The development of smart grids worldwide aims at tackling various challenges facing power system operation and planning due to increased penetration of many new technologies of diversified properties. On the one hand, system operators and many other participants have to deal with increased uncertainties and risks involved in daily operation and planning activities. On the other hand, applications of many new metering and measurement devices, capable of closely monitoring and sensing grid operation in real time, result in overwhelming amount of measurement data of high precision and resolution. By far, how to make the best use of the massive data remains quite a challenging task facing power system researchers and practitioners .
