Risk Dashboards for Power Grids

Like the idea of a risk dashboard (or graph) to address this kind of problem.

Risk Dashboard Could Help the Power Grid Manage Renewables
An ARPA-E project uses data modeling to help power grid operators deal with the winds of change

Representations of power flows and/or line temperatures in a realistic but synthetic power grid under stress.

The Unruly Power Grid

Quebec's wind farms can produce bursts of power to stabilize AC grid frequency
Can Synthetic Inertia from Wind Power Stabilize Grids?
To fully embrace wind and solar power, grid operators need to be able to predict and manage the variability that comes from changes in the wind or clouds dimming sunlight.

One solution may come from a $2-million project backed by the U.S. Department of Energy that aims to develop a risk dashboard for handling more complex power grid scenarios.

Grid operators now use dashboards that report the current status of the power grid and show the impacts of large disturbances—such as storms and other weather contingencies—along with regional constraints in flow and generation. The new dashboard being developed by Columbia University researchers and funded by the Advanced Research Projects Agency–Energy (ARPA-E) would improve upon existing dashboards by modeling more complex factors. This could help the grid better incorporate both renewable power sources and demand response programs that encourage consumers to use less electricity during peak periods.  ... "
