PES Webinar - Big Data, Enterprise Data Management and IT/OT Convergence

IEEE Power & Energy Society Technical Webinar Series

Big Data, Enterprise Data Management and IT/OT Convergence

11 January 2018 • 2:00 pm Eastern

Presented by John McDonald, Smart Grid Business Development Leader, GE Grid Solutions

This Webinar:

In the past, Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) systems were kept fairly separate. IT was traditionally associated with back-office systems including accounting, billing, HR records, and customer data. OT was traditionally associated with field devices and the systems to monitor and control them such as Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and distribution management systems (DMS). These technologies were developed in silos because they were managed by separate departments that had different objectives. However, with technological advancements over the years, convergence of IT and OT has been taking place and there are quantifiable benefits to utility companies as well as customers.

PES Webinar - Energy Integration Assessment of Renewable-Dominated Regions Based on Stochastic Co-Optimization of G,T and Probabilistic Reserves

IEEE Power & Energy Society Technical Webinar Series

Energy Integration Assessment of Renewable-Dominated Regions Based on Stochastic Co-Optimization of G,T and Probabilistic Reserves
A South American Case Study

22 March 2018 • 10:00 am Eastern

Presented by Ricardo Cunha Perez, Operation and Planning specialist, PSR SOLUÇÕES E CONSULTORIA EM ENERGIA LTDA

Click Here for Details and to Register

This Webinar:

One of the most effective ways of managing the variability of renewable sources is through the portfolio effect of interconnecting regions with diverse production patterns. The economic assessment of these new regional interconnections requires the following enhancements of planning and operation analytical tools: (i) probabilistic simulations of regional system operation with hourly resolution; (ii) stochastic modeling of the spatial dependence of inflows and wind; (iii) calculation of probabilistic generation reserves; and (iv) because renewables usually affect the countries’ power flow patterns in a significant way, it becomes necessary to carry out integrated (co-optimized) generation, transmission and generation reserve planning studies.

The proposed IEEE PES Webinar includes: (a) description of the new multistage stochastic optimization methodologies for planning (Benders-based joint generation-transmission-probabilistic reserve) and operation (SDDP-based multistage G&T stochastic optimization with hourly resolution, including unit commitment and ramping); (b) description of the analytical schemes for evaluating multi-country probabilistic reserve sharing and other interconnection benefits; and (c) presentation of the recent South American interconnection study, sponsored by the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB), which includes nine countries with a 350 GW capacity (planned for 2036), 6-thousand node HV network and a surface area similar to the European Union (or the USA).

PES Webinar- Introduction to OpenDSS Parallel Machine - Parallel Processing with OpenDSS

IEEE Power & Energy Society Technical Webinar Series

Introduction to OpenDSS Parallel Machine – Parallel Processing with OpenDSS

May 5, 2018 • 10:00 am ET

Presented by: Dr. Davis Montenegro Martinez, Engineer/Scientist III, Electric Power Research Institute

Click Here for Details and to Register

This Webinar:

This webinar introduces the use of OpenDSS-PM (Parallel Machine), which is derived from EPRI’s open-source Distribution System Simulator, OpenDSS, to accelerate QSTS simulations using multi-core computers. It is important since a sequential simulation is a very computationally intensive process.

Modern computing architectures are characterized for introducing the concept of multi-core computing. This feature allows the performance of applications to be improved by distributing tasks on multiple cores to work concurrently. This feature in modern computers created the obvious need for taking OpenDSS into a parallel computing simulation suite.

OpenDSS-PM is used to implement temporal parallelization and Diakoptics based on actors as techniques to reduce the time required in QSTS. Faster QSTS simulations will provide distribution engineers with a more accurate understanding of the impacts of solar variability and high penetrations of PV on the distribution system.

IEEE Power & Energy Society Technical Webinar Series

IEEE PES Technical Webinar Series -Contribution to Bulk System Control and Stability by DER connected at Distribution Network

This Webinar:

TThe penetration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) within the Distribution Network (DN) increases worldwide. A DN with high penetration of DERs responds dynamically to system disturbances and therefore affects the overall power system stability and dynamic behavior. The webinar presents the main impacts of high DER penetration at the distribution grid on the bulk power system operation and describes basic elements of DER control in order to ameliorate these impacts. It also presents several case studies illustrating the DER ability to support transmission’s network control and stability. It describes aggregate and equivalent DER models that can be used for steady state and dynamic analysis studies, in order to assess their impact on the overall power system dynamic behaviour, including modeling and control of microgrids. Finally, the report highlights recommended extensions of Regulations and Network Codes in order to improve cooperation of Transmission and Distribution Network operation.
