Securing the Grid - Today and Tomorrow - TWIN CITIES PE31 CHAPTER on 23-June-2016

Today's Power Grid is operated, protected and controlled by complex human-machine systems.  As it evolves to a future Smart Grid, this complexity will only increase.  Mr. Michael Ahern P.E. will review current and future challenges to the physical and cyber security for the Power Grid.  Mr. Ahern will review and lead an engaging group discussion of:

  *   the existing grid control architecture;
  *   how it is evolving with the Smart Grid;
  *   the physical attack at PG&E's Metcalf Substation;
  *   the cyber attack on the Ukrainian Power Grid; and
  *   the protective requirements of the North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection (NERC CIP) Standards and their trends.

IEEE Innovative Smart Grid Technologies 2016 - TWIN CITIES PE31 CHAPTER on 06-September-2016

The Seventh Conference on Innovative Smart Grid Technologies (ISGT2016), sponsored by the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES), will be held September 6-9, 2016 at the Radisson Blu Minneapolis Downtown hotel in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
 
The Conference will be a forum for the participants to discuss issues and effective strategies for grid modernization given the changing electric industry landscape due to the advent of information and communication technology and the emergence of renewable and distributed energy resources (DERs). The Conference will feature plenary sessions, panels, technical papers, industry exhibits, and tutorials by experts on smart grid applications and systems integration. The theme for this year will be “Transformation and Advancements for Grid Modernization,” and will include an emphasis on advanced distribution management systems, the integration of distributed energy resources, the seams between distribution and bulk power operations, and the needed approaches for both planning and operations
