Power Grids so Smart they Teach Themselves
Today’s power grids are based on radial topologies – they are one-way streets coming from a single point. Electricity is generated at a central source, then transmitted and distributed to consumers in a one-way outflow. Easy to understand and easier to manage.
But soon this simplistic configuration will no longer suffice. We expect in future that a large chunk of our energy will come from renewable sources, which are less predictable than current ones.
