Review:

In the past 10 years, electric systems operations has become vastly more complex, and vastly more important, as the nation's power grid evolves towards an interconnected "smart grid." Here is the first book to grapple with these new complexities, written by one of the smart grid's true pioneers and true experts. --Jesse Berst, Managing Director Global Smart Energy, publisher of SmartGridNews.com and administrator of Smart Cities Council

"The electric industry is like no other industry in the world. Not only is it a great achievement from an engineering perspective, but it is also a myriad of complexities and frustration from regulations, rates, renewables, demand response, microgrids and more. Mani explains all the elements, and most importantly explains those elements in a way which is easily understood to an outsider and someone who has worked in the industry for years. Few people have Mani's wide experience and the ability to take complexity into simplicity. His book explains all these elements, and should be mandatory reading for anyone interested in doing business in the electric industry. --Brian Dawson, Executive VP of Business Development and Chairman of the Board, Calico Energy Inc.

The author has an impressive knowledge of North America s electrical infrastructure and more specifically the business of System Operations. His book will be an essential guide for those looking to make a meaningful entry into the market or even learn how to navigate its complexities when trying to interface with it. The future developments in the US electrical grid will generate business opportunities in areas others may have not yet even contemplated and this book is a useful guide for all. Many of the topics covered apply not only for North America s market but for the world. I have known Dr. Vadari for several years now and he has managed to leverage his expertise into this unique book. --Junji Kitaguchi, General Manager, R&D Unit, Global Environment & Infrastructure Business Development Group, Mitsubishi Corporation
