About the Author

Richard E. Brown is the Vice President of Operations for Quanta Technology.


... The author does excellent work in organizing, describing, and explaining the business concepts. All concepts are clearly and accurately explained, and the material is presented at an appropriate level of complexity and depth ... informative and valuable as a reference book. I recommend the book to any utility engineer responsible for planning, designing, managing, or maintaining utility infrastructure.
--Robert E. Bisson, IEEE Power & Energy Magazine
