Researchers at Vanderbilt University, Washington State University, and North Carolina State University are working to reinvent and protect the U.S. power grid.
They will present their first solutions, including the Resilient Information Architecture Platform for Decentralized Smart Systems platform, this month at the ACM/IEEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS 2017) in Pittsburgh.
The goal is to build an underlying, open source software platform to support decentralized applications that boost the power grid's resilience and protect it from dangers.
In addition, the platform is designed to quarantine problems while the rest of the system runs normally and to permit seamless transitions among power sources as needed.
The new microgrid controller uses fog computing to calculate and monitor voltages and phase angles and employs inverters to change those when necessary.
