Title: Qualitative Description of Electric Power System Future States

Abstract

This work proposes a common basis for the simulation and evaluation of transactive systems. Using existing literature, a qualitative survey of the future states of the electric power system was conducted. Forces exerting influence on the state of the power system, called “drivers,” were identified. Specific future states in the literature were identified and classified into five general groups, and the effects of twelve previously identified drivers were assessed for each individual future state in the literature. Relationships between the five general future states were defined through a Venn diagram and system evolutions were demonstrated through notional narratives and corresponding paths through the diagram. A relational measure of the complexity and extent of the change implied by each future state was also created.
