author Dr. Mani Vadari is an industry first for this area.<span

Operations focusing on an area which is core to the utility’s most fundamental
mandate – delivering reliable power to its customers.<span

and even vendors who provide solutions and services to them.<span

business imperative of Electric System Operations and answers several important
questions: (1) what is the business of system operations and why is it
important? (2) What are the various systems that support this function and how
do they integrate into the rest of the utility? And (3) how does a utility’s
ability to operate its network contribute to sustaining its business in a

these impacts and connects them to changes in various systems that support the

in a published form anywhere. <span style='mso-spacerun:yes'> </span>Moving on,
the book takes the reader to the control center which is considered the hub of

system called the DEMS which has been designed around the needs of the customer

utility system. <o:p></o:p></span></p>
