The DOE-funded Power Systems Engineering Research Center (PSERC) is offering a free public webinar that will address the feasibility of a flexible platform that is needed when designing the framework for the next generation Energy Management System (EMS) and analytics. The base for such a platform has to be the simulation of the power grid itself that can produce Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) measurements with fidelity. This project shows that platforms such as this one can be built to co-simulate the behavior of the power grid, the communication network, and the applications. Although more elaborate simulation platforms will eventually be needed to test production grade designs of controller hardware and software, the models and algorithms are all shown to be feasible.
The webinar will be presented by Anjan Bose, a Regents Professor and the Distinguished Professor of Electric Power Engineering at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, where he also serves as the Site Director of PSERC. He has worked in the electric power industry as well as academe for over 40 years, and from 2012 to 2013, he served the US Department of Energy as a Senior Advisor on the electric power grid in the Obama administration.
The webinar will be held Tuesday, April 5, 2016 from 2-3 p.m. ET. No pre-registration is necessary.
