PES Webinar - Visualization and Analytics for high penetration of Distributed Energy Resources (VADER)
IEEE Power & Energy Society Technical Webinar Series
Visualization and Analytics for high penetration of Distributed Energy Resources (VADER)
July 6, 2018 • 1:30 pm EST
Presented by: Sila Kiliccote, Staff Scientist and Managing Director, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University
Distribution grid is going through a transformation. This transformation is driven partly due to adoption of DERs at the grid’s edge, increasing load flexibility and active control devices, and partly the growing availability of data from smart meters. In this webinar, we will discuss a new data analytics platform and open source analytics for better planning the distribution grid. The talk will cover the growing need for integrated platforms, the software architecture implemented for VADER, explain the choices that were made, and the top analytics developed and under deployment.
