Description - Smart Grid Handbook by Chen-Ching Liu

Comprehensive, cross-disciplinary coverage of Smart Grid issues from global expert researchers and practitioners.
This definitive reference meets the need for a large scale, high quality work reference in Smart Grid engineering which is pivotal in the development of a low-carbon energy infrastructure. Including a total of 83 articles across 3 volumes The Smart Grid Handbook is organized in to 6 sections: Vision and Drivers, Transmission, Distribution, Smart Meters and Customers, Information and Communications Technology, and Socio-Economic Issues.
Key features:

Written by a team representing smart grid R&D, technology deployment, standards, industry practice, and socio-economic aspects.

Vision and Drivers covers the vision, definitions, evolution, and global development of the smart grid as well as new technologies and standards.

The Transmission section discusses industry practice, operational experience, standards, cyber security, and grid codes.

The Distribution section introduces distribution systems and the system configurations in different countries and different load areas served by the grid.

The Smart Meters and Customers section assesses how smart meters enable the customers to interact with the power grid.

Socio-economic issues and information and communications technology requirements are covered in dedicated articles.The Smart Grid Handbook will meet the need for a high quality reference work to support advanced study and research in the field of electrical power generation, transmission and distribution. It will be an essential reference for regulators and government officials, testing laboratories and certification organizations, and engineers and researchers in Smart Grid-related industries.

Author Biography - Chen-Ching Liu

Chen-Ching Liu, Boeing Distinguished Professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Washington State University, is an international leader in smart grid research. He is a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and is internationally recognized for pioneering contributions to the development of decision support systems for power system restoration following major outages. Dr Liu's research interests include cyber-power system vulnerability assessment, wide-area control and protection technologies for the power grid, and engineering and economic issues related to the integration of renewable energy. Professor Stephen McArthur is currently Head of the Electronic & Electrical Engineering Department at University of Strathclyde, UK. His research interests include: Power engineering applications of Artificial Intelligence; monitoring and diagnosis of nuclear reactors; intelligent and automated power system fault analysis; intelligent system methods; multi-agent systems and intelligent agents and architectures for power engineering applications and decision support environments. Seung-Jae Lee received his BS and MS in Electrical Engineering from Seoul National University, Korea in 1979 and 1981, respectively and his Ph.D. from University of Washington, Seattle, USA in 1988. He is now a Professor at Myongji University's Department of Electrical Engineering as well as a Director of the Next-generation Power Technology Center (NPTC). He is also a Chairman of IEC TC -57 Mirror Committee, Korea and a CIGRE SC B5 representative of Korea.
