Abstract

See full text

A real-time, wide-area power system monitoring and visualization system is provided, including comprising an application database adapted to contain a synchronized data object queue and configuration data; a web service; an event-triggered data archive service; an event database; and a smart client visualization application adapted to commence web service with the application database and the event database. A method of real-time, wide-area power system monitoring and visualization is also provided including receiving synchronized, real-time data objects in a first-in, first-out synchronized data object queue contained in an application database: requesting retrieval of the latest system-oriented data from the application database by a smart client visualization application; packaging the most recent system-oriented data into a lightweight data-interchange format; transmitting the most recent system-oriented data package to the client visualization system via a web service; and operating the smart client visualization application.
