Abstract

In this paper we present a visualization system for the real-time monitoring of Smart Grids. In particular, it supports the control room operators of electric grids with large amounts of distributed power generation. As measurements are continuously read from connected Smart Meters, an expert system performs a classification of these events to relieve the operator from the manual inspection of irrelevant and trivial information items. A coordinated, multiple view environment displays the electric grid model which is annotated with status indicators. This gives the operator both a reasonable overview on the entire system, but also enables him to inspect specific parts in detail. Other sources of information such as ICT coverage and weather conditions are included to provide additional context. The visualization system thus provides monitoring and control support for operators to keep the grid in a stable condition.
