This paper proposes a vision of next-generation monitoring, analysis, and control functions for tomorrow's smart power system control centers. The paper first reviews the present control center technology and then presents the vision of the next-generation monitoring, analysis, and control functions. The paper also identifies the technology and infrastructure gaps that must be filled, and develops a roadmap to realize the proposed vision. This smart control center vision is expected to be a critical part of the future smart transmission grid.
