Energy systems design, particularly electrical, is nowadays increasingly influenced by social issues linked to energy economy policies and the reducing the impact on the environment. To this, numerous technical demands are added, such as volume and mass, lifetime, reliability, quality (susceptibility, harmonic pollution), stability and recyclability. Being strongly linked to cost criteria, these demands require design to be tackled according to a “technico-economic” approach. Thus, the end of the 20th century was marked by a notable evolution towards a more complete evaluation of costs over the whole of the life cycle of the system (production, maintenance and usage costs, even dismantling/recycling costs). Faced with these new considerations, designers are called upon to consider in more detail the environment in which their systems will evolve. It is therefore primordial, even imperative, to evolve toward a “systems design” approach, enabling, on one hand, an understanding of the coupling between system constituents, and facilitating, on the other, the integration of the "finality" (mission) and “environmental variables” of the device being designed, from the first stages of design.
