Electric utilities and Independent System Operators currently face critical challenges including:
Changing resource mix with integration of renewables and distributed technologies resulting in variable production, and bi-directional power flows. Delayed system visibility when current state estimation technologies fail to solve during contingencies when visibility and contingency assessment is most critically needed. Lack of real-time assessment of voltage and phase angle margins and actions needed to withstand multiple additional contingencies. More
