  • New Milestones: Smart Cities and Executive Advisory Committees [Leader's Corner]
    Reports on PES initiatives to support and promote its Smart Cities Initiative. In 2017 under the New Initiatives and Outreach Program to power the future. One is the formation of an Executive Advisory Committee to support the IEEE Power & Energy Society’s Board of Directors. The other is the creation of a strategic plan for IEEE ’s Smart Cities initiative. Both achievements will contribute to the IEEE ’s overall mission to advance technology for humanity as well as creating new opportunities for our members to contribute to that mission and, in turn, derive more value from their affiliation with the IEEE . Powerful forces are driving a significant transformation of the electric grid.

  • Energy & Distribution: What's Next in These Management Systems [Guest Editorial]
    The articles in this special section examine state-of-the-art developments in energy management systems (EMSs) and distribution managements system (DMSs) over the last few years, contrast such developments against the original design from approximately 50 years ago for EMSs and 40 years ago for DMSs, and discuss changes needed for the years to come.

  • Off the Beaten Path: Resiliency and Associated Risk
    Large-scale electric grids remain an indispensable critical infrastructure, and the vast majority of people will continue to receive most of their electric energy from such grids for decades to come. The impacts of the loss of a portion of the electric grid range from minor inconveniences for most users when the outage is on a small scale and short lived to potentially catastrophic situations when the blackout covers a large region for a long duration. Since the inception of the first electric grids in the 1880s, much has been done to reduce the likelihood and extent of blackouts. However, they cannot be totally eliminated, and there is usually a tradeoff between reduced blackout risk and increased cost. The focus of this article is on costeffective ways to reduce this risk and, consequently, improve resiliency.

  • A Smarter Grid Operation: New Energy Management Systems in China
    The power grid in China has been developing rapidly with the improvement of the national economy and standard of living. By the end of 2016, China's installed power generation capacity had reached 1,646 GW . Currently, China?s power grid has the largest installed capacity, the highest voltage level [1,000 -kV ultra-high voltage (UHV)], and the largest annual power generation in the world. The operation of such a large-scale power grid poses many major challenges for electric power control centers.

  • Electricity System Reform Requirements: A Novel Implementation to Grid Management and Control
    After the 2011 large-scale earthquake and nuclear accident in Japan, the Japanese government held a nationwide discussion to determine how the traditional energy policy and electricity system should be reformed to.

  • Control Center Designs: New Functions and Challenges for the Transmission System Operator
    Transmission System Operators (TSOs) are facing major challenges and becoming key players in the transition of the power industry that is enabling the growth of renewable intermittent energy sources. The energy market no longer guarantees long-term revenue when decisions result in building more grid assets. Finally, customer behavioral changes and new energy delivery use requirements appear for the system operator.

  • Closed-Loop Volt/Var Optimization: Addressing Peak Load Reduction
    Energy Management Systems (EMSs) were introduced in the vertically organized power industry five decades ago. After the restructuring of the power industry and the founding of the electricity market, four more-orless independent players appeared in this market-generation, transmission, distribution, and consumption. This was a strong driver for the introduction of new tools to manage very complex distribution-consumption elements of power systems. The transfer of an EMS from the transmission to the distribution environment was not possible due to the different natures and operation criteria of these two types of grids. Therefore, developing distribution management systems (DMSs) proved to be necessary.

  • From AlphaGo to Power System AI: What Engineers Can Learn from Solving the Most Complex Board Game
    Since its early development in the 1950s, artificial intelligence (AI) has been studied to mimic the function of human brains in solving science and engineering problems. Despite alternating bust and boom periods, AI has consistently progressed with a number of development milestones such as evolutionary algorithms, neural networks, and deep learning. For many AI test applications, the game of Go has been long considered one of the hardest problems and the most difficult among all major board games for AI to solve or mimic the way that the human brain functions.

  • Taking on the Dark Side: Public Power & the Regulation of Private Utilities [History]
    Decades before the New York Power Authority (NYPA) delivered its first power in 1958, the company helped shape the future of American energy generation and distribution as far west as Washington State and to the southern reaches of the Tennessee Valley. NYPA's significance today remains much greater than the low-cost electricity that it generates from its St. Lawrence and Niagara hydropower plants (and 14 smaller facilities, some driven by natural gas and oil). The exquisite hydro plant in Figure 1 symbolizes the contribution of regulation and public power to the electric power industry. In Figure 2, the seeming insignificance of the dam, dividing sky from water, is symbolic of how regulation and public power helped balance the creative tension between public interest and private profit. Indeed, when New York Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) created the NYPA in the spring of 1931, he aimed to make it a yardstick to measure the early investor-owned utilities (IOUs) mostly controlled by J.P. Morgan's "holding companies," which dominated the nation's power providers.

  • Is IT Ready for Them?: Future Energy & Distribution Management Systems [In My View]
    Discusses the market and development of power distribution energy resource systems (DERs). A huge game changer for utilities and possibly market operators will be the need to gain visibility and potentially control of hundreds of thousands of DERs. DERs can, and will, include photovoltaic (PV) generation, electric vehicles (EVs), demand response (DR), combined heat and power, storage, small-scale wind, and other technologies. Some might say that this is the province of a distributed energy management system (DERMS), but a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system with applications by any other name is an energy management system (EMS)/ distribution management system (DMS)/ DERMS or even a battery energy management system.
