Project: T184700 #5177

The objective of this project is to provide mathematical details about various statistical methods used for working with big data in engineering and operational applications. The information should be presented in a well-structured report with technical theory explanations, specific equations, methods for application, and supporting examples where applicable.

Examples of large data sets can be provided to the contractor so as to illustrate concepts using real-world utility power system data.

Optionally, the contractor may also supply other media to accompany the report such as excel spreadsheets, software calculators, presentations, etc...

Please note, this project is NOT meant to supply information about commercially available software platforms for conducting statistical analysis. It is meant to provide detailed mathematics and examples of ways to analyse big data.  It is also NOT meant to explore customer account data or any other corporate financial data where privacy or security might be a concern.
