The electric power grid is undergoing an unprecedented transformation due to the changing electric generation and load landscape, moving from large-scale solutions to customer-based decentralized and distributed ones. Grid operators collect and analyze a considerable amount of data to operate the grid, and as a result, becoming more reliant on their computing capabilities.
An ongoing challenge is that using existing solutions on more powerful computers is not a practical approach to address emerging complexities. Electric utilities will need to move beyond classical computing solutions for system operation and control under normal and contingency conditions.
This panel at the 2022 IEEE PES Transmission & Distribution Conference brings together subject matter experts to discuss the history and role of computing in electric power systems and how it has changed over the years. The panel will further discuss how quantum computing is becoming a necessity in addressing many challenges of the grid of the future.
