Paper Abstract

Technologies developing in the smart materials and structures community might provide solutions to many challenges facing the electric power industry. Adoption of smart materials and structures would be facilitated if researcher knew more about power industry problems and about the changing nature of electric utilities. Accordingly, an overview of the utility industry is presented as an indication of the breadth and magnitude of problems facing the industry. Technical characteristics of some illustrative utility challenges are outlined and possible approaches for applying smart materials and structures are suggested.
