The next generation of power systems must change and adapt to environmental factors, customer concerns, and reliability issues. The environment will be either a catalyst for or an obstacle to future electrical development, and customer-centred concerns will be a driving force for new concepts in demand participation. Additionally, recent and ongoing challenges related to blackouts and power quality problems in many parts of world must be solved with innovations in controls, devices, and infrastructure. Disasters of wide-scale proportion must be mitigated and our energy systems must expand rapidly in order to meet the growing demand for electrical energy.
