Real-Time Grid Reliability Management
Reliability Adequacy Tools
Research, development, and demonstration of operational decision support tools to provide software to monitor the adequacy of power supplies and system performance monitoring along with information visualization tools for use by system operators and security coordinators. CERTS is identifying, prototyping, demonstrating, and disseminating software that will:
- Measure key system operating and market parameters (frequency, voltage, congestion, market power);
- Monitor and graphically represent system performance—i.e., how far the system is from the "edge";
- Track, identify, and save data on abnormal operating patterns;
- Predict system response in near-real time, by means of simulations and "what-if" analysis.
Using this software, operators will be able to rapidly and intuitively assess system health and vulnerabilities in real time and undertake corrective actions.
