Big Data Analytics For Smart Power Networks

Big Data Analytics For Smart Power Networks

An IET Control and Automation Network and Brunel University London Event

Smart power networks require digital technology that enables two-way data communications to support new interactions and services with customers and the efficient management of key assets for the benefit of customers. For smart to succeed in the processing and storage of scalable volumes of data and our capability to analyse and use the findings is paramount.

Smart power networks will consist of controls, computers, automation, new technologies and equipment which, when integrated together, will enable the electricity grid to respond rapidly to dynamic changes in supply and demand signals.

This full-day seminar looked at the applications of big data analytics within smart power networks and its associated challenges, the emergence of smart grid technologies to capture, analyse and visualise big data, and the future trends and research themes.

The IET.TV team were on hand to capture the event so please take a look at what both industry and academia were saying on this important topic.
