Online Optimization in Power Systems with High Penetration of Renewable Generation: Advances and Prospects

The increasing penetration of renewable generation and Internet-of-Things devices allowing for controllability of loads have led to the diminishing applicability of of-grained controllable loads in the power systems domain, and have redirected attention to online optimization methods.
