This short note tries to propose a somewhat different structure of the prevalent power system analysis approaches as a research idea for the near future power grids. It proposes a change in attitude to deal with power system basic analysis such as load flow, fault analysis, transient stability, harmonic analysis, and so on; the new attitude seem more suitable than prevalent frameworks for the coming power grids in which privatization, restructuring and data security accompanied by advanced communication and measuring facilities are all came to each other. The letter emphasis on a customer-by-customer decentralized approach which leads us to have real-time analysis of a n-million busbar system on million computers somehow communication transactions are substantially limited, measurements are reduced, restructuring policies are met, and the entire previously research advancements such as parallel processing and optimization based features are applicable in the new platform.
