About the Author

David Bakken is a professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Washington State University, as well as chief scientist at GridStat, Inc., Pullman, Washington, USA. His research interests include wide-area distributed computing systems, middleware implementation, and dependable computing. His GridStat data delivery software has influenced the shape of the emerging NASPInet. Since 1999 he has been working closely with electric power researchers to rethink wide-area data delivery in power grids, and is considered the world’s leading expert on the subject. He is a frequent visitor and lecturer at utilities, electrical engineering departments, and power meetings worldwide.

Dr. Krzysztof (Kris) Iniewski is managing R&D at Redlen Technologies Inc., Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, a leading manufacturer of high resolution cadmium zinc telluride semiconductor radiation detectors. He is also president of CMOS Emerging Technologies Research Inc., Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada, an organization hosting high-tech events on communications, microsystems, optoelectronics, and sensors. A popular speaker and consultant, he has published over 100 research papers, written and edited several books, and held faculty and management positions at University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada; University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada; Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada; and PMC-Sierra Inc., Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.


"… a well-planned research material for academic and industry professionals interested in the future of power generation and distribution. … This book is needed to promote discussion among professionals about the direction of smart grid evolution. … The book can be used as a primary material in an advanced-level course dedicated toward smart grids, as well as a supplementary material in a power distribution concepts course. … The complex ideas conveyed in this book are written in an easy-to-understand way, leaving the reader with a desire to read more."
—Jerzy Swic, Silicomotive Solutions, Inc., Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada"Especially noteworthy are the different contributions merging Smart Grid developments with Cloud Computing, showing up ways to improve grid reliability and power quality through on demand access to scalable computing resources while at the same time reducing IT infrastructure and maintenance cost for Smart Grid operators."
—Dr. Lars T. Berger, BreezeSolve"Cloud computing is critical for implementing smart grid technologies and this book provides great background material for researchers in the traditional power system area to learn and use this important technology. This book also provides an entry for cloud computing experts to apply their research to smart grids."
—Hemanshu R. Pota, The University of New South Wales Canberra, Australia
