November 24, 2023 @ 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM IST

Title:  Physics-Aware AI for Enabling Grid Resiliency



Dr. Anurag K Srivastava

Raymond J. Lane Professor and Chairperson,

Lane Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering

Director, Smart Grid REsearch and Analytics Lab (SG-REAL)

West Virginia University, Morgantown, WV, USA

Date: 24th November 2023, 3 pm


Venue: MMCR, EE Dept, IISc




Availability of data from massive sensors deployment in the cyber-physical electric grid enables new monitoring and control applications.  Advancement in artificial intelligence (AI) provides an opportunity to develop data-driven technique utilizing these datasets. Some possible applications include, early alarm and diagnosis, predicative analysis, distributed and decentralized control. New applications need to consider physics-induced limits and high-performance requirement in a dynamic environment. Availability of additional sensor data brings its own challenges including data anomalies, real time processing, data fusion, data management and cyber-security management.  Differentiating between data anomalies, cyber events and physical system events can be very challenging due to the similar signatures. This talk will focus on limits of AI for dynamic power grid applications, example of Physics-Aware Machine Learning (PAAI) applications to enhance situational awareness, and associated challenges and opportunities for enabling power grid resiliency.
