Cloud Computing for Renewable Power Systems
Renewable energy systems are playing a main role in the future power systems. Therefore, the future electricity infrastructure must support the integration of the existing conventional power system with varies renewable energy resources, which are widely dispersed power sources. This interconnected power pools or grid needs a real-time monitoring, controlling and high computational power. There are many devices connected to the grid enable the users to exchange information with power systems. This paper discussed the computation power and the performance of the cloud computing platform by implementing a lab demonstrator which is a load forecasting application in energy management field. Moreover, it announces an insight to the application of cloud computing in the next generation power systems.
