contain in the Midwest, it
is worth an unbiased rev
iew of EPRI’s report to see whether these goals were achieved and the lessons
learned.
