    A major drawback of current dynamic security assessment (DSA) software used to analyze the transient and dynamic responses to a large number of potential power system disturbances in a transient time frame is the long simulation time required to complete the calculations, making it impractical for real-time applications. This paper describes an attempt to dramatically reduce the time for DSA calcu... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the different initiatives that utility decision makers have set in place to address the vulnerability of the US power grid to physical and cyber attacks. One of the efforts to enhance grid security is EPRI's Infrastructure Security Initiative (ISI), which was designed to develop both prevention countermeasures and enhanced recovery capabilities. To protect against cyber attack... View full abstract»

    Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and control systems are subject to vulnerabilities that did not exist prior to deregulation of the electric power industry. This is due to a variety of factors, including business needs brought on by deregulation and a movement toward using common operating systems and networking protocols for SCADA and control systems. The rise of organized crimina... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the value of price forecasting in the electricity market during bidding or hedging against volatility. When bidding in a pool system, the market participants are requested to express their bids in terms of prices and quantities. Since the bids are accepted in order of increasing price until the total demand is met, a company that is able to forecast the pool price can adjust i... View full abstract»
