There is no formula for designing the electric power system for an industrial system that absolutely guarantees that the result will be successful.

This course presents the approach that the ideal way to design an industrial power system is to first define a set of quantifiable parameters that can be either calculated during the design process, or measured on the physical system after it has been constructed. Then, the process of addressing the physics behind each of those parameters forces the power engineer to achieve the desired performance which leads the engineer to make appropriate design decisions.

The four critical dimensions of performance, and hence the four areas that must be addressed in the design process are: Reliability, Steady-state performance, Performance in response to dynamic conditions and Protection.
