Electricity grids are undergoing unprecedented transformations to improve reliability, supply the increasing demand, and achieve decarbonization. These transformations require new ways of managing power systems by employing new measurement and communication techniques that have made future smart grids possible. We introduce a few of the recent trends and challenges in electricity grids and microgrids including optimal planning, demand response participation, and uncertainties due to renewable integration and electric vehicles. Some of the algorithms for control and planning of such systems and managing their inherent uncertainties are demonstrated. We show the application of Phasor Measurement Units (PMU) and cloud computation and planning for control of smart grids and microgrids.
