Live Webinar Events
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 webinars on varying aspects of global grid modernization.
The cost for attending a live webinar event (and the recording and slides) will be based on membership - all IEEE SG Participating Society members will not be charged. If you are interested in joining IEEE and/or an IEEE SG Participating Society, please click here.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Demand-Side Response
Presented by: Ioannis Antonopoulos, Benoit Couraud, & Valentin Robu
Based on a recent review of research works and industrial projects, this webinar details the principles of the most relevant AI techniques and will explain how they are used in the context of DDSR. In addition, a number of directions for future research in this area will be discussed. Read More.
Grid Energy Storage - Consumer & Utility Roles
Presented by: Ahmed Zobba
Electrical Energy Storage has played three primary roles. First, it reduces the cost of electricity costs by storing electricity during off-peak times for use at peak times. Secondly, it improves the reliability of the power supply by supporting the users during power interruptions. Thirdly, it improves power quality, frequency, and voltage. Electrical Energy storage is expected to solve many problems, including excessive power fluctuation and undependable power supply due to the use of high penetration levels of renewable energy. Electric vehicles with batteries are the most promising technology to replace fossil fuels by electricity from mostly renewable energy sources. This presentation will highlight the needs and the roles for electrical energy storage. Read More.
FERC Order 841 and Energy Storage 101
Presented by: Rao Konidena
FERC Order 841 treats storage as a generation asset. This webinar will present what stakeholders need to know about the costs and benefits of storage, so that storage is valued appropriately for consumer benefits. Read More.
Challenges of Electric Vehicles for Power Systems
Presented by: Sahand Liasi
Electric vehicles (EVs) are getting more popular and this means that conventional internal combustion vehicles will be replaced by EVs soon. While EVs can bring various benefits in different aspects (such as higher efficiency, less urban air pollution, etc.), exploiting a huge number of EVs without preparing a proper infrastructure would lead to different undesirable consequences. To cope with the challenges, different solutions have been suggested. In this presentation, the challenges and some of the main solutions will be discussed. Read More.
