Grid Modernization: Technological Advancements Beyond Smart Grid
This webinar will familiarize participants with a vision for Grid Modernization, focusing on technological advancements beyond Smart Grid. The technological advancements include discussions of key industry/societal trends, Smart Grid concepts, holistic solutions, integration of microgrids and distributed generation, and Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) software applications. The talk will also cover feeder automation business models, managing different types of data, big data, analytics, enterprise data management, Smart Grid standards and interoperability, and Smart Grid deployments and lessons learned.
Big Data, IoT, Enterprise Data Management and the New Data Requirements of Drones and Robotic Inspection Devices
This webinar begins by discussing key industry/societal trends and their impacts. To realize greater benefits from Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) the two types of data within the IED, operational and non-operational, must be managed differently. The Internet of Things (IoT) and its benefits, and examples of new groups of analytics being developed, will be discussed. The importance of convergence of the Operations Technology and Information Technology groups within a utility is emphasized, and its enablement of enterprise data management. The importance of grid modernization industry standards to facilitate integration and interoperability is critical for success. Lastly, the use of new sources of data – unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and robotics – will be described, available data identified, use of the data shown, and data management principles to be implemented discussed.
Key Insights to Career Management
This webinar is designed to discuss managing your career. There are 12 important things to keep in mind when living and managing your career to achieve your goals. These will be explained and explored with examples and photographs based on my 49 years as an engineer, manager and executive managing people’s careers, and 52 years as an IEEE member (IEEE Life Fellow) and IEEE-HKN member. Your career is your career, and understanding your priorities (which can change) and your company’s objectives can help you have a rewarding and fulfilling career.
