An intelligent grid computing architecture is proposed and developed for transient stability constrained total transfer capability evaluation of future smart grid. In the proposed intelligent grid computing architecture, a model of generalized compute nodes with `able person should do more work` feature is presented and implemented to make full use of each node. A timeout handling strategy called conditional resource preemption is designed to improve the whole system computing performance further. The architecture can intelligently and effectively integrate heterogeneous distributed computing resources around Intranet/Internet and implement the dynamic load balancing. Furthermore, the robustness of the architecture is analyzed and developed as well. The case studies have been carried out on the IEEE New England 39-bus system and a real-sized Chinese power system, and results demonstrate the practicability and effectiveness of the intelligent grid computing architecture.
