Smart Grid Software & Apps

Utilities worldwide are adopting innovative technology to embrace the potential of the Smart Grid while conquering a myriad of new challenges posed by it, and by a new host of financial and regulatory challenges. In order to take advantage of the opportunities presented, while at the same time,...

THE SMART GRID: STATUS AND OUTLOOK

The electrical grid in the United States comprises all of the power plants generating electricity, together with the transmission and distribution lines and systems that bring power to end-use customers. The “grid” also connects the many publicly and privately owned electric utility and power...


Grids Become Highly Vulnerable

Increasingly violent weather, probably caused by global warming, is increasingly taking down electricity distribution lines and poles and cyberattacks are increasingly taking out electricity, apparently just as trials for major terrorism of this sort. Little wonder that the price of grid...

ENHANCING GRID RESILIENCE WITH INTEGRATED STORAGE FROM ELECTRIC VEHICLES

INTRODUCTION
Natural and man-made disasters threaten the electric grid’s ability to deliver reliable, high-quality power. Routine voltage sags and momentary interruptions impact power quality and are costly to producers and consumers. As the U.S. economy becomes increasingly dependent on information and communication technologies, access to reliable high-quality electricity is needed to be competitive in the global marketplace.

A resilient grid can absorb shocks to prevent disruptions, manage disruptions as they occur, and return to normal...
