Exploring Electric Transmission Operation with Cognitive Work Analysis Models
Cognitive Engineering & Decision Making
DescriptionElectric power plants are regarded as complex socio-technical systems as they incorporate a wide amount of tasks and dynamic data that needs to be monitored continuously. This study investigated the work environment of electric power transmission and the related control tasks performed by the system operators. These findings shall be incorporated into the design of an ecological interface to improve Situation Awareness, reduce cognitive workload, and especially support novice operators in training.
