The power systems, power engineering, and power industry are all changing in rapid manner. There are several contemporary drives for such a change. The exhaustion of fossil fuels, the introduction of renewable sources, the increase in electrical vehicles, distributed generation, distributed accumulation, real-time negotiated energy transactions, and the introduction of electronic controlled loads and sources with both local and remote supervision and control are all calling for fast and substantial changes in generation, transmission, distribution, and use of the electrical energy.
