Beyond Blackouts and Natural Disasters: Recovery and Advancements for a Smarter Grid for the Future
Presented By : Prof Noel Schulz
Date : 2011-11-07, 5:30pm refreshments for 6.00pm lecture
Location : Victoria University, Footscray Park Campus
On Monday 7 Nov 2011, IEEE Victorian section, in collaboration with Victoria University, are pleased to be hosting a presentation by Prof Noel Schulz, covering 21st century approaches to making the electric power grid more fault-tolerant, and strategies for incorporating effective recovery mechanisms to cope with major events when they occur.
While making the electric power system 100% fault tolerant is not practical or economical in most applications, research and development activities within our profession are helping to disseminate best practices and develop new solutions for disaster recovery, and for dealing with future challenges to the electric power grid. This presentation will discuss strategies and approaches being developed by a range of organizations, for the development and dissemination of technical information to create a smarter grid, and to help develop the next generation of utility personnel to deal with these challenges. The IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES) is a major participant in these efforts. Full details of this event and venue information can be viewed via this link.
Our presenter is Prof Noel Schulz, IEEE Power & Energy Society President-elect (2012-2013), and Professor in Electrical & Computer Engineering at Kansas State University, USA. Noel has a broad range of research interests in electric power, crossing many disciplines. Noel is also very active in the IEEE Power and Energy Society, having served as an office-holder in a number of roles, and will be serving the IEEE PES as President in 2012-2013.
