Webinar: The Smart Grid: From Appliance to Generator and Back

by @ 4:38 pm. Filed under ALL, Communications, Electrical/Power, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt

IEEE Oregon Section Webinar, with the SF Bay Area Council
The Smart Grid: From Appliance to Generator and Back
– September 8, 2010 ? – 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
– $99 for IEEE members; $150 for non-members, $25 for full-time students
A systems view of how the Smart Grid provides interactions between the end uses of electricity (“appliances” or industrial processes) and utilities, viewed from the perspective of the technologies, standards, and policies that will enable those interactions and foster innovation and interoperability. For engineers, policy makers, and entrepreneurs who want to understand the Smart Grid in order to make better professional, technical and business decisions.
Talks: ? – The Challenge of Synchrophasors and Wide Area Control ? – Smart Grid Communications ? – Managing Supply and Demand ? – Smart Grid Cyber Security ? (and more)
