Advanced Operational Systems

This course presents a deep-dive into the Smart Grid dimension of Advanced Operational Systems. In this course, we will answer the following questions What are advanced operational and decision-support systems What are their key drivers? What are key centralized and decentralized operational systems? and What are some advanced decision-support systems?

The course starts with a detailed analysis of centralized and decentralized operations and then moves to the architectural and functional evolution of centralized operational systems such as SCADA, EMS, OMS, DMS, and DEMS (Distributed Energy Management System).  The course then moves to decentralized operations such as real and reactive power flow control, dynamic line rating, etc.  The course ends with a discussion of advanced operator decision-support tools for situational awareness, visualization, and grid simulation along with examples of utility spending on advanced systems and market forecast
