PA 317°; 5 (14 points total) (True/false) Two points each. Circle T if statement is true, F if statement is False. As of September 2009 natural gas prices in the US are at an all
time high. The world’s largest operational hydro plant is Grand Inga on the
Congo River in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Fossil fuels currently supply at least 80% of the energy used in the
US. Flourescent light bulbs are a source of power system harmonics Combined cycle power plants usually have efﬁciencies of no more
than 40%. Modern computer technology now allows most power to be
“routed” through the grid from a seller to a buyer. As a direct consequence of Kirchoff 5 current law the locational
marginal price (LMP) at a bus in the power grid can never be less
than zero since this would require negative resistive losses. 6 (15 points total) (Short answer, ﬁve points each) 1. As discussed in class, explain in two or three sentances howthe area control error
