Quantum Computing

Quantum Computing

Computation has always been central to power system management and control. As grid operations become more complex, using existing mathematics on more powerful computers is not a practical approach to address the broad new class of complexities, especially the uncertainties of intermittent renewable generation and new types of loads. Meeting the needs of the grid of the future will require new classes of models and algorithms. The striking processing power of quantum computers provides an opportunity to address many of the computational needs of the grid of the future.
