Today's power systems are suffering from ever-increasing computational burdens in sustaining the expanding communities and deep integration of renewables, as well as managing gigantic volumes of data accordingly. These unprecedented challenges call for transformative analytics to support the resilient operations of power systems. Recently, the swift growth of quantum computing techniques has ignited new hopes of revolutionizing power system computations. Quantum computing harnesses quantum mechanisms to solve traditionally intractable computational problems, which may lead to ultra-scalable and efficient power grid analytics. This talk will discuss the emerging quantum computing techniques in power systems. The speaker will give a comprehensive overview of existing quantum-engineered power analytics from operational perspectives, including static analysis, transient analysis, stochastic analysis, optimization, stability, and control. Relevant quantum algorithms, their benefits and limitations, hardware implementations, and recommended practices will be discussed. If time permits, we will also discuss quantum networking techniques for ensuring the cybersecurity of power systems in the quantum era.
