The electrical power grid (the electricity transmission and distribution system) is one of the greatest and most complex engineering achievements of the 20th century. However, it is also at the center of massive changes in the way we create and consume energy that are brought about by many drivers, including an increasing usage of renewable energy and natural gas. Moreover, it exhibits persistent conceptual difficulties that, while generally successfully contained by engineering practice, have never been fully resolved.
