The primary objective of this work is to define the system management
requirements for the Distributed Grid Intelligence (DGI) within the
Intelligent Energy/Fault Management (IEM/IFM). Requirements are
determined from and generated with the System Theory, Modeling and
Control (SMC) thrust for control algorithms, the Reliable and Secured
Communication (RSC) subthrust for communications, and with computer
science and engineering knowledge of system management of distributed
resources. The results of the project are implementations of
coordination algorithms for DGI within the testbed and requirements
for the overall project and demonstration thrust.
