Some applications of expert systems to power system control are explored. It is shown how they can be used to alleviate the burden on the operators during emergency periods. To this end, the design and implementation of two applications are presented: an intelligent alarm processor, and a program for the diagnosis of system faults. The special requirements that energy management systems place on expert systems are identified.
