The power system is undergoing a revolutionary change such as the increasing popularity of renewable energy, a complex network with large data communication, and numerous power equipment with two-way energy flow. In order to promote the revolution of electric power production and consumption, it is more and more urgent to build a clean, low-carbon, safe, efficient, and intelligent power system. Meanwhile, computational intelligence (e.g., Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence) matures and becomes ubiquitous, which allows things to become smarter, more reliable, and more autonomous. In this talk, the speaker will talk about his work on how to develop autonomous Internet-of-Things (A-IoT) based on computational intelligence to realize a smarter and more reliable status-monitoring system for the power industry. Last but not the least, the speaker will share his insight for the research direction of A-IoT in future innovation.
