Abstract

Transmission and distribution systems are at the beginning an era of significant change — an era that is technology-driven by microelectronics (computers and microprocessors), communications, and power electronics. The combined impact of these technologies makes the era unique and important for both transmission and distribution systems, by making them more reliable, controllable, and efficient.

Dr. Hingorani submitted this article when he was Senior Executive, Advanced Technology, at the Electric Power Research Institute.
