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.

Application of Microgrids and Distributed Generation
Presented by John McDonald

Thursday, May 12, 2016 | 1:00pm – 2:00pm ET

This webinar, by John McDonald, Director, Technical Strategy & Policy Development at GE Grid Solution, will familiarize participants with a vision for the future of microgrids and distributed generation. This will include a discussion of key industry/societal trends, and lessons learned in microgrids and distributed generation, along with impediments to be addressed and enablers for success.

Renewable Generation Studies, Lessons Learned
Presented by Nelson Bacalao and Hugo Bashualdo

Thursday, May 26, 2016 | 1:00pm – 2:00pm ET

Renewable generation integration not only impacts operational and engineering processes, but also planning. Transmission and distribution systems were traditionally planned as separated activities . In fact, DG for instance was merely considered a substation load reduction only, which was appropriate for small levels of penetration but grossly inadequate with larger levels where there are reverse flows at times into transmission. The effective integration of transmission and distribution planning is critical not only to utility resource planning, but also to meeting core utility service reliability and transformational growth requirements.

IEEE DEIS presents Online Partial Discharge (PD) Monitoring and Diagnosis of High Voltage (HV) Apparatus
Presented by Dr. Hui Ma and Professor Tapan Saha

Thursday, June 2, 2016 | 1:00pm – 2:00pm ET

In this seminar we present a general framework of applying signal processing and pattern recognition techniques to PD signal analysis. Within this framework, we discuss a number of representative algorithms for PD signal de-noising, dimensionality reduction and feature extraction, multiple PD source separation, and PD source classification in the context of online PD measurement. Case studies using datasets collected from PD measurements in laboratory and at field are presented to demonstrate the applicability of various signal processing techniques in PD signal analysis.

Grid Architecture: Discipline, Methods, and Recent Developments
Presented by Dr. Jeffrey D. Taft

Thursday, June 23, 2016 | 1:00pm – 2:00pm ET

This webinar, presented by Dr. Jeffrey D. Taft, Chief Architect for Electric Grid Transformation, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, will describe the discipline of Grid Architecture as it has been defined in the work done for the US Department of Energy over the last two years. The presentation will cover basic definitions and terms and the purpose, scope, and value of Grid Architecture, followed by a discussion of the shift in paradigms necessary to deal with the complexity of grid modernization. An overview of core principles and methods will provide an understanding of how grid architecture work is actually performed and what kinds of work products are created in the process.

Policies to Accelerate Adoption of Electric and Plug Hybrid Vehicles
Presented by James E. Gover

Monday, July 25, 2016 | 1:00pm – 2:00pm ET

Grid charging of electric vehicles can be deployed to help offset some of the revenues lost from increasing the use of solar power and soften the rapid increase in non-solar generation that will occur after sunset. This webinar, presented by James E. Gover, Professor Emeritus, Kettering University, addresses the various policies of companies, governments (federal, state and city), universities and professional societies that can be deployed to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles in the USA.
