The need for reliable, powerful, and clean power generation in power systems is becoming more importance. This need requires geographically-distributed power systems to be integrated as a single entity where among the main features of this integration are large data base and computing intensive. Hence the current power systems are not able to handle this huge datasets required for that integration, Grid Computing is a gateway to virtual storage media and processing power. This paper describes the research work on why grid computing is needed for power systems, what are the major challenges and problem to implement grid computing into power systems, and how grid computing can be utilized to fulfil the requirement for efficient power generation.
