Mission Statement

To understand, anticipate, and respond to current and future Smart Grids’ control needs and opportunities in a broad array of areas, including:

  1. TC on Smart Grids (TC-SG) convenes and works with systems and controls colleagues on the greatest smart grid challenges by providing technical resources, collaboration opportunities, and partnerships for numerous researchers world-wide, who are engaged in smart grids, in academic institutions, government laboratories, and industrial companies.
  2. We exist to highlight controls activities and opportunities in smart grids to the controls community:
    • The power grid 2.0 presents the greatest potential opportunity for the controls community to make a significant societal contributions across the world.  Challenges faced by the power grid are much more systems problems than they are traditional power problems.  
    • Control systems are needed across broad temporal, geographical, and industry scales—from devices to power-system-wide, from fuel sources to consumers, from utility pricing to demand response, and so on. 
    • With increased deployment of feedback and communication, opportunities arise for reducing consumption, for better exploiting renewable sources, and for increasing the reliability and performance of the transmission and distribution networks.  At the same time, however, closing loops where they have never been closed before, across multiple temporal and spatial scales, creates control challenges as well.
  3. We exist to be ambassadors of controls to the large energy and power systems communities
    •   Feedback, optimization, estimation, dynamics, stability... these and other control system concepts are core to smart grid technology.  In many ways, the smart grid is a control problem!
