METHOD, A SYSTEM, A SERVER, A CONTROL ELEMENT, A COMPUTER PROGRAM AND A COMPUTER PROGRAM PRODUCT FOR OPERATING A POWER GRID HAVING DECENTRALIZED CONTROL ELEMENTS
- Year: 2012
An exemplary method and apparatus are provided for operating a power grid that has decentralized control elements. The decentralized control elements are adapted to interact with each other, in particular by communication. At least a part of the power grid, a control element or the interaction between control elements, in particular the communication between control elements, is monitored. When a problem in at least a part of the power grid, the control element or the interaction between control elements, in particular a communication breakdown, is detected, a control element affected by the problem is triggered to work autonomously.

Disclosed embodiments provide methods and systems for the configuration of broadband over power lines. The configuration entails calculating a desired distance between nodes by measuring a noise floor on a power line, measuring a signal power level on the power line and determining the desired distance based on a target signal-to-noise ratio.
Feedback is received from a plurality of devices. External data is also received. Statistical patterns of the plurality of devices are determined based on the feedback. A policy is determined based on the statistical patterns, the feedback, and the external data. The policy may include a set of rules dictating the operation of each of the plurality of devices and reducing energy consumption at the plurality of devices. Control data based on the policy is transmitted to the plurality of devices. ...
A collaborative system that includes automatic monitoring and management of reflector/servers and clients. The reflectors are in a logical cluster although their physical locations may be anywhere in the world. Reflector to reflector performance and status is continuously monitored. If a reflector-to-reflector link goes down or is underperforming, the reflector cluster is rerouted to provide desired performance. Clients are monitored and provide information via the network to register/management...
