Operators and management will need an increase amount of intelligent support from power system SCADA to cope with the retrieval, filtering and interpretation of the relevant data, prior to defining the multi-process control tasks. Some examples of these tasks include optimal power flows, available transmission capacity, and transfer cost analyses. The management of the power grid data can be optimized by the hypermedia paradigm, which provides optimal support for many lifecycle phases of a system: commissioning, operator training, operation, and maintenance, to list a few. This paper focuses on the human-computer interaction (HCI) issues and provides hypermedia user-interface design guidelines for power applications.
