Abstract

The importance of the electrical energy supplies that may impact nation-wide economy has been the key to the smart grid initiative. This paper is going to pave the road leading to the urge of educating future power engineers with an introduction of the smart grid initiative, a progress report in the smart grid research, and a discussion in preparing for the future generation of smart grids. Having a unique background as a software engineer and an electrical power research engineer, the author proposes a novel approach for power engineers to be prepared for their successful career in the future of smart grid. It is a curriculum design for a power engineering program in 4-year colleges.
