Focus on Strategic Projects:

  • Big Data, particularly integration framework of GIS and GPS;
  • Synchrophasors and synchronized sampling technology for T&D applications;
  • Flexible loads, including on-site and distributed generation, and energy storage;
  • Renewables forecast with focus on solar and wind generation at different scales;
  • Future whole sale ancillary service products and retail market participation strategies;
  • Predictive control and protection with real-time and operations planning implementations;
  • Cyber-physical security with emphasis in interactions between different critical infrastructures.
