# Projects:2017s1-196 New Computational Methods for the Super Smart Grid

# Introduction

This project will explore the application of geometric algebra and multi-complex methods to solve planning and power quality problems in the Super Smart Grid. This project also demonstrates the reason and the motivations why we start this new computational method for the super smart grid. Some relative background information, such as the Geometric Algebra and the classic theory of power theory has been given. It also gives the limitation and constraints about this project. Readers can see the Clifford functions and the conventional theories, with the exploration of the Clifford Toolbox and the circuit analysis.
