This subcommittee will bring together leaders from industry, academia, and government and meet regularly (both face-to-face meetings and Web-based conference calls) to define the architectural, computational, and practical challenges and opportunities brought by the emerging big data in the smart grid. The initial discussion will focus on the standards, management, and analytics of big multi-domain multi-resolution data (PMUs, SCADA, Weather, GIS, etc.) for power grid operations. Big Data initiative in the US and throughout the world has provided a unique window of opportunity for improving the analytical methods in power system operations. The proposed subcommittee will serve as a professional society hub to enable collective efforts towards defining a big data-driven grid operation roadmap.
