Power systems are large-scale, highly distributed, complex networks that interconnect huge numbers of dynamical devices. Yet through clever engineering, and inherent robustness, power systems have operated reliably for many decades. Looking to the future, likely trends include significant integration of renewable generation, and wide-spread adoption of plug-in electric vehicles. These changes will challenge various axioms that underlie current practices in power system operation and control. New strategies will be required to cope with the increasingly stochastic nature of generation and load patterns, with non-disruptive load control certain to play an important role. The seminar will discuss these issues, and argue that future power systems will be highly dependent upon wide-area monitoring, reliable and secure information networks, and distributed control.
