Abstract

The current status of power engineering and its future trends are discussed. Power engineering has taken a back seat in most of the electric engineering curricula with the advent of communication systems, information technologies and solid state electronics. There is a need of moving power engineering to high-tech programs that involve systems, new materials, applied mathematics and physics and integrated economic principles.
