Synchronous condenser[edit]

I have added Synchronous condenser to our project, requires assessment! μTalk 18:40, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

Already rated C-class by Wikipedia:WikiProject Energy so I carried that over. Rated as low importance for this project since it is not a core grid component. Please change if anyone thinks it is more central. I also added a few other nearby articles to the project: Static VAR compensator, Flexible AC transmission system and Thyristor controlled reactor. ~Kvng (talk) 14:48, 24 October 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Linda Shapiro[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Linda Shapiro has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

I don't believe that Professor Shapiro meets the basic notability guideline, of having "received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject." I looked through the top 50 G-Hits for "professor Linda Shapiro" and quickly realized that there are multiple subjects, found no independent reliable sources providing coverage, and got to the point where the three words were each appearing separately in the article instead of together.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.  ★  Bigr Tex 03:00, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Template:Scientists whose names are used as SI units[edit]

Template:Scientists whose names are used as SI units has been put up for deletion. SpinningSpark 16:14, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Discussion closed with no consensus so we'll be keeping this. ~Kvng (talk) 15:44, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

Peer review of Planar transmission line[edit]

I've put this article up for peer review at Wikipedia:Peer review/Planar transmission line/archive1 with a view to taking it on to Featured Article status. All comments from project members would be very welcome. SpinningSpark 10:19, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject[edit]

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.


On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   10:55, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Measuring non-sinusoidal voltages[edit]

Please comment at Talk:Power factor as to whether that article should include a discussion as to why an averaging (non-RMS) multimeter will give incorrect results when measuring non-sinusoidal voltages. Kendall-K1 (talk) 14:38, 2 September 2018 (UTC)
