Impact of Plug-in Vehicles on Power System StabilityV2G power transactions are going to be an integrated part of the smart grid. This study shows how sudden charging and discharging of the SmartParks will impact the power system stability and demonstrates the potential of a wide-area controller to mitigate the impacts.

Scalable Integrated Situational Awareness System for Smart Grid

Bipul Luitel and Ganesh Kumar Venayagamoorthy

In a smart grid, monitoring of system variables such as voltages and speed deviations of generators is important for assessing its stability, and making proper control decisions. Development of wide area monitoring system is, hence, important for situational awareness; especially in a smart grid where integration of renewable resources, distributed generation and bidirectional power flows can lead to instabilities if proper control action is not taken at the right time, place and context.

Emergent Intelligence in Cellular Neural Networks

Bipul Luitel and Ganesh K. Venayagamoorthy

Emergent Intelligence in Cellular Neural NetworksIntelligence in CNN emerges from a group of cells that are learning subsystems, all of which either utilize the same or  a different learning method, that either adapt themselves in synchrony with the other subsystems or independent of the others in their own pace. Intelligence in CNN emerges over time through progressive learning and adaptation of these distributed interacting subsystems represented as cells.
