Computer application in utility planning, engineering analysis, and operations and maintenance are addressed. Five areas of planning are described together with examples of EPRI software packages that illustrate the current status of digital computer program development in the US. These are corporate, environmental, demand-side, generation, and transmission planning. Utility engineering tools are divided into a number of design and analysis categories: transmission and distribution, power plant design, reliability assessment, fluid flow and heat transfer, and structural. Key examples of an advanced software problem in each of these categories are given. Examples of computer applications in utility system operations, power plant operations, and maintenance are described.<>
