Abstract

The Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) is concerned with the material properties and behavior of dielectrics, particularly as applied to electrical insulation systems. The DEIS scope ranges from molecular properties and dielectric phenomena, to aging and failure modes of insulation systems for in-service assets. While perhaps not immediately apparent, the work of the DEIS is fundamental to delivering many aspects of smart grid technology. This article highlights some of the impacts DEIS research can have on the smart grid, while the companion articles report on recent advances at the forefront of dielectrics research from the recent Conference on Electrical Insulation and Dielectric Phenomena (CEIDP) 2014.
