Managing Uncertainties of the Future Grid: “ Keeping the Lights On! Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow!”
Abstract: Managing the future grid will require creative, innovative solutions. This is because of uncertainties being
introduced by the growth of less predictable & reliable renewable generation resources, demand response
programs, distributed generation, microgrids, potential cyber-security issues and the aging infrastructure.
Energy Management Systems (EMS) have been deployed for decades at utility control centers to manage
the electricity grid in real-time. Today these EMS capabilities are poised to be enhanced quite dramatically
with growth of synchrophasor PMU measurements. Solutions to decentralize management of the grid are
also being introduced – these include Distribution Management Systems, Substation Automation and
advances in grid control devices. These new solutions will help us manage the uncertainties and challenges
of the future smart grid.
