This white paper outlines the scope of issues, challenges and opportunities in the area of real-time security monitoring and control (RTSMC) of power systems in the restructured electricity industry. The counterpart of power system reliability in real-time operations is security – the ability of the power system to withstand contingencies. This White Paper is part of a set of six papers on reliability aspects of the electric power system prepared for the U.S. Department of Energy by the Consortium of Electric Reliability Technology Solutions (CERTS).
