Smart-Grid Control Systems: Moving Towards a Self-Healing Grid
Smart embedded systems that combine instrumentation, analytics, and control can make the grid more like the Internet – self-diagnosing and self-healing, distributed rather than centralized, and bidirectional rather than unidirectional. This session explains the fundamentals of smart-grid distribution and bidirectional power control systems and provides development tips and tricks for architecting a scalable control architecture with peer-to-peer communication between distributed nodes and fast hard real-time FPGA-to-FPGA control links. What is a distribution fault anticipation system? How do smart switches and reclosers detect problems and reroute power to isolate a fault? How do grid adaptive energy storage systems store and release energy at sub-cycle control loop rates?
