Knowledge Transfer of Substation Engineering and Experiences

Certainly “knowledge” is a major defining characteristic of mankind and a major contributor to our civilization and achievements. Ancient Rome was a milestone in technical achievement with engineered material (concrete), engineered structures (the Colosseum), and engineered systems (roads and aqueducts). All that preceded, such as the primitive use of fire and tools, to all that followed, like modern probing of atomic nucleus to the extents of the universe, have been the result of acquired knowledge. It is a clear fact that knowledge is a cornerstone of civilization. However, the discovery of even the smallest bit of “knowledge” is worth nothing in the long run without “knowledge transfer”. The transfer of knowledge throughout history was the real key to our civilization and success. And nothing is truer than this going forward.
