This Webinar:

The presentation will describe the Big Data technologies evaluated, selected, and deployed (e.g., a hybrid SQL/NOSQL graph database, JSON converters, semantic preprocessing), and will include a live demo of the natural language search capability that researchers can use to find models of interest, by posing natural language queries such as:

  • Search for models with greater than 5,000 buses with over 10,000 miles of total line length of 69kV and above
  • Search for GridLab models that have over 10 PV loads on a single 4KV circuit
