Energy has been an inevitable component of human lives for decades. Recent rapid developments in the area require analyzing energy systems not as independent components but rather as connected interdependent networks. The Handbook of Networks in Power Systems includes the state-of-the-art developments that occurred in the power systems networks, in particular gas, electricity, liquid fuels, freight networks, as well as their interactions. The book is separated into two volumes with three sections, where one scientific paper or more are included to cover most important areas of networks in power systems. The first volume covers topics arising in electricity network, in particular electricity markets, smart grid, network expansion, as well as risk management. The second volume presents problems arising in gas networks; such as scheduling and planning of natural gas systems, pricing, as well as optimal location of gas supply units. In addition, the second volume covers the topics of interactions between energy networks. Each subject is identified following the activity on the domain and the recognition of each subject as an area of research. The scientific papers are authored by world specialists on the domain and present either state-of-the-arts reviews or scientific developments.

Mechatronic Systems consist of components and/or sub-systems which are from different engineering domains. For example, a solenoid valve has three domains that work in a synergistic fashion: electrical, magnetic, and mechanical (translation). Over the last few decades, engineering systems have become more and more mechatronic. Automobiles are transforming from being gasoline-powered mechanical devices to electric, hybrid electric and even autonomous. This kind of evolution has been possible through the synergistic integration of technology that is derived from different disciplines. Understanding and designing mechatronic systems needs to be a vital component of today's engineering education. Typical engineering programs, however, mostly continue to train students in academic silos (otherwise known as majors) such as mechanical, electrical, or computer engineering. Some universities have started offering one or more courses on this subject and a few have even started full programs around the theme of Mechatronics. Modeling the behavior of Mechatronic systems is an important step for analysis, synthesis, and optimal design of such systems. One key training necessary for developing this expertise is to have comfort and understanding of the basic physics of different domains. A second need is a suitable software tool that implements these laws with appropriate flexibility and is easy to learn. This short text addresses the two needs: it is written for an audience who will likely have good knowledge and comfort in one of the several domains that we will consider, but not necessarily all; the book will also serve as a guide for the students to learn how to develop mechatronic system models with Simscape (a MATLAB tool box). The book uses many examples from different engineering domains to demonstrate how to develop mechatronic system models and what type of information can be obtained from the analyses.

The 2014 International Conference on Energy and Power Engineering (EPE2014), will be held on April 26–27, 2014, in Hong Kong, China. The aim of this international convention is to bring together experts and scholars from around the world and offer them a chance to share the latest research results in the field of Energy and Power Engineering. We all know that over the past few decades, a great change has happened in the field of the environment technology, and the science technology is growing faster and faster. In order to keep up with the daily changing situation, we have sent invitations to experts, scholars and other people who have devoted himself in related fields, and it is a great honor to us that most of them have accepted our invitation and supported the EPE2014 with their latest studies. Up till now, we have received over three hundred papers from various countries; this shows that there has been a growing interest in the field of energy and power engineering. Among those papers received, we have eventually chosen about a hundred to be presented and included in this proceeding. These papers generally represented the current research status in this field and the future trend. We sincerely believe that these papers could be valuable to the future work of yours. Finally, on behalf of the committee, I would like to deeply express our gratitude to those who have supported the EPE2014, especially the international experts who helped reviewing papers, the DEStech Publications help publish the conference proceedings, and last but not least, the authors of these inspiring papers. Without the help from these people, EPE2014 would not be as half successful as it is now. Here, welcome to EPE2014 and let’s hope that it will be a great success. Tim Chou

The human capacity to abstract complex systems and phenomena into simplified models has played a critical role in the rapid evolution of our modern industrial processes and scienti c research. As a science and an art, Modelling and Simulation have been one of the core enablers of this remarkable human trace, and have become a topic of great importance for researchers and practitioners. This book was created to compile some of the most recent concepts, advances, challenges and ideas associated with Intelligent Modelling and Simulation frameworks, tools and applications. The rst chapter discusses the important aspects of a human interaction and the correct interpretation of results during simulations. The second chapter gets to the heart of the analysis of entrepreneurship by means of agent-based modelling and simulations. The following three chapters bring together the central theme of simulation frameworks, rst describing an agent-based simulation framework, then a simulator for electrical machines, and nally an airborne network emulation environment. The two subsequent chapters discuss power distribution networks from different points of view|anticipation and optimization of multi-echelon inventory policy. After that, the book includes also a group of chapters discussing the mathematical modelling supported by veri cation simulations, and a set of chapters with models synthesised by means of arti cial intelligence tools and complex automata framework. Lastly, the book includes a chapter introducing the use of graph-grammar model for generation of threedimensional computational meshes and a chapter focused on the experimental and computational results regarding simulation of aero engine vortexes. Authors believe, that this book is a valuable reference to researchers and practitioners in the eld, as well as an inspiration to those interested in the area of Intelligent Modelling and Simulation.

Accurate knowledge of electromagnetic power system transients is crucial to the operation of an economic, efficient and environmentally-friendly power system network, without compromising on the reliability and quality of the electrical power supply. Simulation has become a universal tool for the analysis of power system electromagnetic transients and yet is rarely covered in-depth in undergraduate programmes. It is likely to become core material in future courses. The primary objective of this book is to describe the application of efficient computational techniques to the solution of electromagnetic transient problems in systems of any size and topology, involving linear and nonlinear components. The text provides an in-depth knowledge of the different techniques that can be employed to simulate the electromagnetic transients associated with the various components within a power system network, setting up mathematical models and comparing different models for accuracy, computational requirements, etc. Written primarily for advanced electrical engineering students, the text includes basic examples to clarify difficult concepts. Considering the present lack of training in this area, many practising power engineers, in all aspects of the power industry, will find the book of immense value in their professional work.
