ChatGrid: A Revolutionary AI-Powered Tool to Transform Grid Management in the Energy Sector

‘Redefining Data Perspective: A Fresh Approach’

New technology developed by researchers at a Department of Energy (DOE) laboratory is set to revolutionize the way grid operators manage power systems. ChatGrid, a program that uses generative AI and advanced computer systems, allows operators to quickly retrieve information about the power grid through questions.

Shrirang Abhyankar, an optimization and grid modeling researcher at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), developed ChatGrid along with former PNNL intern Sichen Jin. The program will run on supercomputers capable of performing a billion billion computations per second, providing operators with high computing power to restore power quickly in case of disruptions.

ChatGrid also provides information on generation capacity, voltage, and power flow from clean energy sources across the grid. This technology could support the implementation of clean energy projects included in the Biden administration’s infrastructure bill. While ChatGrid is currently in the testing phase, it is expected to provide grid operators with a new way of accessing data that will enable them to make quick decisions and restore power more efficiently.
