This is what I was talking about in a previous post. If you think about the control systems as a feedback loop then they need to increase both the speed and sophistication of that loop on a continual basis. Just as we get monthly (or even more frequent) updates to our computers there will be regular incremental updates to the grid control systems. Larry M.

I think smart-grid revolution needs lot more push from the governments of the respective countries. I can only hope that in India government acts faster. I was surprised to see that a private consulting farm has already started working towards increasing the efficiency of the grids, which is good news. But I think smart-grid is still in the imagination of the people in India.

Eventually, technology will again evolutionize the grid (revolutionary it isn't), but the real question is: how long will it take? In the meantime, we still see massive blackouts in some sections of the country and we have to deal with "rolling brown-outs" in other areas. The technology is available, but the costs are very high and the infrastructure is slow to be updated.

I am generally weary of anything labled "Smart" these days. When it comes to individual liberty these so called "Smart" programs are usally anything but.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
