EPRI’s colleagues across the AI and electric power industries are inventing tools and technologies to help improve safety, efficiency, and reliability. We’re collecting and sharing success stories centered around AI innovations and use cases to share. These stories help explain how we, as an industry, are moving the dial on technologies, advancing the state of the art, and shaping the future of the energy industry together. Here’s a recent item shared by Dominion Energy:

Dominion Energy needed to efficiently and cost-effectively leverage its data for grid management. To do this, the ET Operations Engineering Support team partnered with startup company PingThings to leverage their PredictiveGrid™ technology, a cloud-hosted data management and analytics platform for time series data.  PredictiveGrid™  created a home for Dominion’s collected synchrophasor data, captured from thousands of Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) and consisting of high-speed/high accuracy voltage and current magnitude, phase angle, and frequency data. The data is being made easily and quickly accessible across Dominion to enable rapid prototyping and experimentation of new transmission grid analytics.

Dominion believes this new competency to be a cornerstone of their transformation to a green energy future. The most noteworthy outcome has been the development and utilization of a small signal analysis toolbox for assessing the design and performance of new technologies including inverter-based resources and Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) devices. In 2021, Dominion plans to employ contemporary artificial intelligence tools to develop competencies around data driven planning, also with a focus on renewable integration.
