Proactive Management of the Future Grid
JAY GIRI (Life Fellow, IEEE)
Advances in grid management schemes include adding more intelligence at the substation and distribution systems, as well as microgrids and wide-area monitoring systems. One key initiative is to develop a predict-and-mitigate paradigm enabling anticipatory vision and timely decisions to mitigate potential problems before they spread to the rest of the grid. The word ``proactive'' means ``to act now in anticipation of future problems.'' Proactive grid management opportunities and solutions are described in this paper.
