Conclusions and Future Trends in Emerging Techniques

  • Zhaoyang Dong

A number of emerging techniques for power system analysis have been described in the previous chapters of this book. However, given the complexity and ever increasing uncertainties of the power industry, there are always new challenges and consequently new techniques that are needed as well. The major initiatives in the power industry of this decade are no doubt renewable energy and more recently, the smart grid. These new challenges have already encouraged engineers and researchers to explore more emerging techniques. Given the fast changing environment, some of the techniques may become more and more established for power system analysis. These rapid changes also result into the wide diversity in the emerging techniques; consequently, this book can only cover some of these techniques. However, it is expected that these techniques discussed in the book can provide a general overview of the recent advances in power system analysis. As the technology advances, continuous study in this area is expected. This chapter summarizes some of the key techniques discussed in the book. The trends of emerging techniques are also given, followed by a list of topics for further reading.
