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. 


Flexibility Provision from Distributed Multi-energy Systems
Presented by: Pierluigi Mancarella

Multi-Energy Systems (MES), in which multiple energy carriers are integrated and optimally operated, are key assets to enable low-carbon energy systems. Multi-carrier integration of distributed energy resources via different energy networks generates the so-called distributed MES (DMES). This webinar presents foundational concepts to characterize, model, optimise, and visualise the flexibility that could be provided to the electricity grid by DMES, including the role of integrated energy networks (e.g., electricity, heat and gas) in enabling or constraining power system flexibility. Several examples will be presented with illustrative case studies on current and future DMES practical applications, including technologies and concepts such as: combined heat and power (CHP); combined cooling, heat, and power (CCHP); electric heat pumps, electric boilers, and hybrid (electricity-gas) boilers and heat pumps; power-to- hydrogen and power-to-gas; integrated electricity-hydrogen virtual power plants; power-to-heat; building-to-grid flexibility; virtual energy storage; community energy systems; etc. Read More.

High-Speed Control: A Dire Necessity for Modern Power Grids
Presented by: Sai Akhil Reddy Konakalla

In this webinar, two unique use cases will be used to present the modern grid challenges and discuss solutions. The first is the issue of spinning reserve due to variations in renewable energy, mainly PV cloud events. The second is the issue of sudden reverse power flow into the power station in systems with high renewable penetration and unprecedented sudden load loss. Read More.
