Carvallo and Cooper describe how they built a smart electric power grid for the Austin, Texas power company, which they expect to be the first of many. They focus on the new power engineering concepts needed to drive the transition to a more rational approach to designing and operating an advanced smart grid. They discuss the inevitable emergence of the smart grid, the rationale for an advanced smart grid, smart convergence, smart grid 1.0 emerges, envisioning and designing smart grid 2.0, today's smart grid, and fast-forward to smart grid 3.0. No deep technical background is assumed.
