Read Zayan Guedim explain how a new hybrid system combines classical machine learning techniques with quantum computation to optimize the management of the power grid on Edgylabs blog :
Strategically deployed across the grid, Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) are sensor devices that measure currents and voltages at a particular time. PMUs generate huge amounts of data that help utility companies monitor the power grid. The storage of these large datasets is already a challenge. Accessing and analyzing these datasets is also an issue that is only getting more complicated over time. In the U.S, the network of PMUs collects a cumulative total of 3 million gigabytes of data every two seconds.
