Big Data, Better Energy Management and Control Decisions for Distribution Systems in Smart Grid Conference Paper uri icon


  • © 2016 IEEE. Big Data is an essential element for energy management and control decision toward improved energy security, efficiency, and decreasing costs of energy use. Power distribution network is required to deliver electric energy reliability with reduced complexity and to be part of future smart grid. Therefore, in this paper Big Data related to the distribution generation systems will be discussed and illustrated within the context of smart grid principle. The paper work is to study the impact of adopting big data on energy management systems and to show the importance of the big data in strategic decision-making. The paper will highlight the Big Data issues and challenges associated with it in the energy management and control decisions in power distribution networks.
