This book discusses the problems of reliability caused by the deregulation of electric utilities and those of security created by the events of September 11. Author Anthony Pansini, a licensed professional engineer and Life Fellow of IEEE, suggests solutions, related to the design, construction, maintenance, and operation of transmission facilities, for maintaining and improving the reliability of deregulated transmission systems, and covers the National Transmission Grid Study in depth. He includes coverage of phenomena occurring in electric theory, in non- or semi-technical terms, for the benefit of the non-engineer.
