The Smart Grid describes a next-generation electrical power system that is typified by the increased use of communications and information technology in the generation, delivery, and consumption of electrical energy worldwide.
IEEE Smart Grid hosts a series of complimentary webinars on varying aspects of grid modernization globally.

DER: Where to Start? With Who, What, When, Why? How to Build a ROI-Based Roadmap
Presented by: Amar Pradhan, Global Strategy Leader IBM Energy & Utilities

Thursday, May 4, 2017 | 1:00 – 2:00pm ET

New grid edge technologies are proliferating, and utilities must figure out how to leverage them, or get sidelined in areas of growth. Utility customers are installing rooftop solar, smart appliances, EVs, etc, outside the traditional purview of the utility or regulators. The mix of IT technologies and business models to optimally interact with these new customer sited resources is critical. What is needed is an expert system integrator who can assess the Utility’s ‘as is’ condition, and roadmap deployment of internal and external technologies that optimally bring the utility to the ‘to be’ scenario that allows them to most profitably leverage DER. IBM is such a system integrator, and this webinar will explain how to tactically create and deliver such a roadmap.

SMART Power Flow Controllers for Smart Grid Applications
Presented by: Kalyan K. Sen, Chief Technology Officer - Sen Engineering Solutions, Inc.

Friday, August 4, 2017 | 1:00 – 2:00pm ET

Increasing transmission capacity is essential to meet an increased demand of electricity, integration of renewable generation and so on. The power industry’s pressing need for the most economical ways to transfer bulk power along a desired path may be met by building new transmission lines, which is a long and costly process. Alternately, it may be quicker and cheaper to increase the available transfer capacity of the existing transmission lines with a power flow controller.
