About this episode

As the electricity generation landscape transforms at a breakneck pace, the techniques engineers use to maintain a high performance in the electricity grid are struggling to keep up. Through a new study, Dr Hashem Nehrir and several of his former students at Montana State University delve into a variety of potential solutions, which have been presented by global research teams over the past two decades. Through an advanced algorithm, they have now brought together the findings of these studies and present a new grid architecture that could ensure our electricity infrastructures remain resilient well into the future.
