   1. Calasanz T, The Power Sector in Perspective, The Manila Chronicle,
       1989 May 5, Business Section.  In this article, I predicted that in two 
       years a serious power crisis would be experienced on the grid.  
       The prediction came true.
   2. Calasanz T, "Culture-Based Strategy for Change and Development" 
       (pamphlet guide), CEPSI, Philippine Society for Training and 
       Development, and NAPOCOR, 1981.  I discussed the interaction of 
       people within a Filipino organization and showed how productivity 
       and good organizational health could be achieved by re-engineering 
       its management style.  The results became a model even for some 
       neighboring ASEAN electric utilities.  The Top Management of the 
       Electric Utility of Malaysia invited me to discuss with them and their 
       Managers, the elements of the culture-based strategy.  They invited 
       me to join their organization after I left the National Power Corporation.
   3. Calasanz T, Emergency Systems in Electric Power Systems, 
       National Power Corporation (NAPOCOR) (handbook for operators), 
       1982.  In the event of a major catastrophy in a power plant, the failure 
       of a small DC relay that controls the DC lube oil pump to supply oil 
       to its steam turbine bearings could cost a utility US$100 million and a 
       10-month downtime.  The objective of this handbook is to make sure 
       that all the components comprising the "last lines of defence" are 
       properly designed and duly maintained.
   4. Calasanz T, Standard Operating Procedures in Electric Power 
       Systems (Start-up and Shutdown), National Power Corporation 
       (NAPOCOR) (handbook for operators), 1983.  Start-ups and 
       shut-downs are the most critical "technical transients" in the life of 
       equipment in electric power systems.  This manual lists down all 
       the "concurrent" and "sequential" activities to be performed in each 
       power plant or substation.  The activities are formulated according 
       to "best practice" for each installation.  Each activity must be 
       signed off by an "accountable" person.  Only the Plant Manager 
       or his designated official may clear the start-up or shut-down 
       process to proceed to the next step.  

PAPERS PRESENTED AND PUBLISHED 
   1) My unique personal contribution to the University: Innovation in 
       teaching electronics, as characterized by a) project-based, 
       b) student-centered, c) designed for enjoying the course content, 
       d) the generation of a highly motivated learning process, e) and 
       above all, the unleashing of the students' "freedom to think". For 
       this, I received the School of Science and Engineering Dean's 
       Award for Teaching Innovation.
