Explore smart grid waves of investment and how they affect tomorrow's grid

August 6, 2015 from 1-2 pm EDT

Ever since the term “smart grid” emerged in our industry, it has had multiple definitions that have evolved over time. Looking back, we can identify waves of investment that have shaped the grid to make it smarter, more modern, and more intelligent to improve reliability, efficiency, resiliency, and sustainability. While some of these waves have already swept through much of the industry: smart meters, distribution automation, and consumer and grid analytics; there has been a great influx of new investments with grid-scale renewables, distributed energy resources, asset health and distribution analytics, and microgrids. In parallel, investments in enabling technologies and transmission technologies have helped to strengthen the grid.

Learn how to turn analytics into actionable operation efficiency and the value of leveraging AMI. Join us for this webinar to explore these investments in technologies and how they will affect tomorrow's power system and utility practices.

How to leverage IEC 61850 to optimize grid performance

August 19, 2015 from 1-2 pm EDT

One of the most significant developments in grid reliability is the application of information technology to help optimize grid performance. This is especially true when applied to underground or overhead feeder restoration applications or self-healing applications. Furthermore, the advancements and acceptance of the IEC 61850 standard coupled with lower cost, high-speed, secure, broadband communications provide even faster restoration speeds for automating transfer schemes, significantly reducing outage durations. Distribution planning, protection and control engineers are no longer limited by technology, only their imaginations.

Attend this educational webinar to learn more about the advantages of IEC 61850 in automated transfer schemes and implementation best practices to improve your system reliability.

There's nothing standard about IEC 61850


 

Preparing your distribution grid for the interconnection of solar farms 

November 4, 2015 from 1-2 pm EST

Today's distribution grid was designed and built for centralized generation with limited capacity for reversing power flows and often without controls and communication at the point of use. Subsequently, an increased penetration of solar can have a significant impact on the performance and reliability of the grid. 

Learn how to overcome the challenges of interconnecting distributed energy resources to the grid and how to leverage technology for better load leveling, reliability and stability. Register now to ensure the solar farm on your system becomes an asset, not an issue.

Avoid a hot mess


Optimizing grid efficiency with energy storage

December 8, 2015 from 1-2 pm EST

The distribution grid is changing with the advent of distributed energy resources, but the overall goal remains the same; how to optimize the efficiency and reliability of the distribution grid.  One of the keys to optimizing efficiency is energy storage.

Attend this informative webinar where will be exploring three types of locally-controlled energy storage applications available today that will provide you with solutions for peak shaving / load shifting, capacity firming, and voltage regulation. We will also explore what's coming in software solutions that will enable distribution grid companies to optimize their system through enterprise-wide control and incorporate planning and forecasting of distributed energy resources.
