TEES Smart Grid Center will host fourth annual workshop April 28
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station’s Smart Grid Center will host the fourth annual Smart Grid Workshop at the Memorial Student Center on the Texas A&M University campus on April 28.
This year's workshop will focus on “Smart Grids Big Data.” Big data in smart electric grids comes from many domains associated with power system operation (generation, transmission and distribution, customers, services and markets), as well as other seemingly unrelated, yet synergistically intertwined domains such as other energy commodity markets (gas and oil), environment and weather. The significance of this type of data is in the diversity of its sources, growth rate and spatiotemporal characteristics.
The workshop will include invited talks, panels and focus group discussions, as well as a student poster session. There will be opportunities to interact with faculty and students from a number of universities, as well as with professionals representing industry, government/national labs and several other organizations interested in the topic.
Registration includes workshop participation, refreshments, a post-workshop reception and student poster displays. The registration deadline is April 21. After this deadline, the registration fees remain the same, but registration includes only workshop participation with no lunch or post-workshop reception due to the catering arrangement deadlines.
