1. A system for providing real-time analysis of an electrical system under management, comprising:

  • a data acquisition component communicatively connected to a sensor configured to provide real-time data output from an element of the electrical system;

    a virtual system modeling engine configured to generate predicted data output for the element of the electrical system, wherein the virtual system modeling engine is configured to use a virtual system model to generate the predicted data; and

    an analytics engine communicatively connected to the data acquisition system and the virtual system modeling engine, the analytics engine configured to monitor and analyze a difference between the real-time data output and the predicted data output, wherein the analytics engine is configured to cause the virtual system model to be calibrated based on the real-time data, and wherein, if the difference is less than an alarm condition value but greater than a set value, the analytics engine is configured to generate a virtual system model calibration request and send the request to a calibration engine, wherein the calibration engine is configured to receive the calibration request from the analytics engine and update operational parameters of the virtual system modeling engine and the virtual system model upon receipt of the calibration request.
