TEES, Texas A&M to host Smart Grid Workshop in April
Texas A&M Engineering will host a smart grid workshop April 17 in College Station, Texas.
The workshop is organized by the Smart Grid Center, part of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), and faculty members in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University.
Dr. Mladen Kezunovic, the Eugene E. Webb Professor and the Smart Grid Center director, said the workshop will bring together faculty, staff and students to increase awareness, facilitate scientific exchange leading to collaborative proposal teams and improve the teaching, research and development activities across disciplines in electric transmission, alternative generation sources, storage, grid monitoring, policy, economics and other related fields.
The program will feature presentations by Texas A&M faculty and TEES researchers highlighting existing research and development initiatives; a national perspective from Dr. George W. Arnold, national coordinator for smart grid interoperability at the National Institute of Standards and Technology; and the Texas perspective from Texas A&M former students and opinion leaders in electric energy and smart grid transformation.
