Quality Assurance/Quality Control Engine for Power Outage Mitigation

The Challenge of Event Correlation for a Smart Grid Architecture Amidst Data Quality Issues
Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 1129)


Energy is a key driver of economic growth. A key thematic for distribution utilities has centered upon how to better capitalize upon existing available amounts of energy within an electrical grid. Pragmatic opportunities reside within the distribution system of the grid. By means of examining and validating assumed/purported key nodes as well as properly contextualizing actual key nodes for when expeditious fault location is needed, it is possible to enhance power outage mitigation as well as facilitate more expeditious recovery and restoration of energy. We introduce a Data Visualization Analytics System (DVAS), which leverages a Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) Engine to assist with correct identification of key nodes that have high impact on distribution utility performance indices, thereby directly affecting resiliency compliance decision-making within a Smart Grid and reporting to regulatory agencies.
