Webinar Computing Substation March 27

IEEE Power & Energy Society Webinar Series

The Computing Substation

March 27, 2013  2:00 p.m. Eastern

Presented by Jeffrey Katz of IBM

Info and registration: http://www.ieee-pes.org/webinar-computing-substation-march-2013

This webinar:

The computing infrastructure of smart grid is important to its performance, reliability, and security. Just as the grid is not wired with parts from the local hardware store, the server and storage components of the smart grid need to meet the resiliency expected of critical infrastructure. It must not become a weak part of smart grid.

We will discuss how computing and databases interact in typical smart grid scenarios, how hardware system are architected just as software components are, and the ways hardware and software have to be en engineered system to be effective. Utilities should be expecting their computing systems to operate as a substation, that is, a series of pre-built, pre-interfaced components that function self-sufficiently, have a degree of fault tolerance, have internal adaptability, and can be remotely monitored.

Strategic Planning for Microgrids - Strategies and Tools

July 10, 2013  2:00 pm eastern

Presented by Hugo Bashualdo of Siemens PTI

Info and registration: http://www.ieee-pes.org/webinar-microgrids-planning-july-2013

This Webinar:

Planning the distribution systems strategically will lay a solid corner stone for a Smarter future.

When the integration of distributed energy resources increases, more and more distribution power systems may be capable of operating as a microgrid, with the ability to operate in parallel with the grid or as an island. The challenges that utility planning engineers are facing are like never before. Recent major storms in the US blacking out some of the biggest cities in the world are forcing government agencies and utilities to increase reliability and reduce peak demand at the same time.

Opportunities to electrify rural communities via microgrids are gaining significant interest. Before the detailed engineering design of any microgrid, a power system and economic planning study should be performed to determine the optimal techno economical specifications, i.e. location, type and size of devices, optimal operation methodologies, compliance with standards and regulatory agencies, and cost/benefit analysis etc.

Pes Webinar - Liquid Immersed Transformer Aug 2013

IEEE Power & Energy Society Webinar Series

A New Standard for the Modern Liquid-Immersed Transformer

August 22, 2013  2:00 pm eastern

Presented by Richard P. Marek of DuPont Energy Solutions

Info and registration: http://www.ieee-pes.org/webinar-immersed-transformer-august-2013

This webinar:

Today, state of the art computer programs have extracted about as much cost as possible in pursuit of competitive designs, while still maintaining the highest standard of quality and reliability. High-temperature in liquid-immersed transformer applications offers a new avenue to explore the possibilities of matching an application with optimized cost and is now one of the few opportunities available for a true step-change in design stategy.

High-temperature design has been around for many years operating on the fringe of the standards and lurking in the background. Since, almost by definition, the standards follow technology rather than lead the development, at some point a critical mass creates the need for a written document to structure and guide the future development of a new technology.

This presentation will discuss a newly published IEEE document that will finally standardize high-temperature liquid-immersed transformers. Complimentary to this new standard is the recently published IEEE document that defines the test procedures for determining the thermal class of an insulation system in a liquid dielectric medium.

Examples of typical and not-so-typical global applications for high-temperature liquid-immersed transformers will also be presented.

PES Webinar - Real Time Simulation and Hardware in the Loop Technologies Oct 2013

IEEE Power & Energy Society Webinar Series

Real Time Simulation and Hardware in the Loop Technologies 

October 16, 2013 12 pm eastern

Presented by Antonello Monti of RWTH Aachen University
 
 
This webinar:
 

The energy system is facing a period of significant transition. New technologies, particularly coming from the ICT world, are supposed to play a major role in the future. On the other hand, grids are critical infrastructures that cannot be used for testing purposes. It is then necessary to de-risk any new technology through a serious evaluation process that does not involve the grid itself.

In this respect, Real Time Simulation and Hardware in the Loop Technologies are emerging as a possible approach to define new processes for rapid insertion of new technologies.

This webinar will introduce the fundamentals of these technologies giving the audience the ability to appreciate the potential for the energy infrastructure. Particular focus is placed on studying the interaction between the power system and the communication infrastructure.

The webinar will also be enriched with concrete examples of applications to support different use cases scenarios. Most of these examples are inspired by on-going or just completed large international projects.

