Opportunities for Practical Improvements in the Management of Plant Transients (Opening Address)

  • Edwin L. Zebroski


There have been many meetings and publications on the data and analysis of transients. There have been few meetings and fewer publications on the combination of activities which are involved in improving our ability to recognize, diagnose, and manage safe and undamaging responses to transients. This conference brings together most of the activities involved.
