Abstract

The authors give a qualitative and quantitative assessment of the personnel needs and supply in the electric power industry. Problems related to personnel quality and long-term supply have been identified. It is concluded that approximately 5% of electrical engineering students in the United States are committed to power engineering. This figure has had exhibited a significant downward trend since 1971. This downward trend is also observed in the commitment of university electrical engineering faculties. While the data do not indicate disturbing consequences in the short term, there is a serious problem foreseen in the long term.
