IEEE: The expertise to make smart grid a reality

India: smart steps it can take

Publication: Intelligent Utility
Issue: August 2, 2012

American grid expert weighs in

Yesterday I plunged into the speculation around the blackout of mind-boggling scale in India. For the columnist, the formula runs: courage + recklessness = just enough knowledge to be dangerous. I suggested that the upshot was the need to make a greater effort to decentralize and add distributed resources and automation. Read more


Toward 2 Way Powerflow on the Smartgrid

Publication: The Energy Collective
Issue: December 5, 2011

In the rush to realize some of the Smart Grid’s promise today, there looms the risk ofminimizing or at least delaying some of its long-term potential good.

Rushing the smart grid

Publication: FierceSmartGrid
Issue: November 09, 2011

Some of the smart grid's most powerful benefits -- reducing carbon footprint, costs and likelihood of blackouts -- demand growing into a model of two-way power flow, increased deployment of energy-storage technologies and accommodation of more varied sources of energy.

"Thinking machines" needed to power smart grid

Plans to develop the "smart" grid"--a system that uses intelligent computer networks to manage electric power--cannot succeed without the creation of new "thinking machines" that can learn and adapt to new situations, from power outages along the grid to fluctuations in the power supply, according to IEEE's Ganesh Kumar Venayagamoorthy, a power engineering expert and professor at Missouri University of Science and Technology, in an article published in the latest issue of IEEE's Smart Grid newsletter.

Boosting Electricity Reliability and Availability via Microgrids

Publication: The Energy Collective
Issue: Sept 7

In addition to reducing carbon footprint, empowering customers to more cost-efficiently manage their energy usage and fueling new business opportunities, the Smart Grid offers tremendous promise in terms of improving the reliability and availability of electricity service. Increased reliance on “microgrids” is one way how. Read More

Smart Grid Needs Energy Efficiency

Publication: Electric Light & Power

by Russell Lefevre, IEEE Fellow

A recent report by The Shpigler Group released by the Utilities Telecom Council indicates energy usage attributable to electric vehicles (EVs) could rise 1,700 percent by 2030. Read More

SAE/IEEE ‘combo coupler’ offers flexible accessibility to AC and DC charging

Publication: GM-Volt

Date: August 16, 2011

A new “combo connector” to charge battery propelled automobiles is being rapidly developed based on a collaboration between the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE.) Read More

IEEE Unveils Redline Versions of Standards to Compare Old and New Standards

Date: August 15, 2011

Publication: InfoTech

The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA), a technical professional association dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity, has announced the general availability of IEEE Redline Versions of Standards, which provides a way to compare changes between an active standard and the previous approved version.

IEEE ’surprising’ smart grid findings won’t surprise rural readers

Publication: Connected Planet

Date: August 16, 2011

The headline of a recent IEEE press release references “surprising smart grid early adopters.” But rural readers won’t be surprised to learn that those early adopters are small electric power cooperatives in sparsely populated rural areas. Read More

The Smart Grid’s Cyber-Security Questions

Publication: The Energy Collective
Issue: August 3, 2011

The stakes are steep. The challenge is nuanced and evolving. And, at this point, there are
at least as many as questions as there are answers about how the job should be carried
out.

Together, those factors make cyber-security one of the most talked-about topics in the
Smart Grid conversation worldwide. Read
