An Energy Management System (EMS) must be able to identify mismatches between power demand and supply, lower power consumption for non-critical parts of the grid, divert power to higher priority areas for industrial output and national security, and be able to accomplish all of this in a few seconds.
A faster-than-real-time EMS must be capable of completing execution within a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) sample cycle, typically 5 seconds. The team at GEIRINA set out to achieve the seemingly impossible task that has eluded power system engineers for the past decade.
