Electrical Engineering Seminar Series

"The Future of Energy: Smart Grid and Beyond" with John D. McDonald, GE Energy Connections - Grid Solutions.

The purpose of this talk is to familiarize participants with a vision for the future of energy.  The talk starts with a discussion of key industry/societal trends in generation, transmission, distribution and the consumer.  The “smarter grid” will highlight the intelligence that has already been implemented, and the new intelligence being added now.  The Smart Grid technology roadmap will discuss the Smart Grid solutions of Distribution Optimization, Transmission Optimization, Asset Optimization, Demand Optimization, Smart Meters and Communications, and Workforce and Engineering Design Optimization.  Three key visionary concepts to be covered are the greater value of the integration of key technology components and the importance of interoperability, the impact of high penetration of rooftop solar PV on the distribution system, and Intelligent Electronic Device (IED) integration and enterprise data management.  Lessons learned in deploying Smart Grid projects will be discussed.
