Abstract

Power systems have been through different challenges and technological innovations in the last years and are rapidly evolving into digital systems through the deployment of the smart grids concept. Producing large amounts of data, power systems can benefit from the application of big data analytics which can help leveraging the optimization processes going on in power grids nowadays. The whole value of chain of electric power can benefit from the application of big data techniques. This paper presents a short overview of possible applications and challenges that still need to be considered for this synergy to grow. Under the framework of an H2020 funded project named BigDataOcean, a case study will be described, showing how a data-driven approach can foster the development of offshore renewable sources using the example of wave energy.
