Mtg: Utility Communications for the Modern Grid

by @ 1:36 pm. Filed under ALL, Communications, Electrical/Power, Electronics Design

TUESDAY July 28, 2009
SF Communications Chapter
Speaker: Jerry Ramie, ARC Technical Resources, Inc.
Time: Presentation at 6:30 PM
Cost: none
Place: California PUC Building, 505 Van Ness Ave, San Francisco
RSVP: By email to Tim Ryan,

The existing power grid is aging, overloaded, unstable and incapable of meeting the power quality needs of an Information Economy.? This fast moving overview of the modern grid, and renewable energy’s place in it, details the problems of the existing grid and the features of a modern grid architecture that can address these shortcomings.? The various “roadmaps” proposed to achieve this vision are presented.? An emphasis will be placed on describing the installation and maintenance of the communications overlay required for a modern grid infrastructure and the associated security of the grids IP-based communications systems.
Also described will be the Federal Government’s recently proposed economic stimulus package which contains about $60 Billion for smart grid and green power investments in the next two years.? With this much consensus for moving forward, the various choices in media to support the Advanced Metering Initiative are discussed, along with their relative strengths and weaknesses.
