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 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.

This webinar 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.
The presentation will then illustrate the use of this discipline for practical grid modernization problems, and show some recent results and architectural insights developed during the recent work done for DOE and the utility industry.
Finally, we will conclude with brief remarks on the future work to be done and then accept questions from the audience.

Partial discharge (PD) is a localized breakdown in the insulation system of high voltage (HV) apparatus. PD measurement has been adopted for online condition monitoring and diagnosis of HV apparatus. However, PD is a complicated phenomenon and stochastic in nature. It is still a challenging task to de-noise the measured PD signals, extract representative features from measurement data, and identify PD sources (i.e. insulation defects) that cause discharge inside HV apparatus.
In this webinar 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.

Regulatory initiatives to decarbonize our ecosystem have led to the growth of Distributed Energy Resources (DER), which include Solar-PV, Energy Storage, Demand Response and Electric Vehicles. DER growth has also been led by new innovative technologies. Moreover, recent grid restoration experiences from major storms have shown the potential of DER to provide emergency electricity service. DER is also revolutionizing how consumers value electricity service and reliability. DER provides new opportunities to optimize real-time transmission and distribution grid operations.
This webinar will present the challenges and opportunities of DER for real-time grid operations, and will share lessons learned from recent Advanced Distribution Management Solutions (ADMS) and Distributed Energy Resource Management Solutions (DERMS) deployment projects in integrating, scheduling and dispatching of DER.
