Modeling Power Systems of the Future: Information Technology and Power System Dynamics

James J. Nutaro
Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Information technology is expected to have a central role in the future of electric power delivery. In this presentation, I will discuss techniques for modeling and simulation of future power systems that have classical electro-mechanical elements which interact with communication networks, software agents, real-time price signals, and other discrete event systems. Applications and supporting simulation technology will be discussed in the context of a notionally emergency load shedding system and a study of the impact that market clearing time and communication delay has on the stability of electric power markets.
