“Providing for every contingency possible in a network like this, serving more than 65 million nodes, it’s a large and nasty problem. And it is one that has to be solved every ten minutes.”

Shanbag, Associate Professor in Penn State University’s Department of Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering, described the challenge facing a team of Penn State researchers who have been selected to help “modernize and reimagine the United States’ power grid” through a U.S. Department of Energy-sponsored competition.
More details about the grid modernization challenge are available through Penn State News.