PES Webinar - Smart Grid Business Case Fault Circuit Indicators Nov 2013

IEEE Power & Energy Society Webinar Series

Making a Smart Grid Business Case - Fault Circuit Indicators

November 21, 2013  2:00 pm eastern

Presented by Aleksandar Vukojevic of Baltimore Gas and Electric

Info and registration: http://www.ieee-pes.org/webinar-fault-circuit-indicators-november-2013

This webinar:

 The advances in communications and technology, have resulted in ever increasing number of available DA applications. In order to investigate the effect of fault circuit indicators with remote communications on the distribution system reliability, BGE utilized these devices as part of its Smart Grid Pilot Program. One of the most challenging questions regarding FCIs is how many of these devices need to be installed per feeder, at what locatiions they should be placed, and what benefits could be expected. BGE has invented a new approach to determing the optimal location and optimum number of FCIs on the distribution feeder. In addition, the methodology provides the expected CAIDI values, cost-benefit analysis and financial analysis that helps the creation of the business case for the FCI implementation across the whole system. Based on the patented methodology, BGE has partnered with Gridiant, a software company that provides applications for electric utilities, which has developed commercial grade software that BGE will use in full scale FCI implementation.

WiP Webinar: Power Quality and Smart Grids

Date & Time: December 3, 2013, 11:00-12:00pm Eastern

Presenter(s): Math Bollen, Luleå University of Technology, Skellefteå, Sweden

Power quality concerns the interaction between the grid and its customers through voltage and current. The smart grid concerns the use of new technology and new ways of thinking to make the grid more cost-effective for example in coping with renewable electricity production.

There are a number of relations between power quality and smart grids:

  • New technology and new ways of thinking are able to mitigate power-quality problems in a more cost-effective way.
  • New technology might introduce new types of power-quality disturbances.
  • New technology and new ways of thinking are able to allow for higher penetration of, for example, renewable electricity production. This may in turn introduce new types of power-quality disturbances.

An overview and specific examples are given of all three relations. The presentation will finish with a vision for the future of research and development in power quality, as part of the smart grid.

PES Webinar - Big Data = Big Challenges for Big Substations and Big Assets

IEEE Power & Energy Society Webinar Series

Big Data = Big Challenges for Big Substations and Big Assets

February 27, 2014 2pm eastern

Presented by Jeff Golarz of LumaSense Technologies

Info and Registration: http://www.ieee-pes.org/webinar-big-data-big-substations-february-2014

This webinar:

Transmission and distribution substations and assets are under heavy stress and are increasing in age without quick relief in sight. Electrical demand continues to grow steadily every year with utilities unable to financially and physically keep up with replacement and expansion of assets. When you add the much talked about age of the utility workforce with their decades of expertise and knowledge, yet knowing they will be retiring very soon, you see a perfect storm developing. Utilities need to extend the life of their assets, and do so intelligently with automation to also compensate for the workforce that is aging and retiring. In order to accomplish this, more and more utilities are installing sensor technology on critical assets. The value of continuous online sensor monitoring on transmission and distribution systems has been well documented. Benefits of this monitoring include such things as asset optimization, enabling condition based maintenance, detecting component failure before it actually occurs and enabling safe dynamic loading.

PES Webinar - Strategic Telecom Planning for Smart Grid: Minimize CAPEX and OPEX, and Ensure Success

IEEE Power  Energy Society Webinar Series

Strategic Telecom Planning for Smart Grid:
Minimize CAPEX and OPEX, and Ensure Success

May 22, 2014 2 p.m eastern

Presented by: Amar Patel and Hugo Bashualdo of Siemens Power Technologies International

Info and Registration: http://www.ieee-pes.org/webinar-telecom-planning-smart-grid-may-2014

 

This Webinar:

One of the components that can make or break a Smart Grid (SG) deployment is the design of the underlying telecommunications network that’s used to support functions such as protection, control, real time operation, and SCADA.  An improper telecom strategy and design invariably leads to high O&M costs, reliability problems, network downtime, exorbitant capital spending, and reduced ability to extract maximum benefit and efficiency from the SG application.  In order to avoid these undesirable situations, a strategic telecom planning study should be performed as one of the earliest steps of any SG project.
  
The study should assess different communication technologies and architectures on the basis of: (1) coverage; (2) operational performance; (3) cost; (4) compliance with standards and regulatory agencies; and (5) security.  Consultants/engineers vary in their choice of different tools and methodologies to assess these items – with each leading to different degrees of accuracy in the analysis.  How can you ensure you take the right approach to telecom planning, and ensure the success of your Smart Grid project?

Managers and engineers involved with technology integration, distribution, asset management, and telecom will benefit from this webinar.
