Developing Smarter Smart Grids

Smart grids — power grids that adapt to changes in demand and reconfigure as needed to avoid overloads and other problems can reduce energy costs, help avoid blackouts and deter cyber attacks.

They also pose new challenges. As power generation — and the communication and information processing associated with it — shifts from centralized power stations to distributed, heterogeneous systems, massive amounts of sensor data from stations must be transmitted efficiently and effectively analyzed in real time.
