Real-Time Simulation of Power Grid Disruptions

Problem Statement:

  • How to rapidly identify disruptions far from the network of sensors in time to take mitigating action.

Technical Approach:

  • Step 1 Fast signature extraction algorithms
  • Step 2 Maintenance of large data sets
  • Step 3 n-k contingencies within an HPC environment
  • Step 4 historian development of solved contingency classes


  • Utility assurance of compliance with reliability standards as smart grid technologies and intermittent renewable generation are deployed  widely.
