A Service-Oriented Architecture for Electric Power Transmission System Asset Management
In electric power transmission systems, the assets include transmission lines, transformers, power plants and support structures. Maintaining these assets to reliably deliver electric energy at low prices is critical for a nation’s growth and development. Towards this end, we describe a novel service-oriented architecture for sensing, information integration, risk assessment, and decision-making tasks that arise in operating modern high-voltage electric power systems. The proposed framework integrates real-time data acquisition, modeling, and forecasting functionalities provided by relatively autonomous, loosely coupled entities that constitute the power industry to determine operational policies, maintenance schedules and facility reinforcement plans required to ensure reliable operation of power systems.
