Due to the complexity, and heterogeneity of the smart grid and the high volume of information to be processed, artificial
intelligence techniques and computational intelligence appear to be some of the enabling technologies for its future development
and success. The theme of the book is "Making pathway for the grid of future" with the emphasis on trends in Smart Grid, renewable
interconnection issues, planning-operation-control and reliability of grid, real time monitoring and protection, market, distributed
generation and power distribution issues, power electronics applications, computer-IT and signal processing applications,
power apparatus, power engineering education and industry-institute collaboration. The primary objective of the book is to
review the current state of the art of the most relevant artificial intelligence techniques applied to the different issues
that arise in the smart grid development.
