A systematic reporting of all aspects of the electric power field, including coverage of both hydro- and thermal-generating plants. Thorough coverage of both static and dynamic operations of power systems. A global perspective from both an academic and industrial point of view. Emphasis on the important relations between operations and control devices, including useful considerations for control system design. New developments and original contributions, both for theory and for practical applications.
