A Grid Computing Service for Power System Monitoring
Extensively interconnected power grid has been a long cherished dream of the power system engineers. Recently, the incredible publicity of smart grid has brought about a revolution in the way the power system's operation and control functions are planned. However, attempts to interconnect power system grids have consistently resulted in failures, like cascaded failures, often leading to black-outs. Taking into account the real-time requirements to deal with power system diagnostic procedures, it is absolutely essential to have an effective and reliable monitoring of the entire system. In this paper, the authors have implemented the monitoring of Odisha power grid to fulfill the requirement of distinguished power system protection. This paper advocates the use of grid computing in power system monitoring.
