Real-Time Power and Intelligent Systems (RTPIS) Laboratory

Situational Intelligence Laboratory

This is a unique research and rapid prototyping/customizing laboratory for new real-time situational intelligence (SI) and intelligent control technologies for electric power control center deployment. Algorithms and methods for real-time situational awareness (SA) and intelligence, and visualizations for control centers are developed using in-house and third party software. The laboratory is focused on applications for generation, transmission, and distribution systems and microgrid control center operations. RTPIS Lab control center has system operator workstations besides the large control room displays. Many of the applications are parallelized for implementation on Clemson Palmetto cluster. Data is transmitted using a dedicated (~10-mile) high-speed fiber optic connection between the RTPIS Lab and the Clemson data center.
