Task Force: Application of Big Data Analytic on Transmission System Dynamic Security Assessment
The Task Force Application of Big Data Analytic on Transmission System Dynamic Security Assessment belongs to the IEEE PES Subcommittee on Big Data & Analytics for Power Systems and is part of the IEEE Power & Energy Society (IEEE PES).
The energy demand is continuously growing as result of a more digital and technological Society and energy transitions are pushing towards more sustainable societies demanding for modern and carbon-free energy grids.
Implementing measures to fulfil the energy demand mainly based on green energy sources involves technical and economic challenges such as dependency on cross border exchange, the reinforcement of the existing transmission capacity and the need of flexibility by means of creating new interconnections with border countries. As a consequence, the transmission system is becoming vulnerable and operates closer to its boundary conditions, hence becoming more difficult to operate in real time. Consequently, utilities require higher degree of observability in the network from of advance measuring infrastructure in order to improve the decision making and situational awareness of the transmission system.
Under this context, big data analytic (data mining, artificial intelligence and machine learning) unfolds new opportunities to develop sophisticated online and offline dynamic security assessment tools, particularly in bulk power systems where transmission system operators are struggling to cope with expanding data flows and computational demands.
Mission and Scope
Our task force pursues several goals. The following points describe what the Task Force will do in the coming years.
- Achieve transfer of knowledge between different scientific communities to solve challenging power system problems and bridge the gap between these communities.
- Evaluate how innovative algorithms could be used in the control room of power system operators to facilitate the decision making and to find stability margins in order to guarantee a secure operation.
- Enhance the value of available data in control rooms, quickly, easily and precise.
- Development of offline/online tools for parameter validation in control rooms.
- Provide a high quality report with a compilation of data mining, artificial intelligence and machine learning applications for the secure operation of transmission systems.
The following activities are planned for the upcoming years:
- Physical meetings of the Task Force during the PES General Meetings 2020, 2021 and 2022
- Virtual Meetings, at least two per year (Autumn & Spring)
- Organization of one panel session in an IEEE PES Conference, 2021
- International Workshop in Tianjin University, 2021
Furthermore, several reports are scheduled for the future:
- Report 1 “Data handling on transmission systems: A survey of needs for transmission utilities to understand they current issues related with continuous grow of data in control rooms”, end 2020
- Special issue of the Task Force in an international journal, announced before the end of 2021
- Report 2 “Compilation of data mining, artificial intelligence and machine learning applications to enhance the value of data in control rooms”, by PES General Meeting 2021
- Final Report “Demonstration of application of data mining, artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to maintain the security operation of transmission systems”, IEEE Transactions, by PES General Meeting 2022
In the coming weeks and months the following points are on the agenda of our task force:
- 07 September 2020: Virtual Workshop DynPower
- October 2020: Virtual Workshop, organized by Tianjin University
- End of 2020: Report 1 “Data handling on transmission systems: A survey of needs for transmission utilities to understand they current issues related with continuous grow of data in control rooms”
Our task force was only founded in the summer of 2020. In the following all activities that have happened since then:
- Official kick-off meeting during the IEEE PES General Meeting 2020
- Panel session during the IEEE PES General Meeting 2020
