Abstract:   Demand for more energy, clean energy, and low-cost energy drives the need for innovation in the power sector. This is most clear in power generation, transmission and use. This requires integration across many time scales (seconds to years) and component scales (1/2 continent to individual appliances). We discuss how high-performance computing and advanced modeling, simulation, and analysis can tackle key component problems in grid design and management. These include renewable power integration, non-generational options (e.g., storage or microgrids), scale-up of pilot results, and real-time state estimation. In each case, specific challenges can be addressed through approaches or sets of approaches that include parallelization, optimizing how the problem is posed computationally, and coupling increasingly complicated system models.
