Software for power grid management

Software for power grid management is being developed at CMU to enable the          
transition from today’s centralized power management systems to a new paradigm of
distributed control of power management systems. This will enable utilities to more
effectively manage dynamic power grids, with greater resiliency for unforeseen events while
reducing the need for spare capacity reserves. Further, such distributed approaches will
ease the integration of intermittent power sources, such as wind and solar; the adoption
of microgrids, and management of demand response programs.
