Title: Distributed Real-Time Systems for the Intelligent Power Grid

Distributed Real-Time Systemsfor the Intelligent
Power Grid
  • Prof. Vincenzo Liberatore

Intelligent Power Grid
  • Situational awareness by means of time-stamped
    data collection, real-time wide-area
    visualization, and data integrity within and
    outside an operators own area.
  • Improvement of the quality of models and
    simulations by continuously matching models with
    measured data, for example to formulate and
    develop improved provisioning and contingency
    plans, and predictive models for security
    assessment and enhancement.
  • Timely and accurate information dissemination to
    all key stakeholders, including state and local
    officials, as wells as customer communication
    that is more scalable than one-on-one telephone
  • Proactive operations of facilities.
  • Real-time actions and distributed control of
    protection devices to prevent cascading failures
    or for the graceful degradation of user service
    based on service priorities, etc.
  • Real-time wide-area control to minimize power
    generation over-provisioning.
  • Context-dependent models and control of massive
    and cascading failures via predictable component
    interactions to achieve robustness,
    fault-tolerance, or graceful performance
  • Large-scale distributed real-time embedded
    software development according to the best
    practices in Software Engineering.
  • Integration of legacy systems as well as the
    plug-and-play introduction of novel components
    and solutions.
  • Support for ubiquitous alternative energy
    generation systems and the seamless integration
    of these systems into utility operation.
  • Market dynamics, for example, in the context of
    power routing transactions and regulatory issues

Distributed Real-Time Embedded Systems
  • Communication Networks
  • Connect computers, embedded systems sensors,
    actuators, controllers, signal processors,
  • Distributed Systems
  • Connectivity, programmability, scalability
  • Real-Time
  • Predictable timing of computation
  • Critical for real-time monitoring and control

Distributed Real-Time and Power
  • Distributed Real-Time Embedded systems provide
    underpinning of
  • Communication
  • Software Development
  • Critical for objectives
  • Situational awareness
  • Distributed software components monitor phase
    angles and other quantities of interest
  • Report to visualization centers, logging
  • Support cooperative work
  • On-line diagnostics
  • Off-line simulations, forensics
  • Distributed control
  • Automatically close the feedback loop

Short-Term Challenge Co-Simulation
  • Simulate jointly the computer network and the
  • Expertise
  • Computer Networks simulations (Prof. Liberatore)
  • Hybrid System simulations (Prof. Branicky)
  • Previous work
  • Ns2 and differential equation solver BLP03,
  • Oak Ridge National Labs, etc.
  • Future work
  • Co-simulation of computer networks and power
  • Integration with Modelica
  • Formulation of objectives and scenarios

Co-Simulation Methodology
Branicky, Liberatore, Phillips ACC03
Co-simulation of systems and networks
Medium-Term Challenges (I)
  • Real-Time Networked Control (I)
  • Close-feedback loop in real-time over a network
  • Network Quality-of-Service (QoS)
  • Prevent timing failures
  • E.g., fully-distributed QoS L04a
  • Allocation of network resources ABLP06
  • Depends on system requirements (stability,
  • Fully distributed, asynchronous, scalable
  • Dynamic and flexible
  • Optimization approach

Medium-Term Challenges (II)
  • Real-Time Networked Control (II)
  • Application adaptability
  • End-point adapts to timing failures L06
  • In-network synchronization (IEEE PTP) B06
  • Real-Time Secure Management

Sequence number
Medium-Term Challenges (III)
  • Software Engineering
  • Large-scale distributed real-time embedded
  • Functional scalability L04
  • Software development platforms and middleware
  • E.g., RT Corba and power applications
  • Multi-agent software systems ACKRNL03
  • Integration of software, protocols, and standards

  • Application benchmark
  • National Lambda Rail (or GENI)
  • NLR is planned to be capable of supporting both
    production and experimental networks.
  • Not a single network or a single test bed but
    facilities to build multiple networks and
    multiple test beds at all of layers 1-3 including
    optical, switched, and routed.
  • Goal is to have both persistent and flexible
  • Foster network research
  • Support QoS
  • Real-Time Overlay
  • Support end-to-end RT SR

  • Intelligent Grid
  • Distributed Real-Time Embedded Systems
  • Immediate need
  • Co-simulation
  • Long-term needs
  • Software Engineering
  • Networked Control
