Chief Technologist describes for CIOReview magazine how ISO-NE can leverage cloud computing for big-data processing
ISO-NE is pioneering the use of cloud computing in the power industry
ISO New England’s Chief Technologist Eugene Litvinov is featured in the latest edition of CIOReview magazine. In his article, Cloud Computing for Advanced Power System Monitoring, Litvinov discusses the ISO’s exploration of cloud computing to reliably, securely, and cost-effectively manage large volumes of high-resolution data generated by the region’s new phasor measurement units (PMUs). The data that must be processed from these and other new technologies give grid operators unprecedented view of real-time grid performance, but require innovative approaches to keeping the lights on. Print copies of the magazine will be out in July. Read Working toward a Smarter, Greener Grid to learn about other high-tech initiatives underway at ISO New England.
