In recent months, we at the Laboratory for Intelligent Integrated Networks of Engineering Systems have been arguing for “Enterprise Control” in support of the future developments of the electricity grid. In other words, the power grid’s primary, secondary and tertiary control must be addressed simultaneously to achieve both reliability as well as economic objectives. These arguments have been presented in various forums. The most recent of these is an extensive literature review entitled “The Need for Holistic Assessment Methods for the Future Electricity Grid” authored by Prof. Amro M. Farid and Dr. Aramazd Muzhikyan. Prof. Farid presented this work at the 2013 GCC CIGRE conference held in Abu Dhabi on November 18-20.
