Seminar Location:   Benwood Auditorium at the Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science Building (EMCS). (RSVP required by April 24).

REGISTRATION is free.

Abstract: This valuable one day seminar introduces the intuitive concepts, fundamental theories, practical technologies, core functionalities and real use cases of the advanced Distribution Automation / Distribution Management System (DA/DMS) applications in Smart Grid. The potential audience would include power system planning/operation engineers, project/product managers, business leaders in power utilities, smart grid solution providers, system developers, research institutes, as well as individual researchers, college students and other individuals working on or interested in the Smart Grid solutions. The course will cover the following break-down topics on DA/DMS: Overall Framework and Architecture of DA/DMS Systems in Smart Grid, Distribution System Operation Models and Advanced Applications for Distribution System Operation, Analysis and Optimization, Distributed Energy Resource (DER) Management and Optimization, Consumer Participation and the Impacts to the Distribution System Operation, DMS system integration with other systems in Smart Grid.
