FW-HTF Research Objectives

The objective of this project is to enhance reliability and accuracy of decision making in the power system control room by proposing methodologies that systematically augment operator situational awareness by achieving the right balance between information maintenance and updating:

  1. Use a dynamic attentional control (DAC) framework to precisely identify the cognitive mechanisms that are good targets for decision support tools in a control room operations context,
  2. Augment cognitive performance of human operators during extreme events using advanced machine learning based decision support tools and an adaptive Human-Machine system,
  3. Advancing cognitive performance of human operators with improved training simulators for enhanced grid resiliency that allow operators to gain the most benefit from tools designed to provide the feedback needed to adapt decision making to fast changing system scenarios.
