    Of grave concern is the decline in the reliability of our bulk electric power systems brought on by restructuring. Conditions on our transmission systems have affected the installed capacity needed and how it should be operated. Some of the existing software packages that are being used to make reliability evaluations and to plan and operate systems are inadequate and should be used with careful r... View full abstract»

    Power system simulation involves a wide range of timeframes, starting at microseconds when simulating fast electromagnetic transients and extending to several years in system planning studies. The same system may have to be modeled and solved in many different ways, depending upon the studied event of interest. It has been desirable to have a single software platform from which several power syste... View full abstract»

    As computers and other electronic equipment become the mainstay of today's businesses, customer awareness and intolerance for power system outages continues to heighten. For these customers, it is important that utilities be able to offer complete solutions to meet their needs. Depending on the customer load requirements, standby generation, uninterruptible power supply, or automatic restoration a... View full abstract»

    Present-day operating systems have graphical user interfaces (GUI) that are of great help in designing good user interfaces for application programs. Also, there have been dramatic improvements in computer power and power-to-price ratio. Acknowledgement is growing, even in technical environments, that good man-machine interfaces (MMI) have so many advantages that they are worth the effort of desig... View full abstract»

    Today's utility business environment of deregulation and more volatile energy markets has forced utilities to operate more efficiently and become more flexible. However, utilities cannot adapt to changing business conditions without having a flexible information technology (IT) infrastructure as well as information about and complete control of operational systems. While traditionally the business... View full abstract»

    A sound design method is based upon a sound theoretical foundation, yet it offers degrees of freedom for artistic innovation. In the object oriented paradigm, the world is viewed as a collection of objects interacting with each other to achieve a meaningful behavior. The design perspective provided in this article can be used for many applications, such as power system state estimation and optimal... View full abstract»
