Abstract

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop a new software tool for viewing real-time electrical data for the energy industry. The purpose of this project is to allow an advanced visualization environment to be used with real-time power system data as input. Existing product will be decoupled from off-line power flow cases and generalize the visualization links so that any real-time database can be linked to the visualization objects. The end result will be a software product that will allow any user with secure access to view real-time power system data from any Windows PC with a TCP/IP connection to the Internet.
