Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming more and more popular and it has made its way also in Electrical Energy Industry. Nevertheless, most power engineers haven’t learned these methods at the University. Therefore, I feel the obligation to explain basic concepts and buzzwords to the power engineering community.
First of all, AI became so popular due to the huge effectiveness of deep learning especially in the field of: computer vision; natural language processing; and speech recognition.
What is interesting is that these models that work very well in computer vision or natural language processing can be used with slight modifications for modeling time series data. And in the energy industry, we are dealing with time series data most of the time, therefore we can conclude that new advances in AI also bring new approaches to the energy industry.
