About the Event

As renewable generation grows, its inherent variability will challenge current power system operational practices. Also, if plug-in electric vehicles become popular, uncontrolled charging will strain the electricity grid. Fortunately, ubiquitous communications offers a means of coordinating loads, enabling electricity demand to become a controllable resource that can quickly respond to the needs of the grid. The seminar will discuss the changing characteristics of the electricity grid, and consider control issues that arise due to the highly distributed nature of loads.
