Transactive systems that utilize economic signals (i.e., transactions) to accomplish overall control and cost management objectives are being considered as an approach for managing advanced distribution systems that integrate many market participants who own or operate distributed assets.

In this webinar, IEEE Smart Grid Expert Chris Irwin will discuss how using a 5-minute market model in the retail space can offer ancillary services in 4-second intervals.

Dr. Imre Gyuk

About the Speaker:

Chris Irwin currently leads efforts at the U.S Department of Energy in the development and application of transactive systems for providing control and coordination mechanisms to actively engage customer-owned and third-party assets within electric grid operations through transparent, competitive means. In addition to overseeing $1.5 B in smart projects supported through Recovery Act funds, Mr. Irwin actively works on advancing smart grid standards and interoperability protocols alongside NIST, FERC and other federal agencies in the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel and through other forums. Prior to joining the DOE, Mr. Irwin served as Director of Products at Eka Systems which included marketing and business development efforts within the electric energy sector, as well as natural gas and water infrastructure.
